Venus Metals Corporation Limited announced Gossan Samples Discovered at DeGrussa North Copper Project.

- Recent geological reconnaissance at DeGrussa North to investigate gravity anomalies and historical anomalous copper rock chip values has discovered subcropping gossans and gossan float at two separate locations in areas largely covered by soil and scree.

- At sample location 89, a subcropping quartz-rich limonitic breccia with abundant coarse and fine boxwork textures was discovered.

- At sample location 101, abundant float of a sheared hematite and quartz-rich boxwork gossan was discovered.

- The boxwork structures are interpreted to be after sulphide mineralization.

- As part of the reconnaissance, a total of 111 soil samples from 5 separate traverses and six rock chip samples from one traverse were also collected over the principal gravity anomalies (Figure 1).

- Both the rock chip and soil samples have been submitted for assaying; results are awaited.

- The results of the reconnaissance trip will allow the company to refine the ground EM survey planned in its search for massive copper gold sulphide deposits at its DeGrussa North prospect area.
