2012 News Releases

HY LAKE GOLD INC. (CNSX: HYL) is pleased to announce that it has begun its 2012 drilling programs at its West Red Lake properties. The initial program will focus on the company’s 100%-owned Mount Jamie Mine Property and recently acquired, 100%-owned Golden Tree Property. A total of 4,800 metres is planned for this phase of drilling, with 2,500 metres planned for Mount Jamie and 2,300 metres planned for Golden Tree.

The winter/spring Mount Jamie drilling will consist of 17 holes designed to test the extensions of the property-scale mineralized corridors along their strikes including the historical North Vein Trend. Several holes are planned to test the possible continuation of the mineralization to the west of the historical Mount Jamie Mine workings. The definition drill holes will be drilled in pairs with -45 and -60 dip, and lengths of between 110 and 160 metres. Five holes will be drilled as a green-field exploration project and will test several prospective geophysical and geological targets for gold mineralization (see map).

Hy Lake Gold has also planned a 12-hole drilling program at the adjacent 100%-owned Golden Tree Property. Drilling will test the east and west extensions of the West Red Lake Zone of gold mineralization and the on-strike continuation of the North Vein. One surface sample from the 2011 program returned more than 25 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold at a location likely associated with the North Vein mineralization (see map).

2011 Drilling

“The design of the 2011 drilling program at Mount Jamie was largely based on interpretation of the 3- dimentional database built on the historical data available, and on Hy Lake Gold’s property-scale in- house structural study”, said Hy Lake VP, Exploration Vadim Galkin. “The results decisively confirmed the validity of our exploration targeting model. Favorable geology and carbonate and sericite-chlorite alteration as well as various sulphide mineralization were encountered in all 31 drill holes along with relatively low, but encouraging values in gold. It is these intercepts that allow connecting areas of higher gold assays to each other and establishing of main property-scale mineralization trends. Another geologically significant result of the 2011 drilling program was the discovery of the much more extensive presence of diorites/granodiorites in the central part of the Mount Jamie Mine property”.

Rowan Lake Mine Property

The Company is finalizing its 2012 exploration plans for its 60%-owned Rowan Lake Mine Property, held in a Joint Venture with Goldcorp’s Red Lake Gold Mines. Drilling plans, budgets and timing are being evaluated for execution.

In 2011, Hy Lake Gold conducted a 3,880 metre drill program at the Rowan-NT Zone. The subvertical mineralization corridor was delineated and extended along strike by an additional 0.9 km. The Rowan-NT

Zone remains open to the north-east on the Rowan Lake property for an indicated 1.1 kilometres (Map 1). It possibly conjugates with the Porphyry Hill/Creek Zones to the north-east. Together with the Confederation/Redstar Property, situated to the south-west, the actual strike length of the zone proved to be at least 2.5 km with true width varying within a 25 - 110 m range and remains open to the north-east on the Rowan Lake property. Although the breccia itself usually returned higher gold assays, the gold mineralization corridor proved to be much wider than the breccia zone itself. One can speculate that the breccia zone, delineated in 2011, may represent just one sliver of a broader shear corridor of gold mineralization. The significant gold intercepts are summarized in Table 1. For detailed assays, map and sections please see the news release of November 3, 2011 (http://www.hylake.com/all-news.aspx).

The 2011 drill program at the Rowan Main Zone focused on further delineation of a series of several sub- parallel, high-grade gold zones to the east-north-east of the Rowan Lake Mine shaft. The drilling program consisted of two pairs of holes, 90 metres to the east and 50 metres to the north of the 2010 drill locations. The main geological result of this drilling was the discovery of a second breccia corridor, intersected by all 4 holes, with striking lithological and structural similarities to the Rowan-NT breccias This cross- cutting zone of quartz-carbonate breccias, often with strong sulphide (mainly pyrite and pyrrhotite) mineralization, is hosted by felsic/mafic/ultramafic volcanics and quartz porphyry. The breccia corridor is quite wide, ranging from 90 to 250 metres along the hole trace, and may occur split into several breccia subzones separated by considerably less deformed units of 10 to 30 metres wide. The significant gold intercepts are summarized in Table 1. For detailed assays, map and sections please see the news release of November 14, 2011 (http://www.hylake.com/all-news.aspx).

For 2012, further definition of the Rowan-NT Zone to the northeast (the potential exists for ~ 1000m along strike) will be the main priority of the drilling. Some infill drilling at steeper angles between the 2011 drill holes are under consideration to test the continuity of the mineralization at deeper levels and to obtain more data for a future resource estimate.

The 2011 discovery of the Rowan Main Zones breccias corridor, with gold mineralization similar to the Rowan-NT Zone, represents a high priority target for drilling in 2012. The drilling will focus on tracing the breccias to the east and west-north-west, along the assumed strike, as well as establishing the actual width of the corridor. Hy Lake Gold and its JV partner Red Lake Gold Mines are also considering drilling a few longer holes (>500 m) to test the possible convergence of the Main Zone Vein System east of the holes drilled in 2011 and to establish their relationship to the breccias zone.

Details of the 2012 Rowan Lake Mine property exploration programs will be released when finalized and approved by the Joint Venture management.

The significant gold intercepts from the 2011 drilling programs are summarized in Table 1. For detailed assays, map and sections please see the news release of April 14, 2011 (http://www.hylake.com/all- news.aspx ).

Drilling Contract

2012 drilling operations at the Hy Lake Gold West Red Lake properties will be carried out by Chibougamau Diamond Drilling Ltd. of Chibougamau, Quebec. The Company has executed a 40,000 metre drilling contract with Chibougamau, with a guaranteed minimum deliverable of 20,000 metres,

representing a nearly 80% increase over the 2011 drilling programs of 11,216 metres. Hy Lake also has the option of mobilizing a second drill rig to the properties when needed.
