ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 30, 2014) - Radisson Mining Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RDS) ("Radisson") is pleased to announce the appointment of Jean Dion to its Board of Directors.

Jean Dion is a visionary and one of the most influential entrepreneurs in Rouyn-Noranda. In the 90s, he founded the Dion group, which became one of the biggest players in Rouyn-Noranda's commercial and industrial sectors. The Dion group, which now has about 300 employees, includes a dozen Abitibi-Témiscamingue companies involved in mining, construction equipment, equipment rental, real estate, the automotive sector and recreational products.

As of September 30, 2014, the members of the Board of Directors held 11,479,850 shares of the Company for a total of 14.40% of the share capital.

"Radisson's ambition is to transition from mining exploration company to junior producer in the near future. Steps have already been taken in this direction, including the recalculation of resources (November 2013), the metallurgical study (August 2014) and the preliminary economic assessment of Zone 36 East currently underway. The addition of Jean Dion, a businessman with business and financial management skills, to Radisson's Board of Directors strongly reinforces the expertise and experience already in place. We enthusiastically welcome him," said Radisson's President, Mario Bouchard.

They contain the O'Brien Mine, which is considered to have been the highest grade gold producer of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt when it was in production (1,310,356 short tons at 0.448 oz/t from 1925 to 1956; RPA, May 2007). The Company is focusing exploration efforts on Zone 36 East, located approximately 2,000 feet (610 metres) east of the main shaft of the old O'Brien mine.
