La Ronge Gold to Commence Follow-Up Preview SW Exploration Drilling This Month

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2012) - La Ronge Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:LAR) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that permits have been received from the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Environment to enable the Company to carry out a drilling program this summer at the Preview SW gold deposit located in the La Ronge Gold Belt in north central Saskatchewan. Drilling carried out on this gold deposit during this past winter was successful in confirming the results of historical drilling carried out by Cameco in the late 1980's. The main objective of this summer's drill program will be to define the extent of the gold mineralization which remains open along strike and down dip. The southernmost hole drilled on this deposit (PR12-123) intersected 6.42 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) over 33.0 metres (m), and 8.26 g/t Au over 19.55 m. It is anticipated that approximately 2,000 metres will be drilled in the priority one program, and that approximately 2,500 additional metres of follow-up drilling will be performed upon the success of the priority one program. Drilling should commence by late June 2012. Please click on the following link to view the Phase Two Drill Hole Plan Map:
