STINA ANNOUNCES RESULTS FROM FIRST 2011 DRILL HOLE – DDH-11-06


Stina Resources Ltd. has released results from DDH-11-06, on its 100-per-cent-owned Dime property located 67 kilometres southwest of Dawson City in the South Klondike/White Gold district. This hole was drilled from the same drill pad as DDH-10-03 and DDH-10-04 in 2010 on the West anomaly, but at a steeper angle. The drill hole confirmed the presence of a steeply south-dipping east-west-trending structure with strong silicification, brecciation and pyrite-arsenopyrite sulphide mineralization. DDH-11-06 was drilled at an azimuth of 20 degrees and an angle of minus 80 degrees dip. The hole was drilled to a 245-metre (804 feet) depth.

Assay results are encouraging and confirm that the structure, silicification and brecciation are hosts to gold-bearing pyrite-arsenopyrite mineralization.

A rigorous quality assurance/control protocol has been put in place. Core samples were processed by Acme Analytical Laboratories 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 in-quart fire-assay fusion by ICP-ES methods and a 31-element ICP analysis are completed in Vancouver. Each batch of 36 sample 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 2011 holes will be released shortly after the data are compiled in the near future.
