Nemaska Reports 92.1 m at 1.39% Li2O and 133 ppm Be From Its Drilling Underway on Its Lithium/Beryllium Project (Whabouchi)

14 April 2010

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 14, 2010) - Nemaska Exploration Inc. («Nemaska» or the« Corporation») (TSX VENTURE:NMX) is pleased to announce additional results from its current drill program on its Lithium/Beryllium Whabouchi project,(100 % owned). These results confirm the impressive width of the mineralized zone. Highlights include: 92.1 m at 1.39% Li2O and 133 ppm Be, 77.8 m at 1.49% Li2O and 170 ppm Be and 70.3 m at 1.39 % Li2O and 171 ppm Be.

"The width, grade and continuity of our mineralization differentiates our project from every other hard rock lithium project in North America and puts us on the global map,", commented Mr. Guy Bourassa, President and CEO. "The lay of land, year round access to the property by road and nearby skilled labour and services have enabled us to accelerate the project development".

The drill results to date confirm that the main zone runs from section 1+50 to the section 12+00 with an average grade ranging between 1.50% and 2 % Li2O. The main zone has a width of 10 to 20 m from section 1+50 to 3+00 and becomes wider and reaches 80 m on section 4+75 and back to 10 m to 20 m at section 12+00. Four (4) other spodumene bearing pegmatite zones with variable widths reaching up to 27 m, have been identified, within 10 to 50 meters south of the main zone. All zones remain open at depth and to the East.

The intersections equal or greater than 5 m from the most recent 7 holes are reported in the table below:

The Company has reported the intersections lengths as well as the best estimates of the true widths given the current understanding of the geology. The drill holes were done at an average azimuth of 330 degrees and a dip of 50 degrees. The pegmatite bands have generally an azimuth of 060 degrees and a South-East dip of 70 degrees to 80 degrees.

The samples have been shipped for preparation (crushing and pulverization) to the Table Jamésienne de Concertation Minière (TJCM) lab in Chibougamau. The prepared samples are then sent by courier to the Toronto laboratory of SGS Mineral Services, Ontario, for lithium, beryllium and rubidium analysis by sodium peroxide fusion method. This laboratory is recognized by industry and accredited ISO/MEC 17025: 2005 by the Canadian Council of standards. Nemaska Exploration implements a rigorous quality control protocol to its operations, including the insertion of analytical control samples, duplicates and blanks and follow-up on the results of these assays.
