The Senneville South and East Properties are part of the Company's Senneville Claim Group comprising Senneville South, Senneville East and Senneville West, all situated in the Eastern Region of the Val-d'Or Gold Camp. Xander's Senneville Claim Group is comprised of over 23,000 acres and is contiguous in the South to Probe Metals Inc. (TSXV: PRB), contiguous with Monarch Mining Corporation (TSX: GBAR) to the North/East and adjacent to Eldorado Gold Corporation (TSX: ELD ) in the South.

The operator of the previous drilling o n the Senneville Claim Group conducted in 2012 was present at the drill site and confirmed that the mineralization encountered in the current drill program was the same as in SV-12-01 which returned 9.79gpt. /1.0m Au (ref: GM68366) and SV-12-03 which returned 11.03gpt /1m Au (ref: GM68366). The current drilling covered approximately 361 meters along strike also encountered the same mineralization in all three holes. Other areas of the Senneville Claim Group have not been systematically explored for gold as the focus of historical work was largely on the VMS (volcanogenic massive sulfide ore deposits) potential.

James Hirst, CEO of the Company stated, "The first 3 of 9 holes have been completed and the geologists are pleased with the progress. The next 6 drill holes will continue to test the strike length and extend it further. The systematic approach and compilation efforts over the last year are truly paying dividends as the more work we put into the Senneville Claim Group the more understanding we have, and the more accreditive are the Claims."

Overview

The Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec, Canada, is the world’s largest mineral-rich greenstone geological belt, hosting many major gold and base metal deposits. The prolific region contains a gold-mining history unsurpassed by most gold districts, having yielded spectacular 180 million ounces of gold since the discovery of its first mining camps in the early 1900s.

The Abitibi combines the perfect storm of government stability and high-grade mineralization discovery potential. One company looking to make the next big discovery is Xander Resources (TSXV:XND, OTCQB:XNDRF, FWB:1XI), a junior exploration company focused on developing highly prospective gold properties within Canada. The company currently has three projects located across three gold camps on the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec.
