VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2012) - Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (News - Market indicators) ("Fancamp" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from the fifth set of Iron assay results from the completed summer-fall NQ Diamond drilling program at the Company's wholly owned Lac Lamêlée South Iron Project (the "Project"), located 100 km southwest of Fermont (Quebec) in the heart of the Fermont-Wabush-Labrador City Iron Camp. Drilling during this campaign totaled 12,606.6 meters in 38 drill holes (refer to the appended Diamond drill holes location map). To date, some 57 holes were drilled on the Project totaling 18,220 meters.

Iron assay results are now completed for all 38 drill holes (LS-12-01 to 38). Assay results for drill holes LS-12-01 to 29 were issued in Company news releases dated October 22, November 6, November 13 and November 20, 2012. The best assay intervals for drill holes LS-12-30 to 38 are summarized below*. Quality Assurance and Quality Control protocols are also appended.

* Notes:
- The selected composite assay results are not necessarily representative of the average grades or thicknesses of the mineralized zones or potential resource.
- Intervals are down-hole lengths and not necessarily true widths of the mineralized zones.
- Grades are calculated from Fe(T)% sample assays completed by the ALS Laboratory Group with the Fe2O3% grade = Fe(T)% x 1.4297.
- Certain iron formation lithologies contain variable amounts of Iron in silicates which may reduce the recoverable Iron grade.

The drill programs of 2011 and 2012 were designed to fully test the iron mineralization to vertical depths of 350 meters. Two drill holes (LS-12-27 and LS-12-29) were drilled to vertical depths of 600 meters to 650 meters and intersected equally as rich iron formations as have been tested throughout the drilling campaign. Fancamp is currently constructing the 3-D model of the iron mineralization. PJL Géo-Conseil of Ste-Thérèse (Quebec) has been hired as the independent contractor for the upcoming mineral resources estimates and accompanying National Instrument 43-101 technical report slated for completion early in 2013.

This news release was reviewed and approved by Mr. Mike Flanagan, M.Sc.A., P. Geo., the Lac Lamêlée South Iron Project Manager, a Qualified Person under NI 43-101 standards.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control Protocols

Drill core boxes arrive at the Fancamp core logging facility on the Lac Lamêlée South Iron Project. Boxes are opened and depth tags are verified for errors. Each box is labeled with embossed aluminum tape stapled to box end. Numbers indicated hole and box numbers as well as "from" and "to" footages. Sampling is continuous through mineralized intervals and intermittent in other lithologies. Within mineralized intervals, samples taken are 2 metres in length of half-sawed core, or up to lithological or structural boundaries. One standard per hole is included within the sampling of mineralized zones up to 250 metres of hole length.

Holes deeper than 250 metres contain a second standard. There is one blank sample and one duplicated sample per 80 metres of core. Some 26 samples of varying lithologies have been quartered and sent to the principal laboratory and a second laboratory. Approximately 50 Davis Tube and density test have been conducted on a range of important lithologies. One-half of the sample is returned to the core box with the sample tag number stapled at the down-hole end of the sample interval. The other half is packaged in a plastic bag accompanied by its stapled sample tag number. The sample number is also written with felt pen on the bag.

Core logging is conducted using GeoticLog and Geotic Graph software. Data is transcribed for GEMCOM software. Geology is described using 13 lithological units and several sub-lithologies. Other parameters described in the logs include structure, magnetic susceptibility, rock quality data and mineralization. Rock quality data is described at varying intervals according to their common fracture characteristics, recovered lengths, RQD length (total lengths of sections over 10 centimetres) and number of fractures over the interval. Recovery and RQD percentages are calculated. Mineralization is described as a visual percentage of magnetite and/or hematite and a ratio of magnetite to hematite is generally estimated.

Sample bags are secured with staples and/or cable ties. Sample batches are tabulated for shipping control. Sample requisitions are included in the first bag of each batch. Samples are placed in large rice bags for shipping, all secured with a cable tie. Batches are separated into two groups corresponding to the two drills working on the project. Samples are transported from camp to a shipping depot in Wabush (Newfoundland and Labrador). Batches are placed on pallets and wrapped in plastic to secure the bundles. Samples are shipped by commercial transport to the ALS Laboratory Group facilities in Val-d'Or (Quebec). Shipping waybills are kept for tracking shipments as required.

Core samples received at the laboratory are sorted and verified against the original list to ensure that all samples have been received to check for discrepancies. The samples were entered into the laboratory information management system. The sorted samples are dried in the original sample bags to ensure that any damp fines did not remain upon transfer to drying containers. Once dry the samples were crushed 70% to less than 2 millimetres (Tyler 9 mesh, US Std #10 screen). Each sample was then riffle split and an aliquot up to 250 grams was pulverized to better than 85% to less than 75 µm (Tyler 200 mesh, US Std #200 screen). Quality control testing was conducted on random samples at both crushing and pulverizing stages to verify efficiency. Samples were then analyzed using the fusion XRF whole rock package which provide the analysis of Al2O3, CaO, Cr2O3, Fe(T), K2O, MgO, SiO2, TiO2, and single temperature Loss On Ignition, as well as As, Ba, Cl, Co, Cu, Mn, Ni, P, Pb, S, Sn, Sr, V, Zn, and Zr. Each batch was accompanied by QAQC measures provided by the laboratory as well as those conducted during the sampling. These included the analysis of blanks, duplicates and certified standard reference materials. All QAQC standards are control charted to ensure that the data passes quality control prior to final release.

Upon completion of analysis and verification by the laboratory chemist, results were entered into the information management system and approved. Reports are then generated and a final quality control check is done by an independent person. This person also did the final certification of the data. Data was then transferred to Fancamp.
