Sabina Gold & Silver Completes Sale of Newman-Madsen, Ontario Assets

Laurentian Goldfields Consolidates Newman Madsen Region in Red Lake District

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (the "Company" or "Sabina") (TSX: SBB) reported today that it has completed the sale of the Company's Newman-Madsen property to Laurentian Goldfields Ltd. ("Laurentian").

The Newman Madsen property is an early stage exploration project comprised of 38 patented mining claims located in the Red Lake Mining Division of Ontario, 3.5 km southwest of the town of Red Lake and 4.5 km northeast the Madsen Mine.

"Newman-Madsen was a non-core asset to the Company, however, the property was viewed as a good opportunity for future discoveries in the prolific Red Lake camp," said Rob Pease, President and CEO of Sabina "The vending in of our Red Lake property in this newly consolidated Laurentian land package offers many high quality opportunities for discoveries and potential near term production. We look forward to hearing about Laurentian's work plans for the properties over the next several months."

In consideration for the asset, Sabina has received 6.5 million shares in Laurentian, representing approximately 6.3% of the total issued and outstanding shares of Laurentian. Sabina also received a participation right to maintain its holdings in Laurentian in future financings (until the earlier of 24 months or Sabina ceases to hold at least 3.5% of the shares of Laurentian).

The shares are subject to a four month hold. The transaction has received all required regulatory, exchange and third party approvals and consents.

Laurentian Goldfields

Laurentian is a junior resource company that has recently consolidated a large strategic land position (5,000 hectares) in the historically high grade and high margin Madsen trend in Red Lake, Ontario.

The consolidation of the Newman-Madsen Property and the Madsen Gold Project, that was also recently acquired by Laurentian, into one contiguous land package expands the Laurentian's access to prospective horizons along the Madsen Mine Trend by more than two kilometres, and provides exposure to prospective structural horizons associated with the Buffalo and Laverty deposits.

The Madsen Mine Trend lies along the Balmer and Confederation unconformity, and is the key structural break that hosts the past producing Madsen and Starratt-Olsen gold deposits. Mineralization has been previously identified at Newman-Madsen along the structural break, with wide spaced drilling in 2010.

Laurentian is run by a proven management team (Rob Pease has been appointed to its Board of Directors) with technical and practical expertise in Red Lake and has the singular focus to explore the prospective trend. To facilitate this exploration, Laurentian recently completed a financing and will have cash and working capital of approximately $11.5 million; all to be spent on progressing this highly prospective trend.
