Indochine Mining Limited (ASX:IDC) Consistent High Grades in Drilling Confirm Potential of Mt Kare Gold/Silver Project

Sydney, Australia, Nov 14, 2012 - (ABN Newswire) - Indochine Mining Limited (ASX:IDC.AX - News) today announced additional consistent high grade drill hole results from its Mt Kare gold/silver project in Papua New Guinea, with the best result being 42 m at 4.9 g/t gold, 62 g/t silver or 6g/t gold equivalent.

'These results reinforce the exciting potential of our Mt Kare project,' said Indochine's CEO Stephen Promnitz. 'They complement the consistent drill results released previously and confirm that high grade gold/silver mineralisation extends from the surface in the BZ zone.

'We are continuing to work on high grade zones of this type in order to increase the project's resource. We expect to encounter further high grade and 'bonanza' zones at Mt Kare, based on a recent review by a consultant with considerable experience at the adjacent world-class Porgera mine.'
