ABOUT RADISSON MINING RESOURCES:
Radisson is a Quebec-based mineral exploration company. Radisson's
main asset, the O'Brien/Kewagama project is located on the Cadillac
Break, 5 km west of the Lapa gold mine and approximately 4 km
southeast of the LaRonde mine, both owned by Agnico-Eagle.
The project hosts the O'Brien Mine, which is considered the highest
grade gold producer of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt (production of
1,302,000 tons at 0.448 oz/t from 1932 to 1955).
The Company's exploration work on the project has confirmed the
presence of 218,540 ounces of gold (indicated resource) (based on an
indicated resource of 270,000 tons at an uncut grade of 0.56 oz/ton
and an inferred resource of 182,000 tons at an uncut grade of 0.37
ounces) as defined in the Scott Wilson RPA NI 43-101 report of May
2007. These resources, all outlined above the 650-metre level, are
located about 800 metres east of the old O'Brien mine workings, and
represent a new discovery of high grade mineralization of the same
type mined and produced at the O'Brien gold mine. These resources are
in a gold zone referred to as Zone 36.
In 2011 and 2012, the Company carried out two diamond drilling
programs, resulting in new discoveries in the largely unexplored
eastern portion of the project (Kewagama) and further definition of
the eastern extension of Zone 36 mineralisation.
A drilling program is under way (November 27, 2012 press release).
Results will be reported when available.
