St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd.: Mineralized Zones Discovered on the Isoukustouc Property on the Quebec North-Shore

BAIE-COMEAU, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2011) - St-Georges Platinum and Base Metals Ltd. (CNSX:SX)(OTCQX:SXOOF)(BERLIN:85G) is pleased to provide an update on the first phase of its 2011-2012 drilling campaign on the Isoukustouc property located 74 km north of the city of Baie-Comeau, Quebec North Shore.

The program is aimed at discovering Nickel-Copper-Cobalt and Platinum Group Elements (PGE) mineralization associated with mid-Proterozoic mafic-ultramafic intrusive rocks at the contact with metasedimentary rocks (paragneiss and metaquartzite) and quartzofeldspathic gneiss. To date, 2,100 meters of drill core are already completed and are available for logging and assaying.

Preliminary description of the core indicates several shallow depth mineralized intersections in metagabbros and metasediments that varies in size between 20 to 50 meters (65 to 165 feet). The mineralization consists of semi-massive, pod-like, disseminated or thin foliated zones of pyrhottite-pyrite±chalcopyrite±pentlandite as showed in the picture below.

The first assay results are expected in late January or early February 2011.
