The Company is highly encouraged by the widespread distribution of high-grade silver mineralization. These high-grade silver-lead-zinc channel samples were collected from five separate vein systems, which are all oriented north-south and are exposed in an area 1,000 metres long by 100 to 400 metres wide. Individual veins are exposed intermittently for distances up to 400 metres along strike. The lateral strike extent of the veins is covered by glacial deposits and vegetative cover both to the north and south. Assay results are pending for a soil sampling program conducted during September which was designed to trace the known vein systems beneath cover.

The lateral and vertical extent of the vein system is currently unknown. Considering the high-grade nature and widespread distribution of mineralization discovered thus far, the Company feels that Lyn has excellent potential for discovery of a significant silver deposit with major lead and zinc credits, possibly analogous to the Keno Hill district located approximately 200 kilometres to the northwest.

As previously reported, the Company plans to test Lyn's potential by conducting a 2,000 metre Phase II conventional core drilling program during the next field season. Driven and its contractor Aurora Geosciences Ltd. are continuing with preparation of a Yukon Class 3 Permit application and the Company has meanwhile received three core drilling bids. Driven continues to await analytical results for core material from the abbreviated Phase I Winkie drilling program completed in late summer.

The Company advises that samples LR-023, LR-024, LR-224 and LR-225 were previously reported as rock/grab samples (see news releases dated August 22, September 6 and September 8, 2011). They are in fact chip-channel samples, the results of which are hereby reiterated as such along with sample widths in the table above.

Geologist U. Peter Kurisoo, a Director of the Company, is the Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 responsible for the technical information in this news release.

Driven is a publicly traded exploration company focused on the discovery of high-value precious metals deposits in North America. Please visit our web site at
