Dumont starts metals recovery testwork and files independent corroboration for its NI-43-101 technical report, Alberta polymetallic black shale properties

    DUMONT NICKEL INC. (DNI : TSX-Ven, DG7 : Frankfurt)

    TORONTO, June 11 /CNW/ - Dumont Nickel Inc. (DNI:TSX-Ven, DG7:FSE) is
pleased to announce that it has commenced an extensive sampling and
metallurgical testwork program to establish optimum recovery parameters for
the recovery of metals from its Alberta polymetallic black shale Properties.
    This work will expand on preliminary historic testwork which demonstrated
that metals can be recovered from the shales. The historic work reported
recoveries of 97% Ni, 100% Zn, 33% V, from simple leaching tests, and
successfully leached gold by conventional cyanidation. The historic work also
demonstrated that base metals and gold can be collected in gravity
    As previously announced, Dumont's 2,536 square kilometer Alberta land
position overlies large tonnages of polymetallic black shales which are
mineralized with Mo, Ni, U, V, Zn, Cu, Co, Ag and Gold, described in greater
detail in Dumont's Technical Report for the Properties (available from SEDAR
and from www.dumontnickel.com).
    The current work program will initially rely on samples from previously
archived third-party drill core footages from the Buckton and Asphalt
Potential Mineral Deposits, and will focus on the Buckton Potential Mineral
Deposit which comprises 1.2-1.3 billion short tons extending over 26 square
kilometers and which is open in three directions. Intentions are to augment
the available samples with additional material to be collected via trenching
during the current field season, from strategic localities based on historic
work and based on other work recently completed by Dumont.
    Dumont also announces that third-party independent review of its
NI-43-101 Technical Report for its Alberta properties has been completed, and
that a confirmatory opinion letter corroborating the report has been filed to
SEDAR as an addendum to the Technical Report which was filed to SEDAR in
November, 2008.

    that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts
    responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
