VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) - Premium Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PEM) ("Premium" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has received gross proceeds of $2,143,500 from the exercise of 7,145,000 warrants.

"The warrant exercise completes the funding for the $7,000,000, Phase-Four Exploration Program, which includes the first district-wide +25,000 meter drill program along the Idaho Gold Project" stated President Del Steiner.

"Two drills are active, utilizing Premium's "Proven Exploration Strategy" to discover multiple near-surface gold resources along the +30 km trend, and ultimately developing this emerging gold district in Idaho."

The proceeds from the warrant exercise will supplement the Company's current working capital position and will be used to fund exploration work on Premium's flagship property, the Idaho Gold Project.
