Hudson River Commences Drilling at Forge Lake


TORONTO, Nov. 17, 2011 /CNW/ - Hudson River Minerals Ltd. ("Hudson River") (TSX-V:HRM) is pleased to announce it has commenced drilling on its Forge Lake gold property located 32 km northeast of Wawa, Ontario and 14 km south of the Richmont Mines Island Gold Mine and Mill.

Approximately sixteen (16) diamond drillholes will be completed for a total meterage of 1.6 km. The drilling will help better establish the location of historic drillhole intersections reported by Amax Minerals Corporation ("AMC") in the early 1980s including 12.6 g/t Au over 4.0 m and 8.7 g/t Au over 5.0 m in two drillholes that were spaced 300 m apart.

The Forge Lake property contains a historic resource of 170,000 tons and was defined by Regnery Metals in 1940 and later reported by AMC in 1979. No grade was reported for this resource although 8,000 tons were mined in the early 1940s with a reported grade of 9.5 g/t Au.

The Forge Lake historical estimate is not compliant with current standards of mineral resource disclosure under National Instrument 43-101, therefore Hudson River advises that the historical estimate should not be relied upon. Alan Aubut P.Geo. (ON) is a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as defined in NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical content of this press release.
