Shamrock Intersects 15.1 Meters of 444 g/t Silver on the

Shamrock Intersects 15.1 Meters of 444 g/t Silver on the Fireweed
Project 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/12 -- Shamrock
Enterprises Inc. (CNSX:SRS) ("Shamrock" or the "Company") is pleased
to announce results from its recent 1500 meter, 11 diamond drill hole
program at the Fireweed Property located approximately 80 km north of
Smithers, B.C. in the Omineca Mining District. Seven drill holes have
intersected significant mineralization in a portion of the West Zone. 
Highlights of the drilling program include: 
15.6 meters of 374.7 g/t silver in drill hole FW 11-3 
15.1 meters of 444.4 g/t silver in drill hole FW 11-4 
15.3 meters of 374 g/t silver in drill hole FW 11-5 
20.3 meters of 202.8 g/t silver, 0.2 g/t gold, 1.7% lead and 3.6%
zinc in drill hole FW 11-6 
The 2011 drill program, completed in December 2011, consisted of
eleven NQ size diamond drill holes for a total of 1561.7 m. Two
sections trending NW-SE, fifty metres apart, were selected to test an
area indicated by historical drilling in 1988 and 1989, to contain
mineralization in the "West Zone". Several other mineral zones on the
Fireweed property await additional testing and evaluation. 
Previous drilling on the Fireweed Property by Shamrock confirmed the
presence of volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization in the west
zone "vent" area located approximately 100 meters east of the two
sections reported here. The previous drilling demonstrated anomalous
amounts of silver, lead and zinc extending up to 1000 meters east of
the current west zone target, as well as confirming and extending
known areas of volcanogenic massive sulphides to depth in the "vent"
area of the "West Zone". 
The area of 2011 drill program is between 45m and 130m west of the
western edge of the area drilled by the Company's 2010 drill program.
The 2011 drilling was designed to test the area of mineralization
indicated by historical drilling in 1988 and 1989 to contain
significant lead, zinc and silver mineralization. Only a few of the
old drill hole collars can now be positively identified, new drilling
of the area is required so as to begin a modern, regulatory compliant
resource calculation. 
The 2011 drilling was positioned so as to largely avoid duplication
of previous drill holes while maximizing structural and mineralogical
information from the area of previously indicated mineralization. A
plan depicting 2011 drill holes will be posted on the Company's
website at www.shamrockresources.com. 
The 2011 program is in accordance with objectives recommended after
the 2010 drill program. 
Few of the old drill collars from the 1988/89 drill program can be
identified positively, although sites can be generally located. The
lack of positive identification of old collar locations requires that
newer, NI43-101 compliant drilling be undertaken to: 


 
A.  Determine mineral intersection locations that can be used in any future
    economic or resource calculation. 
B.  Have uniform, modern, compliant testing and analytic procedures. 
C.  Enable positively identifiable collar locations.

 
All intersections reported are drilled intersections and are not true
widths.

Surface drilling was conducted by Blackhawk Drilling of Smithers,
B.C. and was supervised by the William A. Howell P.Geo., the
qualified person for the Company. All samples were prepared by Acme
Labs in Smithers and analyzed in the Acme facility in Vancouver,
B.C., which is a SO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation facility. Samples
were subjected to ACME Group 7TD analysis, where the split core is
crushed and split to 150 mesh, then a 1.00 gram sample is subjected
to a hot 4 acid digestion then analysed by ICP - ES. Au and Ag are
determined by group 603 fire assay from a 1 assay-tonne sample.

Technical content of this news release has been prepared and reviewed
by W.A. Howell P Geo, a qualified person for the purposes of NI
43-101. 
About Fireweed: The Fireweed Property is a polymetallic (Ag, Zn, Pb,
Cu, Au) discovery of massive sulphide and sulphide replacement type
mineralization. The region has seen active mineral exploration since
the turn of the century with numerous producers. Examples are the
Granisle Mine (10 km to the southeast), Bell Copper Mine (5 km to the
east) and the undeveloped Morrison Deposit (17 km to the northeast).
One of the most significant was the Equity Silver Mine at Goosly Lake
with very similar mineralization to Fireweed. Pursuant to a Letter of
Understanding with Pachamama Resources Ltd. dated February 17, 2010
the Company has an exclusive option to acquire an initial 50%
interest, with the right to earn up to a 70% interest in the Fireweed
Property. 
About Shamrock: Shamrock Enterprises Inc. is a Canadian-based junior
mining exploration company focused on the procurement, exploration
and development of silver and other precious metal properties in
North America. The Company's Shares are listed and posted for trading
on the Canadian National Stock Exchange ("CNSX") under the symbol
