TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2011) - QUEENSTON MINING INC. (TSX:QMI)(FRANKFURT:QMI) ("the Company" or "Queenston") announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Primary Capital Inc., as lead agent and including Dundee Securities Ltd., Stifel Nicolaus Canada Inc. and Stonecap Securities (collectively, the "Agents") in connection with the offering of 3 million "flow-through shares" of Queenston at a price of $7.50 per share for gross proceeds of $22,500,000.

Queenston is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company with a primary focus on its holdings in the historic Kirkland Lake gold camp that comprises 230 km². Late in 2010 the Company entered into a strategic alliance with Agnico-Eagle Mines Limited with the objective of advancing its key, 100% owned gold projects (Upper Beaver, Upper Canada, McBean, Anoki and Bidgood) at the Kirkland East project towards feasibility and ultimately production. The Company is completing a fiscal 2011 exploration budget of $25 million and intends to maintain this level of expenditure in 2012.
