Golden Share Acquires Property Near Eagle Hill's Find of 14.2 G/T Au Over 52 M, Quebec, Canada

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 1, 2010) - Golden Share Mining Corporation («Golden Share»)(TSX VENTURE:GSH) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the 29 claims, 16.2 km² Vent d'Or Gold Property ("Vent d'Or") located in Northwestern Quebec, Canada. The property is accessible by road and located in the southern part of the Chibougamau-Matagami greenstone belt 40 km south of the city of Chibougamau.

The property straddles the Opawica-Guercheville east-west structure host of the Joe Mann gold mine which operated between 1955 and 2005 and produced 1.2 million ounces of gold (4,607,522 tonnes at 8.32 g/t Au). See attached map: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/Golden_Share_Figure_1_0401.pdf

Eagle Hill Exploration Corp. (TSXV:EAG) recently reported a drill intersection of 14.2 g/t Au over 52 m on their Windfall property located in a similar geological context 70 km southwest of Golden Share's Vent d'Or property. Eagle Hill Windfall's property is located at the intersection of east-west and north-east structures (Urban deformation zone and Urban Barry shear zone) while Golden Share's Vent d'Or property is located at the junction of the Opawica-Guercheville structure and the Fancamp fault zone in a similar structural setting.

One of the main structural features recognized on the Vent d'Or property is a recently discovered 10 m wide shear zone on which Golden Share collected surface grab samples reporting up to 10.10 g/t Au ("Vent d'Or shear zone") during a property visit. This shear zone is on strike with the Opawica-Guercheville structure which is host of the Joe Mann mine.

The additional following highlights enhance the potential of the Vent d'Or property :

  • A large gold till anomaly was outlined in the east-central part of the property by a 1994 Quebec Government regional survey. The source of this gold anomaly has never been identified and suggests the Vent d'Or shear zone as a possible source. See attached map: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/Golden_Share_Figure_2_0401.pdf
  • The Vent d'Or shear zone can be clearly identified on historical geophysical surveys and transects the entire property.
  • The Vent d'Or shear zone is a virgin target which has never been targeted specifically by any drilling campaign.

Elsewhere on the property, sporadic historical work targeted mostly subsidiary structures to the Vent d'Or shear zone. A few previous drill holes to the south returned mineralized intercepts of up to 11.30 g/t Au over 0.30 m and 4.19 g/t Au over 1.30 m.

Golden Share can acquire a 100% interest in the Vent d'Or Property over two years by issuing the Vendor a total of 500,000 Golden Share common shares (300,000 shares upon signature, and 200,000 shares on the first anniversary date) and by incurring a total of $200,000 in exploration expenditures ($100,000 in the first year and $100,000 in the second year).

Additionally 400,000 shares can be issued at any time in the event that measured and indicated resources representing a metal content of 500,000 ounces of gold or more can be defined; a first tranche of 200,000 shares would be issued when a first threshold of 250,000 ounces of gold is achieved. The Vendor will retain a 2% NSR that Golden Share can buy back for $1,000,000 per 1% NSR bracket, or for a total of $2,000,000 for the 2% NSR.
