Brionor Resources Inc.: Drill Program Initiated on Pitt Gold

ST-BRUNO, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2010) - Brionor Resources Inc. ("BRIONOR" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BNR) is pleased to announce that it has initiated a 3,000 meter drill program on the 100% owned Pitt Gold property, located in the Duparquet Township along the Porcupine-Destor Break (PDB), some 35 km north of Rouyn-Noranda, in the Abitibi region of Quebec.

The Duparquet exploration camp is going to see significant exploration activity during 2010. Beyond the Brionor exploration program as further defined below, Osisko Mining Corporation will invest more than $15 million in exploration in the immediate region as evidenced by Osisko and Clifton Star Resources in a press release (dated Dec.11, 2009) announcing the signature of their Joint Venture Agreement.

The Pitt Gold Property is located some 7 km to the east of the Osisko-Clifton Star J/V. Since 2005, 46 drill holes have been completed on the property (28,205 m). Pitt Gold straddles the very prospective PDB over an east-west distance of 2 km. Several east-west striking, south dipping gold bearing structures have been discovered in the eastern portion of the property over a strike length of approximately 500 m (the remainder of the break being still very much under explored).

The gold minralization at Pitt Gold consists of zones of silicification-albitisation-pyritization and quartz stockworks within a Quartz-Feldspar Porphyry (QFP) intrusion and the surrounding intermediate volcanics. The mineralization is found immediately adjacent and to the north of the PDB. The following table gives a chronological list of some of the more significant intersections returned to date from prior drilling on the property;

P-58 9.82 g/t Au over 3.97 m
P-35 10.42 g/t Au over 2.44 m
DQ95-32 19.91 g/t Au over 6.25 m
DQ95-03 35.71 g/t Au over 2.52 m
DQ95-37 13.02 g/t Au over 2.52 m
PG2006-01 82.94 g/t Au over 4.58 m
PG2005-09 36.25 g/t Au over 4.60 m
PG2007-07 35.18 g/t Au over 5.00 m
PG2008-08 11.52 g/t Au over 5.00 m
PG2008-09 9.13 g/t Au over 11.00 m
PG2008-15 12.15 g/t Au over 6.50 m

Of note, the interval obtained in PG2008-15 (12.15 g/t Au over 6.5 m, cut at approximately 250 metres from surface) is entirely open towards surface.

The company has mobilized a drill rig to complete a 3,000 metre drill program; the priority of this program is to test the up dip potential of known gold bearing structures. Additional drilling might be undertaken to commence testing targets associated with the PDB break along the central and western portions of the property which have only been summarily and superficially tested historically. 

The 2010 drilling program is being carried out under the supervision of Mr. Pierre O'Dowd, geologist and Qualified Person as per National Instrument 43-101.

Brionor is a junior mining exploration company with a portfolio of exploration projects including the 100% owned Pitt Gold Project in Quebec.
