Nuinsco Purchases Trend Mining's Royalty on Diabase Peninsula Property

Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or the "Company") (TSX:NWI) ( today announced that it has acquired the royalty held by Trend Mining Company ("Trend") on the Diabase Peninsula property for a onetime $15,000 cash payment. As a result of this transaction, Trend has no remaining interest whatsoever in Nuinsco's Diabase Peninsula property.

Trend acquired a royalty equal to 3% of the net value of all mineral products produced from the Diabase Peninsula Property under an option/joint venture agreement dated December 5, 2004. The purchase of the Trend royalty follows an agreement with Dr. Lloyd Clark (see release of June 12, 2012) to extend the deadline for the Company's option to acquire certain claims in the Diabase Peninsula area (the "Extension"). The Extension is warranted because of the continued excellent results that indicate that the rocks underlying the property has been the subject of a uranium mineralizing event capable of causing the formation of uranium bearing zones. With the Trend royalty now extinguished the Diabase Peninsula property becomes more valuable to Nuinsco.

Through a succession of exploration programs at Diabase Peninsula, a host of elements indicative of a uranium mineralizing event have been identified in an environment that has been structurally prepared to host uranium deposits. Widespread anomalous uranium mineralization peaking at 707 parts-per-million (ppm) uranium (U) has been measured over kilometres of strike length along the regionally significant Cable Bay Shear Zone that underlies the entire length of the property providing indication of the pervasive and substantial mineralizing event that affected the rocks in the area.

The 21,959 hectare Diabase Peninsula Project is located approximately five kilometres north of the southern boundary of the Athabasca Basin. It encompasses a 35 km strike length above the regional-scale Cable Bay Shear Zone deformation zone in the basement rock units below the basin sandstone.
