Entourage Metals (TSX VENTURE:EMT) Commences Surface Program at Benton Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 3, 2011) - Entourage Metals Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EMT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that surface exploration has commenced at the Benton gold property. The 2011 program consists of reconnaissance level Gravimetric and Soil Gas Hydrocarbon (SGH) Surveysto identify areas meriting more detailed exploration.

The SGH program will collect over 5,000 soil samples for analysis. The applicability of this method is useful in terrains where thick overburden occurs and where conventional soil geochemistry is ineffectual. This relatively new geochemical method has been shown to accurately identify known mineralization at depth and has contributed to recent gold discoveries. The SGH survey is a deep penetrating geochemical method that involves the analysis of various hydrocarbons using a forensic approach for identification.

A substantial portion of the Benton property is covered in deep overburden and swamps; ideal for a survey of this type. In addition, the property is adjacent to Trelawney Mining/Augen Gold Corp's Jerome Mine (Inferred Resource of 1.03 million oz. Au). This recent drill discovery is credited to the use of SGH.

The Benton Gold Property is located in the underexplored Southern Swayze Greenstone Belt, Benton Township, Ontario within the prolific Abitibi Subprovince. The 203 square kilometer property surrounds a portion of the Ridout Deformation Zone, within the Swayze Greenstone Belt, which is considered to be the western extension of the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break. The Kirkland Lake Deposits and Kerr Addison-Chesterville gold deposits, associated with the Cadillac-Larder Lake Break, 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 the Jerome Mine. Entourage's claims cover over 11 km of this trend.

Entourage's Benton property is covered by extensive overburden which frustrated earlier exploration and presents the opportunity of an underexplored area. The rock types here are very similar to the Kirkland Lake Greenstone Belt; consisting of Temiskaming sediments, volcanics, and porphyries.
