Otish Energy Begins Pre-Drilling Exploration Work on Noyelles Gold Property, Abitibi Area, Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2010) - Otish Energy Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OEI) is beginning exploration work on its 100% interest Noyelles Property comprising 66 mineral claims in the Noyelles and Bruneau Townships, Abitibi Area of Quebec.

The Noyelles Property covers approximately 3,697 hectares and is located roughly 60 kilometres northwest of the town of Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Quebec. Several logging roads transect the Property providing an excellent access. The Property lies within the Casa Berardi – Cameron deformation corridor that hosts several orebodies and gold deposits, notably the Casa Berardi gold mine with over 5 M ounces of gold and the Discovery deposit with more than 500,000 ounces of gold. The Property is located approximately 20 kilometres from the Discovery deposit.

The Property geology consists of mafic volcanic rocks of the Taïbi Group that is in contact with miscellaneous sedimentary rocks that include sandstones, conglomerates, siltstones, mudstones, tuf and iron formations.

This pre-drilling exploration work first consists of a structural interpretation of the Noyelles Property in order to characterize and accurately position meaningful structural features such as deformation zones, fault systems and other related elements.

Second, all available data relevant to the Noyelles Property from the government assessment files will be compiled including geophysical surveys. The emphasis will be put to precisely map possible extensions of the Casa Berardi and Discovery gold horizons on Noyelles. Data integration will generate and prioritize identified drill targets.

The Company plans a diamond drill campaign in May or June of 2010 to follow-up on selected identified targets.

About Otish Energy : The Company explores for gold, unconformity-type uranium deposits, both above and below the basin unconformity and for Rare Earth Elements.
