IRW-Press: Integra Gold Intersects 91.03 G/T Gold Over 1.0 Meter, 73.75 G/T Over 1.0 Meter And 29.69 G/T AU Over 3.0 Meters At Parallel Zone

Integra Gold Corp. (TSX-V: ICG) ('Integra' or the 'Company') is pleased to announce final results from its fall/winter 2013 Parallel zone definition drill program at the Lamaque Gold Project located in Val-d’Or, Québec. The Company completed 12,589 m in 40 drill holes in 2013 on the Parallel Zone, one of its highest grade zones located in the northern part of the Lamaque Project. Results announced today are from the final 20 holes of the program. The Company currently has three drill rigs operating at the Triangle Zone with a total of 7,050 m in 18 holes completed since January 4, 2014. No assay results are available to date.

“Preliminary interpretation of these results has confirmed the continuity of high-grade mineralization between existing drill holes, and most importantly, continue to prove that our geological model works. This model is used for both resource estimation and mine planning, and will greatly influence our plans in the future. It is very encouraging to see that mineralized structures at the Parallel Zone appear to be quite predictable. With all results from Parallel drilling now received, we will proceed with a resource estimate update which will be released later this year,” commented Company President and CEO, Stephen de Jong. “These results along with the results disclosed earlier this month will not be incorporated into our upcoming preliminary economic assessment (“PEA”), but will be included in future economic evaluations.”

Drill result highlights include:

Parallel Definition Drilling Program

Drilling at the Parallel Zone focused on reducing the drill spacing to 25-35 m centers for the upper portion of the deposit, above the 300 m vertical threshold. Drill holes had been previously been spaced approximately 50 to 75 meters apart.

The objective of the program was to transfer inferred resources into the indicated category and to confirm mineralization continuity between existing drill holes. Preliminary indications are that mineralization is continuous between drill holes as well as with a number of the high grade intercepts reported. The majority of holes disclosed today intersected mineralization where the Company’s geological model predicted it should occur, providing further confidence in the model moving forward. The most significant and high grade intervals continue to come from Zone 6 which appears to be the most consistent and predictable structure at the Parallel Zone.

2014 Lamaque Drill Program

Planned drilling for 2014 at the Lamaque project has been set at a minimum of 40,000 m. This includes a 20,000 meter definition program at the Triangle Zone, a definition drilling at the Fortune Zone, and exploration drilling at Plug No. 5 and Mine No. 3 targets. The Plug No. 5 and Mine No. 3 targets are not currently included in the Lamaque Project’s total resource. The Company intends to conduct resource estimation on these targets in the latter part of 2014.

Project and Company Profile

Integra’s Lamaque gold project is located in the heart of the Val-d’Or gold camp in the Province of Québec, Canada, approximately 550 km northwest of Montréal. Québec is rated one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. Infrastructure, human resources and mining expertise are readily available.

The Company’s primary objective is to continue to prove up additional resources while advancing the existing resource towards production. The project is divided into three main clusters of mineralization, the North, South and West Cluster. The North Cluster consists of the Parallel, Fortune, No. 5 Plug, and No. 3 Mine zones and is located approximately 1 km northwest from the South Cluster, which includes the No. 4 Plug, Triangle and Triangle South zones. The Sixteen Zone and No. 6 Vein form the West Cluster.

Qualified Person

The Lamaque exploration project is under the direct supervision of Hervé Thiboutot, Eng. and Senior Vice-President of the company, and Francois Chabot, Eng. and Operations and Engineering Manager of the Company, both Qualified Person (“QP”) as defined by National Instrument 43-101, and Alain-Jean Beauregard, P.Geo., and Daniel Gaudreault, Eng., Geo. of Géologica Inc., both independent QP as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The Company’s QPs have reviewed the technical content of this release.

Quality Assurance - Quality Control (“QA/QC”)

Thorough QA/QC protocols are followed on the project including insertion of duplicate, blank and standard samples in all drill holes. The core samples are submitted directly to ALS Laboratory Group and Bourlamaque Labs in Val-d'Or for preparation and analysis. Analysis is conducted on 1 assay-ton aliquots. Analysis of Au is performed using fire assay method with atomic absorption finish, with a gravimetric finish completed for samples exceeding 5 g/t Au, or a metallic sieve assay for samples containing visible gold. When available the gravimetric or metallic sieve assay results are used for the reported composite intervals.
