About Lakeside Minerals Inc.

Lakeside Minerals Inc. is engaged in acquiring, exploring, and developing mineral properties in Quebec. The Company's Launay property is a major consolidated land package, 227 mineral claims covering 102.5 sq km, located in the heart of the Abitibi, 48 km northeast of Rouyn-Noranda.

The Launay property straddles nearly 22 km of the Macamic deformation zone: a major deformation zone in the Abitibi subprovince located north of the Porcupine-Destor deformation zone. Claims cover a 17 km long trend of known gold occurrences, several of which display significant historical gold drill intersections. The property claims also cover a broad 6 km trend of gold in soil anomalies never tested by drilling.

The Launay property land package allows the Company to focus on an extensive trend of known gold occurrences associated with a major deformation zone in the heart of the Abitibi subprovince. Large portions of the Macamic deformation zone, subsidiary faults, and splays remain to be fully explored. The Launay property displays excellent potential for discovery.
