FSC / Press Release 
Diamond Drill Program Commences on the PAK Rare Metals Project in Ontario 
Sudbury, Ontario CANADA, March 01, 2013 /FSC/ - Houston Lake Mining Inc. (TSX.V:
HLM) is a mining exploration company which is actively exploring for the rare
metals lithium, cesium, tantalum, and rubidium by currently focusing on its 100%
owned and optioned PAK Rare Metals Project in northwestern Ontario, Canada.  HLM
is pleased to announce the commencement of diamond drilling on the PAK Rare
Metals Project, located near Red Lake, Ontario. This initial phase I of diamond
drilling is follow-up to the 2012 PAK exploration program which included surface
channel samples of the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite (see news releases dated January
10th and 29th, 2013). The drill program will focus on drill targets derived from
the high grade mineralization encountered in various zones at surface. 
The current drill program consists of 1,000 m in six holes. The objectives of
the program are (1) to determine the orientation, thickness and zonation of the
Pakeagama Lake pegmatite, and (2) to refine the mineralogical characterization
of these zones by better establishing their lithium, tantalum, cesium and
rubidium potential. The drilling will be completed before the end of this winter
and results will be reported as they are received and interpreted. 
About the PAK Rare Metals Project 
The Pakeagama Lake pegmatite currently has a strike length of over 200m with a
width up to 150m at surface with mineralization that is open in all directions.
In September 2012, Peter J. Vanstone, P.Geo. the qualified person for the
project, conducted a 91 sample channel sampling program on the exposed Pakeagama
Lake pegmatite in order to confirm historical results and to add additional
channel samples while further sampling by distinct geologic zones. The results
of the program have so far identified high grade lithium up to 4.74% Li2O over
15 meters in three distinct pegmatite zones, and high grade tantalum up to
192ppm Ta2O5  over 14 meters in one of these zones.
