Golden Share Provides an Update on its Shebandowan Belt Summer Work Program

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 7, 2012) -

Editors' Note: There is a map associated with this press release.

Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GSH) is pleased to provide an update on its Shebandowan belt 2012 summer work program in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.

Shebandowan Project

The work of the past year on the Shebandowan project has opened up all targets with the following positive developments:

  • Pistol Lake Corridor : 3 km gold trend with an immediate 200 m extension of the JF West resource area to the east.
  • Band Ore Main Corridor : 1.5 km gold trend confirmed with a new model of several sub parallel zones with recent drill intercepts of up to 18.27 g/t Au over 2.70 m.
  • Conacher Corridor : 4 km gold trend on strike with Band Ore Zone N°4.

These developments greatly enhance the project and strengthen the potential for the delineation of a commercial gold deposit on the 8 km long Pistol Lake - Band Ore trend ("PLBO"). Current data shows an inferred resource of 150,000 oz Au** on Pistol Lake's JF West zone (PLBO west end) and historical resources of 250,000 oz Au*** at Band Ore (PLBO east end). Please see the attached figure or visit :

The field crew will be carrying out a geological mapping, prospecting and sampling program starting in July to confirm the continuity of the gold mineralization over the entire 8 km long PLBO. The extensive data base now provides compelling targets that will be the object of the upcoming surface program with the objective to refine the next round of drilling.

Larose property

The field crew started the surface program by mid-May which consists in geological mapping and prospecting along the lines of the fall 2011 freshly cut grid that covers the southern, yet unexplored, 4 km strike length of the Larose Shear Zone ("LSZ"). Other targets also being investigated on the property in parallel are :

  1. Parallel shears to the LSZ,
  2. Soil geochemical anomalies from Freewest,
  3. Pressure shadows and dilational jogs in the southwestern extension of the Obadinaw pluton,

A thorough compilation including the setting up of an ArcGIS data base for the property as well as a review of Freewest's previous diamond drill core is also being executed. Golden Share has retained the services of SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. (« SRK ») to perform structural geology investigations of stripped outcrops and available drill core in order to improve the understanding on the controls and geometry of the gold mineralization to optimize future drill targets. The Larose property is object of an option agreement with Viking Gold Exploration Inc. ("Viking") whereby Golden Share can acquire a 50% interest.

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.
