Satori Seeks to Recover Gold from Tailings; and 79.9 Ounces of Gold Recovered from Mill Clean-Up Activities08:27 EDT Tuesday, March 13, 2012TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 13, 2012) -THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATESSatori Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BUD) ("Satori" or the "Company") announces that an independent report of preliminary results from a sampling program undertaken at the Tartan Lake Gold Mine tailings pond is expected shortly. The report will be instrumental in determining the next phase to confirm the total inferred volume and grade of tailings, most of which is believed to be above the waterline. Additionally, an initial 79.9 ounces of gold and 4.61 ounces of silver have been recovered from 2.46 tons of material collected from inside the Tartan Lake mill as part of an ongoing project clean-up program. "Satori is in the process of assembling a team of technical experts for the purpose of re-processing ore in the tailings this year at the Tartan Lake Gold Mine, Flin Flon, Manitoba" comments Jennifer Boyle, President and Chief Executive Officer. "One member of the historic team advised that during the original commissioning of the mine (1986), while adjustments to crushing, milling, and metallurgical recovery were being made, it is believed that much of the initial output of ore from underground went straight to the tailings. Satori is therefore assessing whether potential revenue can be generated from gold sales from the re-processing of the tailings, sufficient enough to off-set full or partial costs of re-commissioning the mine".The Tartan Lake Gold Mine Project's independent NI 43-101 resource estimate (completed by MineTech International Ltd. and released in November 8, 2010 and amended on January 18, 2012) resulted in an indicated mineral resource of 1,000,000 tonnes at 4.0g/t Au (130,000 ounces) and an additional inferred mineral resource of 1,900,000 tonnes at 3.9g/t Au (240,000 ounces).
