VANCOUVER, May 20, 2015 /CNW/ - Commerce Resources Corp. (TSXv: CCE, FSE: D7H) (the "Company" or "Commerce") is pleased to announce it has completed the first phase of its 2015 field program at its 100% owned Ashram Rare Earth Deposit located in northern Quebec. The 2015 winter/spring field program was composed of resource infill drilling, geotechnical drilling and downhole surveying, geomechanical sampling, as well as hydrogeological drill hole testing. A total of 31 drill holes were completed.

The primary goals of the program were to increase the resource confidence from the current inferred category to the measured and/or indicated categories with infill drilling, as well as complete geotechnical/geomechanical and hydrogeological studies required for the ongoing Pre-feasibility Study (PFS). All necessary work was completed as planned. 

The majority of the first phase of work focused on infill drilling over Centre Pond, along the eastern periphery of the deposit, as well as on the MHREO Zone (EC15-133 and 134).  A total of 31 drill holes totaling approximately 4,146 m (land: 15 holes for 1,988 m; pond: 16 holes for 2,157 m) were completed.

The drilling included both NQ (22 holes for 2,903 m) and HQ (9 holes for 1,243 m) drill core size, with holes ranging in depth from 7 m to 239 m. Table 1 below outlines the attributes of each drill hole as well as the holes purpose (i.e. resource, hydrogeological, geotechnical, and/or geomechanical).

A map showing the drill hole locations is available on the Company's website at http://www.commerceresources.com.

A total of 10 holes were completed with a focus along the eastern side of the near surface mineralization over Centre Pond, straddling the eastern contact of the deposit. These holes are NQ in diameter with depths ranging from 82 m to 223 m to coincide with end-of-hole depths targeted below the level of the deepest Whittle pit shell identified in the Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) (Effective date of July 5, 2012; revised January 7, 2015). Management notes that the PEA is preliminary in nature, in that it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA will be realized.

The first 12 drill holes have arrived at Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, ON and will be analyzed for rare earths by ICP-MS, as well as for fluorine by Fusion ISE. Results will be released as they are received.

The second phase of the 2015 field program is anticipated to being in late-June / early-July.
