Golden Hope Mines Announces Its Spring Drill Campaign

GNH: TSX Venture
GOLHF: OTCQX

TORONTO, May 19 /CNW/ - Golden Hope Mines (TSXV: GNH)(OTCQX: GOLHF) is pleased to announce an initial 2500 metre exploration diamond drill campaign on it Bellechasse-Timmins gold property in southeastern Quebec.

The company will drill a total of 7 holes. 5 holes will test the southwest extension of the T1 and T2 zones. There is limited historic and recent drilling that tests the southwestern extensions of these zones, most done prior to 1992. Two holes will be drilled between the T1 Zone and the newly discovered northeastern extension of the T1 Zone as announced in the May 18th, 2011 press release.

The initial exploration campaign will permit the company to continue its quest to significantly expand the known mineralized zones while it works towards completing its preparation of a definition drill campaign at T1 and T2.

On April 19, 2011, the company announced the engagement of SGS Canada Inc.-Geostat in order to help the company prepare a 3D block model. Once this model is completed, the company along with SGS will look to prepare a definition drill campaign on the T1 and T2 zones. The zones remain open on strike to the northeast, southwest and to depth.

The company will continue to use Forage Mercier Inc. of Val-d'Or, Quebec as its drill contractors.

A map of the drill holes can be found on the company's web site at www.goldenhopemines.com/exploration/bellechase_timmins_gold/ or may be obtained by contacting the company directly at 514-750-8218.
