VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jan 24, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --
Lions Gate Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: LGM) ("LGM" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the commencement the 5,200 meter diamond drill program at its 100% owned flagship Poplar Project. The drill program will test mineralization at depths up to 600m, based on results of the 2009 deep induced polarization ("IP") survey, as well as expanding the size of the Poplar Main Zone. The Company also plans to include these results in an updated, National Instruments 43-101 compliant resource expected in the first half of 2011.
The goal of the program will be to increase the size and grade of the published mineral resource at the Poplar Main Zone, and to test the depth extensions of the East Zone. The published resource is 236,000,000 tonnes at 0.37% copper equivalent grade using a 0.25% copper equivalent grade cutoff (House and Ainsworth, 1995 in CIM Special Volume 46). The estimate was made on behalf of Utah Mines Ltd. in 1982 based on approximately 17,000 metres of diamond drill data collected to that time. Equivalent grades for copper were calculated using 1982 prices for copper and molybdenum. This reserve estimate was prepared prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, and does not comply with that standard; nor does the term copper equivalent grade comply with that standard.
"The start of this drill program represents a significant milestone for Lions Gate Metals," says Arni Johannson, CEO and Chairman. "Developing the Poplar Project has always been a priority and we are extremely excited and optimistic that the results will indicate what we have always suspected; that the deposit is significantly larger and higher grade."
Lions Gate Metals Inc. is a Canadian based, junior resource company focused on the exploration, development, and acquisition of both advanced and early stage mineral projects. Lions Gate Metals owns 100 % of four substantial copper and molybdenum projects located in British Columbia. The management team understands the complex dynamics of the mining industry and has created a highly attractive corporate structure to maximize success.

Lions Gate Metals drills 147.88 m of 0.39% Cu at Poplar
2011-03-16 08:40 ET - News Release
Mr. Blair McIntyre reports
LIONS GATE METALS INC. SECOND HOLE AT POPLAR INCLUDES 148M OF 0.39% COPPER
Lions Gate Metals Inc. has provided the results of hole 11-PC-85, the second drill hole of its 2011 drilling program at the Poplar project, 35 kilometres from Imperial Metals' Huckleberry mine. The drill program is continuing and is expected to total approximately 5,000 metres.
The hole is mineralized over the entire length, and ended in mineralization. The mineralization remains open to depth. Results are as follows:
22.00 metres to 459.34 m (end of hole); 437.34 m at 0.24 per cent Cu, 0.07 gram per tonne (g/t) Au, 0.003 per cent Mo, including:
182.28 m to 459.34 m; 277.06 m at 0.34 per cent Cu, 0.10 g/t Au and 0.004 per cent Mo;
197.28 m to 345.16 m; 147.88 m at 0.39 per cent Cu, 0.12 g/t Au and 0.004 per cent Mo.
Hole 11-PC-85 was collared approximately 100 m northeast of hole PC-11-84, which returned comparable grades (see news in Stockwatch on March 7, 2011).
The 147.88 m interval grading 0.39 per cent copper and 0.12 g/t gold is similar in grade and geology to the intersection of 229.13 m grading 0.41 per cent copper and 0.12 g/t gold in hole 11-PC-84. These intersections, approximately 200 m apart, suggest that a previously unrecognized higher grade zone of mineralization may be present in the Poplar deposit. Additional diamond drilling is required to further define this zone.
Lions Gate management is highly encouraged by these results which will be used to prepare an NI 43-101 report which will be release after the completion of this drill program. Lions Gate is also encouraged by the potential for a higher grade zone within the Poplar deposit.
Lions Gate chief executive officer Arni Johannson stated: "This second drill hole, 100 metres from the first hole, shows that there is a significant new area of mineralization that has not been drilled and was not included in the historic resource. These results will guide further drilling to define as much of this new mineralization as possible."

Lions Gate Metals drills 0.41% Cu over 229 m at Poplar
2011-03-07 08:16 ET - News Release
Mr. Arni Johannson reports
LIONS GATE METALS INC. INTERSECTS 229M OF 0.41% COPPER AT POPLAR
Lions Gate Metals Inc. has released the results of the first drill hole of its 2011 drilling program at the Poplar project, 35 kilometres from Imperial Metals' Huckleberry mine. The drill program is continuing and is expected to total approximately 5,000 metres.
The first hole is mineralized over the entire length and ended in mineralization. The mineralization remains open to depth. Results are as follows:
25.99 metres to 465.11 m (end of hole); 439.11 m at 0.32 per cent Cu, 0.09 gram per tonne Au, 0.01 per cent Mo;
Including 89.75 m to 318.88 m; 229.13 m at 0.41 per cent Cu, 0.12 g/t Au, 0.01 per cent Mo; and 462.154 m to 465.10 m; 2.96 m at 1.29 per cent Cu, 0.29 g/t Au, less than 0.001 per cent Mo.
This sample has chalcopyrite-covered fractures and net-textured sulphides, in an intensely silicified rock unit. The hole ended in this style of mineralization. This is a new style of mineralization at Poplar, and the significance of this interval is not yet known.
Lions Gate management is highly encouraged by these results which will be used to prepare a 43-101 report which will be released after the completion of this drill program.
Lions Gate's chief executive officer, Arni Johannson, stated: "We are extremely pleased with these results that begin to provide us with the necessary data which will allow us to upgrade the historic non-43-101-compliant resource to the current standard. These results have confirmed the grades of historic drilling and have extended the mineralization to depth."

