Radisson Mining Resources Inc.: Immediate Start of a
Diamond Drilling Progam on the O'Brien/Kewagama Site

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 28, 2005) - Radisson Mining
Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RDS) is pleased to announce the start of a
diamond drilling exploration program on its O'Brien and Kewagama
properties located in Cadillac Township in the Abitibi region.

The 2005 program will verify the zone located between zone 36 E and the
Kewagama hole (drillhole KW04-03: 5.45 g/t Au / 8.17 m), between 1500
feet (460 m) and 2000 feet of depth (600 m) with the main objective of
defining a sufficient resource to warrant an underground bulk sample.

Highlights of the 2004 drilling program

The results of the 2004 program on the property have confirmed that the
O'Brien Mine structures extend beyond the previously mined veins. The
gold-bearing horizon is now known over more than 3 kilometres on the
O'Brien/Kewagama site, thus allowing a significant increase in the
potential for new resource discovery in the project.
