Pretium Resources Valley of Kings exploration program underway Pretium Resources announced the initial results from surface drilling in the Valley of the Kings and provide updates for the Brucejack Project. A surface drilling program comprising three deep geological holes collared near the Brucejack camp and drilled to the south is now underway to test gold mineralization at depth in the Valley of the Kings. The results from hole SU-627 confirm that the gold mineralization extends below the block model for the December 2013 Valley of the Kings Mineral Resource estimate, and demonstrate the significant untested exploration potential at the Valley of the Kings. The high-grade gold intersections encountered between 500 meters and 600 meters down hole in SU-627 are interpreted to be the down dip extension of the northern part of the Valley of the Kings. The mineralization encountered at depth from 900 meters to 1,121 meters down hole is over 500 meters below the deepest intersections used in the December 2013 Valley of the Kings Mineral Resource estimate. Drilling in hole SU-628 has been completed, and drilling in hole SU-629 has just begun.
