Magino Drilling Expands Gold Zone in Main Deposit: 203 metres grading 1.27 gpt Au; Confirms Southwest Extension to Deposit
is pleased to announce that resource expansion and step out drilling at its Magino mine gold project in Ontario has intercepted significant gold mineralization in multiple areas:
* Within and adjacent to the main Magino gold resource,
* The southwest extension of the Magino deposit, and
* The Lovell Lake area 200 metres west of Magino deposit.
Prodigy completed 54 core drill holes totaling 18,077 metres (including condemnation drilling), augmenting and expanding the Magino gold resource potential.
Magino in-fill and resource expansion drilling:
Highlights include 203 metres grading 1.27 gpt gold in drill hole MA11-177 and 164 metres grading 1.09 gpt gold in drill hole MA11-136.These and other drill holes reported below document thick intervals ofgold mineralization that were not included in previous Magino gold resource estimates.Drill hole MA11-149 intercepted 19.0 metres grading 3.38 gpt gold starting at a vertical depth of 227.5 metres, contiguous to other high grade intercepts.Deeper, higher grade gold mineralization, documented in resource estimates, continues to be consistent in the Magino gold deposit.
About Prodigy Gold:
Prodigy Gold Inc. (PDG: TSX.V) is currently evaluating the development of the Magino mine gold project in Ontario as an open-pit mining opportunity with the potential for deeper, higher grade gold production. The Magino project contains Indicated gold resources of 2,176,000 ounces grading 1.00 gpt gold (67.6 million tonnes), and 1,721,000 ounces of Inferred gold resources grading 0.99 gpt gold (54.2 million tonnes) at a cut off grade of 0.35 gpt gold. A Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) shows a pre-tax NPV of $939 million and an IRR of 36% using a 5% discount rate for the project (see Press Release dated December 22, 2011) available on SEDAR or Prodigy's web site). The proposed operation would have total gold production of 2,614,000 ounces and an average annual gold output of 249,300 ounces a year during an eleven year project life.

Hana Mining Ltd.: Infill Drilling Encounters Some of the Best Intercepts of Copper-Silver Mineralization at the Banana Zone
is pleased to announce its most recent drilling results from the completion of 13 infill diamond drill holes in the Banana Zone at its Ghanzi sediment hosted Copper-Silver Project in Botswana.
Infill drilling was carried out on the Northeast Fold area (between sections 69725 to 70425 at the Northeast Fold; Figures 1 and 2) to convert a substantial amount of the NI 43-101 compliant resources within this area into the Indicated category from the Inferred category.
Highlights of recent drilling results:
The latest results demonstrate that Banana Zone contains areas which host high-grade copper-silver mineralization.
Core lengths intercepts of
7.62% CuEq(1) (5.11% Cu and 172.0 g/t Ag) over 5.3 metres within a wider mineralized interval of 3.77% CuEq(1) (2.71% Cu and 73.0 g/t Ag) over 14.6 metres in hole HA-465-D,
5.26% CuEq(1) (4.02% Cu and 85.0 g/t Ag) over 2.3 metres within a wider mineralized interval of 1.40% CuEq(1) (1.14% Cu and 18.0 g/t Ag) over 16.0 metres in hole HA-443-D,
4.93% CuEq(1) (4.86% Cu and 5.0 g/t Ag) over 2.5 metres in the footwall sandstones and 4.00% CuEq(1) (3.55% Cu and 31.0 g/t Ag) over 2.6 metres within a wider mineralized interval of 1.71% CuEq(1) (1.52% Cu and 13.0 g/t Ag) over 6.6 metres in the hanging wall in hole HA-457-D
4.00% CuEq(1) (3.53% Cu and 32.0 g/t Ag) over 2.8 metres in the footwall sandstones and 2.08% CuEq(1) (1.79% Cu and 20.0 g/t Ag) over 11.5 metres within a wider mineralized interval of 1.88% CuEq(1) (1.62% Cu and 18.0 g/t Ag) over 12.9 metres in the hanging wall in hole HA-447-D.
About Hana Mining's Ghanzi Copper-Silver Project in Botswana: The Ghanzi Project is located in the center of the Kalahari Copper Belt in northwestern Botswana. The Ghanzi property covers 2,149 square kilometres, and contains sediment-hosted copper-silver deposits with a demonstrated cumulative tested strike length of 70 kilometres. This favorable geology extends over an estimated strike length of 600 kilometres. Hana Mining released results of its most recent NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate for the Ghanzi Project on December 20, 2010, announcing an Indicated mineral resource of 585 million pounds of copper and 12 million ounces of silver from 19.7 million tonnes at a grade of 1.35% copper and 19.7 g/t silver. All of the Indicated resources are from the Banana Zone. There are also Inferred resources of 2.4 billion pounds of copper and 40.6 million ounces of silver from 91.2 million tonnes.

--Broad uranium intercepts returned include (metres downhole, U3O8 parts
per million, see Table 1 for reporting parameters):
- 58m @ 105ppm U3O8 from 38m
- 24m @ 171ppm U3O8 from 79m
- 14m @ 194ppm U3O8 from 212m
