La Ronge Gold Corp.: Diamond Drilling Program to Commence At Preview
SW Deposit, Saskatchewan 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- La Ronge
La Ronge Gold Corp is pleased to announce that a diamond drilling
program will be commencing shortly at the Preview SW deposit located
in north-central Saskatchewan. The company is planning a 7,000 meters
(m) drilling campaign on its La Ronge gold projects in Saskatchewan
in 2013. The objectives of the drilling campaigns are to increase the
recently announced gold resources at the Preview SW deposit, and
evaluating other prospects.  
As reported in a News Release dated December 3, 2012, the Preview SW
deposit hosts mineral resources as summarized in the table below
using the base case estimate at a gold cut-off grade (COG) of 0.5
grams/tonne gold (g/t Au):

INFERRED                             0.5   3,714,600        2.09     257,300

The technical report summarizing this resource estimation has been
submitted to SEDAR. One of the report's specific recommendations is
to "Carry out additional in-fill and definition drilling to define
the extent of the Preview SW mineralized zones. There is presently a
lack of shallow drill holes near the north and south limits of the
resource model." The Preview SW deposit is clearly open at depth and
in both directions along strike. 
Rasool Mohammad the company's President and CEO comments "The
potential to add more gold ounces to our existing gold resources is
significantly high. The geological and structural setting, the
geophysical signature
 and the presence of gold mineralization in
historical drill holes indicate the presence of a prospective
corridor with a potential strike length of over 5,000 meters." 
The Preview SW deposit was discovered by SMDC, the predecessor
company of Cameco Corp, in the late 1980's. Structurally controlled
mesothermal lode gold is hosted in silicified zones spatially related
to quartz veins in a sheared dioritic-gabbroic intrusion and is
associated with sulphides. The zone of sheared diorite-gabbro sills
extends for 5200 m in a northeast-southwest direction across the
property and reaches approximately 200 m in width, and a number of
zones of gold mineralization including the Preview SW deposit are
hosted in this setting. Several sub-parallel northeast-trending shear
zones, totalling 150 m in width, make up the Preview SW deposit, and
these zones contain swarms of narrow quartz veins that bifurcate and
merge. The en echelon 1 to 10 m-wide shear structures are persistent
at depth and often merge in that direction too. The results of
Cameco's and the most recent drilling indicate that gold
mineralization is open in both directions along strike and down dip.
The Company's recent drilling also indicates that high grade gold
mineralization is also locally present in felsic volcanic rocks that
surround the diorite intrusion. 
The initial resource estimate was conducted by GeoSim Services Inc.
Ronald G. Simpson, P. Geo. of GeoSim, is the Qualified Person as
defined under National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the resource
estimates. Gordon Davidson, P. Geol., VP Exploration for La Ronge
Gold is a "qualified person" for the purposes of National Instrument

down from The Board of Directors in order to pursue personal
interests. The Board wishes to thank Gary for his contributions to
the Company, and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
