Meryllion Announces Results from Three New Mineralized Breccia Zones at Its Cerro Amarillo Cu-Mo-Au Property in Argentina

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Meryllion Resources Corporation ("Meryllion" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MYR) is pleased to announce the rock sampling results from the three recently discovered breccia bodies at the La Blanca prospect at its Cerro Amarillo project in west central Argentina. The La Blanca prospect lies in the southwest quadrant of the 168 km2 Cerro Amarillo property which contains at least three high-priority prospects, in addition to a number of other colour/alteration anomalies as described in the Company's news release of January 20, 2014.

The three breccia pipes form part of the La Blanca system which comprises extensive hydrothermal alteration developed over a six km strike, and includes zones of quartz+pyrite with argillic overprinting developed over a distance of at least two km in which the three breccia zones were discovered over the course of routine detailed mapping. Grab samples from both float and outcrop were taken during the mapping of this topographically challenging area, and some 136 samples were submitted to the accredited facilities of ALS Chemex laboratory in Argentina for analysis. The analytical results of this sampling are shown in Table 1 and Figure 1.

The assay results support that La Blanca is a very prospective system. The results range up-to 8,590 ppm (0.86%) Cu, 170 ppm Mo and 731 ppb Au. At the Main Breccia zone, values up to 0.375% Cu are found in outcrop, while many float samples found downslope to the west of the Main Zone returned results as high as 0.18% Cu. It should be noted that sampling of the Main Zone is presently confined to the very southwest corner of the outcropping pipe due to safety considerations imposed by the difficult topography. The clasts of breccia in this area are angular to sub-rounded, and the matrix between the fragments is dominated by gossan developed after sulphide, with minor quartz, hematite, calcite, and gypsum. Secondary copper minerals (malachite and azurite) were observed both in outcrop and in float near the southern limit of the exposure of this pipe. Outcrop samples from the 150 m Breccia zone returned the highest values of Cu, at 0.86% Cu, while the 70 m Breccia zone is enriched in gold, with a sample returning a value of nearly 0.5 g/t (457 ppb) Au.

In addition to analyzing for Cu, Mo, and Au, ALS Chemex also analyzed for other elements, including Pb and Zn which typically occur in veins peripheral to porphyry systems. None of the samples from the La Blanca are high in either Pb or Zn, yet are strongly anomalous in Cu, Mo, and Au. This suggests that the three mineralized breccia zones at La Blanca are located near the core of this mineralizing system.

The La Blanca hydrothermal intrusive breccia pipes share similar characteristics with some Cu-Mo-mineralized porphyry systems, particularly El Teniente (some 120 km to the north).

"The results of the preliminary sampling at La Blanca confirm the potential of the La Blanca zone and our confidence in the project," commented Meryllion's CEO Terry Krepiakevich. "Moreover, these results add to our database which will assist our exploration team with developing drill targets from the integrated interpretation of the multi-layered database that Meryllion is in the process of developing."

Meryllion's program at Cerro Amarillo for the 2013/2014 field season comprises detailed geological mapping and grab sampling, focused geochemical surveying over specific prospect areas, and geophysical surveying together with property-wide prospecting. The exploration program is being supervised by Willem Fuchter, PhD PGeo, CEO of Meryllion's subsidiary in Argentina. Dr Fuchter is a Member of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario ("APGO"), and is a qualified person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. He has approved the technical data disclosed in this news release.
