Knick Exploration Prepares Spring Drilling on its East-West Gold Property

VAL-D'OR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2009) - Knick Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KNX) ("Knick "Exploration" or "the Corporation") wishes to announce that all its historical drill data, which represents more than 180 drill holes, have been processed into Geotic Software under the supervision of Donald Theberge, Eng., MBA., in preparation for a drilling program planned for Spring 2009.

Data compilation is presently underway and will generate several sections and maps that will allow the Corporation to identify new drill targets and maximize its chances of success. A first 3D model will be available in the coming weeks.

The East-West Gold Property is located on strike with Niogold's Marban property and the Wesdome Kiena gold mine, which hosts two gold-bearing zones, the East and West zones. Past drilling on the property returned two interesting assay results: 72.39 g/t gold over 3.2 m (CD-55) and 79.5 g/t gold over 3.96 m (CD-78) (Source: 43-101 report by D. Theberge, Eng. M.B.A.). The property remains virtually untested below the 600-foot level, with almost all the drill results between surface and a depth of 600 feet.

"We feel that the property has strong potential at the 600-foot level and deeper," said Jacques Brunelle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Knick Exploration. "We are looking forward to start drilling this spring, which will be a defining moment for the Company and its investors."

The Corporation intends to update its shareholders on a monthly basis. Donald ThTberge, Eng., M.B.A, independent consultant, is the qualified person who has reviewed the content of this news release.
