Vancouver, BC — August 6, 2014 - Tintina Resources Inc. (“Tintina” or the “Company”) (TSX.V:”TAU”; OTCQX: “TINTF”) is pleased to announce that the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has granted Tintina permission to conduct aquifer pumping tests in three new wells recently drilled under existing exploration permits. Two 30-day pumping tests and one 24 hour test will collect groundwater data in the Johnny Lee Deposit area and provide additional baseline data on groundwater levels, rates of subsurface flow and hydraulic connectivity among shallow to deep aquifers. This information will be used to provide baseline water quality data required by the state for environmental permitting and ensure any future mine design will effectively evaluate water needs, and meet all requirements for water protection.
