IEMR Update for Current Exploration Program at Pine Tree

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2011) - IEMR Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IRI) is pleased to report that the 2011 drilling program has been completed on the Pine Tree Project near Mina, Nevada.

Nine diamond drill holes totaling 5652.7 meters (18,545.5 feet) have been completed as part of the program. The table below lists the completed holes and their locations can be seen in figure 1 (http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/IRI0812.pdf). This brings to total drilling on the property since 2005 to 14,069.7 meters (43,797.5 feet) in 30 holes for the property. Previous drilling was conducted by Mosquito Consolidated Gold Mines Ltd. ("Mosquito"), who currently manages exploration on the Pine Tree project on behalf of IEMR.

The drill holes encountered three different types of mineralization, corresponding to the three distinct mineralizing events previously identified on the property. These are the older copper bearing calc-silicate skarn replacement, the molybdenum bearing stockwork and the younger arsenopyrite-precious-base metal bearing systems. Assay results will be released once all analytical, check and precious metal analytical work is completed.

Almost the entire core was sampled and cut in half using a diamond saw. Half the core is sent for analysis with the other half being kept and stored at the core facility located on site. Following cutting the samples are picked up directly by ALS Chemex and taken to their fully accredited analytical laboratory in Reno. They are first analyzed for 47 elements using a four (4) acid digestion with analysis by Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma Optical Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) and for gold using a 50 gram fire assay with an Atomic Absorption (AA) finish. Copper and Molybdenum bearing samples are then checked by using a larger 5 gram sample and analyzed using a pressed power pellet X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF). In addition duplicates, blanks, and standards are analyzed to ensure analytical accuracy and reproducibility. All rejects are being kept for further analysis and for use in metallurgical testing.

Geologically the intersection lengths and type of mineralization encountered in the drilling are listed in Table below. These are mineralized zones identified by the geology personnel, that are used to produce the geologic block model that IEMR expects will be used in a resource calculation. Assays will determine the grade of these zones.

Once all the assays are received, IEMR is going to calculate an initial National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource for the project, the results of which will be used to control additional drilling and development of the project.
