Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSXV: LME) (OTC-PINK: LMEFF) ("LAURION" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has commenced this 2021 season's 10,000m diamond drill hole program at its flagship property, Ishkoday, located in the Onaman -Tashota Greenstone Belt, 28km northeast of Beardmore Ontario.

Diamond Drill Program

The objective of this initial 10,000m drilling campaign is the definition of the mineralized system which comprises the 2020 Niish discovery and the A-Zone (Behzik structure). Early results at the Niish structure in drill holes LME20-031which intercepted 70.65 m of 3.90 g/t Au, 6.46 g/t Ag, 0.25 % Cu, 0.40 % Zn from 325 - 423.25 m ; and LME20-030 which intercepted 18.50 m of 0.18 g/t Au, 14.64 g/t Ag, 0.21% Cu and 3.69% Zn from 141.50 -160.00 m , showed the encouraging potential of this mineralized structure.

The Niish and the Behzik shear zones are part of a set of third order parallel structures, delineating the southern and northern contact of an interpreted (from drilling and geophysics) dioritic intrusive plug. In addition to these two (2) parallel structures, a number of EW and NS mineralized subsidiary structures and veins have been identified through past surface exploration and drilling (See Figure 1 ).  Both the Niish and Behzik structures are interpreted as the major fluid conduits bounded by the diorite contact and S2 foliation. This dilatational zone and the presence competent Fe-rich rocks represents a major mineralized zone characterized by numerous sets of organized veins.

The planned drill holes will be investigating the geometry and grade distribution of the greater Niish and Behzik zone while also aiming at defining the mineralized veins system comprised between them. A total of 8 holes varying from 650 to 750 metres in depth have been planned as part of this initial drilling campaign.

This new litho-structural interpretation opens significant potential for the exploration of Au-rich orogenic type mineralization at the A-Zone. "I am most pleased that the Laurion team together with geological experts at Mira Geoscience were able to integrate all the available data at Ishkoday, including more than 40 years of exploration historical data, to generate a global understanding of the A-Zone mineralization. This bodes well for greater exploration success in building mineralization volume at Ishkoday," stated Cynthia Le Sueur-Aquin , President and CEO of LAURION.

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 212,045 common shares of the Corporation, exercisable on or before April 13, 2026 at an exercise price of $0.23 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.

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 209,752,480 outstanding shares, of which approximately 73% 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-rich polymetallic mineralization with a significant upside potential. The mineralization on Ishkoday is open at depth beyond the current core-drilling limit of -200m from surface, based on the historical mining to a -685 m depth, in the past producing Sturgeon River Mine. The recently acquired Brenbar Property, which is contiguous with the Ishkoday Property, hosts the historic Brenbar Mine.

Frank Holmes: Gold Advice as Price Falls — Buy the Dip and

The gold price has tumbled since last week's US Federal Reserve meeting, which saw the central bank raise rates by 50 basis points for the first time since 2000 in an effort to combat inflation.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Frank Holmes, CEO and chief investment officer at US Global Investors (NASDAQ:GROW), pointed out that the yellow metal's decline is a buying opportunity.

"Buy the dip and hold on for dear life, as the crypto kids say — HODL," he said. HODL is a term that originated in the cryptocurrency community, although it’s since gained mainstream usage through popular memes.
