Golden Share IP Survey Defines Drill Targets on Elwood in Shebandowan Belt, Ontario, Canada

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) -

Editors Note: Photos for this release are available via Marketwire's website.

Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share")(TSX VENTURE:GSH) is pleased to provide an update on the Elwood Property ("Elwood") located 70 km west of Thunder Bay in the Shebandowan district of northwestern Ontario, Canada.

The Elwood property is located south of Golden Share's Shebandowan Project currently under consolidation through a transaction with Lake Shore Gold Corp. concerning the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Band Ore deposit (see news release dated March 28th 2011). Elwood is located south of the synvolcanic Shebandowan Felsic Intrusive Complex and shows several important, undeveloped gold showings associated with granodiorite dykes and/or sills hosted in a typical volcanic sequence (see attached figure 1 or visit : http://www.goldenshare.ca). A thorough initial exploration program comprising systematic compilation, ground geophysics, prospecting, geological mapping, channel sampling and a first diamond drilling program was executed by Golden Share and highlighted the U Zone as an important target.

The U Zone had never been drilled before Golden Share's program and a 485 m, first pass, 6 diamond drill hole program, yielded the following highlights :

  • EL-08-01: 2.38 g/t Au over 8.30 m from 17.00 m to 25.30 m 
    • including 14.97 g/t Au over 1 m from 18.00 to 19.00 m 

  • EL-08-02: 0.60 g/t Au over 7.45 m from 35.90 m to 43.35 m 
    • including 1.56 g/t Au over 1 m from 35.90 to 36.90 m 

In December 2010, Golden Share contracted Insight Geophysics Inc. of Oakville, Ontario, to follow-up on the initial drilling. Insight Geophysics Inc. executed an Insight Section Array / Tuned Gradient Array induced polarisation and resistivity survey over 5 line km to cover the U Zone and its immediate extensions. The survey demonstrated a very good correlation between zones of intense auriferous quartz veining and higher resistivity measurements. The IP survey confirmed the vertical extension of the mineralized system at depth and outlined drill targets associated with resistivity highs characteristic of quartz veining with associated chargeability anomalies (see attached figure 2 or visit : http://www.goldenshare.ca).

While Golden Share's anticipated next work program in the Shebandowan area will primarily focus on resource expansion, promising early-stage targets such as Elwood's U zone will be the object of systematic follow-up diamond drilling.

About the Shebandowan greenstone belt

The Southern part of northwestern Ontario is increasingly being recognized as an emerging gold province (see attached figure 3 or visit : http://www.goldenshare.ca). In the Fort Frances area, Rainy River has so far defined over 5 M oz Au in Indicated and Inferred Resources on their Rainy River Project. In the Atikokan area, Osisko Mining Corporation acquired Brett Resources Inc. following the discovery of the 6.7 M oz Au Hammond Reef deposit. The Shebandowan greenstone belt lies at the eastern end of this prolific province and is the object of intensifying exploration. Foundation Resources Inc. and Alto Ventures reported diamond drilling results of 8.39 g/t Au over 11.0 m and 4.88 g/t Au over 27.3 m on the East Coldstream Deposit located 15 km west of Golden Share's Shebandowan Project. In July 2010, Moss Lake Gold Mines ltd. provided an upgraded NI 43-101 resource estimate for its + 1 M oz Au Moss Lake deposit.
