DOT Announces Commencement of Exploration Program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2009) - DOT Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DOT) ("DOT" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has commenced its 2009 fall exploration drilling program on its 4,800 acre, 100% owned Dot porphyry copper +/- molybdenum, gold, silver property located 17 kilometres south of the Highland Valley Mining District, in south-central British Columbia.

It is anticipated that the proceeds of the recently announced financing of approximately $850,000 will fund the planned 3,000 metre diamond drilling program. It is further anticipated that up to ten holes focused on the Southeast Zone, the West Zone, and the Northwest Zone will be drilled with hole depths ranging from 250 to 450 metres.

The objective of the drilling program is to validate new and highly perspective areas of copper mineralization.

John J. Komarnicki, President and CEO, stated "We are very pleased to be commencing our fall drilling program which we anticipate completing before or shortly after the end of 2009 with results of this program being made available thereafter. We are focusing on what we believe to be high-impact targets, those that if successful, will add significantly to our current reported NI 43-101 resource base of 4.47 million tonnes of Indicated resource grading 0.42% copper and 2.39 million tonnes of Inferred resource grading 0.40% copper, both at a 0.20% copper cut-off."
