Nemaska Intersects 97.9 m of Spodumene Bearing Pegmatite on its Lithium (Whabouchi) Property and Confirms the Continuity of the Main Zone

10 February 2010

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2010) - Nemaska Exploration Inc. («Nemaska» or the «Company») (TSX VENTURE:NMX) announces a 97.9 m (75 m estimated true width) intersection of spodumene bearing pegmatite on its lithium (Whabouchi) property. This intersection confirms 200 m lateral extension to the West, of the main zone, which was identified last October. The main zone has already produced an intersection of 100.9 m (80.6 m estimated true width) of spodumene bearing pegmatite in October 2009. This intersection is part of the current 8,000 m diamond drilling campaign that commenced on January 15, 2010 on the Whabouchi property.

"All the holes completed to date show mineralization over widths of 10 m or more," commented Mr. Guy Bourassa, President and CEO of Nemaska. "Given the width and consistency of our initial results we have decided to accelerate the drilling campaign by adding a second drill. We are presently drilling the pegmatite zone on a 100 m grid over a distance of 1400 m."

A ground magnetic survey was done in January over a 14 km grid. The results of this survey confirms the presence of the pegmatite zone already identified by drilling and will help better target the future drill hole locations.

The technical sections of this press release have been prepared and reviewed by Claude Britt, P. Geo. and qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
