GREAT CENTRAL ANNOUNCES BEST RESULTS TO DATE AT BRONZEWING; DISCOVERY OF NEW GOLD ZONE AT JUNDEE

 MELBOURNE, Australia, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Central Mines (NASDAQ: GTCMY) recent results at Bronzewings Central Zone produced the best results to date of 259 feet at 1.09 ounces per ton (oz/t) gold from a depth of 846 feet in the Central Zone. This is 2-1/2 to 3 times better grade than the best results to date in Bronzewing which was 0.39 oz/t.
 This remarkable hole also intersected 26 feet at 2.59 oz/t at a shallower depth of 315 feet. The above spectacular intersection appears to outline a substantial high grade block of gold mineralization when considered in conjunction with the 551 feet at 0.39 oz/t and 312 feet at 0.31 oz/t which have been previously announced. Follow-up drilling is to start shortly.
 The company also announced new results in the Discovery Zone. High grade gold has been discovered at shallow depths in the oxide zone, including 69 feet at 0.27 oz/t at 295 feet and 85 feet at 0.16 oz/t at 253 feet.
 Discovery of New Gold Zone at Jundee
 The company has also received very encouraging results at Jundee, approximately 120 kilometers north of Bronzewing with an intersection of 92 feet at 0.12 oz/t from a depth of 52 feet. The best results to date was 171 feet at 0.42 oz/t from a depth of 66 feet. Further drilling is in progress to test gold mineralization intersected over a north strike of 1,970 feet. Drilling is also in progress at other target areas with more than 0.03 oz/t in surface rock samples and a further area where gold nuggets have been found at Jundee.
 Bronzewing together with exploration results at Bates Range, Jundee, and Mt. Joel suggests that the Yandal Belt, in which the company holds extensive land interests, is highly prospective for the discovery of a world-class deposit by the company. Development of the Bronzewing project is planned for the December 1993 quarter with gold production scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 1994.
