Logan Completes 2011 Work Program at Shell Creek

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2011) - Logan Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LGR) ("Logan") is pleased to announce the successful completion of its 2011 exploration program on the Shell Creek Property, located in the northern Dawson Ranges of the Yukon Territory of Canada. This year's program, which consisted of the collection of 4,447 soil, 99 rock and 43 silt samples, in addition to geological mapping and reconnaissance scale prospecting, was successful in identifying a number of copper, as well as lead-zinc anomalies, reinforcing the existing dataset for the property. All of the data collected to date are currently being reviewed in order to assess the next stage of exploration and, specifically, to determine if follow-up via diamond drilling is warranted.

Anomalous copper, as well as lead-zinc, values were identified in a number of soil samples collected adjacent to the copper in soil anomaly previously identified on the property. These prospective target areas display a rough parallelism to the underlying stratigraphy. Two base metal anomalies, identified via soil sampling, are each approximately 1,100 metres in length, range in width from 100 to 400 metres, and returned Pb values between 16 ppm to 164 ppm and Zn values ranging from 94 ppm to 635 ppm.

Results from the rock samples collected to investigate banded iron formation grades on the property ranged from 32% to 56% Fe2O3, with up to 3.5% MgO, 1% MnO, 1.75% P2O5, 0.5% TiO2 and negligible gold values.

A map presenting the property geology, as well as the soil geochemistry anomalies can be found on the Logan website at: http://www.loganresources.ca/images/Projects/ShellCreek/shellcreekgeologygeochemistrymap.pdf.

The Shell Creek Property is located roughly 75 kilometres (km) northwest of Dawson City. It lies along the edge of the Tintina fault and is situated on the largest gravity anomaly in the Yukon. The property is underlain by clastic, carbonate, a banded iron formation and volcaniclastic rocks and hosts multiple gold and copper soil anomalies, in some cases coincident. In several instances, these anomalies occur on four consecutive 250 metre spaced lines for a strike length of approximately 1 km. Previous work has focused on several potential styles of mineralization including saddle reef style gold mineralization, IOCG, red-bed copper and Algoma style banded iron formation.

The field component of this program was carried out by Equity Exploration Consultants Ltd. of Vancouver, BC, an independent contractor. All samples were analysed by Acme Laboratories Ltd., of Vancouver, BC, an independent contractor.