298m of 0.44% Copper Expands Higher Grade Zone at Poplar Project
Lions Gate Metals Inc.: 298m of 0.44% Copper Expands Higher Grade Zone at Poplar Project, BC 4/13/2011 12:14:45 PM - Market Wire
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Apr 13, 2011 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX News Network) --
Lions Gate Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: LGM) ("Lions Gate" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of Holes 11-PC-88 (Hole 5) and 11-PC-89 (Hole 6) of its 2011 drilling program at the 100% owned Poplar Project.
Hole 11-PC-88 was drilled at an azimuth of 0 degrees and at a -75 degrees inclination, and was collared approximately 200m south of Holes 11-PC-86 and 87 (News Release dated April 5, 2011). The hole is mineralized over the entire length, and ended in mineralization. The mineralization remains open to depth.
5.79m to 502.00m (End of Hole); 496.21m @ 0.35% Cu, 0.10 g/t Au, 0.015% Mo
23.79m to 322.00m; 298.21m @ 0.44% Cu, 0.13 g/t Au, 0.022% Mo
The 298.21m interval grading 0.44% Copper and 0.13 g/t Gold encountered in Hole 11-PC-88 is similar in grade and geology to the intersection of 220.95m grading 0.44% Copper and 0.11 g/t Gold in Hole 11-PC-86 (News Release dated April 5, 2011). This latest intersections has confirmed that a previously unrecognized higher grade zone of mineralization is present in the Poplar Deposit. It is significant that the higher grade zones in Holes 11-PC-86 and 88 starts at the overburden-bedrock interface, and are open in all directions. Additional diamond drilling is required to further define this zone.
Hole 11-PC-89 was collared approximately 200m northwest of Hole 11-PC-87, and was drilled at an azimuth of 270 degrees and at a -70 degrees inclination to a total depth of 401.42 m. Hole 11-PC-89 was mineralized throughout with the best interval assaying 0.16% Copper, 0.04 g/t Gold and 1.18 g/t Silver, over 126 m (from 7.92 m to 133.92 m).
Lions Gate management is highly encouraged by these results, which along with the balance of the 2010/2011 drill results will be used to prepare an updated NI 43-101 compliance resource estimate. The updated resource estimate will be released after the completion of the drill program. Lions Gate is also encouraged by the potential for a higher grade, near surface zone within the Poplar Deposit. The Company is well funded, having recently raised $6 million (News Releases dated March 4, 2011 and March 8, 2011), and will be planning a second phase of diamond drilling at Poplar when all the drill results have been received.
Lions Gate CEO Arni Johannson stated, "We are pleased that the drill results continue to expand the zone of higher grade mineralization within the previously defined Poplar deposit and look forward to receiving the balance of the results from the current drilling program."

Peter Ogryzlo, M.Sc., P.Geo., technical advisor to Lions Gate Metals states: "Diamond drill hole 11-PC-99 represents the longest continuously mineralized intersection from the Poplar Deposit since drilling began in 1974. The 0.74% copper equivalent grade over 179.17 metres is the highest grade intercept of this length reported from Poplar. The mineralization in this hole and in the lower portions of 11-PC-97 (See News Release dated December 6, 2011) have intersected a zone of high grade mineralization at depth which has not been previously tested. "
Copper Equivalent (Cu Eq) calculations were based on equivalency factors of CuEq% = Cu% x 1,, Au (CuEq%) = Au g/t x 0.57291667, Ag (CuEq%) = Ag g/t x0.01041667, and metal prices of Cu $2.80/lb, Mo $16.00/lb, Au $1100/troy oz., Ag $20/troy oz. The equivalency factor for molybdenum is Mo (CuEq%) = Mo% x 5.71428571 However, the molybdenum values intersected in 11-PC-104 may not be recoverable, and are not used in the calculation of copper equivalent grade. Metal recoveries are not used, as metallurgical studies are incomplete.
The 100% owned Poplar Project has a NI 43-101 compliant resource of 245 million tonnes grading 0.27% copper, containing 1.4 billion pounds of copper, at a 0.15% copper cut-off. This resource estimate was prepared by Giroux Consultants Limited (News Release dated August 23, 2011), and was based on 105 historical drill holes and 13 diamond drill holes, totaling 5,569m, completed by Lions Gate in the spring of 2011. The Phase 2 drill program will provide enough data for an estimate of gold and silver grades, in addition to copper and molybdenum grades. An updated resource estimate is anticipated in the spring of 2012when all results from the Phase 2 drilling have been received and compiled.
Completed a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource calculation. Completed over 16,000 metres of drilling at costs below $200 per metre. Improved our corporate governance practices to include a fully independent audit committee. Filed an Annual Information Form ("AIF") which will enhance capital market access. Negotiated Option to earn 75% of ROK-Coyote. Completed further exploration at ROK-Coyote and Poplar regional targets. 2012 Goals
Publish an updated National Instrument 43-101 Resource Estimate. Continue drilling to expand and enhance the Poplar Project. Continue exploration of the Polar Regional targets to include geophysics and drill targeting. Drill target location and possible drilling at ROK-Coyote.

