Douglas Lake Further Defines Structurally Important Sites and Improves Target Definition at Handeni

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2012) - Douglas Lake Minerals Inc. (the "Company" or "Douglas Lake") (OTCBB:DLKM) is pleased to report progress in their exploration program on their Handeni license situated in the gold fields of eastern Tanzania.

Data received from FUGRO's HELITEM helicopter based time-domain electromagnetic system flown during October 2011 have now been interpreted. The survey was conducted over the entire Douglas Lake Minerals licence area at 200 meter spaced flight lines in a north-south direction. Electromagnetic (TEM) as well as radiometric data for K (Potassium), U (Uranium), and Th (Thorium), as well as total count was collected simultaneously for the 4740 line kilometres flown. Selected areas were flown at a line spacing of 100 meters.

"The potential of our exploration area is continuously confirmed and extended with each phase of our exploration program and we are steadily progressing with our goal to have several simultaneous targets, each one at a different stage of exploration, in order to reduce our exploration risk profile to investors," said Dr. Reyno Scheepers, President and CEO of Douglas Lake Minerals. "With the added geophysical detail provided by FUGRO as well as the investigation of a third major target we continue to expand the potential value of our properties," he added.

The interpreted data clearly delineated subsurface geological features of importance to gold and base metal mineralization in this high grade metamorphic terrain. The data proved to be invaluable in the definition of structurally important sites and target definition.

A soil sampling program of approximately 2500 samples targeting our third major geophysical anomaly has been completed. This "Masala Hills" target is situated approximately 5 kilometers north of Magambazi and is the third of 17 identified geophysical targets. The target follows a strike length of approximately 6 kilometers. The previous two targets, Magambazi East and Kwandege have already provided major gold intersections in drill core. Samples are being submitted for the analyses of gold and a suite of other elements at accredited laboratories. The target area comprises an area of approximately 25 square kilometers, defined by geophysical data. Following interpretation of the soil sample results the Company may decide to embark on a program of pitting and trenching and/or detailed ground geophysics including induced polarization.
