Loncor Resources – Regional BLEG Geochemical Survey at Ngayu Project in the DR Congo Outlines Several Gold Targets

September 12, 2011
        --  BLEG (Bulk Leach Extractable Gold) results highlight  four key
            areas for follow up
        --  New areas will become priority for additional geological and
            geochemical surveys

TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Loncor Resources Inc. (the “Company” or
“Loncor”) (TSX-V: “LN”, NYSE-AMEX:”LON”) is pleased to announce encouraging initial results of the regional
BLEG (Bulk Leach Extractable Gold) geochemical stream sediment survey
over its Ngayu Gold Project, north eastern Democratic Republic of the
Congo (the “DRC”).

The BLEG survey was undertaken as part of the technical services
agreement (see Loncor’s press release dated December 10, 2010) entered
into between Loncor and Newmont Mining Corporation of Canada Limited, a
subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE:NEM) (“Newmont”). In
accordance with this agreement, Loncor is able to utilize advanced
exploration techniques developed by Newmont.

The BLEG method has the competitive advantage of being able to rapidly
and reliably assess large tracts of ground and is ideal for the Ngayu
project with its large 4,550 square kilometres of forested terrain.

The BLEG survey commenced in March this year and comprised the initial
collection of 418 stream sediment samples, at an average sample density
of one sample per 10 square kilometres. Samples were sent to Newmont’s
proprietary geochemical laboratory in Perth, Australia for preparation
and analysis.

The results from the BLEG survey have highlighted four principal areas
for follow up:

      1. Imva Fold Area - 30 km of prospective banded ironstone formation
         (B.I.F.) associated with a number of alluvial and hardrock gold
         occurrences.
      2. Adumbi Trend - 30 km of gold and arsenic anomalous trend extending
         northwest from the Adumbi deposit.
      3. Anguluku Area.
      4. Makapela Extension Area.

A follow up infill sampling program of 192 samples at an average sample
density of one sample per 4 square kilometres  is being undertaken over
the above areas and will help home-in on targets for follow up
groundwork and geophysical surveys.

Commenting on the initial results of the Ngayu BLEG survey, Peter
Cowley, President and C.E.O. of the Company, said: “The BLEG survey is
an important component in being able to rapidly assess the
prospectivity of Ngayu. Through our technical services agreement,
Newmont’s proprietary geochemical and geophysical techniques will
greatly assist in highlighting the most prospective areas for gold on
our large land block of over 4,500 square kilometers. We expect this to
result in a number of new prospects being delineated to fill our
project pipeline over the next six to nine months.”
