VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2012) - Premium Exploration Inc. (News - Market indicators)(OTCQX:PMMEF) ("Premium" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the 8,000 metre infill and definition drill program has commenced at the Friday Zone along the Idaho Gold Project, a 30 km long gold district in Idaho. Drilling is designed to increase and expand the Friday-Petsite constrained resource.

The objective of the infill program is to define one homogenous deposit along the 1.7 km mineralized footprint by achieving the following objectives:

  • Define additional ounces within the 1 km pit-constrained resource, targeting areas with insufficient drill density, while simultaneously connecting the North and Main zones into one deposit.
  • Increase overall resources by expanding the pit constrained resource zone from 1.0 km to 1.7 km of strike length, targeting the successful 2011 step-out drilling along the additional 0.7 km strike to the south.

Approximately 150 meters have been drilled by one reverse circulation rig. A total of up to 25 drill holes are planned, ranging in depth from 100m to 350m.

The current resource begins at surface, is comprised of 629,000 oz Au Indicated (21.5 Mt @ 0.91 g/t Au at 0.4 g/t cut-off) and 146,000 oz Au Inferred (5.9 Mt @ 0.77 g/t Au at 0.4 g/t cut-off), and remains open along strike to the north, south and at depth.

About Premium Exploration Inc.

Premium is focused on the exploration and development of its district-sized Orogrande Shear Zone "OSZ" to fulfill its vision of developing a new mining district in North America. The OSZ is a 30 km-plus regionally-significant trending structure that correlates with multiple known zones of mineralization and has structural control to its gold mineralization, characteristics similar to many large gold belts, such as the Carlin Trend of Nevada. Development is ongoing at the bulk-tonnage Friday-Petsite deposit, the most advanced of several known mineralized zones located along the OSZ and represents 4% of the OSZ under Premium's control.
