November 28, 2012 - Lakeland Resources Inc. (TSXv: LK) (FSE: 6LL) (the "Company" or "Lakeland") is pleased to announce the commencement of exploration drilling on the Kam Copper Property located near Iron Bridge, Ontario.
A diamond drilling program of a minimum of 500 metres is planned as a first phase of exploration drilling on the project. The drill program is being conducted to verify historical results from drilling carried out in the 1930s. Seven grab samples were taken from historic trenches along the strike of the Copper Prince vein on the Kam Property and copper values of 0.366% Cu to 7.14% Cu were recovered. In addition, anomalous gold values were detected in three of the samples with the highest value being 0.495 g/t Au.
The Kam Property consists of one claim (9 units) encompassing approximately 128 hectares and is contiguous to the west of the former producing Copper Prince Mine where a non-compliant 43-101 resource of 50,000 tonnes of 3% copper is reported. This is a historical resource not compliant to NI 43-101. There was no review of the methods of calculating this resource. The Company believes the Kam Property includes the westerly extension of the historically mined Copper Prince vein which appears to have a strike length of some 300 metres exposed in historic trenches where it disappears under thicker overburden.
The Phase I drilling program is expected to take approximately 10-14 days to complete. Drill core will be saw cut and shipped to an accredited laboratory for testing and assays will be released upon receipt in their entirety.
The independent Qualified Person responsible for the review and approval of the technical material presented in this news release is Mr. Garry Clark (P. GEO), a Director of Lakeland. Mr. Clark is an independent Qualified Person as defined by Canada’s NI 43-101.
