Fjordland and Sumac Plan 2,500 Metres of Drilling and 2,000 Metres of Trenching
at the Dillard Property, Southern British Columbia, in 2014 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 8, 2014) - Fjordland
Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FEX) is pleased to report that Sumac Mines Ltd.,
a subsidiary of Sumitomo Metal Mining Co. Ltd. of Japan, has approved a 2014
budget and work program, estimated at approximately $950,000, for the Dillard
porphyry copper-gold project located between Merritt and Princeton in southern
BC. The programs, which are a follow up to last year's approximately
$800,000 work programs, will include approximately 2,500 metres (m) of diamond
drilling, approximately 2,000 m of trenching and geological mapping and
prospecting over the entire property. Fjordland will be the operator of the
At Dillard West, drilling will test for additional mineralization, including
possible depth extensions of mineralization in holes that bottomed in
mineralization during Placer Dome's 1991 historic diamond drilling program
(2030 m in 11 holes) on the Dill (Primer South) property. Drilling in 1991
intersected 207 m grading 0.25% Cu. A limited 2013 diamond drilling program by
Fjordland, consisting of 1,558 m in four deep holes, included an assay interval
of 403 m grading 0.136% Cu and 71.6 ppb Au, including 158.5 m grading 0.201% Cu
and 93.7 ppb Au. Numerous other intersections of copper and gold mineralization
were reported in a news release dated October 24, 2013. Much more drilling is
required to establish the size, geometry and tenor of the copper and gold
mineralization. The Dillard West target, measuring approximately 1,400 m by
1,200 m, includes coincident induced polarization (IP) chargeability and copper
and gold in soils anomalies. Chalcopyrite, pyrite and minor bornite
mineralization occurs within altered Nicola Group andesitic rocks and coeval
intrusive dioritic rocks. 
At Dillard East, two reconnaissance diamond drill holes completed in 2013 by
Fjordland tested an IP chargeability and metal factor anomaly. The area tested
was only a small portion of the 2,000 m by 1,500 m target; several other areas
with coincident copper and gold soil anomalies remain to be tested, including
an area where a grab sample assaying 1.64% copper was obtained in 2011. 
Tom Schroeter, President & CEO of Fjordland states: "We look forward
to an expanded drilling program on the Dillard West target this season, as well
as a trenching program on the Dillard East target, to guide additional
drilling. We plan to start work in June."
