Queenston Closes $25,000,000 Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2011) - QUEENSTON MINING INC. (TSX:QMI)(FRANKFURT:QMI) ("the Company" or "Queenston") is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced private placement financing of 3,333,333 flow-through common shares at a price of $7.50 per share for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $25 million, which included the exercise in full of the over-allotment option.

Primary Capital Inc. acted as the agent in connection with the financing and was paid a cash commission equal to 6% of the gross proceeds. Dundee Securities Ltd., Stifel Nicolaus Canada Inc., Stonecap Securities Inc. and Cormark Securities Inc. were members of the selling group.

The Company now has cash of approximately $90 million. The proceeds from the financing will be used to continue exploration on its primary gold assets located in the Kirkland Lake gold camp, Ontario.

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.
