Entourage Metals (TSX VENTURE:EMT) Acquires Large Land Package Adjacent to Trelawney Mining and Augen Gold Deposits

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2011) - Entourage Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EMT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce it has acquired an option to earn a 100% interest in the Benton Gold Property located within the Abitibi Belt in the underexplored Southern Swayze greenstone belt, Benton Township, Ontario. The 203 square kilometer Benton property surrounds a portion of the Ridout Deformation Zone, within the Swayze Greenstone Belt, which is considered to be the western extension of the Larder Lake-Cadillac Deformation Zone. The Kirkland Lake Deposits and Kerr Addison-Chesterville gold deposits, associated with the Larder Lake-Cadillac Deformation Zone, have historic production exceeding 49 million ounces of gold.

This Ridout Deformation Zone hosts Trelawney Mining's Cote Lake Gold Deposit (Inferred Resource of 4.2 million oz. Au) and Augen Gold Corp.'s Jerome Mine (Inferred Resource of 1.03 million oz. Au). Entourage's claims cover over 15 km of this trend. The claims are approximately 35 km northwest of Trelawney Mining's Cote Lake Gold Deposit and 10 km northwest of Augen Gold Corp.'s Jerome Mine.

In 1993-94 the Ontario Geological Survey (OGS) carried out a regional drift sampling program over the entire Swayze Greenstone Belt (SGB). Despite the limited sampling coverage over the Benton Property, a significant gold anomaly in the heavy mineral fraction of a till sample was identified on this property. The anomalous gold grain count is located in the middle of the property. Other anomalous gold grain counts in the SGB, outside of the Benton Property, are adjacent to known mineral deposits and occurrences.

Entourage management believes this new property represents an excellent early discovery stage opportunity. The area is covered by extensive overburden which frustrated previous exploration attempts, and presents the opportunity of an underexplored area. The rock types here are very similar to the Kirkland Lake Greenstone Belt; consisting of Temiskaming conglomerates, volcanics, and porphyries. Entourage plans to carry out soil sampling, geological mapping, geophysics, and basal till sampling to be followed by diamond drilling.

The Agreement

Entourage Metals can earn a 100-per-cent interest in the property from an arm's-length third party group by paying $200,000 in cash and issuing 500,000 shares over five years. Upon completion of an initial National Instrument 43-101-compliant mineral resource, Entourage will issue an additional 300,000 shares. Within 30 days of filing a positive, bankable feasibility study 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 3 per cent with the option to purchase 2 per cent NSR in increments of 1 per cent NSR for $500,000.

At Entourage's Hemlo area properties the Phase 1 diamond drilling program at Toothpick West property is now complete. Three holes totaling 2,680 meters have been drilled. Results will be posted once all assays have been completed. A 5,000 meter drill program will commence shortly at the Rous Lake property, 8 km from Hemlo Mines.

Entourage's exploration activity is under the supervision of John C. Florek, P.Geo, Vice-President Exploration for Entourage Metals. Mr. Florek is a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Florek prepared and approved the information contained in this release.
