Henry East Lens Confirmed at Depth with 376 g/t Ag, 1.4 g/t Au, 1.8% Pb and 3.1% Zn over 3.0m

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- Puma Exploration (TSX VENTURE:PUM) announces the results of the two (2) deep holes drilled at Henry East Lens confirming the high grade silver and gold content of the mineralized lens at depth with the intercept of 376 g/t Ag, 1.4 g/t Au, 1.8% Pb and 3.1% Zn over 3.0 meters within a thicker zone of 280 g/t Ag, 1.03 g/t Au, 1.4 % Pb and 2.3% Zn over 4.0 meters in hole FH12-12.

The holes, for a total of 710 meters drilled, targeted the Henry East lens at about 200 meters vertical and were designed to conduct borehole geophysical surveys aiming to identify thicker and/or more conductive zones of the lens. Both holes succeeded to confirm the continuity of the mineralization at depth and the sulphide content of the EM-1 geophysical anomaly.

Highlights include:

- Drill intersection of 376 g/t Ag, 1.4 g/t Au, 1.8% Pb and 3.1% Zn over 3.0 meters within a thicker zone of 280 g/t Ag, 1.03 g/t Au, 1.4 % Pb and 2.3% Zn over 4.0 meters in hole FH12-12.

- Drill intersection of 405 g/t Ag and 0.32 g/t Au over 2.1 meters in hole FH12-13;

- Persistant mineralization at depth with the intercept of semi-massive to massive sulphide lens varying from 3-9 meters at about 200 meters deep in both holes;

- Confirmation that the 1.2 kilometers long EM-1 geophysical anomaly is caused by sulphide mineralization;

"We are very pleased with the results of the deep holes at Henry East Lens. Both holes confirmed the continuity of the mineralization at depth. It also proves that the 1.2 kilometers long EM-1 geophysical anomaly is caused by sulphide mineralization. With the borehole geophysical survey underway, we will be able to drill test thicker and/or more conductive zones of the Henry East lens" Note Marcel Robillard, President of Puma Exploration.

(i) Holes released 05/12/2012

Hole FH12-12 was collared in the same section (SL26) of holes FH12-04 and FH12-10 which intersected respectively 9.1 meters of 92 g/t Ag, 1.06 g/t Au and 6.3 meters of 121 g/t Ag and 1.17 g/t Au. These three holes together confirm the depth extent and the continuity of the high grade silver and gold mineralized lens at depth.

Hole FH12-13 was collared to test the depth extend of hole FH15-05 which intersected 4.4 meters of 454 g/t Ag and 2.3 g/t Au but deviated from original direction and intersected the Henry East lens below lower grade holes FH12-02 and FH12-06. These holes intersected respectively 1.8 meters of 42 g/t Ag and 0.73 g/t Au and 7.0 meters of 55 g/t Ag and 0.53 g/t Au. Once again the continuity of the mineralization has been proven and similar grade were intersected from surface to 200 meters deep.

The Henry East Lens outcrops on surface as a semi-massive to massive sulphide zone varying in thickness from 0.5 meters to 5 meters. The mineralization zone is interpreted to be the surface expression of the EM-1 geophysical anomaly detected during the 2011 winter survey (see press release 19/05/2011). The EM-1 geophysical anomaly shows a long trend extending more than 1.2 km, from Henry Lens to TR11-24, open-ended to the west and located along the Rocky-Brook-Millstream fault.

The Rocky-Brook-Millstream fault controls the mineralisation for the Hache, Shaft and Pinetree lenses. All these mineralised lenses carry significant gold and silver enrichment. More than 100 holes were drilled at Hache lens since 2006 and defined a continuous mineralization zone over a strike length of 700 meters and to a depth of 350 meters so far.

Nicholas-Denys 2012 Exploration Program

Puma Exploration has conducted extensive exploration program at Nicholas-Denys in 2012. So far, 22 holes for 3,970 meters of drilling. 25 trenches for 3,100 meters of trenching and stripping of about 9,600 m2 were directed on the two main structures which are the Rocky-Brook-Millstream and Main Fault Zones. Currently borehole geophysical survey is underway into the deep holes to detect thicker and/or more conductive zones of the lens.

The 2012 exploration results indicated that the Nicholas-Denys property contains a significant silver-gold mineralization system that is open for extension. The area explored to date represents only 20% of the total length of the favourable corridor which extends over more than 10 km. The discovery of new silver-gold structures and lenses along the Rocky-Brook-Millstream Fault and the northern second main fault represent a key step toward the definition of an economic deposit.
