Entourage Extends Gold Mineralization at Black Raven to 400-meter Strike Length, Hemlo Greenstone Belt

Marketwired

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire -02/13/12)- Entourage Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: EMT.V - News) is pleased to report that drill holes BR11-05 and BR11-06 intersected the Super G vein discovery extending the strike length with visible gold mineralization to 400 meters. Mineralization remains wide open for expansion in all directions. The 3000+ meter Phase II exploration/delineation drill program at the 100-percent-owned Black Raven gold property is currently underway.

Full assay results of significant intercepts (greater than 1 g/t gold or presence of visible gold) from the initial six holes are displayed below in Table 1. The results confirm the nuggety nature of the Super G quartz vein, typical of Archean lode-gold systems. This demonstrates that anomalous gold is present in parallel structures to the Super G Vein.

Entourage's new discovery confirms the potential of other styles of gold mineralization, overlooked during the exploration rush after the initial discovery of Hemlo.

The Phase I, 1,100 meter drill program, focused on the central zone of the Super G Shear, as well as prominent magnetic, resistivity, and geochemical anomalies on the remainder of the property. Intercepts from the Phase I drill program may be the highest grade found outside of the Hemlo Mines, in the Hemlo Greenstone Belt since 1981. All six holes intersected gold mineralization along the Super G Shear Zone. BR11-01 returned 0.3 meters of 128.0 g/t Au, at a down dip depth of 40 metres. The discovery hole, BR11-04 returned results of 2.38 meters of 44.57 g/t Au (which includes 0.95 meters of 107 g/t Au), 110 meters down-dip from BR11-01. This shear-hosted intercept consisted of a breccia vein that is similar in style to other high-grade Archean lode-gold deposits in the Canadian Shield.

Entourage has yet to test down-dip from hole BR11-04, and along strike to the south under a shallow pond. Ice based drilling is being prepared for these step-out holes to be completed prior to the spring break-up.

The Black Raven property is located 30 kilometers northwest of the Hemlo Mines, and 14 kilometers northeast of the town of Marathon. The property is accessible from a logging road which connects to the Trans-Canada Highway. This logging road flanks the property on the southwest side. Otherwise, access to the property is by boat or aircraft.

A comprehensive quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program is in place to monitor precision and accuracy of the assay results. All core samples are submitted with certified reference materials (standards, blanks and duplicates). Internal standards and blank samples were inserted after every sample that contained visible gold for quality control purposes. Assay samples are taken from BQTW core, sawed in half along the core axis with one-half sent to AGAT Laboratories in Mississauga, Ontario and the other half retained by Entourage for future reference. Samples are analyzed by AGAT Laboratories in Mississauga using a 500g Screen Metallics Procedure. AGAT laboratories are ISO 9001 accredited.

Entourage's exploration activity is under the supervision of John Labrecque, P.Geo., Senior Geologist and John C. Florek, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Entourage Metals. Mr. Labrecque and Mr. Florek are Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Florek prepared and approved the information contained in this release.
