TORONTO - March 21, 2012 - Laurion Mineral Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: LME) and (OTCQX: LMEFF) ("Laurion" or the "Corporation"), is pleased to announce that it has retained First Canadian Capital Corp. ("First Canadian") as a consultant to provide strategic marketing and investor relations services.
First Canadian will introduce the Corporation to private investors, analysts, brokers, money managers and other financial professionals, and will generate market awareness for both the Bell Mountain and Sturgeon River projects, as well as the commencement of Laurion's drill program comprised of twinning, infill and extensional exploration drilling in the Beaurox A-Zone. Drilling will be carried out with the goal of bringing the Sturgeon River/Beaurox A-Zone Target Deposit of 4.0 to 6.0 million tonnes of 1.5 to 3.0 g/t gold, 20 to 30 g/t silver, 2.5 to 3.5% zinc, and 0.25 to 0.50% copper to a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate, based on its own and the historical drilling information which suggests a combined strike length of 6,000 metres for three zones of sulphides. It is expected that this program will take approximately six months to complete. This work will be followed with grid drilling along the Tehya-Ahki zone with sufficient drill spacing to allow this area to advance to NI 43-101 resource estimation.
The reader should be cautioned that the potential quantities and grades reflected above are conceptual in nature, that there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
Under the terms of the agreement with First Canadian (the "Agreement"), Laurion will pay First Canadian $6,000 per month for a twelve month initial term (with a right of termination by either party after six months) and grant 400,000 stock options for a period of one year at an exercise price of $0.10 per share, with vesting in accordance with the Agreement, TSX Venture Exchange policies and the company's stock option plan. Kindly note that the Agreement and related stock option issuance remain subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
Cynthia Le Sueur-Aquin, President and CEO of Laurion commented, "We are pleased to retain First Canadian, an IR firm with a very successful track record in providing investor relations services to emerging small-cap and mid-tier companies in Canada.

In particular, we wish to highlight Laurion's undervalued quality assets and significant growth potential on both the Sturgeon River and Bell Mountain projects.
