Searchlight Resources Inc. (“Searchlight” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SCLT)(OTC:CNYCF) is pleased to announce the results of samples collected during site visits to the Henning-Maloney past-producing gold mine located in Saskatchewan, approximately 7 kilometres southwest of the Flin Flon Mining camp

During site visits to the Henning-Maloney mine area, a total of 13 grab and chip samples were collected and submitted for analysis (Table 1). The chip samples were collected from existing trenches and surface showings, including exposed quartz veins around the historic mining area.

“These excellent results indicate high grade gold on surface, particularly from outcrop and historic trenches, as Searchlight prepares to drill this area to verify the Henning-Maloney deposit, and to test the extension of the gold mineralization at depth”, stated Stephen Wallace, CEO.

Permitting application for a near-term drilling program at Henning-Maloney is underway. Drilling will commence when permits are granted on the Henning-Maloney and Beatty South VMS targets.

The Henning-Maloney Gold target is located approximately one kilometre south of the Company’s flagship project, the Rio Gold Mine, and within the 49.9 sq. km Bootleg Lake claims. These claims host 4 past-producing gold mines, three of which – Henning-Maloney, Rio and Wekach – are all connected by the Rio Fault system. Additional gold and base metal targets are also present along this fault system.

Sample Analysis

Samples 029143 to 029150 and samples 426551 to 426553 were collected and shipped to Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) in Ancaster, Ontario by Stephen Wallace, P.Geo of Searchlight Resources. The samples were first analysed with Fire Assay Package 1A1 – Au Fire Assay – INAA – 30 gram sample and Multi Element Package ICP-MS Ultra trace 1. Subsequently, samples with Au greater than 5.0 g/t (above Au detection limit), were analysed with Fire Assay Package 1A3 – AA-Au (Au- Fire Assay Gravimetric) – 30 gram sample.

Samples 37474 and 37475 were collected by a geologist from the Axiom Exploration Group, and transported directly to TSL Laboratories Inc. in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The samples were first analysed with Fire Assay Package FA/AA- Au Fire Assay – 30 gram sample and Multi Element Package ICP-AES Aqua Regia. Sample 37474 was above Au detection limit and subsequently analysed with Fire Assay Package FA/ Gravimetric – 30 gram sample.
