Richmond Minerals Inc. Exploration Update

TSX Venture: RMD

TORONTO, April 13 /CNW/ - Richmond Minerals Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its exploration programme on the Hallé Township, Québec property (the "Property"), a joint venture project with Fort Chimo Minerals (CNQ: FORT).

Line cutting by Long Point First Nation has now been completed and detailed ground electromagnetic and magnetic surveys are underway. It is anticipated that diamond drilling will begin in the first week of May.

As described in previous news releases, two strongly magnetic and highly conductive Fugro GEOTEM airborne anomalies were identified on the Property. Anomaly 1, located along the central eastern property boundary is approximately 1.3 kilometers in length. Anomaly 2, located in the north central portion of the Property, is approximately 4.5 kilometers in length. Grab samples collected from surface along the axis of these conductors returned values exceeding 1 % nickel, with anomalous values for copper, gold and chromium. A review of historical assessment files indicates no definitive historical exploration work in the target area.

The Company is engaged in base and precious metal mining and related activities, including exploration and development in Northern Ontario and Québec.
