Balmoral Resources Ltd. (BAR.V) today reported results from eight holes completed on the Company's Northshore Property in Ontario.

Hole WB-12-29 which returned two broad intercepts of anomalous gold mineralization including two new high-grade discoveries (9.15 g/t gold over 3.00 metres and 9.78 g/t gold over 5.00 metres), expanding the Afric Zone to the northeast into an area of limited historic drilling.

Hole WB-12-33 which returned an average grade of 1.37 g/t gold over 68.00 metres (including 12.16 g/t gold over 4.00 metres), representing one of the deepest intersections on the Property to date and indicating the Afric Zone remains open at depth.
