Entourage Metals Acquires Black Raven Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Entourage Metals Ltd. ("Entourage Metals" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EMT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter agreement to acquire a 100% interest to the Black Raven Property, located in Northwestern Ontario.

Located within the Hemlo Greenstone Belt, the 68 km2 Black Raven Property hosts multiple high-grade gold occurrences. The Super G prospect is a gold-bearing quartz vein within a shear zone in mafic volcanics. To date eight grab and channel samples averaged 275.0 g/t Au (the samples ranged from 6.47 g/t to 846.4 g/t) were collected at Super G. Of these, six samples were over 15.0 g/t Au and included samples that had values of 846.4, 570.0, 391.4, 229.7, 110.2, and 40.0 g/t Au. That part of the vein which can be seen in outcrop averages 0.3 meters wide with a length of 12.75 meters on surface. The extent of the shear and vein is unknown but may extend under cover. Other quartz veins occur within 100 meters of the Super G vein and returned 9.2 g/t Au from grab sampling.

In addition, over 20 gold bearing syenite boulders with gold content ranging from 1.01 g/t to 95.3 g/t Au, averaging 12.74 g/t Au, occur over the property. These boulders are from a different host rock than the Super G Vein but the northern part of the property contains an internal monzonite/syenite stock that is the possible source of all the gold bearing boulders.

The Property is within a typical greenstone belt that is underlain predominately by Archean mafic, felsic and ultramafic rocks.

Limited drilling has been conducted on the Property and focused on known outcrop occurrences, such as the Super G Vein. These drill holes were drilled to very shallow depths (<25 m vertical depth). The lack of significant exploration at Black Raven is an example of the limited exploration that has occurred in the Hemlo Greenstone Belt over the past two decades.

The Black Raven Property is accessible from a logging road which connects to the Trans-Canada Highway. This logging road flanks the property on the southwest side. Otherwise, access to the property is by boat or aircraft. The Property is located near the northwestern margin of the eastern portion of the Schreiber-Hemlo greenstone belt in Northern Ontario, 220 km east-northeast of the City of Thunder Bay, and 14 km northeast of the town of Marathon. Maps and photos of the Black Raven Property can be reviewed at www.entouragemetals.com.

Entourage Metals can earn a 100% interest in the property from an arms-length, third party group by paying $160,000 in cash ($30,000 in the first year) and issuing 600,000 shares (100,000 shares in the first year) over four years. Upon completion of an initial National Instrument 43-101 compliant mineral resource, Entourage will issue an additional 500,000 shares. Upon commencement of commercial production, the Company will be subject to a net smelter return royalty (NSR) of 2.5% with the option to purchase 1.5% NSR in increments of 0.5% NSR for $500,000.

The information contained herein is based on a review of digital and hard copy data obtained from the MNDMF government assessment files from the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry (MNDMF) Assessment File Directory (AFRI). Reports AFRI No. 42D16NE2011 and 42D16NE2009 are the source of the assay values contained in this press release. Entourage Metals LTD has assumed that the reports are substantially accurate and complete.

Mr. Florek has been unable to physically verify the sampling and analytical results contained in this press release. The data disclosed will be tested by Entourage's Phase I program which will comprehensively assess this interesting gold occurrence. The objective of Entourage's proposed exploration is to fully define the surface extent and tenor of the high grade gold mineralization with mapping, rock/soil sampling, and geophysical surveys and then to test depth potential with drilling.

The 2011 exploration program for the Black Raven Project is currently being managed by John Labrecque, P.Geo. under the supervision of John C. Florek, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Entourage Metals; both are Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Florek prepared and approved the information of a technical or scientific nature contained in this release.

Entourage Metals is a well structured junior exploration company with active mineral exploration projects in the Hemlo Greenstone Belt. The Company has recently commenced geophysical surveys on its Hemlo Area Properties. Details on Entourage Metals portfolio can be reviewed on the Company's website at www.entouragemetals.com.
