Entourage Metals Expands Land Position Between Probe Mines and IAMGOLD's
Deposits, Ridout Deformation Zone, Eastern Ontario
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 --
Entourage Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: EMT) is pleased to report that
the Company has acquired through staking, an additional 13.4 square
kilometers (84 claim units) of land in the Swayze Greenstone Belt,
Ontario. Entourage's 222-square kilometer October Gold Property is
the located between Probe Mine's Borden Gold Property, and IAMGOLD's
Cote Lake and Jerome Deposits (previously Trelawney Mining).
Entourage's extensive claim package is one of the largest in this
emerging area of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt.
The October Gold Property is located near Benton Township. The
property straddles a portion of the Ridout Deformation Zone,
considered to possibly be the western extension of the
Cadillac-Larder Lake Deformation Zone. The Cadillac 'break' hosts the
Kirkland Lake and Kerr Addison-Chesterville gold deposits with
associated with historic production exceeding 49 million ounces of
The Ridout Deformation Zone hosts Probe Mine's Borden Gold Deposit
with Indicated Resource of 3.68 million ounces of gold and Inferred
Resources of 625,000 ounces of gold (see Probe Mines Press Release
01-15-2013) and IAMGOLD's Cote Lake Gold Deposit with Indicated
Resource of 3.56 million ounces of gold; and Inferred Resource of
4.66 million ounces of gold (see IAMGOLD's Press Release 04-10-2012).
Entourage's claims are centered between the two recent discoveries;
approximately 50 km southeast of the Borden Gold Deposit and 35 km
northwest of the Cote Lake Deposit. Teck Resources also has active
claims located west of Entourage's October Gold Property.
Previous work by Entourage included Soil Gas Hydrocarbon (SGH)
sampling, reconnaissance level gravity geophysical survey,
lithogeochemistry, and geological mapping. Entourage identified two
strong SGH gold anomalies at the October Gold Property during these
recent surface exploration programs. Of two large anomalies
identified by Entourage, the western anomaly at October Gold has a
footprint of 1.5 km by 3.0 km and the eastern anomaly has a footprint
of 2.0 km by 2.0 km. SGH is an emerging geochemical exploration
technique that has been employed with success in covered areas of the
Canadian Shield. These two SGH anomalies coincide with a strong

Entourage collected 251 grab samples in the 2012 program. 10 samples
ranging from 40 ppb to 9,230 ppb Au were identified. The highest grab
sample, collected along a sub-parallel structure to the deformation
zone, yielded 9.23 g/t Au was taken from a highly-altered,
quartz-carbonate replacement zone measuring approximately three
meters in width along a yet undetermined strike length. This
historical occurrence was previously known as the Woman River

These coincident results of geochemical and geophysical anomalies on
the Property warrant future geologic and geophysical work, as well as
trenching and diamond drilling.
Entourage's exploration work at October Gold was performed under the
supervision of John C. Florek, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for
Entourage Metals and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Rob
