Norsemont Significantly Increases the Size of the Mineralised Zones and Adds Third Drill Rig at the Constancia Project

    Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - Norsemont Mining Inc. ("Norsemont" or "the Company") (TSX-V: NOM;  Frankfurt: N8S; WKN: A0DQKK; OTC-BB: NOMFF; ISIN: CA6565291045) is pleased  to announce the arrival of a third diamond drill rig at the company's  flagship Constancia Project.

    Recent drilling at the Constancia Project has shown that the mineralization remains open on all sides of the deposit. Strongly enriched  chalcocite and high grade skarn copper mineralization are being encountered  over significant widths especially on the western and southern margins of  the deposit.

    "We are particularly pleased with the success of the drilling program  this year and continue to see strong copper mineralization over significant , generally greater than 100 metre, thicknesses in recent drilling, which  has encouraged us to bring on a third drill rig to the property" , said  Chief Geologist, Thomas Henricksen. "The Constancia Zone now has dimensions  of 1,000 by 900 meters", he added.

    The ongoing program will continue with step-out holes on 100 metre centres on the San Jose and Constancia Zones, with Constancia being the  immediate priority. Some specific exploration targets beyond the 100 metre  stepouts are also being planned for immediate drilling. The company has  completed over 6,100 metres out of a planned, second phase 20,000 metre  drill program.

    "We are now planning to report an interim resource estimate in September this year. We are clearly pleased with the results so far. When  we have defined the limits to the mineralization we are planning to  initiate a scoping study on the Constancia deposit which will involve  metallurgical testing, preliminary engineering and process design," said  President Bob Baxter.

    The drilling program and geological studies at the Constancia project  are being supervised by Chief Geologist Dr. Thomas A. Henricksen, P. Geo.,  Norsemont's Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101, who has reviewed and  approved the information contained in this news release. Core samples are  cut with a diamond saw, with one-half of the core placed in sealed bags,  and shipped to ALS Chemex Assay Labs in Lima, Peru. The program includes an  extensive quality control program for assaying which includes the  systematic use of standards, blanks, and field duplicate samples. Secondary laboratories are also used for check assaying.

    A plan map with drill hole locations is available on Norsemont's website at www.norsemont.com.
