VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2009) - MPH Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MPS) (FRANKFURT:IJA1) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the mobilization and commencement of drilling on the Company's 100% owned Godfrey Gold property located 20 km west of Timmins, Ontario and 9 km northwest of the Lakeshore Gold Timmins Mine.

The plan is to complete two holes for a total of 400 metres before the Christmas break. Drilling will initially test Induced Polarization (IP) chargeability anomalies identified during the MPH Ventures fall 2009 geophysical program. IP surveys have delineated a prospective chargeability anomaly coincident with a resistivity anomaly extending for 275 metres across the south portion of the Godfrey Gold property. This area is host to a 125 metre long trench exposed by previous operators within a highly altered felsic intrusion. Multiple quartz veins and shear structures contain pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena and visible gold with grab sample assay results up to 386.4 g/t gold (13.8 oz/t Au).

Five grab samples collected during the Company's initial property visit returned assay values between 0.01 g/t to 76.4 g/t gold (2.7 oz/t Au). The higher grade sample of quartz vein material contained pyrite and chalcopyrite, hosted within an altered felsic intrusion.

MPH president Jim Pettit commented "We are excited to be able to get a few holes in before the Christmas break. This is a highly prospective property with good geology and a great location. We look forward to the results in the New Year from the testing the geophysical targets identified from our Fall 09 program".

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.
