LAURION Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX.V: LME) (OTCPINK: LMEFF) (“LAURION” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Jean-Philippe Paiement P.Geo MSc, as Technical Advisor – Exploration Geology to the Corporation.

Cynthia Le Sueur-Aquin , President and CEO of the Company, commented: ” We are proud and excited to have Jean-Philippe join the Laurion Mineral Exploration Team as Technical Advisor.  LAURION has been working with Mira Geoscience, of whom Jean- Philippe is also the Director of Global Consulting.  Mira’s directive was to conduct a “full integration” of LAURION’s data to develop an integrated 3D model from which a mineralization’s genetic and exploration model can be derived. Our collective objective is to generate a multi-parameter platform to produce a high-level targeting approach with the objective to identify the larger scale ore-forming mineralizing system. Using Ishkoday’s substantial surface exposure and information as springboard the model will enable LAURION to connect the current exploration targets over a 6 km strike length corridor with a width of 1.5 km, and to unlock value to LAURION shareholders.  LAURION’S advancements with database construction in combination with Mira’s most advanced geological and geophysical modelling will provide a competitive advantage to strategically allocate resources to high priority drill targets.  We believe Jean-Philippe as technical advisor will bring huge value to Ishkoday with his extensive experience and success in exploration discovery, with focus to rapid resource expansion, in conjunction with his key role at Mira.

The Corporation is a junior mineral exploration and development company listed on the TSX-V under the symbol LME and on the OTCPINK under the symbol LMEFF. The Corporation currently has 202,684,319 outstanding shares, of which approximately 72% 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 recently acquired Brenbar Property, which is contiguous with the Ishkoday Property, hosts the historic Brenbar Mine and LAURION believes that the mineralization to be a direct extension of mineralization from the Ishkoday Property.
