Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSXV: LME) (OTC-PINK: LMEFF) ("LAURION" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it will commence drilling on January 14, 2022 at its Ishkoday project, located 220 km northeast of Thunder Bay, Ontario near the town of Beardmore .

Highlights:

  • 15,000-metre drilling program to define the continuity of the Ishkoday mineralized system from the CRK to A zones, extending over 1.4 km strike length.
  • Diamond drilling will commence at the A zone to follow up on the southeast extension of gold and base metal-rich mineralized zones intersected in 2020 with 10.34 m @ 3.22 g/t Au in Hole LBX20-002 and 63.93 m @ 0.58 g/t Au, 6.10 g/t Ag, 0.11% Cu and 1.92% Zn in Hole LBX20-003 (see May 29, 2020 news release). Winter conditions and freezing will permit access to this area, located in a swamp.
  • Following completion of this drilling target, the drill will be moved to the CRK zone to follow up on the high-grade gold Joe structure: Hole LME20-025 intersected in 2020, 14.25 m @ 10.98 g/t Au, including 1 m @ 152 g/t Au (see December 1, 2020 news release).
  • Drilling program will also test areas with strong density of lineaments identified by a 2021 LiDAR survey, where minimal drilling and exploration were previously completed.

A compilation and integration of all historical and recent datasets is currently underway for planning the 2022 summer exploration program along the 6 km long Ishkoday mineralized trend and within several mineralized areas, located outside the main mineralized trend, highlighted by the 2021 LiDAR survey and historic work.

LAURION is fully funded for the 2022 exploration program.

Issuance of Performance Incentive Stock Options

The Corporation also wishes to announce that it has granted to each of John Covello and Nick Ierfino incentive stock options (" Options ") to acquire 29,000 common shares of the Corporation, exercisable on or before January 11, 2027 at an exercise price of $0.82 per share, subject to vesting requirements. These Options are part of a discretionary performance bonus awarded to Mr. Covello and Mr. Ierfino (who are both directors of the Corporation) in recognition of their significant contributions to the Corporation's capital raising initiatives.

The issuance of Options, as contemplated in this news release, is subject to the terms of the Corporation's stock option plan and TSX Venture Exchange (" TSXV ") approval.

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 247,167,449 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 km 2 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.

Finlay Minerals drills 76.57m @ 0.45% copper, 14.6g/t silver, and 0.14g/t gold  in the Gaul Zone on the Silver Hope Property

Finlay Minerals drills 76.57m @ 0.45% copper, 14.6g/t silver, and 0.14g/t gold in the Gaul Zone on the Silver Hope Property

Finlay Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: FYL) (" Finlay " or the " Company ") is pleased to announce the results of its 1,968 metres (m), nine hole, oriented-core drill program completed in November, 2021 on its Silver Hope Property.  The Silver Hope property is located approximately 70 kilometres (km) southeast of Houston, BC and surrounds Newmont Corporation's former Equity Silver Mine.

Aimed at outlining shallow zones of open-pit copper-silver-gold (Cu-Ag-Au) mineralization, the program targeted Gaul, Superstition and Hope mineralized zones along with the Main Trend, which has the potential to host significant Cu-Ag-Au mineralization. The 2021 drill holes span a strike distance of over 1,750 m , within three distinct mineralized zones which are offset and truncated by cross-structures. Specifically, the Gaul Zone hosts significant copper with appreciable silver and gold grades that could be extracted by open pit methods. The Gaul Zone remains open along trend to the south, north, and at depth and has been drill tested for a strike length of 400m and a vertical depth of 100m . Within the Superstition and Hope Zones, the 2021 drilling intersected several narrower mineralized intervals.  However, historical drilling shows the potential for thicker mineralized intercepts at depth, suggesting that the northern zones may have formed higher up in the mineralizing system than in the Gaul. Potential remains to demonstrate continuity between the Superstition and Gaul Zones.
