Argus Files NI 43-101 Resource Technical Report on the Hyland Gold Project and Presents at the PDAC Mining Investment Show

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2012) - Argus Metals Corp. (the "Company" or "Argus") (TSX VENTURE:AML) reports that it has filed on SEDAR a National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report in support of the resource estimate on the Main Zone Deposit in the Hyland Gold Project announced by the Company within a January 19, 2012 news release. The Technical report is also available on the Company's website at: http://www.argusmetalscorp.com/s/Hyland.asp

The Main Zone gold inferred resource, at a 0.6 g/t gold equivalent ("AuEq") cutoff now stands at 12,503,994 tonnes containing 361,692 ounces gold at 0.9 g/t and 2,248,948 ounces silver at 5.59 g/t which represents an increase of 209% over the historic, non NI 43-101 compliant resource. Based on the success of this previous season's Main Zone drilling campaign and the drilling of a new discovery area 4 km away, Argus management is planning for a much larger-scale drill campaign for the 2012 season.
