Elgin Mining Releases Further Drill Results at the Bjorkdal Gold Mine

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/14/14 -- Elgin Mining Inc. (TSX:ELG)(TSX:ELG.WT) ("Elgin Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to announce further drill results from its exploration program at its wholly-owned Bjorkdal Gold Mine ("Bjorkdal Mine") in Sweden. This underground drilling is part of an ongoing program to expand the underground resource and to define areas of higher-grade mineralization. The current drilling is a follow-up to the exploration work reported during 2012 and 2013, which identified a new gold vein system ("Lake Zone") located adjacent to active mining areas that are only 200 to 400 metres below surface.

This most recent drilling was planned to test the up-dip and down-dip extensions of the Lake Zone vein system and the down-dip extensions of the 610, 620 and Main Zone vein systems, located to the southeast (see attached map). The areas of drilling of 610, 620, and Main vein systems are in zones that are actively being mined, and have produced very good mill feed grades. These zones are developed on several levels and the Company plans to continue to open up these very prospective areas for active mining later in 2014. The Lake Zone is also being extensively developed and the Company expects to be stoping a number of these veins starting in Q2/2014.

The results were very positive for all vein systems drilled, with some of the best intercepts to date including (see Table 1 and Map 1):


--  Hole DDU2013-039, which returned 2.75 metres of 2.18 g/t Au, and a
    further 14.6 metres of 7.35 g/t Au 
--  Hole DDU2013-020, which returned 2.20 metres of 22.84 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-015, which returned 5.50 metres of 3.22 g/t Au; and a
    further 2.40 metres of 18.38 g/t Au, and a further 1.60 metres of 7.11
    g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-029, which returned 1.60 metres of 10.25 g/t Au, and a
    further 0.35 metres of 162.5 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-030, which returned 1.00 metres of 33.78 g/t Au; 

Additional highlights also include (see Table 1 and Map 1):


--  Hole DDU2013-010, which returned 1.10 metres of 19.51 g/t Au, and a
    further 2.4 metres of 4.71 g/t Au, and 4.75 metres of 2.11 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-011, which returned 2.80 metres of 4.18 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-012, which returned 1.00 metres of 7.06 g/t Au, and a
    further 1.05 metres of 7.21 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-014, which returned 3.55 metres of 3.22 g/t Au, and a
    further 0.60 metres at 29.40 g/t Au, and 1.25 metres at 2.37 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-016, which returned 1.20 metres of 50.64 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-019, which returned 0.86 metres of 54.66 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-021, which returned 4.50 metres of 4.27 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-022, which returned 3.45 metres of 2.50 g/t Au, and a
    further 2.70 metres of 6.75 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-027, which returned 1.50 metres of 9.39 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-030, which returned 1.00 metres of 33.78 g/t Au; 
--  Hole DDU2013-032, which returned 1.45 metres of 8.15 g/t Au; and 
--  Hole DDU2013-037, which returned 1.80 metres of 1.80 g/t Au. 

Commenting on the results, Mr. Patrick Downey, President and CEO, stated, "These results continue to show that the Bjorkdal orebody is open along strike and up and down-dip and the underground resource continues to expand. The results also show that the higher grade veins within all zones continue down dip and, due to the nature and configuration of the orebody, can be accessed with minimal development. We also recently had an outside consultant complete a structural and geological review of the deposit which showed that the zones of higher grade are located within repeat folds within the orebody. This work has led to the identification of some priority open pit and underground drill targets nearby and alongside current working areas of the pit and underground mines. We expect to begin testing these targets later this year."

Qualified Person

Exploration at the Bjorkdal Mine is being conducted under the supervision of George Friesen, P.Eng., who is the Company's Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Friesen has also reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this news release as applicable.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control ("QA/QC") Procedures for the Bjorkdal Mine

In order to minimize the effects of the coarse nugget gold at the Bjorkdal Mine, the Company has elected to submit 100% of the core for analysis, rather than retaining half of the core for archive. This provides a much larger sample for gold analysis and theoretically a more representative result. The core is logged and photographed and, for the zones sampled, the entire core is shipped to ALS Chemex laboratory in Pitea, Sweden and 500 grams are analyzed for gold using an accelerated cyanide leach process. A rigorous QA/QC program is employed that involves the insertion of blanks and certified standards.
