VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2011) - TNR Gold Corp. ("TNR" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TNR) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 100% ownership interest in the Seabrook Rare Earth Element Carbonatite Complex in northern Ontario (the "Property") through a combination of staking and option.

Key Highlights:

  • 100% ownership and coverage of the Seabrook Carbonatite Complex;
  • Significant REE potential indicated from previous operators' limited exploration;
  • 4 grab samples grading 0.6, 1.5, 4.7 and 10.3% Nb2O5; and
  • One sample grading 0.47% Ce2O5 and 0.22% La2O3 where only the Ce and La were analyzed for.

"The Seabrook Carbonatite Complex represents a significant addition to TNR's Rare Earth Elements property portfolio that also includes the Big Beaver House Carbonatite; one of the largest carbonatites in Ontario," states Gary Schellenberg, CEO – TNR Gold Corp. "TNR's inclusion of two highly prospective and under-explored REE properties represent excellent exploration targets for REEs and is a prime example of the opportunities that the Company continues to source out, identify and acquire." 

The Seabrook Property consists of three claims covering 32 Units and totaling 512 hectares. Two of the claims totaling 23 Units were acquired through staking by the Company and the remaining one claim consisting of 9 units is under option to the Company, contingent on Exchange approval. The Company can acquire a 100% interest in the optioned claim by issuing an aggregate $111,000 cash payment, 450,000 shares and accumulating $750,000 in exploration expenditures over a three year period to the claim owners (the "Optionor"). In addition, TNR agrees to pay to the Optionor a net smelter returns royalty (the "Royalty") of 2.0% of which TNR shall have the right to purchase up to 75% of the Royalty (being 1.5%) at any time prior to the commencement of commercial production upon the payment of $500,000 per each 25% of the Royalty (being each 0.5%).

Seabrook Carbonatite

The Seabrook Carbonatite Complex is one of the southernmost Carbonatite complexes in Ontario located 100 kilometres NE of Sault Ste. Marie and 10 kilometres west of highway 129 along a provincial Forest Access Road. The Seabrook Project is accessible year round with a powerline transecting the property and the Aubrey Falls Dam and Generating Station situated within 12 kilometres.

The Seabrook Carbonatite is approximately 1.5 x 2.5 kilometres in area and elongated along a north-south trend forming a tadpole shaped complex consisting of Sovite and Silicocarbonatite in the bulbous northern portion and Ijolite in the tail to the south. The entire complex is enveloped by a well developed aureole of Fenitized granitic rocks.

The limited past exploration on the Seabrook Carbonatite has indicated significant REE potential. In 1955, W. Bussineau reported 4 grab samples* grading 0.6, 1.5, 4.7 and 10.3% Nb2O5. In 1971, Canpac Minerals Ltd. and Gunnex Ltd. reported grab samples grading up to 0.90% Nb and outlined 3 areas of high Nb values which were never followed up by drilling. In 1977, P.C. Thurston et al. as part of a geological survey of the Chapleau area for the Ontario Division of Mines returned a sample of Sovite grading 0.47% Ce2O5 and 0.22% La2O3 where only the two REE elements (Ce + La) were analyzed.

Big Beaver House Carbonatite

TNR Gold Corp. acquired by staking the Big Beaver House REE property, one of the largest carbonatite complexes in Ontario at 5 by 5 kms in scale. The property consists of eleven claims totaling 2,688 hectares and is located 40 kms northeast of Golcorp.'s Musselwhite gold mine.

The project has experienced minor historic exploration due to the almost complete absence of outcrops however the limited drilling that did occur indicated significant REE potential when the Ontario Geological Survey analyzed the historic drill core and reported Nd+La+Ce grades up to 3,200 ppm.

* Grab samples are by definition selective and are unlikely to represent average grades on the property.

The Company is currently planning and coordinating the 2011 exploration programs on their REE properties and will provide more details near the commencement of field operations.

John Harrop, P.Geo, is the company's qualified person on the project as required under NI 43-101 and has reviewed the technical information contained in this press release. To view additional details on the Seabrook and Big Beaver House Carbonatite Complexes, please visit our website (www.tnrgoldcorp.com) and select the project presentations.
