LION ONE CONTINUES TO EXTEND MINERALIZATION ALONG MURAU LODES AT TUVATU GOLD PROJECT, FIJI
Vancouver, B.C., September 20, 2012. Lion One Metals Limited (TSX-V: LIO) (OTCQX: LOMLF) (FSE: LY1) (the “Company” or “Lion One”) is pleased to report complete assay results for the third drill hole from its diamond drilling program at the Tuvatu Gold Project on the island of Viti Levu in Fiji. See Table 1 below for complete results.
The results continue to confirm the lateral continuity of the Murau Lodes, with this third hole collared near the intersection of the east-west trending Murau Lodes with the north-south trending Upper Ridges Lodes. The mineralization and geologic units intercepted in this hole are consistent with interceptions of bonanza grades over significant widths encountered in the first two holes of the program. These holes were collared 80 meters to the east, along strike of the most recently completed drill hole, TUDDH349. The bonanza grades in the Murau Lodes lie within structural zones associated with the Viti Levu Lineament and are consistent with dilation zones in Riedel Shears. More than 1,400 structural measurements have been taken by Company’s geological team and structural interpretation is ongoing.
Notable intersections include 11.77 g/t gold over 1.83 meters (true width) from 128.55 meters depth in the Murau 2 Lode. Extensions of these lodes have been mapped at surface along strike up to 1,330 meters to the west of the Tuvatu resource area. See the map below and the Company’s news releases dated May 7, 2012 and September 6, 2012 for reference.
Assays are pending for results from three other completed holes, including two holes drilled near the Tuvatu portal that tested extensions of the north-south trending UR lodes. A second drill rig has been mobilized to the Tuvatu property. Lion One is targeting the western extensions of the Murau lodes and the northern extensions of the UR lodes in an effort to significantly expand the current resource base at Tuvatu.

Technical Information and Qualified Persons
The assay analyses performed during Lion One’s drilling programs are subject to a formal quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program. Diamond drill core was logged and sampled on site at Tuvatu by Company staff with samples delivered by the Company to the facilities of Australian Laboratory Services (ALS) Pty. Ltd., an independent accredited analytical laboratory. Samples are first prepared and crushed at the ALS facility in Suva, Fiji, before being shipped to Brisbane, Australia for assay analysis. Samples are subjected to fire assay with atomic absorption finish for gold and 33 elements, four acids, and Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry (ICP-AES).
Standard reference materials, blanks, and field duplicates samples are inserted prior to shipment from site to monitor the quality control of the data. Samples with higher grade gold (greater than 3 grams per tonne) are reassayed using a gravimetric and/or pulps and metallic procedure. The Company’s exploration team planned and executed the 2012 drilling program under the supervision of Lion One’s Vice President of Exploration, Mr. David Pals. The content of this news release has been reviewed by Mr. Darcy Krohman, P.Geo, a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
