Tarsis Channel Samples 220 g/t Silver and 4.74% Lead Over 6.40 m at Tim, Yukon

Tarsis Channel Samples 220 g/t Silver and 4.74% Lead Over 6.40 m at Tim, Yukon 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/11/13 -- Tarsis
Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:TCC) ("Tarsis" and "the Company") is
pleased to announce assay results from its road accessible Tim
property, located in southern Yukon. During September 2013, a short,
focused work program was conducted to re-evaluate an historical zone
of silver-lead rich Carbonate Replacement Mineralization (CRM)
exposed by mechanized trenching in 1988. Historical chip sampling
across the zone reportedly returned 352 g/t silver and 9.12% lead
across 4.00 m. In addition to this exposure, similar mineralization
was also reported in adjacent trenches 180 and 250 m on either side
of the central trench and no drill testing has ever been undertaken
on this zone. 
Tarsis' field crew relocated the central historical trench (T-3) and
exposed the main mineralized showing with the use of hand tools. A
total of 6.4 m of footwall alteration and CRM were exposed at the
base of the trench. Three series of sawn channel samples were taken
across the exposure at approximately 1 m spacing between channels.
The central channel tested a partial exposure of footwall alteration
and the CRM while the outer channels only tested the partially
exposed CRM. Weighted average assays for each of the channel series
are shown below.

Elevated accessory elements in the mineralized zone include zinc,
arsenic, antimony, bismuth, indium, gold and tin. Gold values in
particular were elevated between 200 and 700 ppb and indium values
range from 1.5 ppm to 500ppm with an average of 225 ppm. All zinc
assays were less than 1% likely due to near surface leaching.  
The CRM at this particular locale is hosted within a steep
southeasterly dipping structural zone and is dominantly comprised of
manganiferous iron carbonate and porous dark brown limonite. Hand
trenching did not expose the hangingwall contact of the mineralized
zone due to slough and extensive downslope cover.  
Historical soil geochemical response defines three distinct linear
northwest trending silver-lead anomalies, each of which is
continuously defined for a strike length of roughly 2,000 m. All
historical trenching was conducted along the trace of the central
geochemical anomaly but the soil sample coverage was not completed
over the mineralized zone encountered in trench T-3 or northwest
along strike.  
History 
The Tim property was initially staked in 1983 to cover
silver-lead-zinc stream sediment geochemical anomalies and a
favourable geological environment with potential for carbonate-hosted
mineralization similar to that at the nearby Midway/Silvertip project
owned by Silvercorp Metals Inc. 
Soil sampling, stream sediment sampling, geophysical surveys and
trenching were carried out during the 1980's; however the property
was not drill tested at that time. 
Tarsis acquired the property in 2007 and subsequently optioned it to
International KRL Resources (now Acme Resources Inc.) which carried
out a limited five hole diamond drill program in 2008, largely
targeting Induced Polarization geophysical anomalies. The nearest
drill hole to the central trench T-3 mentioned above is located
roughly 520 m away and was drilled parallel to the interpreted
downdip orientation of the mineralized zone. 
Sawn samples were approximately 4 cm in width, resulting in
relatively large samples per interval, which the Company believes
improves the reliability of the sampling. Samples were delivered to
ALS Minerals in Whitehorse, Yukon for sample preparation and all
analyses were completed in North Vancouver. Silver and 50 other
elements were analysed using ICPMS techniques.
