Benoit Gascon, president and CEO of Mason, commented:

We are very encouraged with the results from the North-East extension. This exploration target is located at the edge of the defined mineral resource, and adjacent to the pit design from the preliminary economic assessment we completed in April 2013. These results confirm mineralization near surface with excellent widths and mineral continuity beyond the current mineral resource boundary.
