REC Minerals Announces Staking of 10,240 Acre Area in Chapleau, Ontario Gold District

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - REC Minerals Corp. ("REC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:REC) is pleased to announce that it has successfully staked 256 claim units for a total of 10,240 acres in the vicinity of Probe Mines Limited's Borden Lake property. In November 2010, Probe Mines Limited announced a gold discovery at its Borden Lake property. The Company's newly-staked property (the "Borden Lake South Property") is 100% owned by REC and covers the central portion and eastern side of Borden Lake which is located 10 km east of the town of Chapleau in Northeastern Ontario. The Probe Mines Limited Borden Lake property is situated approximately two km north of REC's Borden Lake South Property.

The decision to stake these claim units near Chapleau, Ontario was made by REC based on its assessment of the Ontario Government's regional airborne magnetometer survey results over the area of interest in the context of the announcement by Probe Mines Limited of the gold discovery at its Borden Lake property, and a comparison of such airborne magnetometer survey results with similar public airborne magnetometer survey results available for the Timmins Gold Camp in Ontario.

REC is currently planning exploration of the Borden Lake South Property, including the contract of a high-resolution VTEM airborne survey in order to identify potential electromagnetic anomalies for a follow-up ground exploration program.

"We are very pleased with our acquisition of the Borden Lake South Property, which we hope will prove to be prospective for gold discovery", said Kabir Ahmed, Chairman, President and CEO of REC Minerals. "We look forward to completing the VTEM airborne survey by the end of this year so that we can have the Borden Lake South Property drill-ready for 2011."
