MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 05/23/12 -- Golden Share Mining Corporation ("Golden Share" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:GSH) is pleased to provide the results of its recent eight hole, second pass drilling program totalling 1,203 m and executed on the Band Ore Main target of its Shebandowan Gold Project ("SGP") located in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.
- The IP anomalies identified during Golden Share's recent geophysical survey have tested positive for gold mineralization.
- These IP anomalies are located in the volcanic rocks hosting the Main Zone porphyry and the recent results confirm the presence of gold in the surrounding lithologies :
- Eastern Main South Zone / IP # 3 (west extension of 17.85 g/t Au over 2.70 m in BO-11-01) :
-- BO-12-10 : 7.21 g/t Au over 2.00 m from 48.00 to 50.00 m (550 m west of BO-11-01) -- BO-12-08 : 1.38 g/t Au over 1.00 m from 36.85 to 37.85 m (1,000 m west of BO-11-01)
- Upper Main North Zone / IP # 2 :
-- BO-12-12 : 1.74 g/t Au over 1.00 m from 89.60 to 90.60 m -- BO-12-13 : 2.93 g/t Au over 1.00 m from 127.35 to 128.35 m

President and Chief Executive Officer Philippe Giaro commented:
"We are pleased with this second pass drilling program which confirms our model of several sub parallel zones on the Band Ore Main target which was historically modelled as a single mineralized zone with historical resources of 155,600 ounces of gold (705,790 tonnes at 6.86 g/t Au(i)). The clear confirmation that the mineralization now runs outside the main porphyry well into the surrounding volcanics is encouraging. We have resumed our work program and will be following up on these recent drilling results with geological mapping and prospecting to further define the trends and refine the next set of drill targets".
About the drilling program
The drilling is performed at high angle to the mineralized structures and the above intersections represent near true widths. Individual samples weighting 3kg on average have been taken from sawn half core at +/- 1 meter intervals in the mineralized zones with consideration of the geological contacts. A rigorous QA/QC program involves the random inclusion of mineralized standards, duplicates and blanks at the sample collection and preparation stage. The samples are shipped to the ALS laboratory in Thunder Bay, Ontario, for analysis by fire assay on 50g pulp samples. The sample preparation procedure involves the crushing of the entire 3kg sample followed by quartering to obtain a representative 250g sample which is entirely pulverized and out of which a 50g sample is isolated for analysis by fire assay. Samples suspected to contain visible gold or higher grade mineralization are assayed using the metallic sieve technique on a 1000g sample.
About the Shebandowan Gold Project (SGP)
The SGP is located 90 km west of Thunder Bay, north-western Ontario, in the Rainy River - Atikokan - Shebandowan emerging gold province where Osisko Mining Corporation is currently developing the 10.52 M oz Au Hammond Reef gold deposit 100 km to the West of the Company's project. The SGP is serviced by a railroad line, a high tension power line and the Trans-Canada highway all providing excellent infrastructure to the project.
Following completion of the recent transaction with Lake Shore Gold Corp. for the acquisition of the Band Ore property, Golden Share controls 22 km of strike length along the northern part of the Shebandowan belt highlighted by two advanced gold targets :
-- Pistol Lake JF's West zone : 150,699 oz Au Inferred Resource (2,857,200 MT @ 1.64 g/t Au at 1.00 g/t Au cut off / NI 43-101 compliant). -- Band Ore deposit : 251,271 oz Au in historical resources(i) within two principal zones (705,790 tonnes at a grade of 6.86 g/t Au in the Main Zone and 616,000 tonnes at a grade of 4.83 g/t Au in the # 4 zone).
