Citadel Gold Mines Inc. completes airborne survey of Sudbury base metal property


    Citadel Gold Mines Inc. (the "Company") announces that it has acquired
472 line-kilometres of airborne time-domain electromagnetic and magnetic data
from an AeroTEM survey on the Massey property located near Elliot Lake,
Ontario, about 100 km west of Sudbury.
    The property, which is owned by Trelawney Resources Inc. (TRR-TSXV) and
optioned to the Company, consists of about 2,000 acres covering three former
copper-producing mines: the Massey mine, the Hermina number 1 mine, and the
Hermina number 3 mine.
    The survey outlined what appears to be a large gabbro unit striking
east-west as a prominent magnetic feature. The electromagnetic data was less
useful, as the AeroTEM system was strongly affected by power line noise. A
major power line runs sub-parallel to the area of interest.
    The Company contracted Balch Exploration Consulting Inc. to review the
AeroTEM data, to comment on the AeroTEM response near the power lines, and to
integrate the airborne data with the geological model.
    The Company has been advised that there is no indication of any large
shallow or deep conductive body based on the airborne survey results. Close to
the power line, results are inconclusive, as interference extends for a
distance of approximately 300 metres from the power lines. Flight lines over
known mineralization did not display significant anomalies, nor do they
suggest that the known occurrences have lateral extensions.
    This news release was reviewed and approved for technical disclosure by
Roy Rupert, P.Eng., Consulting Geologist, of Roy J. Rupert & Associates, an
independent qualified person under NI 43-101.
