A.I.S. Resources Limited ( TSX: AIS, OTCQB: AISSF ) (the "Company" or "AIS) has completed its first drilling campaign at its Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project, in Victoria, Australia. Thirty one holes in three lines were drilled to a depth of 60 metres using percussion and reverse circulation drilling. Significant quartz intercepts were encountered close to the gravity anomaly (yellow area). Examination of the lithology showed that we had intercepted the same age of turbidite shales that are present at Kirkland Lake's Fosterville Gold mine. These shales lie underneath the Permian gravels that also contain gold on the exploration licence.

Phil Thomas, CEO commented, "The drill program at our Fosterville-Toolleen Gold Project is proving to be a great success as we've shown that we are in the right area to discover tension veins and spurs full of quartz with gold mineralization. In holes 27 to 31 gold was identified in the assays and this is just the beginning of our drilling program. Using percussion and RC drilling is very economical. Given that quartz gold mineralization occurs in wide quartz veins, fence line drilling and soil sampling will allow us to detect arsenic and other pathfinder elements in these mineralized systems."

Mineralization at Fosterville-Toolleen occurs near the fault intersections where the yellow gravity high is located and ringed by the red line in Fig 2 above.

"It seems we have located the right area to drill, with major quartz intercepts," according to Denis Walsh, AIS' Chief Geologist. "Now we have to better define the structure to identify the mineralized corridors. Arsenic and other pathfinder elements may be very important for our exploration which we are assaying for now. Ore zones at the Fosterville Gold mine are between 2 and 30 m wide and generally conform to the trend of the structural zones. There is also a lithological control which localises mineralisation in competent rock types exhibiting brittle fracturing and brecciation along zones of weakness, which provide open spaces for fluid-flow. The interplay of rock type with folding and faulting produces secondary structures, which although quite localised, host higher-grade gold mineralisation. That's our exploration target."

Kirkland Lake Gold Announces Receipt of Notices for Investigation and Improvement by Environmental Protection Authority Victoria

Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. (" Kirkland Lake Gold " or the " Company ") (TSX:KL) (NYSE:KL) (ASX:KLA) today reported that the Company has been advised by the Environmental Protection Authority ("EPA") Victoria of the Victorian Government that the EPA has determined that low-level frequency noise (in the range of 16-20 Hz) is being emitted by the Fosterville Mine.

The EPA has provided the Company with a Notice to Investigate and an Improvement Notice focused on the low-level frequency noise which it believes is emanating from the mine. Included within the notices are stated timelines covering a period of just over two months for investigating and resolving the issue of low-frequency noise as well as reporting to the EPA on modifications introduced and new testing completed. In addition, the EPA has indicated to the Company that additional action may be taken by the EPA that could result in restrictions on the use of certain equipment, primarily surface ventilation fans and surface drill rigs in the south portion of the mining lease, during the night, while the remediation period is completed. The potential impact of such measures on the Fosterville operations, should they be introduced, is currently being investigated.

Management at Fosterville has been aware of concerns expressed by residents in recent months regarding low-level frequency noise and has taken steps to evaluate and address these concerns. As part of these efforts, Fosterville commissioned two independent studies on noise levels produced by the mine. The studies were completed by accredited noise and acoustic specialist firms based in Australia, with both studies concluding that all mine generated noise was within regulatory limits.

Sir Laurence Gold Discovery Grows To Over 1km Strike Length: AC Drilling Completed And Diamond Core Drilling Underway

Sir Laurence Gold Discovery Grows To Over 1km Strike Length: AC Drilling Completed And Diamond Core Drilling Underway

Kingwest Resources Limited (ASX:KWR) CEO, Ed Turner commented:

To get significant gold intersections, including bedrock mineralisation, on every line drilled to date at Sir Laurence is exceptional. To date these cover a strike length of 1km and mineralisation is open in all directions. Some of our best results, such as 2m @ 1.6 g/t Au from 76m in KGA067O, have been at the end of drill lines and therefore there remains a lot of additional drilling required before the limits of mineralisation are defined. We now look forward to seeing what the diamond core drilling intersects and anticipate initial results before Christmas. We also look forward to the assay results from the remainder of the Sir Laurence holes and the regional holes."
