Excelsior Mining Corp.: Hydrology Tests Confirms Suitable Conditions for In-Situ Recovery at Gunnison Project

06.09.2011  |  DGAP
Excelsior Mining Corp. (TSX-V: MIN) (Frankfurt: 3XS) (OTCQX: EXMGF)
('Excelsior') is pleased to announce results from two comprehensive
hydrological tests conducted at the North Star Deposit. The results
generated hydrological conductivities in the range expected for a fractured
deposit and show the deposit is suitable for in-situ recovery (ISR). The
North Star Deposit is part of the Gunnison Copper Property located within
the copper porphyry belt in southern Arizona.

'We are very pleased with the results from this initial hydrological
testing. We have successfully achieved another milestone in demonstrating
suitable hydrological conditions for ISR at the North Star Deposit,' says
Stephen Twyerould, President and CEO of Excelsior. 'These results will be
combined with new metallurgical data to complete a Preliminary Economic
Assessment expected later this year. Further hydrological and metallurgical
testing will be carried out as we continue driving our Project towards

The North Star Deposit currently contains an indicated oxide copper
resource of 3.21 billion pounds (511 million tons at 0.31% copper) and an
additional inferred oxide copper resource of 0.88 billion pounds (159
million tons at 0.28% copper). For further details on the resource
estimate, please see the news release dated July 19, 2011.

Hydrology Details

Two hydrological tests were completed on holes NSH-01 and NHS-02 and
included pumping and injecting water to measure groundwater parameters,
extensive down hole geophysical logging, geological logging and assaying,
and advanced electrical geophysics. The two new tests complement previous
testing in the late 1990's by Magma Copper Corporation (BHP-Billiton). The
holes are all located in the central portion of the North Star Deposit.

Hydrological conductivities ('K values') are a measure of the efficiency
with which water moves through the rock and are measured as feet per day
(ft/d). NSH-01 had a K value of 0.08 ft/d measured over an interval of 394
feet (from 702 feet to 1,096 feet), representing the screened interval of
the hole. NSH-02 had a K value of 5.9 ft/d measured over an interval of 656
feet (from 608 feet to 1,264 feet). The average K value for the two holes
is approximately 2.9 ft/d. The K values achieved are entirely consistent
with K values from similar ISR projects.

Excelsior's hydrological testing was supervised by Michael W. Bostic, R.G.,
Principal Hydrogeologist from BasinWells Associates, PLLC and a Qualified
Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Bostic has reviewed and is responsible
for the technical information contained in this news release with respect
to the hydrology details. Excelsior's exploration work on the Gunnison
Property is supervised by Stephen Twyerould, Fellow of AUSIMM, President
and CEO of Excelsior and a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mr.
Twyerould has reviewed and verified the data disclosed in this news release
with respect to the resource estimate.
