Lions Gate Metals Inc.: Aeroquest Engaged to Perform Airborne Geophysical Survey on Poplar

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire – Nov. 19, 2009) - Lions Gate Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LGM) ("LGM" or the "Company") has signed an agreement with Aeroquest Limited ("Aeroquest") to complete an Airborne Geophysical Survey on the Poplar Project near Houston, B.C.

About the Survey

The airborne geophysical survey ("Survey") will be a time domain electromagnetic and magnetic survey covering 2,572 line kilometres on the Poplar Project. The Survey, which will take approximately 10 flying days to complete, has already begun. The Survey is dependent on weather, but is expected to be completed sometime in late November or early December of this year.

LGM has also completed a deep induced polarization program. The data collected is currently being analyzed and interpreted by Insight Geophysics Inc.

The purpose of these surveys is to look for undiscovered extensions of the Poplar Deposit. Using the Poplar as a model, LGM will search for similar deposits hidden under the glacial till. With the information obtained, LGM will determine targets for future drill programs as well as continuing to explore and develop the rest of the property.
