Pro Minerals Inc.: Shining Tree Gold Project Program Initiated

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) - Pro Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PRM) and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce that the Company has initiated an exploration program consisting of line cutting and geophysics on its wholly owned Shining Tree Gold Project, located in the Shining Tree camp near Kirkland Lake, Ontario. The Company has engaged Insight Geophysics to carry out the survey which will include Deep Time Domain IP/Resistivity, and will be utilized to locate targets up to a minimum depth of 500m. The line cutting portion of the program is well underway, and the geophysical phase of the program is expected to commence in a few days. The duration of the program is approximately 14 days, and once the results are received and analyzed, the Company will then design a follow up program consisting of sampling and diamond drilling.

The Shining Tree Gold Project consists of 5 claims units (80 hectares) located in the Churchill Township, in the Province of Ontario. It is located within the prolific Abitibi greenstone belt which is renowned for its concentration of world-class gold and Au-Cu-Zn-Ag deposits. As of late, the Shining Tree Camp has been the subject of much exploration activity. Pro Minerals' claim block, was at the centre of a staking rush in the late 1980's led by famed prospector Carl Forbes, which gained notoriety when a major Canadian news network filmed and aired a short documentary showing competing exploration companies who hired high-school, and college track athletes to stake on their behalf in an effort get the most prospective ground in the shortest amount of time possible. This claim block has been held privately since that time, and thus access to results from further exploration activities has been restricted. Pro believes the Shining Tree Project is a highly prospective property for gold occurrences. Given available infrastructure such as highways, power and lodging, this underexplored project creates a remarkable opportunity for a potential world class gold discovery.
