DRILLING CONFIRMS PORPHYRY AT SILVER QUEEN

December 8, 2011 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA –New Nadina Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE: NNA) expects to release the 2011 recent discovery drill core assay results during the week of Dec 12, 2011. The half century search has revealed the potential for a significant size copper, molybdenum, gold porphyry deposit (Target Titan B) at the Silver Queen property. The property was last in production by the Bradina JV in the 1970’s on the No 3 Vein system. The property is strategically located at Owen Lake, south of Houston BC on the Owen/Morice road which continues to Huckleberry mine.  The property surface is privately owned with established onsite facilities.

The discovery deposit lies within a geophysical anomaly that extends 950 meters north-south and is open to the north and south.  Additional geophysical anomalies lie nearby to the west of the drilled targets.  The 2011 drilling within this anomaly trend is open in all directions. An image of “Target B” overlain on the Google Earth image is available on the Company website. Drilling as well as new geophysical lines to the north and south will be necessary to increase the size. The depth extent of the deposit is also unknown.  The geophysical data does not close off the anomaly at depth.  Drill hole 11S-13 ended in good mineralization at 777m. Diamond drilling will continue in 2012 as well as further geophysics. Casing from the deepest hole (11S-13 – 777m) remains intact for re-entry.

All results should be received from the lab early the week of Dec 12th and we expect to report drill hole assay results once compiled. There were 810 samples from 2,035 meters of sawn drill core from the porphyry discovery sent for analyses.

The bulk tonnage deposit, named “Itsit” is no longer just a vision or a dream but a reality.  This hidden bulk tonnage porphyry was first sought after in the ‘60’s by Kennco.  The search for the elusive source of the 20 plus vein system that encompass our property has been vindicated. Attempts to locate the porphyry system by Kennco in the 1960s were unsuccessful.  Advances in geophysics since that time have made this discovery possible.  Intensive study and the combined use of Geotech’s ZTEM airborne and Quantec’s Titan 24 DCIP and MT ground geophysics with expert geophysical interpretation provided the necessary information to target and drill this mineralized body. 

The key to our success is determination and utilization of the most sophisticated current geophysical techniques offered to today’s mineral explorer. The Itsit discovery gives us further reason to expand our 2012 geophysical lines to first further define the target extent of this large anomaly as well as find additional targets. Porphyry deposits are known to form in clusters and we feel the Silver Queen property potential for more is high.  Porphyries are generally low grade and contain considerable volume to provide a long mine life. Current metal prices remain high and information on monetary value and historical price ranges can be found on the internet. 

The Company also wishes to advise that the 750,000 share warrants with expiry dates of October 29, 2011 have been issued. There was $75,000 realized from this exercise of which an insider participated for 250,000 shares.

New Nadina drilling update at Silver Queen

September 21, 2011 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA –New Nadina Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE: NNA) announces two drills are testing Titan A and B targets at the Silver Queen property.

Significant stockwork and porphyry-style mineralization of unknown grade was encountered in two holes (11S-01, 11S-03) on the first setup testing the eastern side of Target B (porphyry target). The first hole drilling east at -80 dip ended at 572m and the second drilling west at a -75 dip terminated at 288m. Both holes were in the zone and terminated before planned depth due to drilling difficulties. This drill has moved 140 meters north and 150 meters west and hole 11S-06 drilling east at -75 dip is currently in the zone. Hole 11S-02 collared at -70 (drill #2) approximately one kilometer to the west testing the same target ended at 503.5m did not hit the porphyry target. Sawn core samples are being sent for analyses.

The second drill is currently on the first set up to test Target A (vein target). A Google earth image showing these two ‘inner core’ targets can be viewed on the company website. The NR of July 21, 2011 contains geophysical description of both these targets.

