North American Gem Inc. Prepares to Fly an Electromagnetic Survey Over Selected Targets in the Tobin Lake Region

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - April 21, 2009) - North American Gem Inc. (TSX-V: NAG) (the "Company") is pleased to confirm that the Company has made plans to fly a Full Spectrum Time-Domain Airborne Electromagnetic Survey (EM Survey) over selected targets. The EM Survey will have a focus on the Tobin Lake area and the area to the south of the Goldsource Mines Inc. discovery zone. Experts in the field of Airborne Electromagnetic Surveys have confirmed to North American Gem management the potential for airborne data in this particular region, that this is a new viable method for selecting for coal occurrences within the Manville formation.

The Company anticipates mobilization cost will be reduced in the region as other Companies have also confirmed their willingness to conduct airborne surveys in the near future. The Company is also well into the drill permitting process for several project areas within the Manville formation, in particular the two project areas over which the EM survey will be conducted. The Company anticipates having the drill permits completed before the EM data has been analyzed which will allow the Company to begin drilling once targets have been identified.

The Company has been granted 757 Coal Prospecting Permits covering an area of 1,436,500 acres (581,376 hectares) that have been approved by Saskatchewan Energy and Resources. The Company acknowledges that this land package will require a few phases of airborne study to cover the entire area of interest.

The Company would also like to confirm that Silver Fields Resources and WestCan Uranium Corp., the Operator on Township 55-07-02, continue the drill permitting process in Saskatchewan. Township 55-07-02 consists of 12 Coal Prospecting Permits (CPP) totaling 23,040 acres to the northeast of Tobin Lake.

North American Gem Inc. has engaged Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. (Dahrouge) of Edmonton, Alberta, to complete the permitting process on its behalf. Dahrouge has significant experience in exploring for, and developing deposits of thermal coal within the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.
