VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2009) - ABITIBI MINING CORP. (TSX VENTURE:ABB) (the "Company") is pleased to announce, subject to regulatory approval, the acquisition of a 100% interest in an extension to the Armstrong Lake property.

"With the expansion of the Armstrong Lake gold property, the Company is able to move forward with its gold exploration plans. The Armstrong Lake project is along the same fault zone that intersects Amador Gold Corp.'s Horwood project, which recently announced the discovery of numerous high-grade gold zones on surface, a number of which are currently being drilled," comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "The fault zone, known as the Hardiman Bay Fault, is a splay off the Destor Porcupine Fault Zone which is believed to be a major controlling factor of gold mineralization within the Timmins camp."
