Michel David Joins Radisson Mining as President and CEO

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2010) - Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RDS) ("Radisson" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Michel David, B.Sc. has been appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. Mr. David has over 35 years of experience in geology and geophysics, base metal and precious metal exploration and mining. He obtained a B.Sc., in geology from McGill University in 1975 and has managed numerous projects in southern Africa, Brazil, Colombia, the Philippines, Korea and throughout North America with emphasis on the Abitibi gold belt in northwestern Quebec where Radisson's highly prospective O'Brien and Kewagama properties are located. Prior to this, Mr. David was president and CEO of a Val-d'Or based mining exploration company. Under his guidance the company made significant gold discoveries and is presently exploring and developing both from underground.

Effective February 14, 2010, Mr. Dale M. Hendrick elected to resign as Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors due to ongoing concerns with health matters preventing his full devotion to the duties of Chairman and Director of the Company. Both Mr. Hendrick and Mr. Ken Murton, the former President and CEO of Radisson, readily endorsed the retention of Michel David as President and CEO of Radisson. Mr. Murton, who will assume the position of Chairman of the Board, stated, "We deeply regret the departure of Dale Hendrick as Chairman, but look forward to his wise counsel in a consulting capacity. The fine track record of Michel David plus his strong contacts with international sources of capital for attractive mining projects like those of Radisson make Michel the ideal candidate to manage our Company and achieve its potential. We at Radisson were particularly impressed by Mr. David's knowledge and high regard for our O'Brien and Kewagama properties and his belief that Radisson should retain 100% interest in these properties and not joint venture them with other mining companies".

About Radisson Mining: Radisson is a Quebec-based exploration company with an interest in seven properties in northwestern Quebec and one property in northwestern Ontario. The main asset of Radisson, the O'Brien - Kewagama Properties comprise 617.48 hectares in the western part of Cadillac Township, Quebec in the heart of the Abitibi Gold belt. These Properties contain the former O'Brien Mine, the highest grade and the most important gold producer in the Cadillac Mining Camp in Quebec when it was producing from the early 1930s to the mid 1950s. Radisson now has established a new zone, the 36 East Zone, 2500' east of the old producing zone of the O'Brien Mine, with comparable high grades of gold. The Company completed a successful drill program in 2008 on the O'Brien Mine property and the contiguous Kewagama Mine Property. A second major gold project of Radisson is the Massicotte claims group described in the Company's news release of September 2, 2009 available on the Company's website.

Several mining companies are producing gold or have established gold reserves in the Cadillac Break in the same area of northwestern Quebec as Radisson's O'Brien and Kewagama properties. These companies include Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited, Alexis Minerals Corporation, Aurizon Mines Limited, Globex Mining Enterprises Inc., Iamgold Corporation, and Osisko Mining Corp.
