Oromin Explorations Ltd.: OJVG Gold Project-Q3 Exploration Outlook

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 20, 2011) - Oromin Explorations Ltd. (TSX:OLE)(OTCBB:OLEPF) ("Oromin"), on behalf of Oromin Joint Venture Group Ltd. ("OJVG"), is pleased to announce it's proposed exploration program for the third calendar quarter of 2011 for its OJVG Gold Project (the "Project") in Sénégal. The Q3 program will continue to be dominated by exploration drilling employing three full-time core drilling rigs. We expect to carry out approximately 13,000 metres of new core drilling in approximately 60 holes, as part of a USD$6 million budget for the quarter, funded equally by Oromin and its joint venture partner, Bendon International Ltd. This is an aggressive drill program given that it will take place during the annual rainy season.

OJVG's recent focus has been targeting the expansion of established deposits by conducting wide-spaced deep drilling beneath existing resources at the Masato and Golouma deposits towards delineating down-dip and down-plunge extensions to outlined gold zones. Oromin will continue this program of successful wide-spaced step-out drilling, while concurrently undertaking initial and follow-up drilling of a number of new gold targets and recent discoveries.

The strategic objectives of the Q3 exploration program are to identify and outline potential new resources and expand the extent of mineralized volumes at more than a dozen drill targets, most of which are relatively less-explored zones.
