    Issued and Outstanding 32,325,776 Common Shares

    TORONTO, April 16 /CNW/ - Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSXV: LME)
(the "Corporation") today reported that a drill rig has broken ground at the
Enid-Massey Project where 1,290 metres of diamond drilling is planned.
    Cynthia Le Sueur-Aquin, President and CEO of Laurion Mineral Exploration
commented, "The Enid-Massey is located in an unexplored part of Timmins, and
this area contains many as yet untested conductors, showing a good potential
for VMS Cu-Ni-PGE and possibly gold mineralization. The Santrap Grid is just
one of the many grids which hosts a large cluster of untested airborne
conductors, of which the eastern grid tested in the Phase 1 drill program
confirmed strong VMS-type mineralization with attractive Cu, Zn, Au and Ag
values."

    Enid Massey VMS Project
    Santrap Grid
    Phase 2 drilling will consist of approximately 11 NQ diamond drill holes,
totalling 1,290 metres. Phase 1 drill results, conducted on the Santrap Grid
in December, 2006, indicated that the thickness and concentration of copper
and zinc bearing massive sulphides increase with depth, and towards the west.
A recently completed spectral I.P. (Induced Polarization) survey extended the
I.P. anomalies in Phase 1 westward and confirmed 3 additional conductors which
had been located in the immediate vicinity by Laurion's helicopter EM survey
carried out during June, 2006.
    Additional targets for drill testing have been identified on the
Enid-Massey Project as a result of the airborne surveys completed over the
Corporation's entire 99 sq. kilometres land package located 40 kilometres west
of Timmins, Ontario. Geological environments suggest that these targets hold
potential for VMS (copper, zinc, gold, silver) and copper-nickel-PGE
mineralization.

    Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. is an early stage exploration specialist
company with projects in Timmins, Ontario. Laurion's exploration horizons
encompass not only gold, but also base metals and PGE's.
