Laurion Commences Deep Drilling Program on the Sturgeon River Mine to Complete National Instrument 43-101 Compliant Ore Resource Report

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) - Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LME)(OTCBB:LMEFF) ("Laurion") is pleased to announce that that Laurion has contracted Cobra Diamond Drilling of Thunder Bay to commence a drill program of approximately 2,800 metres consisting of 6 deep holes on the Sturgeon River Property, Beardmore, ON. The drill will be mobilised to the site on October 14th.

"The drill program will test the down plunge extent of the Sturgeon River Mine below the 530 metre level, the purpose of which is to acquire sufficient information to complete a National Instrument 43-101 compliant ore resource report," commented Cynthia Le Sueur - Aquin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. " The zone below the 640 metre level is untested. A recently completed 3D model of the mine workings was used for targeting this drilling and this model indicates that multiple veins intersect the main No. 3 vein (No.10, 11 and M veins) in the lower mine levels, thus increasing the shoot strike length and presenting multiple intersecting veins, possibly resulting in wider mineralized zones at depth."

The technical information contained in this news release has been verified by Joe Campbell, P. Geo., consulting geologist with GeoVector Management Inc. Mr. Campbell is the project manager for Laurion's Sturgeon River project and he is a Qualified Person as defined in "National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Properties."