Initial results of this program are pleasing. The reward of this discovery is attributed to the many explorers and numerous companies who passed through. Determination and perseverance may well conclude the ‘Dream Project’. We have found the probable source of the numerous veins using the most modern airborne and ground geophysical techniques. Drilling is expected to continue to October 15, 2011

Drill setups are testing targets developed using 3D inversion analysis of the new deeply penetrating geophysical data acquired this year and prepared by Peter Kowalczyk P.Geo., a qualified person within the terms of NI 43-101 standards and who has reviewed the technical content of this release. The information in this update has been prepared by Ellen Clements, onsite project manager. Jim Hutter, P.Geo. is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 on the Silver Queen project, and has reviewed and approved the applicable content of this release.

New Nadina Finds Porphyry Target at Silver Queen

July 21, 2011 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA – New Nadina Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE: NNA) announces they have completed an aeromagnetic and ZTEM airborne geophysical survey and a follow up Titan 24 ground survey over its mineral claim group at the Silver Queen project, south of Houston BC. A preliminary interpretation of the data has identified two new geophysical targets south and east of the former producing No 3 Vein at the Silver Queen mine. An image showing locations can be viewed on the Company website: www.nadina.com.

The first – the Titan A target – is part of a two and half kilometer long trend mapped by the ZTEM survey. The known Silver Queen vein system sits at the north-west end and central part of the trend and the Titan A target sits close to the south-east end of this trend. The Titan A target is characterized as electrically resistive and chargeable and is interpreted to be a potential vein type system of the Silver Queen type.

Close to the Titan A target, to the east and below it, is the Titan B target. This is a conductive zone, with an associated high chargeability. The geophysical character of the Titan B target indicates that it could be a buried porphyry type bulk tonnage deposit. Preliminary depth estimates to the top of the Titan B target are on the order of 350 meters. This target is a blind geophysical target and can only be tested by drilling. The geophysical interpretation of the geological setting of the Titan B target is that it is close to an intrusive stock-like body that sits below the Silver Queen Vein system, and that it is located in a jog of a large regional fault zone. This jog may be a zone of accommodation where the regional structure passes close to the stock-like body.

Both the Titan A and Titan B targets are untested by historical drilling to the best knowledge of the New Nadina Exploration team. There were eight Titan 24 lines run, results from the four lines (3.6km each) has resulted in these two targets. Two lines extending over the south end of Owen Lake have not shown target potential. Modeling of the two lines covering George and Cole Lake areas are pending.

ZTEM is a new natural source airborne electromagnetic method operated by Geotech airborne of Mississauga, Ontario. It can routinely penetrate to depths in excess of one kilometer and is particularly suited to the exploration for bulk tonnage disseminated porphyry type targets. It is also sensitive to large resistive zones such as silicified vein systems. Titan24 is a high powered, state of the art, deep penetrating induced polarization and magnetotelluric ground based system operated by Quantec Geoscience of Toronto Ontario. Depths of investigation greater than 300 meters are routinely achieved with the Titan24 system.

Interpretation of the new geophysical data acquired over the Silver Queen project is ongoing at the Advanced Geophysical Interpretation Centre of Mira Geoscience in Vancouver, British Columbia for New Nadina. The ZTEM, aeromagnetic, and Titan24 data will be used in conjunction with the ongoing geological mapping and surface prospecting program at the Silver Queen project to direct the 8,000 meter summer drill program planned for this year at the Silver Queen project by New Nadina Explorations Ltd.

The geophysical data in this press release has been reviewed by Peter Kowalczyk P.Geo., a qualified person within the terms of NI 43-101 standards.

New Nadina Announces Receipt of 43-101 Report

April 25, 2011 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA – New Nadina Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE: NNA) announces receipt of 43-101 report.

The following is a short summary of the report which can be viewed on SEDAR under the Company file and on the Company’s website.

“JDS Energy and Mining Inc. (JDS) was hired by New Nadina Explorations Limited (New Nadina) to provide an independent review of the Silver Queen property, located in Central British Columbia, Canada. The purpose of this report is to establish a historic basis from which to guide the future exploration and development activities at the Silver Queen property from a geologic and economic standpoint.

