McLaren Drilling Includes 7.41 Grams Gold Over 3.2 Metres at TimGinn

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 3, 2012) - McLaren Resources Inc. ("McLaren") (CNSX:MCL)(FRANKFURT:3ML) is pleased to announce the results of the recently completed 8 hole 1,453 metres exploration drill program including 8.21 grams over 2.5 metres and 7.41 grams over 3.2 metres. The TimGinn Property is located adjacent to the Goldcorp owned Hollinger and McIntyre Mines which have produced over 30 million oz of Gold to date in Timmins.

Results from the summer drill program follow up on the positive results of McLaren's initial drill program previously announced on February 13, 2012 which included 7.4 gpt over 7.0 m, 24.2 gpt over 1.1 m and 6.0 gpt over 3.0 m between surface and a depth of 500 feet. The focus of the exploration drilling is to further expand the gold mineralized zones along strike and to depth in the area of historic production that took place from 1929 to 1937 where underground production occurred to a depth of 900 feet. The exploration holes intercepted mineralization at down hole depths ranging from 30 to 150 metres.

The TimGinn property contains a 2,000 metre mineralized strike length running from northeast to southwest. Mining has occurred on three sides of the property at neighbouring mines including the Hollinger Mine and the McIntyre Mine that are situated in central Timmins and have produced gold to depths exceeding 5000 feet (1500 metres). The property has seen limited exploration at shallow depths and is virtually unexplored below 900 feet.
