Adventure Gold Inc./Meunier-144 Deep Drilling Update, Timmins West, Ontario

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2011) - Adventure Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AGE) (the "Company")and RT Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RTM) ("RTM") are pleased to reporton the Meunier-144 property (the "Property") deep drilling program.The Property is contiguous to thewestern boundary of Lake Shore Gold's (TSX:LSG) ("LSG")Timmins Mine property located in the West Timmins area, Ontario. The current initial deep drill hole is ongoing and when completed is estimated to provide a deep cut on the projected target area at an approximate vertical depth of 2,400m (see figure 1 at www.adventure-gold.com). This will enable a series of shallower wedge cuts to obtain further details on shape and extent of major geological structures as well as potential mineralization. The initial deep hole was collared on LSG'sTimmins Mine property in August 2010 and is now about 2,600m in core length and with recent wedging appears to be on track to potentially hit the intended target by late October 2011.

This hole is targeting potential zones down plunge and on strike to mineralization at LSG's 100% owned Timmins Mine gold Deposit where LSG has previously announced intercepts of up to 13.6 g/t Au over 50.8m and 61.4 g/t Au over 15.0m (LSG –Press Release August 10, 2010) and where LSG has announced further drilling results relating to their Thunder Creek project, Rusk Zone, of up to 75.1 g/t Au over 18.6m (LSG - Press Release March 4, 2011).The Timmins Mine Deposit straddles a volcanic/sedimentary/ultramafic contact zone, within a folded sequence that plunges about 54 degrees to the west-northwest towards the Property.

LSG's Timmins Mine ore body has demonstrated vertical persistence as it can be traced down-plunge for a distance of approximately 1,500m from surface, and remains open at depth. Newly emerging and significant fold structures and complexities are now becoming apparent on the deepest sections of the Timmins Mine from LSG drilling. Overall, the gross geometry of the structure has remained consistent from surface to a 1,300m vertical depth and it is apparent that this geometry and structure continues to depth toward and potentially onto the Meunier-144 property.
