3.1 km Long First Priority Target to Be Tested at Nicholas-Denys Puma's Silver Project, New Brunswick

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 19, 2011) - Puma Exploration (TSX VENTURE:PUM) is pleased to announce the launch of its summer exploration program at Nicholas-Denys Silver Project, New Brunswick. The first priority target to be tested is a coincident geophysical (InfiniTEM and IP) and geochemical Ag-Pb-Zn soil anomaly over a strike length of 3.1 km. This target corresponds to the western extension of the very high grade silver Haché and Shaft lenses explored and defined by Puma's work.

The other high priority targets include a total of twelve geophysical anomalies that were identified from the InfiniTEM® 2010 ground survey (EM-01 to EM-12) and covered 3.5 km of favourable structural features from the Shaft to Henry lenses. Most of these geophysical anomalies are associated with surface soil geochemical Ag-Pb-Zn anomalies. The most important silver soil anomaly covers an area of about 300 meters by 1,000 meters in the Henry area. All these surface targets will be prospected, trenched, and then the best mineralization discoveries will be drilled to verify the extent of the mineralization at depth.

"We are very pleased to launch our summer program at Nicholas-Denys. The first priority targets correspond to surface geophysical and geochemical anomalies that could be verified by a trenching and stripping program. This program will allow Puma to confirm the efficiency of our silver discovery model defined at the Haché and Shaft lenses and show the real potential of the entire land package at Nicholas-Denys." Notes Marcel Robillard, President of Puma Exploration.

The InfiniTEM® 2010 ground survey, added with the compilation of previous works, has also confirmed the presence of two additional structures parallel to the Rocky-Brook-Millstream Fault that will be explored in the current program. The Rocky-Brook-Millstream Fault is the primary control for the mineralization found in the Haché, Shaft, Henry, PineTree, and Great Northern lenses. All three structures together host 16 promising silver deposits and showings over a strike length of 10 kilometers, which will be examined in greater detail. The location and the best silver results from these deposits and showings are showed on the web site at www.explorationpuma.com.
