Eastmain Resources Inc.: Honey Badger Drills Four Targets at Radisson Project

Eastmain Resources Inc.: Honey Badger Drills Four Targets at Radisson Project 
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/12/13 -- Eastmain Resources
Inc. (TSX:ER) announced that Honey Badger Exploration Inc. ("Honey
Badger") reported results from four drill holes, totaling 827 metres,
on Eastmain's Radisson Project, located within the James Bay Mining
District of Northern Quebec. The Radisson gold property lies within
an Archean-aged greenstone belt approximately 120 and 165 kilometres
north of the Eleonore (Roberto) and Clearwater (Eau Claire) gold
properties respectively. 
Highlights from initial drill-testing of prospective gold targets
include hole RA-13-03, which intersected a shear zone bounding a
sedimentary-dominated assemblage, and returned 3.71 g/t Au over 1.0
metre within a broader anomaly assaying 0.44 g/t Au over 17.56
metres. 
Drill hole RA-13-02 intersected 4.67 g/t Au and 9.8 g/t Ag (silver)
over 0.55 metre within a shear zone located at a volcanic/sedimentary
geological boundary. RA-13-01 tested the same shear zone,
intersecting 0.35 g/t Au over 1.0 metre. RA-13-04 tested a banded
iron formation target with no significant results.  
Honey Badger can earn 50% interest in the Radisson property by
completing $2.5 million in exploration expenditures, including 6,000
metres of drilling, over a three-year period. Honey Badger has also
issued approximately 5.4 million common shares and made cash payments
of $50,000 as part of its earn-in requirements to date in the
project. 
Honey Badger reports that all samples were shipped to ACTLABS in
Ancaster, ON for chemical analyses (Fire Assay Fusion and Total
Digestion - ICP). Core samples were cut in half lengthwise by diamond
core saw and one half was shipped to the lab. Certified reference
standards were inserted every 10 samples and blank samples, comprised
of sterile drill core, were placed randomly approximately every 10-20
samples. 
About Radisson 
Radisson covers over 25 kilometres of favorable precious
metal-bearing corridors hosting multiple gold occurrences in rocks
similar to those forming Goldcorp Inc.'s Roberto Deposit, slated for
production in late 2014, and Eastmain's high-grade Eau Claire Gold
Deposit, the region's second largest deposit.  
Radisson is a camp-scale property with promising and widespread gold,
copper and silver occurrences, located within an emerging gold
district with excellent infrastructure nearby (paved roads,
commercial airports and low cost hydro electric power). The project
is accessible via winter logging roads from the LG2 Hwy, a road
system connecting the towns of Matagami and Radisson (La Grande). 
About Eastmain Resources Inc. (TSX:ER)  
Eastmain is a Canadian gold exploration company with 100% interest in
the Eau Claire and Eastmain gold deposits. The Corporation has a
budget of $7.5 million in flow-through funds for exploration within
the James Bay region of Quebec for 2013.
