Amarc Resources executive chairman, Bob Dickinson, said:

Our Amarc team has made an exciting new bulk tonnage porphyry copper-molybdenum-silver discovery at IKE in the heartland of British Columbia’s producing porphyry copper mines. The extent, continuity and grade of the mineralization encountered indicate important potential resource volumes. It is very encouraging that long, continuous intercepts at IKE have returned copper equivalent grades in the range of those for operating copper mines in the province. Amarc is planning an expanded drill program at IKE in 2015, with the goal of fully delineating the copper-molybdenum-silver deposit.
