Laurion Continues to Intersect Multiple Zones of Gold, Silver, Zinc and Copper on the A Zone of the Loki Trend, Ishkoday Property

Posted: Updated:

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2014 / Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: LME; OTCQX: LMEFF) (“Laurion“) is pleased to announce the drill results of LBX14-06 and LBX14-017, the second two diamond drill holes completed in January 2014, on its Ishkoday Property located northeast of Beardmore, Ontario.

A total of 533m of diamond drilling has been completed to date. Two of the diamond drill holes (See press release, February 27, 2014), followed up on the high grade channel and grab samples on the Loki Trend which intersected 27.8g/t Au, 13.1g/t Ag and 1.21% Zn and 0.16% Cu over 1.80m in diamond drill hole LME14-031, and 0.56g/t Au, 3.11g/t Ag, 0.09% Cu and 3.17% Zn over 4.37m and 0.32g/t Au, 3.94 g/t Ag, 0.10% Cu and 1.76% Zn over 4.20m in diamond drill hole LME14-030

The remaining two diamond drill holes LBX14-016 and LBX14-017 were collared to intersect geology associated with the Loki/“A”-Zone mineralization reported in the Laurion 2012 drill program. In the October 18, 2012 press release, the Corporation reported an intercept of 3.31 g/t Au, 18.1 g/t Ag, 0.09% Cu and 3.72% Zn over 12.84m, including 5.25 g/t Au, 40.1 g/t Ag, 0.29% Cu, 8.38% Zn and 1.24% Pb over 4.04m in diamond drill hole LBX12-010. Drill hole LBX12-010 targeted the “A”-Zone, passing through 5 high grade mineralized horizons within a lower grade mineralized halo measuring 113m in width.

Assay results from LBX14-016 and LBX14-017 are as follows:

Cross sections of diamond drill holes LME14-030 and LME14-031 and LBX14-016 and LBX14-017 can be viewed at http://www.laurion.ca/s/ishkoday.asp?ReportID=552927

The true thicknesses of the mineralized zones are currently unknown, but based on core angles observed in core they may range from 50-90%. Laurion is currently interpreting the results from the drill program with construction of cross-sections and modelling of mineralized horizons. This will provide better control on zone orientation to be reported later.

All sampling from this diamond drill program was delivered by GeoVector Management Inc. personnel to the Activation Laboratories (“Actlabs”) facility in Thunder Bay and/or Geraldton. Actlabs is an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited analytical laboratory. Analysis for gold was by fire assay with AA finish, followed by fire assay with gravimetric finish for samples over 3.0 g/t Au. Samples were also treated with a multi-acid ICP process, and base metal values over detection limit were treated to ore grade base metal assays. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored at the laboratory by the analysis of reagent blanks, reference material and replicate samples. Quality control is further assured by the use of international and in-house standards. GeoVector also routinely inserted blanks and certified standards into the sample stream in order to independently assess analytical accuracy. All certified standard assays were within acceptable limits.

The technical information contained in this news release has been verified by Allan Armitage, Ph. D., P.Geol., consulting geologist with GeoVector Management Inc.
