Apella Commences Field Work on Its Lac Dore Iron-Vanadium-Titanium Assemblage

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 19, 2009) - Apella Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:APA)(FRANKFURT:NWN) and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce that Phase 1 of its 2009 field work has commenced on its Lac Dore Iron-Vanadium-Titanium (Fe-V-Ti) Assemblage, adjoining the well known 5.5 billion pound Lac Dore (Fe-V-Ti) deposit reported to be the world's second largest vanadium deposit. Crews are now on site and undertaking to create a grid encompassing approximately 40 line kilometres on the southwest and northwest claims of the Lac Dore Assemblage. Once this grid is complete a ground geophysical magnetometer survey ("Mag Survey") will be undertaken in the same area. The purpose of this program is to identify drill targets for a follow-up diamond drill program.

Apella has also put in motion the commencement of a second, similar 40 line kilometer grid, over its Lac Dore North Iron-Vanadium-Titanium Assemblage which also adjoins the well known Lac Dore Iron-Vanadium-Titanium deposit. Readers are referred to Apella press release of January 22, 2009 in which Apella reported its exceptional results obtained from its clearing and channel sampling program carried out on a portion of the ground to be covered by this new grid. A series of diamond drill holes are planned for this area and commencement of the drill program is expected to be announced soon.

The qualified person for the purposes of this news release is Dr. Christian G. Derosier, P.Geo.
