Xmet Cuts 12.41 g/t Over 4.5 Metres at Duquesne-Ottoman; Continues to Expand Mineralization on Fox Zone

Marketwired

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire -04/26/12)- Xmet Inc. ("Xmet" or the "Company") (XME.V - News)(XMTTF.PK - News) is pleased to announce partial results from its winter drilling program on the Duquesne-Ottoman (DO) property located in the Abitibi region of Quebec. The DO property hosts 853,000 NI 43-101 compliant inferred gold ounces (uncut), is adjacent to three previous gold producers and shares common boundaries with properties that collectively host 4.0 million ounces in the inferred category in addition to 355,000 compliant indicated gold ounces along a 12 kilometre strike interval of the Porcupine-Destor fault, along which over 80 million ounces of gold have been produced.

Xmet's latest drill results from the Duquesne-Ottoman Property are summarized in Table 1. A wedge from a hole drilled in 2004 intersected 12.41 g/t over 4.50m (6.88 g/t Au with grades cut to 30.0 g/t Au) on the eastern extension of the Fox Zone and remains open to the east.

"This hole is very important as it extends the Fox Zone to the east above the -400 metre elevation and opens up the area to the east for additional drill testing", commented Charles Beaudry, President and COO of Xmet.

Another hole drilled on Fox, DO-12-72, intersected 3.23 g/t Au over 2.9 metres in the western part of the zone and adjacent to historic hole DQ94-10 which intersected 12.31 g/t Au over 4.23 metres (uncut).

On the parallel Liz Zone, hole DO-11-64 intersected a wide zone interval of 13.5 metres grading 1.01 g/t Au near other holes with similar widths of low grade gold mineralization.

Hole DO-11-67 at the Stinger Zone, located near the contact with the Duparquet sediments and interpreted to be along strike to the Pitt Zone located on the adjacent Brionor Property to the West, was meant to test the Liz and Fox zones extension to the Stinger Horizon. The hole intersected 2.96 g/t over 3.5m, approximately 140 metres down plunge from a hole included in the Current resource on the property.

Drilling has been suspended during spring break-up and will start up again when conditions permit.
