MPH Ventures Corp.: Diamond Drilling Underway at Raney Gold Project, Timmins, NE Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 20, 2009) - MPH Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MPS) (FRANKFURT:IJA1) (the "Company") reports that a diamond drill program on its 100% owned 3,500 acres Raney Gold Project located southwest of Timmins, northeastern Ontario has commenced.

The 1,000 metre drill program will consist of four holes to test the downward continuity of the Raney gold mineralization. To date, ten diamond drill holes have been completed on the project, five holes by past project operators and five holes by MPH Ventures.

Significant gold intersections include 7.7 g/t Au over 6.8 metres in hole R-09-04, 6.5 g/t Au over 8.0 metres in hole R-09-08, and 3.5 g/t Au over 6.8 metres in hole 99-01. These intersections are positioned between the 90 metre and 130 metre vertical depth level. Shallower holes intersected narrow widths of lower gold grades and deeper holes intersected wider intercepts of higher gold grades. A long section of the drilling is included in the link below.

MPH president Jim Pettit commented "This drilling will begin to test deeper portions of this gold bearing structure on the Raney Gold project. The exceptional results from the small number of drill intersections to date indicate excellent potential for the discovery of a continuous zone of gold mineralization at depth.

The exploration program is being carried out under the direction of Todd Keast, P. Geo. The information in this news release was prepared by Todd Keast, P. Geo., a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