Any resource information for the Silver Queen property must be considered historic in nature and does not comply with any of the resource categories set out in NI 43-101 and the “CIM Definition of Standards on Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves” dated November 14th, 2004. However, the historic resource is considered relevant because it is indicative of the location, size and grade of the mineralized structures.

CONCLUSIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS
Data from historic production and exploration programs has shown to be valuable in locating highly prospective exploration targets. In order to guide the project development, economic considerations were applied by using historic resource data derived from the latest and most complete compilation of exploration and production data and metallurgical test work. There are a relatively small amount of historic resources currently delineated. In addition, there is a high degree of variability related to metallurgical performance between and within veins which will require additional metallurgical testing on the samples from the ultimate resources to be mined. Furthermore, reestablishment of mining parameters will be required.

Ranges of project economics based on metal prices and concentrate marketing success push the exploration focus into two areas for vein development. At historic head grades and metallurgical performance indicated, breakeven economic scenarios would require a mining rate of approximately 500tpd and a total mining reserve of 1.5 million tones at historic grades. Therefore, the majority of ore in this scenario must be newly delineated. Down drip and along strike extensions of No. 3 Vein show the best opportunity for success. Modeling of historic data show that grades trend higher towards that area of the vein and structure has been identified that has enough volume to host the volumes required. Other vein structures within the claim block should be explored simultaneously as they would provide concurrent production and allow higher production rates and therefore lower operating costs. Thicker structures should be targeted for their ability to support higher productivity and lower cost mining.

Significantly higher ore value may result by applying current metal prices and marketing a pyrite concentrate from which precious metal values could be realized. In this case, the required mining reserve to create a breakeven economic scenario would drop to as low as approximately 300,000 tonnes which approaches the size of the historic resource. This economic scenario directs effort to verification and incremental expansion of the historic resource even as new resources are identified. Historically, metallurgy has been shown to be complex for this deposit. However since the bulk of the resource is yet to be defined, and mineralogy in the deposit has been shown to vary between and within the veins themselves, metallurgical testing and marketing analysis should be delayed until resources are identified and can be tested directly.

Maximizing the value of recovered precious metals should be the focus in future design phases. From a marketing perspective, it may be possible to find a current producer that will use the pyrite concentrate as fuel in an autoclave, and pay for the gold and silver A rigorous program of data verification will have to be completed to get the value from the sizeable historic data base, for the purpose of resource estimation. More importantly, as modern NI 43-101 compliant procedures are established and implemented on site, the usefulness of the historic resource will be superseded by current, compliant data and results. As a result of historic information compilation and analysis, as well as application of economic constraints, and results of 2010 drilling, two distinct exploration programs have emerged.

The vein development program, as previously described, targets verification of the historic resource and expansion in areas below the No. 3 Vein South and NG3. Delineation of this resource will require dewatering of the 2590 Decline and drifting approximately 2,000 ft on the No. 3 vein. A second decline may be considered to access the NG3 vein and connect with the above drifting No. 3 Vein South. (ref holes U-89-1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8).

A Porphyry program is planned based on four holes that intercepted wide sections of quartz-pyrite which has led geologists to speculate that a Cu-Au porphyry system may be present. In order to confirm vein continuity and to identify possible targets at depth, a Titan 24 CDIP survey is recommended, along with alteration mapping and soil geochem.

PROPOSED BUDGET FOR 2011 EXPLORATION
IP Titan 24 geophysics and line cutting and consultant $360,000, 3D GIS model (Geosoft or Vulcan) and data compilation $60,000, Soil sampling – geochem $50,000 Prospecting and alteration mapping (south and east) $50,000, diamond drilling, geologist, sampling (5,000M) $1million for a 2011 Exploration Budget of $1,520,000.

The 2010 exploration program was guided by recommendations from previous reports and historical data. Previously untested areas peripheral to the presently known mineralization were targeted. Compiled historical data along with preliminary economic analysis is being used to identify the most prospective drill targets, and the size and quality of potential resources that may lead to an economically viable project.”
