Triple Dragon Resources Inc.: Acquisition Of Camlaren And May Properties
Triple Dragon Resources Inc.: Acquisition Of Camlaren And May Properties

June 16, 2009 - Triple Dragon Resources Inc. (CNSX:TDN) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired two additional gold properties in the Gordon Lake area of the Northwest Territories, Canada:

Camlaren Property

The Camlaren Property consists of two mineral claims covering approximately 2,425 acres (981 hectares), located 80 km northeast of Yellowknife and just 6 km east-southeast of the Company's wholly owned Murray Property. The Company acquired the claims by staking.

The Camlaren Property includes the past producing Camlaren Gold Mine, as well as other gold showings. Gold production commenced at the Camlaren Mine in 1963 when more than 11,000 tons of ore was trucked to the Discovery Mine, located 40 km to the northwest, and approximately 15,000 ounces of gold was produced. Noranda Mines Ltd. contracted the Mining Corporation of Canada Limited to erect a temporary milling plant on the property in 1980. The Camlaren Mine was developed to a depth of 1,000 feet (300 metres) and approximately 20,000 ounces of gold was produced from 1980 to 1981. During its two operational periods, the Camlaren Mine reportedly produced over 35,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 0.57 oz/ton gold (19.54 g/t) and over 5,000 ounces of silver at an unreported grade.

In 1980, drilling was conducted below the 1,000-foot level by Discovery Mines Ltd. with promising results:

Hole U-80-1: depth of 1,060 feet, 1.63 oz/ton gold (55.89 g/t) across 12.9 feet
Hole U-80-2: depth of 1,120 feet, 2.65 oz/ton gold (90.86 g/t) across 21.2 feet
Hole U-80-3: depth of 1,155 feet, 0.35 oz/ton gold (12.00 g/t) across 12.0 feet

The Camlaren Property includes two other historic gold showings: the "H-Vein", less than ½ km west of Camlaren Mine, and the "No. 31 Vein", on Zenith Island about 1½ km west-southwest of the mine. These veins are similar in character to the Hump Vein historically mined at Camlaren.

The H-Vein reportedly ranges in width from 5 to 30 inches and is exposed over 110 feet, extending across an unnamed island. Surface samples have been reported to contain up to 2.09 oz/ton gold (71.66 g/t). The No. 31 Vein appears as irregular, discontinuous, quartz vein lenses. Trench samples have returned values from 0.014 to 0.254 oz/ton gold (0.48 to 8.71 g/t).

The geology of the Camlaren Property is similar to that of the Murray Property. The claims are underlain by metaturbidites of the Archean Burwash Formation, and the area is considered favorable for turbidite-hosted quartz vein gold deposits. Gold mineralization is commonly accompanied by sulphides and appears structurally controlled, contained within veins formed by folding.

Notable examples of similar deposit types include the Meguma Group deposits in Nova Scotia, which produced in excess of 1.5 million ounces of gold, and the Bendigo District deposits in Australia, which have produced in excess of 12 million ounces of gold. The grades of these types of deposits commonly range from 5 g/t to more than 30 g/t gold.

The Company intends on conducting exploration on the Camlaren Property in 2009 to follow up on historic showings and further assess the mineralization potential of the property. This includes a property-wide program of field mapping and sampling with an emphasis on known mineralized showings and trends. The current condition of the Camlaren Mine shaft will be reviewed and tailing piles near the mine will be sampled. A compilation of all available historic data on the area is currently ongoing.

May Property

The Company has also acquired a 100% interest in the May Property, which consists of one mineral lease covering 100.5 acres (40.67 hectares), located 5 km south-southwest of the Camlaren Mine.

In 1981, Echo Bay Mines Ltd. drilled eleven diamond drill holes at the May Property, intersecting high grades of gold within a quartz vein. Visible gold was intersected in four of the drill holes with values as high as 8.78 oz/ton gold (301.03 g/t) over 1.5 feet, encountered in hole M81-7 from 81.5 to 83.0 feet. Additional drilling was recommended by Echo Bay geologists to test the vein, which is open to the south and at depth.

The May Property is underlain by steeply dipping, isoclinally folded Archean greywacke and slates. Rock types, structure, and quartz veining are similar to those at the Camlaren Property.

The May Property was acquired from prospector Dave Nickerson for total consideration of $5,500 cash, the issuance of $10,000 of common shares of the Company on May 14, 2010, and a further $15,000 of common shares of the Company on May 14, 2011.

The acquisition of the Camlaren and May Properties expands the Company's position in the Gordon Lake area of the Northwest Territories. A detailed map showing the properties of the Company along with historic photos of the Camlaren Mine can be viewed on our website: www.tripledragonresources.com.
