Kirrin Commences Gravity Survey to Define Drill Targets at Grevet REE Property

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 27, 2011) - Kirrin Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KYM) announces the commencement of a geophysical program at its Grevet REE (rare earth element) project in northwestern Quebec. Kirrin has retained Abitibi Geophysics Inc. of Val-d'Or, Quebec, to complete a gravity survey comprising about 3.4 line kilometres at 25–metre station intervals. The gravity survey will cover sections of the project area that may be underlain by a large carbonatite body.

Quebec is host to a number of impressive REE sampling and drilling results, including the Montviel Property operated by GéoMégA Ressources and the Eldor Property operated by Commerce Resources Corp. Kirrin commenced exploration at its Grevet REE property in late April 2010. Sampling results of carbonatite dykes and dykelets have demonstrated the presence of encouraging amounts of rare earth elements and include 14.19% TREO (total rare earth oxide) in a grab sample from a narrow carbonatite dykelet and 1.61% LREO across 2.2 metres from a wider carbonatite dyke. .

Kirrin has designed a three phase program for its 2011 exploration at the Grevet REE property (NR February 3, 2011). The first phase commenced in May with prospecting on priority areas, including the collection of samples and assessment of exploration potential. Contingent on encouraging results, a second phase of follow-up work intended to identify and define drill targets could commence in July. A compilation and interpretation of the results from phases 1 and 2 will determine if a phase three drill program would commence in September-October.

Kirrin is earning a 100% interest in the Grevet REE property by spending $1,850,000 on exploration and making payments of $20,000 over four years. Kirrin recently extended its land interests and may earn a 100% interest in the Grevet Extension property by spending $250,000 on exploration and making payments of $25,000 over four years. The property now consists of 86 claims totalling 2,024 ha.
