TORONTO, Sept. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc.(TSX-V:LME) (Other OTC:LMEFF) ("Laurion") is pleased to announce the completion of the first three holes of the Company's 2010 planned reverse circulation ("RC") drilling program on Bell Mountain gold project, Churchill County, Nevada, USA. The 2010 drilling program is expected to consist of 52 holes ranging in depth from 100 feet to 350 feet for a total of approximately 11,600 feet.

Cynthia Le Sueur-Aquin, the President of Laurion announced, "The drilling of the first holes commenced on the north side of the Varga Zone and is designed to target the center of the body mineralization below deepest level. A second RC drill rig is expected to commence drilling early this week focusing on the Spurr and the Varga zones which have the best potential to increase gold-silver resources in order to generate a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate prior to year end."

The Corporation has filed a NI 43-101 technical report on SEDAR for the Bell Mountain Project confirming significant historical gold and silver resources. A comprehensive resource calculation (non NI 43-101 compliant) of 2.1 Mt @ 1.3 g/t gold and 37.6 g/t silver was reported on the Varga, Spurr, and Sphinx zones.

Dana Durgin (MSc, P.Geo), Laurion's Exploration Manager, is the Qualified Person responsible for the scientific and technical work (as defined under National Instrument 43-101) discussed in this press release, and has reviewed this press release.
