Zone Resources Inc. Reports Analyses from New Iron Zones on the Moore Property in the Labrador Trough of Northern Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2011) - Zone Resources Inc. (Zone) (TSX VENTURE:ZNR)(FRANKFURT:7ZR) is pleased to announce that the company has received analyses of grab samples from outcropping zones of iron formation on its Moore property. The previously unreported zones were disclosed in a news release dated August 31st, 2011. All the samples are grab samples and do not necessarily reflect the average grade of the zones from which they were taken.

On the Creek Zone, two grab samples of magnetite iron formation contained 35.48% and 41.96% Fe. Three samples of siderite/ankerite iron formation reported analyses of 23.71%, 16.83% and 24.78% Fe. Total thickness of iron formation in this zone appears to be approximately 160 metres.

A single composite grab sample from a zone of magnetite iron formation that appears to be 100 metres thick on the North Slope Zone returned an analysis of 36.38% Fe.

The Ross Mountain Zone exposes iron formation over a length of 3 kilometres, with a thickness of about 80 metres. A single grab sample of magnetite iron formation contained 36.42% Fe, and a grab sample of interbedded magnetite-siderite iron formation reported 37.45% Fe. Three samples of siderite/ankerite/dolomite iron formation gave analyses of 23.53%, 24.17% and 5.46% Fe.

Two samples of siderite iron formation from the North River Zone, that appears to be at least 95 metres thick, contained 15.24% and 27.60% Fe.

A single grab sample of magnetite iron formation from Zone A, a 34 meters wide zone, located in the northwestern part of the Moore property contained 36.13% Fe. This zone was not previously reported as it appeared to be relatively small and was visually estimated to be low grade.

It appears that previous work on the property, in the early 1950s, concentrated mainly on hematite zones, because all the high grade ("direct shipping ore" or "DSO") mineralization in the Labrador Trough comprised mainly hematite. At that time, iron ores that required beneficiation (usually referred to as "taconite") were not of interest. Now that world resources of DSO are being depleted and the price of iron is improving, the taconites are becoming economically important.

Analyses reported in this news release were performed by ActLabs of Ancaster, Ontario using X-Ray fluorescence analysis. Technical material in this news release has been reviewed by Mike Magrum, P.Eng., a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101. Estimated thicknesses of zones as quoted in this news release are base on dips measured on outcrops and have not been verified by drilling. All the analyses quoted in this news release were performed on grab samples and should not be taken as being representative of the zones from which they were collected.
