Debut Earns 70% Interest at Nakina, Announces Drill Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Debut Diamonds Inc. (CNSX:DDI) (the "Company" or "Debut"), is pleased to announce that it has concluded Phase One of its exploration program at its Nakina Project, centrally located in a million square kilometers of underexplored area in northwestern Ontario, north of the village of Nakina. Within this area, the Company has acquired 88 mining claims that were staked for their kimberlite potential, and initiated an exploration program based on testing a priority selection. The program included ground magnetic surveys and drilling on 18 potential kimberlite targets in the central and southern portions of the project area, located within the traditional lands of Aroland First Nation. Of these, three (3) are recently staked mining claims.

The program failed to discover kimberlite, but did discover other types of mineralization. Pending full analysis, these discoveries will be evaluated in the context of an indicated reinterpretation of their geological setting.

On August 19, 2011, Debut acquired an option ("Nakina Option") to earn a 70% operating interest in 28 unpatented mining claims and under certain terms of that agreement, Debut was to incur a total of $750,000 in exploration expenditures on the property and also pay the Vendor an additional $25,000 and issue 600,000 Debut shares in each of the following two years to exercise the option and acquire a 70% interest in the claims.

While completing the recent drill program, Debut fulfilled its minimum work commitment of $750,000 as per the Nakina Option and has made final payment of $25,000 and issued 600,000 Debut shares to the Vendor, to complete the earn-in of a 70% interest in the claims. Additionally, the Company has signed a Joint Venture Agreement with the Vendor, with the Vendor retaining a 2% Diamond Royalty on diamond sales (less diamond selling costs) and a 2% Net Smelter Returns Royalty, in respect of all Minerals (other than Diamonds).

On September 18, 2012, the company filed an 'Exclusion of Time' request with the Minister of Northern Development and Mines ("MNDM"), on eighty-five (85) unpatented mining claims associated with the Company's Nakina Project, because of delays in concluding consultation with affected First Nations for approval of exploration work on First Nation traditional lands. On November 1, 2012, MNDM informed the Company that its application had been approved for only the 28 claim Nakina Option, because the filing deadline for assessment work on the claims was due within 90 days of the Company's request. The Company therefore received a Minister's Order, which set December 17, 2013 as the new anniversary date in which to complete and file assessment work. If the Company is unable to conclude consultation with Marten Falls First Nation, for an agreement regarding exploration in the northeastern portion of the project area by March 1st, 2013 it may then resubmit an 'Exclusion of Time' request for the additional 57 mining claims not covered in the current Minister's Order.

Additionally, the Company regrets having to announce the resignation of Theresa Okimaw-Hall as a member of its Board of Directors, as a consequence of her recent employment by the Mushkegowuk Tribal Council as Ring of Fire Manager.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle.
