TORONTO, ONTARIO - (November 28, 2013) Rainbow Resources Inc. ('Rainbow' or 'the Company') (TSX VENTURE:RBW)(RIINF) is pleased to announce that it has received assay results from its recent field mapping and sampling program at its key Big Strike Project in the West Kootenay Mining District near Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.
Rainbow received encouraging results from the Big Strike Project's Whitewater, Referendum and Gold Viking properties and a technical report is currently being prepared which will contain an in depth analysis of these results and recommendations for further exploration including priority targets for a future diamond drilling program.
Rock saw channel sampling at the Whitewater site returned values of 14.2 g/t Au over a width of 1.2m and Rock chip samples taken along strike returned values up to 85.3 g/t Au. Showings and adits at the Whitewater site show continuous banded veins from .5 - 2m exposed on a continuous trend over 500m. Vein systems striking N55?E with variable steep dips trending east showed strong mineralization of chalcopyrite, pyrite, pyrrhotite and molybdenum.
Chip samples taken from outcrop at the Referendum site returned values up to 35.6 g/t Au. Vein exposures indicate the presence of an echelon shear filling mineralized zone. Numerous trenches expose banded quartz veins up to 2m in width dipping vertically over 400m extend East to West. Visible gold was present in dark banded quartz veins.
Rock chip samples from the Gold Viking property returned values up to 6.3 g/t Au and 130 g/t Ag. Underground workings show dense mineralized quartz veining with open extent along strike (N30?E) and steeply dipping East. Mineralization included galena, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, and pyrite.
Table 1 provides additional highlights from the assay results.
