Golden Share Intersects 0.54 g/t Au Over 32.59 m at Pistol Lake in Shebandowan Belt

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2011) - Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:GSH) is pleased to provide the results from the first four holes drilled on the Pistol Lake target of its Shebandowan Gold Project ("SGP") located in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.

As previously announced, eight holes totaling 1,358 m have been drilled on Pistol Lake with four holes targeting the Trench 14 discovery (0.68 g/t Au over 36 m in the immediate eastern extension of the JF West Zone), three holes in a north-south geological cross section 150 m east of the edge of the resource area while one hole was drilled within the inferred resource to fill an information gap.

Three of the four holes targeting the Trench 14 discovery yielded the following results :

  • PL-11-18 : 0.54 g/t Au over 32.59 m from 14.61 to 47.20 m

  • PL-11-14 : 1.28 g/t Au over 6.45 m from 14.45 to 20.90 m

  • PL-11-16 : 0.59 g/t Au over 8.00 m from 53.00 to 61.00 m

  • PL-11-16 : 2.67 g/t Au over 1.00 m from 71.00 to 72.00 m

Hole PL-11-15 drilled in the inferred resource yielded 0.64 g/t Au over 2.00 m from 124.91 to 126.91 m and 0.53 g/t over 3.93 m from 152.72 to 156.65 m.

Results for the remaining four holes drilled on Pistol Lake are pending.

President and Chief Executive Officer Philippe Giaro commented:

"The mineralized zone observed on surface is well developed in all holes drilled so far and displays very strongly sheared volcanics showing strong hematite and carbonate alteration with abundant quartz-carbonate veinlets and locally semi-massive veinlets of pyrite-chalcopyrite. This first set of results confirms the depth extension of the gold mineralization and the strength of the mineralized system. We have so far drilled targets over which we have visual control and look forward to keep expanding the zone towards the east with the added definition obtained from the recently completed ground geophysics".

Drilling is on-going and new geological concepts regarding the Band Ore Main Zone and Band Ore Zone # 4 are currently being tested.

The drilling is performed at high angle to the mineralized structures and the above intersections represent near true widths. Individual samples weighting 3kg on average have been taken from sawn half core at +/- 1 meter intervals in the mineralized zones with consideration of the geological contacts. A rigorous QA/QC program involves the random inclusion of mineralized standards, duplicates and blanks at the sample collection and preparation stage. The samples are shipped to the ALS laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario, for analysis by fire assay on 50g pulp samples. The sample preparation procedure involves the crushing of the entire 3kg sample followed by quartering to obtain a representative 250g sample which is entirely pulverized and out of which a 50g sample is isolated for analysis by fire assay. Samples suspected to contain visible gold or higher grade mineralization are assayed using the metallic sieve technique on a 1000g sample.

About the Shebandowan Gold Project (SGP)

The SGP is located 90 km west of Thunder Bay, north-western Ontario, in the Rainy River - Atikokan - Shebandowan emerging gold province where Osisko Mining Corporation is currently developing the 10.52 M oz Au Hammond Reef gold deposit 100 km to the West of the Company's project. The SGP is serviced by a railroad line, a high tension power line and the Trans-Canada highway all providing excellent infrastructure to the project.
