International Samuel Exploration Acquires Jewelry Box Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2011) - International Samuel Exploration Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ISS) (the "Company") is pleased to report that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Jewelry Box property, located in central British Columbia.

The Jewelry Box property is located some 45 kilometres SSE of the town of Smithers, British Columbia. The claim block covers an area of some 8668 hectares. Access to the project is by way of road and cat trail, or by helicopter.

The claim block covers multiple Minfile occurrences with the most notable being the Jewelry Box and Ridge showings, which historically yielded grab samples up to 41 g/t and 18.3 g/t gold respectively (Aris Reports 19293 & 20391) along with significant silver and copper values. Both showings are proximal to a major NNE trending structure, separated by some 1.2 kilometres.

Widespread anomalous gold and copper values can be observed in historic rock/soils/silt samples throughout the northern portion of the property where the majority of the work has been focused. A regional stream geochemistry silt samples some 4 kilometres downstream from known mineralization also returned 0.260 g/t (1.910 g/t duplicate) gold.

In 2010, a single line induced polarization survey yielded a broad chargeability anomaly associated with increased resistivity some 500 metres to the east of the Jewelry Box showing. This anomaly remains open to the west and to depth and is of interest.

The company intends to conduct an additional 20 line kilometres of induced polarization and soil geochemistry and trenching covering favourable zones as defined by historic data. Permitting for ground work and a drill program is underway.

The Company is purchasing a 100% right, title and interest in and to the Jewelry Box, JBR1, JBR2, and Ridge Moly Claims for a total of $130,000, the issuance of a total of 1,100,000 common shares and the Vendors will retain a 2% net smelter return royalty ("NSR"). The Company shall retain the right to purchase a 1% portion of the NSR from the Vendors at any time by the payment of Cdn. $1,000,000.

The transaction is subject to the acceptance of the TSX Venture Exchange.
