Serengeti Resources Inc (TSXV:SIR) is pleased to announce the results of a recently completed field program on its 100% owned RCN property, located in northwestern British Columbia. Rock sampling returned additional good-grade copper-gold mineralization from the property, plus a limited IP geophysical survey identified three open-ended chargeability anomalies and soil sampling suggests that a target of interest remains open and may extend beyond the area of current work. These encouraging results warrant additional work

Highlights from the rock sampling program are shown in Table 1. The first four samples are from an area of mineralized quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration first identified in 2013 and returned values grading up to 0.97% Cu and 4.13 g/t Au in separate grab samples. The fifth sample, a mineralized boulder grading 0.44% Cu, 2.69 g/t Au is located 250 meters upstream from this first mineralized area, and the final sample containing 0.41% Cu is from a boulder coincident with one of the areas of IP chargeability described below.

A limited IP geophysical survey was completed as a part of the current program. Three open-ended chargeability anomalies were identified, generally flanking aeromagnetic highs and two of them are located in generally lower resistivity areas so may represent formational anomalies rather than primary target areas. The principal copper-gold occurrence described above coincides with a moderately resistive and weakly chargeable zone. Interestingly, soil sampling conducted in 2014 located a copper anomaly which is open to the south on the property beyond the area of current work.

The results of the current relatively limited field program indicate that more work is warranted on the property up to and including future drill testing.
