Laurion Reveals New Exposure on River Zone Trend

Grab Assays 3.02% Cu and 33.2 g/t Ag; 1.42% Cu and 10.8 g/t Ag; and 2.11% Cu and 27.9 g/t Ag

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: LME) and (OTCQX: LMEFF) ("Laurion" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the results of grab assays from a new exposure on the River Zone, of its 100%-owned Sturgeon River Property. The River Zone is located on the most northerly trend of the three known trends hosting massive to semi-massive sulphides identified within the 3 km long by 1 km wide corridor.

The River Zone is a distinctive sheared and mineralized volcanic stratigraphy which is reflected by the course of the Sturgeon (Namewamikan) River which bisects the Laurion Sturgeon River Property. The River shear zone was reported to produce a strong VLF-EM conductor in historical exploration reports. In the late 1950's, copper bearing mineralization was first noted during a period of low water levels along the southern shoreline of the Namewamikan River.  Drilling in the 1990's reported intersections of lenses of chalcopyrite and sphalerite tested in five drill holes which were drilled on the north side of the River. Reported drilling had intersected values ranging for 0.45% to 8.89% Cu over widths ranging from 0.305 m to 3.66 m.

Exceptionally dry weather through late summer and early fall of 2012 allowed prospecting of bedrock exposed by the low water level in the Namewamikan River. This confirmed the mineralized zone which was exposed over approximately 30 m of strike and with a width of 4 m. The zone strikes approximately 020⁰ and continues into the River to the northeast and into overburden on the river bank to the southwest. Cursory prospecting along the north bank led to the discovery of further copper mineralization in limited bedrock exposure approximately 100 m northeast of the sampled occurrence. This trend direction was previously intersected by a drill hole 300 m to the southwest (88-22) with an intersection of 10.37 m grading 1.22% Cu, 13.6 g/t Ag and 0.20 g/t Au on strike with the bedrock exposure.

A total of six grab samples were taken. Results of the Grab Samples are as follows:

Sample # Au
Ag g/t Cu
1384313 94 33.2 3.02 0.43
1384314 nil 1.0 0.04 0.11
1384315 37 7.2 0.59 0.07
1384316 238 10.8 1.42 0.03
1384317 62 11.0 0.91 0.03
1384318 256 27.9 2.11 0.36

Additional prospecting and mapping was carried out in early November on a second copper showing designated the Azurite showing. The Azurite showing appears to be along the strike of the Tehya trend which has been drilled by five holes within an 800 m strike length. This consists of a silicified breccia zone in an intermediate volcanic with abundant visible chalcopyrite and copper oxides within narrow veins and fractures. It is postulated that this may be a feeder zone to more extensive VMS ("Volcanic Massive Sulphide") mineralization that has been previously reported on the property. While mapping this showing, a further zone of zinc and copper VMS style mineralization was discovered approximately 20 m north of the Azurite showing.

Two grab samples were taken of the exposure and resulted in the following assays:

Sample # Au
Ag g/t Cu
1384287 186 12.4 0.13 13.90
1384288 959 67.7 1.29 4.80

The above two samples occur on the Tehya trend approximately 300 m northeast of a Laurion drill hole, LME11-017 which intersected 4.20 m grading 0.14 g/t Au, 12.83 g/t Ag, 0.14% Cu and 3.79% Zn. Drill hole LME11-017 is the most northeasterly drill hole on this trend, and this showing may extend that zone a further 300 m along strike.

All sampling from the 2012 prospecting 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.
