Laurion Commences Drilling on the Bell Mountain to Expand Mineralization on the Sphinx Zone

TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: LME) (OTCQX: LMEFF) ("Laurion" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that Major Drilling of Salt Lake City, Utah have mobilized their drill onto the Bell Mountain property, and that drilling has commenced.

The drill program is composed of 1,219.2m (4,000ft.) of reverse circulation drilling ("RC"). Approximately 823m (2,700ft.) will be completed on the Sphinx Zone. Historic sampling indicates that the Sphinx Zone is approximately 300m (1,000ft.) along strike and up to 24m (75ft.) in maximum width. The Sphinx Zone dips approximately 60 degrees to the south-west and thus drilling could contribute significantly to the resource totals. The remaining RC drill holes will be on the west-facing slope of the Varga Zone.

The Bell Mountain is a gold/silver project located in the south-eastern part of Churchill County in west-central Nevada (USA). The Property is located approximately 82 road kilometres south-east of Fallon and 102 air kilometres south-east of Reno, Nevada.
