Landore Resources Limited (AIM Ticker: LND.L) - Drilling Update - Junior
Lake-Lamaune Gold Prospect

THUNDER BAY, ON, May 4 /CNW/ -

    
    Highlights:

    -   Drilling continues to intersect widespread gold mineralization on the
        Junior Lake-Lamaune Gold Prospect including:

        25.50 metres @ 0.93g/t gold in drill-hole 1110-94 in the southern
        zone and

        0.5 metres @ 46.08g/t gold in drill-hole 1110-97 in the northern
        vein

    -   The southern zone of broad gold mineralization has now been
        intersected over 500 metres of strike, outcrops on surface and has
        been drilled to a depth of 200 metres. The gold mineralization is
        open to depth and along strike to the east and west.
    

The Junior Lake property:

The Junior Lake property, 100% owned by Landore, is located in the province of Ontario, Canada, approximately 235 kilometres north-northeast of Thunder Bay and is host to; the Lamaune Gold Prospect, the VW Nickel deposit, the B4-7 Nickel-copper deposit, the Lamaune Iron deposit and numerous other highly prospective mineral occurrences.

Lamaune Gold Prospect:

Drilling re-commenced on the Lamaune Gold Prospect in January 2010 and to date a further 41 drill-holes (1110-84 to 1110-130) have been completed for 6,082 metres.

Mineralized intersections not previously reported include:

The current campaign has confirmed the presence of gold mineralization with the identification of two distinct zones; a southern wide, low grade gold zone and a northern narrow, high grade zone containing significant gold intersections.

The southern broad zone of gold mineralization, frequently outcropping at surface, has now been intersected over 500 metres of strike and has been drilled to a depth of 200 metres. The zone remains open along strike in both directions and at depth. Gold mineralization is associated with quartz and quartz-carbonate veinlets, pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite in a silicified garnetiferous amphibolite host.

In addition, a high grade quartz vein has been intersected in close proximity to the above anomalous gold mineralization.

The mineralogy of the high grade quartz vein is simple and the gold occurs as 'native gold' with gangue of quartz, calcite and muscovite and sulphides, of arsenopyrite and pyrrhotite. Visible gold has been observed in 7 drill holes of the Lamaune Gold prospect.

Recent drill results continue to be encouraging. Drilling is ongoing and further results are pending.

Metallurgical studies have commenced to determine the amenability of the low grade gold mineralization to heap leaching and the high grade gold mineralization to gravity separation. Both are simple and low capital cost extraction methods and could be advanced to production in a relatively short time period.

Landore is also initiating an independent study to determine the work required to advance the Lamaune Gold prospect to resource status.
