(TSX VENTURE:ABI)(AML.F)(AML.F) (the "Company"), is pleased to announce that additional high grade gold intersections were found near surface in the 2013 drilling program at the Elder mine, northwestern Quebec.

Results were as follows:
|HOLE NO.||FROM||TO||LENGTH |
Holes E13-60 and E13-74 were reported previously in a Press Release dated July 30, 2013.
Holes E13-61, E13-62, E13-63, E13-67 and E13-75 had lower values.
Hole E13-77 was drilled in vein #3 and the best result from 50.75 m to 51.85 m was 3.30 g/t Au.
Hole E13-78 had a very good gold intersection at depth, below the 8th level, in vein #1. It was reported in a Press Release dated July 15, 2013.
Holes E13-59 to E13-78 were drilled to increase the resources and to upgrade inferred resources into indicated resources. On the average, results were quite good.
At the mine, the development program is progressing well. We now have about 15,000 tonnes of mineralized material on the stockpile. Aurbec received a confirmation that a C.A. to stockpile and to treat our material will be received this week as expected. The transportation of material from Abcourt to Aurbec will start next week. The mill will be available at the beginning of October. In the last 3 months of 2013, we expect to process 39,000 tonnes through the mill.
