Stina Resources Ltd. has released results from three additional holes drilled on the East anomaly on its 100-per-cent-owned Dime property located 67 kilometres southwest of Dawson City in the South Klondike/White Gold district. DDH-11-09, DDH-11-11 and DDH-11-12 were drilled off the same pad located on trench 15, which returned a five-metre section of 1.049 grams per tonne gold from surface sampling. The holes were collared approximately 30 metres back of the anomalous trench sample. The East anomaly is 2.5 kilometres east of the West anomaly, and was located using auger soil sampling and trenching.

Drill and assay results indicate a northwest-southeast-trending zone of gold mineralization. As with the West anomaly, mineralization is associated with silicified zones and with quartz sulphide veins in a cupola zone at the top of a mafic-poor intrusion. Mineral zones contain elevated pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralization. Drill result highlights are listed in the attached table.

DDH-11-12 intersected a quartz sulphide vein at 144 metres that returned the 5.67 g/t Au result and numerous sections of lower grades of 0.1 g/t Au to 0.5 g/t Au. Additional results from the East anomaly will be released shortly.

A rigorous quality assurance/quality control protocol has been put in place. Acme Analytical Laboratories processed core samples at facilities in Dawson and Whitehorse, Yukon. A one-kilogram split is crushed to 80 per cent passing 10 mesh. A second 250-gram split is pulverized to 85 per cent passing 200 mesh. A 30-gram silver-inquart fire assay fusion by ICP-ES methods and a 31-element ICP analysis are completed in Vancouver. Each batch of 36 samples included standards, blanks and duplicates.

R. Allan Doherty, PGeo, is a qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101, and has reviewed and approved this news release.

Results for additional holes will be released shortly after the data are compiled.
