Darnley Bay Resources Completes Spring 2011 Base Metals Drill Program

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) - Darnley Bay Resources Limited ("Darnley Bay") (TSX VENTURE:DBL) has completed its 2011 spring drilling program for base metals at the Paulatuk Property in the Northwest Territories. It commenced drilling target G-09-01A on March 30 and reached a depth of 242 meters, with the transition from semi-consolidated clay to vuggy dolomite occurring at 157 meters. Voids in excess of 3 meters and infiltration of sand and clay prevented further drilling.

The thick and loose nature of the cover material overlying difficult bedrock is proving to be a challenge for drilling, despite the new measures taken that proved more efficient than in 2010. Darnley Bay is reviewing its strategies with external consultants and is considering a number of options to move the base metals program forward.
