Fancamp's Lac Lamelee South Project-199m Grading 28.4% FeT

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 12, 2011) - Fancamp Exploration Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:FNC) is pleased to announce additional positive assay results from Lac Lamelée South Deposit. Assays from the final three holes of the 2011 drilling program, in addition to the results released on December 1, 2011, continue to intersect high grade magnetite and hematite iron formations and indicate that this property has the potential of significant tonnages in this important iron ore district. Other properties in the area include the operating ArcelorMittal Fire Lake Mine and the adjacent CHM/FNC Fire Lake North project with its newly released NI 43-101 resource of 1061.3 Million tonnes @ 28.8% total iron, measured, indicated and inferred.

Drill hole LS-2011-15 intersected two significant intersections of 41.4 metres (m) grading 38.5% Total Iron ("FeT") from 4.0m - 45.4m, followed by 18.6 metres grading 29.0% FeT from 45.4m - 64.0m, and 49.5 metres grading 22.3% FeT from 106.5m - 156.0m, followed by 49.2 metres grading 26.2% FeT from 156.0m - 205.2m.

Drill hole LS-2011-16 contained 199.0 metres grading 28.4% FeT from 99.0m - 298.0m, including 142.9 metres grading 30.4% FeT from 139.1m - 282.0m.

Drill hole LS-2011-17, intersected only a portion of the mineralized stratigraphy, yet contained an intersection of 91.0 metres grading 26.6% FeT from 6.0m - 97.0m with two higher grade magnetite iron formations, of 21.4 metres grading 31.5% FeT from 6.0m - 27.4m, and 11.5 metres grading 32.6% FeT from 46.5m - 58.0m.

The drill program was completed on October 23, 2011, with a total of 5,613m in 17 drill holes. The adjoining table summarizes the results of the complete 2011 drilling program. Further drilling is planned for 2012 with the objective of establishing inferred and indicated resources for this significant iron deposit.
