Golden Valley Mines-Exploration Update on its James Bay Lowlands "Ring of Fire" Joint Venture

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 3, 2009) - White Pine Resources (TSX VENTURE:WPR) ("White Pine") (formerly WSR Resources), Noront Resources (TSX VENTURE:NOT) ("Noront") and Golden Valley Mines (TSX VENTURE:GZZ) ("Golden Valley") Joint Venture Project ("Bourdon Prospect") along the "Ring of Fire" in the James Bay Lowlands, is pleased to provide the following exploration update.

The following news release information has been prepared by joint venture partner and program operator White Pine. "The joint venture project recently received the results from the Geotech Ltd. ZTEM airborne survey. The survey was utilized to prioritize the exploration success from the spring (see press release dated June 26, 2009) for additional drilling. In the spring of 2009, White Pine initiated a drill program to test six regional VTEM anomalies on the joint venture claim group. Four of the six anomalies produced significant to anomalous Zn-Cu intersections and values. The ZTEM survey has identified low resistivity anomalies directly over the zone that suggests that it could also continue potentially to greater depth at the G1 and G3 anomalies. These anomalies will be the target of additional drilling once freeze-up in the lowlands has been completed".

The exploration program is managed by White Pine for the Joint Venture partners under supervision of Mike Kilbourne, P.Geo. President, White Pine Resources Inc. Mr. Kilbourne prepared the information pertaining to the airborne survey and drilling plans described above.

The Luc Bourdon and Bourdon West properties (a combined 8,944 hectares) were staked by Golden Valley in the fall of 2007 and spring of 2008. This ground was subsequently optioned to White Pine and Noront in August 2008, whereas White Pine and Noront could equally earn a combined undivided 70% of the property by incurring expenditures of $5 million within 3 years of the agreement date.
