Exploration and drilling work at Farley Lake was completed in December 2012. An initial NI43-101 compliant resource estimate is expected in Q2 2013.Bruce Reid, President and CEO of Carlisle commented, "The final four holes from the 25 hole 2012 Farley Lake drill program, show that the deposit contains high-grade intersections at multiple depths all within 400 metres of surface. The 2012 drill program combined with our data analysis from historical information, shows that the Farley Lake Project has validity and boasts serious potential for the Lynn Lake Gold Camp."Hole*From (m)To (m)Drill Interval (m)**Au Grade g/tFL12-25626319.5213.12151.909.29345380356.83FL12-21202440.9122636101.02384241.08586131.96FL12-2310410844.9115315416.34154.91572.16.05FL12-24505661.156972.53.52.7175.5793.510.67100.5102.72.25.08104.9106.71.82.76115119.14.19.06194.51983.55.17*Drill Results highlighted and sub results use an arbitrary cut-off grading of 0.5 g/t Au** Orebody geometry has yet to be determined, but true width is estimated to be 80% of core lengthTo view Figure 1, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/cgj_mar27_figure01.pdfAbout Farley Lake Mine Project: The Farley Lake Mine Project ("Farley Lake") is located approximately 35 km east of the Town of Lynn Lake. The Farley Lake Mine was put into production as two small open pits in 1997-99. 1,707,000 tonnes were mined at a grade of 4.23 g/t recovering 213,124 oz gold. Historical recoveries were over 90%. Historically, the project has been extensively drilled with over 300 diamond drill core holes done primarily during the 1990s.As noted in Carlisle's news release dated March 19, 2013, Carlisle commenced a 25 hole drill program on the project in June 2012 which was completed in December 2012. This deposit differs from the Company's other deposits in the Lynn Lake Camp as it is hosted in a Pre-Cambrian sedimentary iron formation. The iron formation in the Farley Lake area is 6 km long by 600 m wide (Milligan, 1960) and is predominantly composed of an oxide facies iron formation that is intercalated with clastic sediments (Dahlstrom, 1949; Milligan, 1960).To view Figure 2, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/cgj_mar27_figure02.pdfAbout Carlisle: Carlisle Goldfields Limited is a Canadian‐based gold exploration and development company, focused on development of its mining leases and claims in the Lynn Lake Greenstone Belt of Northern Manitoba, covering approximately 20,000 hectares which include the former MacLellan Gold mine and two other former producing gold mines as well as numerous other historically identified Gold Zones all within close distance of the town of Lynn Lake.In March 2012 (see News Release dated March 13, 2012), Carlisle announced an updated Resource Estimate on its MacLellan Gold Project in Lynn Lake, Manitoba.
