ABOUT RADISSON MINING RESOURCES:
Radisson is a Quebec-based mineral exploration company. Radisson's main asset, the O'Brien/Kewagama project is located on the Cadillac Break, 5 km west of the Lapa gold mine and approximately 4 km southeast of the LaRonde mine, both owned by Agnico-Eagle.
The project hosts the O'Brien Mine, which is considered the highest grade gold producer of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt (production of 1,302,000 tons at 0.448 oz/t from 1932 to 1955).
The Company's exploration work on the project has confirmed the presence of 218,540 ounces of gold (indicated resource) (based on an indicated resource of 270,000 tons at an uncut grade of 0.56 oz/ton and an inferred resource of 182,000 tons at an uncut grade of 0.37 ounces) as defined in the Scott Wilson RPA NI 43-101 report of May 2007. These resources, all outlined above the 650-metre level, are located about 800 metres east of the old O'Brien mine workings, and represent a new discovery of high grade mineralization of the same type mined and produced at the O'Brien gold mine. These resources are in a gold zone referred to as Zone 36.
In 2011 and 2012, the Company carried out two diamond drilling programs, resulting in new discoveries in the largely unexplored eastern portion of the project (Kewagama) and further definition of the eastern extension of Zone 36 mineralisation.
