Update on Lac Fortune West, Richmont to Restart Production to the North East of Golden Share's Property

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2009) - Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share")(TSX VENTURE:GSH) is pleased to provide an update on its 100% owned Lac Fortune West property ("Lac Fortune") located in Northwestern Quebec, Canada. The property is strategically located on the Cadillac fault, 25 km west of Rouyn Noranda and directly to the southwest of the Francoeur gold mine. It is easily accessible by national road 117 which passes just south of the property. See attached figure: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/LacFortuneWest_Francoeur1.pdf.

The Francoeur gold mine owned by Richmont Mines ("Richmont") is part of a group of 11 similar deposits located within the Francoeur-Wasa shear zone, a very important east-north-east trending regional gold bearing structure which transects the northeast corner of Golden Share's Lac Fortune. The principal deposits located in the Francoeur-Wasa shear zone have produced over 500,000 ounces of gold from approximately 2.6 million tonnes of ore with a recovered grade of 6.07 g/t of gold (Richmont Mines Inc. press release dated August 7th 2009).

In the light of the recent strength in the gold price near $1,000 per ounce, Richmont has announced its intention to restart production at the underground Francoeur gold mine in 2011. A recent economic study indicates that the Francoeur project has probable reserves of 615,664 tonnes grading 6.91 g/t Au (Richmont Mines Inc. - NI 43-101 Compilation Technical Report for the Francoeur Gold Project dated August 5th, 2009, Adam, D.).

Golden Share's Lac Fortune hosts the South King Zone, an east-west trending gold zone recognized by drilling over a strike length of 780 m and located 500 m south of the Francoeur-Wasa shear zone. It displays several geological similarities with the Francoeur-Wasa shear zone orebodies, notably mineralization hosted at an andesite - gabbro lithological contact in close spatial association with an hematite - altered felsic intrusive showing some local breccia textures. Diamond drilling by previous operators yielded the following mineralized intercepts :



Drilling by SearchGold Resources Inc. in 2004 - 2005 :

- 855.58 g/t Au over 0.35 m from 29.83 to 30.18 m
- 60.43 g/t Au over 0.27 m from 69.18 to 69.45 m
- 16.81 g/t Au over 0.50 m from 42.23 to 42.73 m
- 1.02 g/t Au over 11.43 m from 73.90 to 85.33 m
- 1.83 g/t Au over 10.94 m from 72.50 to 83.44 m (including 11.42 g/t Au
over 1.50 m)
- 1.21 g/t Au over 11.37 m from 52.73 to 64.10 m
- 1.74 g/t Au over 6.20 m from 40.82 to 47.02 m
- 1.48 g/t Au over 7.32 m from 32.39 to 39.71 m

Drilling by Forbex Resources Inc. in 2001 :

- 10.30 g/t Au over 2.75 m from 57.10 to 59.85 m
- 1.13 g/t Au over 12.40 m from 44.40 to 56.80 m


The presence of both higher grade intercepts and mineralization over broad intervals clearly demonstrate the potential of the South King Zone. Additionally, the geological setting of the mineralization, which is associated with shearing in a felsic intrusive hosted in a gabbro along with the presence of hematite and fuchsite alteration, shows key positive indicators for the sector.

Given the resurgence of nearby mining activity adjacent to its Lac Fortune property, Golden Share will evaluate all scenarios moving forward to fully benefit from the renewed interest in this strategic sector of the mining camp.
