McLaren Summer 2012 Drilling Update on the TimGinn Property Timmins, Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2012) - McLaren Resources Inc. ("McLaren") (CNSX:MCL)(FRANKFURT:3ML) is pleased to provide an update on the Summer 2012 exploration program at the TimGinn Property located on strike and adjacent to the Goldcorp owned Hollinger/McIntyre mine complex that has produced over 30m oz of gold to date.

The Summer 2012 exploration drilling program consisted of seven drill holes with a total of 1,453 metres. Drill core has been logged and samples are being prepared and shipped to the Lab. Results are anticipated in mid September. The Program is following up on the positive results of McLaren's initial drill program in February 2012 which included 7.4 gpt over 7.0m, 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 during the period of 1929 to 1937 where underground production occurred to a depth of 500 feet.

The TimGinn property contains a 2,000 metre mineralized strike length running from North East to South West. 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. The property has seen limited exploration at shallow depths and is virtually unexplored below 900 feet. Adjacent neighbouring properties have produced significant quantities of gold to depths exceeding 6,000 feet.