Lions Gate Metals Files New NI43-101 Mineral Resource Update on Poplar Deposit to SEDAR; Plans Spring/Summer Drill Program to Further Expand Poplar & Regional Cu, Au and Ag Tonnage and Grade
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2012) - Lions Gate Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LGM) ("Lions Gate" or the "Company") is very pleased to announce the SEDAR filing today, of a new 2012 Mineral Resource Update NI43-101 Report (the "Report") for the Poplar Deposit. The 2012 Mineral Resource Update on the Poplar Deposit, Omenica Mining Division, British Columbia, dated March 30, 2012 and authored by G.H. Giroux, MASc., P. Eng., of Giroux Consultants Ltd., can be viewed in its entirety on SEDAR or downloaded from the Company's website.
The Report focuses on Lions Gate's Phase Two drilling program on the Poplar Property (the "Property"). Highlights of the Report include a marked increase in the size of the mineralized resource (contained copper metal increased by 47 percent), and the first inclusion of precious metals in estimation of the Poplar resource. At a 0.15% Cu cut-off, the Property has a new Indicated Resource of 171.3 million tonnes grading 0.28% Cu (1.06 billion pounds), 0.008% Mo, 0.08 g/t Au and 2.30 g/t Ag (0.40% CuEq), plus an Inferred Resource of 209.0 million tonnes grading 0.23% Cu (1.06 billion pounds), 0.004% Mo, 0.06 g/t Au and 3.62 g/t Ag (0.33% CuEq) as reported February 27, 2012. Sample density is now sufficient that a significant portion of the resource has been upgraded from the Inferred to Indicated category.
Recommendations from the Report include drilling of holes dedicated to collecting samples for metallurgical testing, and re-drilling of holes selected from the historical drilling to confirm copper and molybdenum grades. The re-drilled (or twinned) holes will also provide greater sample density for gold and silver analyses. Additional holes will also be dedicated to further upgrading of resources from Inferred to Indicated and Measured categories, and to expanding the deposit laterally and at depth. The goal of this work is to provide Lions Gate with a mineralized resource that may be converted into a reportable Mineral Reserve.
"Company geologists have steadily built the Poplar Resource over the past year. The increased drill density and the geological model have increased the resource both in size and grade, particularly through the construction of precious metal models, and in removal of dilution from the estimates," says Senior Technical Consultant, Peter L. Ogryzlo, M.Sc., P.Geo.
"The inclusion of gold and silver estimates in the resource is of sufficient importance to reclassify the deposit from a copper-molybdenum porphyry to a copper-gold-silver porphyry. In addition, by converting a portion of the resource into the Indicated category, the Company is now in a position to define a Mineral Reserve, as outlined in the proposed work program of the Report. Lions Gate hopes to increase confidence in their estimates by converting more of their Inferred Resources into Indicated and Measured. Metallurgical testing of the deposit beyond the historical work is also a necessary component in converting the Poplar Resource into a Mineral Reserve."
Company President and CEO, Paul Sarjeant, B.Sc., P.Geo., confirms that 2012 should be an exciting year for shareholders. "We are of course thrilled that the Report reflects our confidence in the Poplar deposit and its near and long-term potential. The untold chapters of the expansive 77,705 hectare Poplar story remain the eight other high-potential copper-gold porphyry regional targets on the Property. We are very anxious to get on the ground as early as possible this spring/summer to undertake early stage exploration on regional targets, culminating ultimately, in first pass drilling of the best targets. In addition, early this summer, we plan to undertake basic geological mapping, sampling and a deep IP geophysical survey on our 6,900 hectare ROK Coyote copper-gold project contiguous to Imperial Metals' Red Chris copper-gold property in northwest British Columbia. We hope to see diamond drilling there as well, before the snow comes."
The recommended $1.1 million Phase One (2012) Poplar Deposit program comprises metallurgical testing of the deposit and verification and upgrade of historic data by re-drilling 10 holes to 300 metre depths in the Main and East Zones. Subject to anticipated positive results, a Phase Two program of diamond drilling is recommended in follow-up. That program and associated funding requirements is outlined in the Report.
