    Issued and Outstanding 32,325,776 Common Shares

    TORONTO, April 12 /CNW/ - Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (LME-TSXV) is
pleased to announce the drilling results from the recent phase eight
exploration program on the Davidson-Tisdale Property, Timmins, Ontario. The
program commenced in January 2007 and was completed in February. Drilling was
conducted on both the Main Zone and the adjacent S-Zone. Seven holes were
drilled and eight holes re-entered and deepened during this eighth phase of
the Vedron Gold Inc. work commitment on the Davidson-Tisdale Property which
consisted of a total 2,451 metres drilled.
    Exploration drilling was designed to test for the east extension of a
gold bearing quartz vein zone below a depth of 600 feet (200 metres) within
the Main Zone alteration package. The eastern extension of the quartz vein was
intersected but failed to return gold assays. One hole intersected a favorable
result below the target of 12.86 gram per tonne over 1.2 metres. Drilling was
also conducted at the S-Zone where six holes of infill drilling totaling
1176 metres were completed of which three intersected significant
mineralization. Drilling at the S-Zone was conducted to test the margins of a
proposed chute of higher grade gold mineralization delineated in historic
drilling on the large S-Zone structure. Anomalous gold results were
intersected and are set out in the table below.
    The following table summarizes the highlights of assay results of the
January - February 2007, 2,451 metre drill program.

    All exploration work on the Davidson-Tisdale was conducted under Kenneth
Guy, P. Geo., designated Qualified Person for Vedron Gold. Gold analyses of
samples collected by Vedron were conducted by Laboratoire Expert in
Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. Analyses consisted of a fire assay of a 30-gram sample
with an atomic absorption finish. Samples assaying over 1.0 gram per tonne Au
are re-assayed with gravimetric finish. Samples noted to contain visible gold
are analysed via the total metallic assay method. A rigorous Quality Control
and Assurance program (QC/QA) is in place, using control samples such as
Blanks and Rocklabs Standards and duplicate checks. In addition, duplicate
analyses of 10% of the samples were corroborated by check assays on sample
pulps performed by Bourlamaque Laboratory of Val D'Or, Quebec.
    Vedron reported that it had received key PTTW (Permit To Take Water)
permits that are required to commence operations from the Ministry of the
Environment for the Davidson-Tisdale property.
