SUDBURY, Ontario -- April 30, 2013

Houston Lake Mining Inc. (TSX.V: HLM), is a mining exploration company that is
specialized in rare metals and actively exploring for lithium, tantalum,
cesium, and rubidium by focusing on its high grade, 100% owned and optioned
PAK Rare Metals Project in northwestern Ontario, Canada. HLM is pleased to
announce the recent staking of prospective and adjacent grounds which
substantially increases the Company’s controlled land position and size of the
PAK Rare Metals Project to 2,816 hectares (6,958 acres).

“The Phase I diamond drill program which commenced in March, coupled with the
recently increased property size confirms HLM’s commitment to the strong
market interest in strategic metals through our investment in a leading
exploration target in the high-grade, multi-element Pakeagama Lake pegmatite
on the PAK Rare Metals Project.”, said Trevor R. Walker, President of HLM.

About the PAK Rare Metals Project
The Pakeagama Lake pegmatite has an exposed strike length of approximately
200m with a width up to 150m at surface with mineralization that is open along
strike, and at depth. In September 2012, HLM conducted a 91 sample channel
sampling program on the exposed pegmatite by targeting distinct geologic
zones. The results of the program have identified high grade lithium,
tantalum, and rubidium with up to 4.74% Li[2]O over 15 meters in three
distinct pegmatite zones, 14 meters of 192ppm Ta[2]O[5] (including 270ppm over
6 meters) and 0.53% Rb[2]O in one of the zones. Within the next three to five
weeks, HLM will begin receiving assay results from the Phase I, 6-hole,
1,000-meter diamond drill program that commenced in March. The intention of
this first drill program is to determine the orientation and thickness of the
pegmatite, to better define the pegmatite zonation, and to refine the
mineralogical characterization of these zones by establishing their lithium,
tantalum, cesium and rubidium potential.
