Sabina Resources Limited - Drilling Continues to Expand Bonanza-Follansbee Red Lake Gold Zones - Step-Out Drilling Intersects 29.89g/t Au Across 2.0 Meters

Thunder Bay, Ontario (ots/PRNewswire) - - Shares Issued: 36,524,244 Sabina Resources Limited (SBB:TSX-V) is pleased to announce an update from its 60%-owned Follansbee Joint Venture Project (40% Wolfden Resources Inc. (WLF:TSX)). The Follansbee Property hosts significant gold mineralization in the Red Lake gold camp. Joint Venture partner Wolfden reports (August 30, 2005) that recent deep drilling has intersected multiple zones of silicification and mineralization at depths of up to 500 meters on the adjoining Bonanza Property (100% Wolfden). Hole 05WB-38, the furthest step-out hole drilled to the southwest to-date, intersected 29.89g/t Au across 2.0 meters associated with an ultramafic dike. Drilling has intersected gold mineralization in multiple horizons over a strike length of more than 500 meters across the Bonanza and Follansbee Properties. The primary zones are named the Follansbee, Rahill and Bonanza Zones. The northerly Follansbee and Rahill Zones, previously referred to as the "Conglomerate Zone" and the "Silicified Zone" respectively, are contained primarily within silicified conglomerate/greywacke rock units containing trace to 10% sulphides. The southerly Bonanza Zones, previously referred to as the "Sulphide" Zone, is contained primarily within silicified iron formation and/or argillite rock units containing trace to 20% sulphides. All zones display vertical and horizontal continuity and contain significant widths of near-surface mineralization, suggesting the potential to develop a "bulk tonnage" gold deposit. Three drills continue to expand mineralization that remains open both along strike and down dip. Drilling continues to intersect broad zones of gold mineralization in a near-surface setting and narrower, high-grade gold that may be targets for underground mining. Holes 34 and 35 were drilled to the southwest to better define an area where a cross-cutting intrusive displaces the gold zones.

High-grade gold in the Red Lake Greenstone belt is often found in high strain zones proximal to ultramafic rock units - to-date, numerous ultramafic rock units have been intersected on the Bonanza and Follansbee Properties. Red Lake is world renowned for high-grade gold, with Placer Dome's Campbell Gold Mine and Goldcorp's Red Lake Mine, located approximately 3 kilometers to the east of Bonanza- Follansbee, being two of the highest grade gold mines in the world. Core at Bonanza has been split, with half sent to Accurassay Laboratories for fire assay.
