Lounor Starts Drill Program On The Matagami Gold Property

Listing (TSXV = LO Frankfurt = LE2A)

ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, March 4, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - LOUNOR EXPLORATION INC. is pleased to announce the start of a drill program on the Matagami Gold Property. The property is located in the Matagami mining camp and is comprised of 106 mining claims located in the Isle-Dieu Township, Province of Quebec, covering a total area of 1,632 hectares. The Matagami mining camp has a long history of producing base and precious metals with at least 15 mines to date (former and current producers).

The Matagami Gold Property is hosted by a gold bearing quartz-carbonate vein system. A VSM-type polymetallic occurrence is also present on the northern part of the property.

Polymetallic VMS Targets

Lounor's consultant geologist has discovered the existence and the location of five (5) historic shallow holes (less than 80 meters) that have returned Cu, Au, Ag, Zn values over width ranging from 5 meters to 9 meters. The values of these historic holes drilled in the 1960 ranged from 1.5% copper to 3.5% copper; gold values ranged from 1g/t to 3 g/t; silver values ranges from 1 g/t to 5 g/t and zinc values ranged from 1.5 % to 3%. Due to the significance of these results in relation to the current price of commodities, Lounor has decided to complete a follow-up exploration program.

Lounor completed a gravity survey, a ground electromagnetic survey (infiniTEM). Strong conductors were identified and coincide with gravity anomalies. The priority target will be drilled tested in the coming weeks.

Gold Targets

Geological and geophysical compilation report was completed by MRB and Associates, a geological consulting firm of Val-d'Or, from April 2012 to September 2012.  A prospection and trenching campaign was completed at the same time. Large areas of veins and veinlets were discovered. More detailed compilation assessment works are underway and are covering the area where is located the historical mineral inventory (Marcelle, Edith and Rolande historical veins). The compilation is realized on an area located 1.5 km south of the polymetallic targets. Lounor is planning to drill the low grade gold targets in the summer of 2013.
