Northair Intersects 765 g/t Silver over 6.5 Metres at La Cigarra Project, Mexico

High Grade Mineralization Confirmed at North End of San Gregorio Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") is pleased to announce drill results from nine core holes at the San Gregorio Zone and two core holes at the Las Carolinas Zone completed on its La Cigarra silver project ("Property") located in north central Mexico.

"We continue to be extremely pleased with the drill results from the Property," said Fred Hewett, President and CEO of Northair. "The 765 g/t silver intersection from hole CC-12-135 in the San Gregorio Zone is the highest silver grade (over widths greater than 5 metres), reported to date. These results, combined with previous drilling, indicate that a high grade silver zone is being delineated in the northern half of San Gregorio. This higher grade zone currently has a strike of 300 metres and remains open with significant opportunity to expand with further drilling."

Drilling Discussion

San Gregorio Zone:

Four (4) holes, CC-12-131, 133, 135 and 138 were completed in the northern half of the San Gregorio Zone to test for a northern continuation of mineralization previously encountered in holes CC-11-026 and CC-12-083 on sections 0+00 and 0+50S, respectively.


--  On section 1+00N, hole CC-12-131 intersected 13.9 metres grading 83.7
    g/t silver and extended the silver mineralization down dip from CRC-01-
    010. The zone can now be traced over 320 metres below surface.
      
--  On section 1+50N, hole CC-12-138 intersected 24.2 metres grading 150.9
    g/t silver and extended the silver mineralization 90 meters down dip
    from CC-12-085. The zone can now be traced at least 320 metres from
    surface.
      
--  On section 2+00N, hole CC-12-135 intersected 6.5 metres grading 765.0
    g/t silver, 13.10 metres grading 32.2 g/t silver, 8.00 metres grading
    178.0 g/t silver and extended the silver mineralization 100 metres down
    dip from CC-12-088. The zone on this section can now be traced at least
    300 metres down dip from surface.
      
--  On section 4+00N, hole CC-12-133 intersected 2.9 metres grading 195.9
    g/t silver and 21.2 metres grading 61.5 g/t silver and extended the
    silver mineralization 90 metres down dip from CC-11-047. The zone can
    now be traced at least 180 metres from surface.

In addition, holes CC-12-136 & CC-12-137 were positioned in the central part of the San Gregorio Zone to test the down dip continuation of the zone on sections 0+00 and 0+50S where mineralization was open to depth. Both holes intersected only narrow mineralized intervals and it now appears that the down dip continuation of the wider mineralized interval is truncated by a west dipping fault.

In the southern proportion of the San Gregorio Zone two holes were drilled on section 4+50S up dip of CC-11-044 to establish the thickness of the zone towards the surface. Hole CC-12-129 showed that mineralization extends 70 metres up dip from CC-11-044. Hole CC-12-130 failed to intersect significant mineralization and is believed to have been collared in the footwall of the zone, indicating controls to mineralization here are steeper than predicted.

Las Carolinas Zone:

Two holes were drilled at Las Carolinas to provide infill data.


--  On section 1+00N, hole CC-12-139 was positioned to test the down dip
    projection of a higher grade zone identified on sections 1+00N and
    1+50N. CC-12-139 intercepted 43.9 metres grading 49.6 g/t silver
    including 9.90 metres grading 173.1 g/t silver. This hole extended
    silver mineralization 80 metres down dip from CC-12-104, which reported
    66.8 metres grading 80.2 g/t silver. The silver zone here can now be
    traced at least 240 metres below surface.
      
--  On section 4+00N, hole CC-12-134 was designed to test the down dip
    extension of CC-12-102. CC-12-134, returned 1.0 metre grading 229.1 g/t
    silver, 1.7 metres grading 20.3 g/t silver and 30.65 metres grading 23.4
    g/t silver. These results indicate that the mineralized system here
    shows no sign of weakening at depth.

2012 Drilling Notes

Data collected from all drill campaigns within the Las Carolinas and San Gregorio area has defined a mineralized system measuring 2.4 kilometres in length and open. This data will be used to calculate the Property's initial NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate due in Q1 2013.

To date, Northair has released the results of all 139 core holes completed on the Property. Since the first drill program was initiated on the property in 2010, the Company has completed 23,876 meters of drilling in 15 reverse circulation holes and 139 HQ sized core holes.

Additional drilling is anticipated in Q2 2013 to further explore the La Cigarra Resource area, which remains open in all directions; and to test district targets recently generated from the Company's ongoing field programs.

Sampling and QA/QC

All technical information for the La Cigarra exploration program is obtained and reported under a formal quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program. Samples are taken under the direction of qualified geologists and stored in sealed bags. Samples are delivered by the Company via courier to ALS Minerals ("ALS") in Chihuahua and Inspectorate America Corporation ("Inspectorate") in Durango City. In both cases the samples are dried, crushed and pulverized with the pulps being sent airfreight for analysis by ALS to Vancouver B.C. and by Inspectorate to Vancouver B.C. or Reno, Nevada. Systematic assaying of standards and blanks are performed for precision and accuracy. Analysis for silver, zinc, lead and copper and related trace elements was done by ICP four acid digestion, with gold analysis by 30 gram fire assay with an AA finish.

About the La Cigarra Silver Project

The La Cigarra Project is located in the state of Chihuahua along the eastern fringes of the Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico. Local topography is gentle with good road access to the major city of Parral, located 26 kilometres to the southeast. The 32,064 hectare property position controls an emerging mineral district with permissive geology and numerous historical mine workings. Of potential economic significance is the San Gregorio/Las Carolinas area, currently defined by drilling over a strike length measuring 2.4 kilometres. Over the short term the Company's objectives include the completion of its initial resource study and the definition of additional drill targets for testing in the upcoming field season.
