LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: LME) (OTCPINK: LMEFF) is pleased to announce assay results for three new diamond drill holes testing the continuity at depth of the northeastern portion of the A-Zone. The A-Zone is located along the 6 km long Au-Zn-Cu-Ag mineralized trend at the Corporation’s Ishkoday Project, located near Beardmore, Ontario.
The current assay results have demonstrated that the northeastern part of the A-Zone gold- and zinc-rich synvolcanic mineralization extends to depth over more than 240 m vertical. The drilling also identified a new mineralized structure, associated with the Bezhik shear zone, bordering the northeastern edge of the A-Zone.
The depth extension of the A-Zone returned the following highlights (see table for full results):
The new mineralized structure in association with the Bezhik shear returned the following highlights:
This new mineralized area is open to the southwest and the A-Zone remains open at depth. The extensions are further tested by LBX22-077, LBX22-078, LBX22-079 and LBX22-080 (assay pending).

Sampling Analysis and Laboratory
Samples from the 2022 drilling were cut and sent for analysis. Preparation and analysis were completed at the Actlabs (ISO 9001:2015) laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Actlabs is an internationally recognized laboratory that provides geochemical sample preparation, analytical procedures and data management solutions.
LAURION uses a quality assurance/quality control program that monitors the chain of custody of samples and includes the insertion of blanks (5% of the announced results), duplicates (3% of the announced results) and standard reference material (5% of the announced results) in each batch of samples sent for analysis. Drill core is photographed, logged and cut in half, with one half retained in a secured location for verification purposes and one half shipped for analysis.
The entire sample is crushed to 80% passing 2 mm and a riffle split of 250 grams is taken and pulverized to 95% passing 105 µm (RX1). Samples are analyzed by four-acid digestion/ICP-MS package for 36 elements (1F2). Additionally, samples are analyzed for Au using a firing assay from a 50-gram pulp (1A2B-50). Overlimit samples values for zinc (>1%) and Pb (>0.5%) are re-assayed using a four-acid digestion overlimit method with ICP-AES 9 (8-4 Acid over limit).
No QA/QC issues were noted with the results reported herein.

About LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc.
The Corporation is a junior mineral exploration and development company listed on the TSXV under the symbol LME and on the OTCPINK under the symbol LMEFF. The Corporation currently has 252,384,022 outstanding shares, of which approximately 81% of LAURION’s issued and outstanding shares are owned and controlled by Insiders who are eligible investors under the “Friends and Family” categories.
LAURION’s emphasis is on the development of its flagship project, the 100% owned mid-stage 47 km2 Ishkoday Project, and its gold-silver and gold-rich polymetallic mineralization with a significant upside potential. The mineralization on Ishkoday is open at depth beyond the current core-drilling limit of -200 m from surface, based on the historical mining to a -685 m depth, in the past producing Sturgeon River Mine. The Brenbar Property, which was acquired in 2020 and is contiguous with the Ishkoday Property, hosts the historic Brenbar Mine. LAURION believes the mineralization to be a direct extension of mineralization from the Ishkoday Property.
