MPH Ventures Exploration Update on Northeastern Ontario Projects

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2009) - MPH Ventures Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MPS) (FRANKFURT:IJA1) (the "Company") provides an exploration update for three of it's 100% owned properties, Raney, Geneva Lake and the Big Mac Projects situated in Northeastern Ontario.

An ongoing exploration program at the Raney Gold Project has focused on tracing a gold bearing structure intersected in seven drill holes along a 100 metre long trend. Assay results are pending for three recently completed holes. Mechanical trenching has exposed the structure westward for 100 metres of strike extent from the current area of drilling. The trenches host alteration with discrete quartz veins ranging between 0.10 metres to 2.5 metres in width. The veins have been sampled with a series of channel saw cuts along the 100 metre long trend. The structure has now been traced with the combination of diamond drilling and surface trenching along a 200 metre strike distance.

The Big Mac Project, located 60 km northeast of Sudbury, Ontario, hosts an historical showing reported to contain coarse leaf gold. A sampling program in 1998 reported assay results up to 23 g/t Au from a weakly mineralized quartz vein, and four samples of the host volcanics which assayed between 4.8 g/t Au and 16.7 g/t Au. MPH exploration crews have relocated the showing which consists of three heavily overgrown trenches. An initial sampling program of the vein and surrounding volcanics has been completed. Assay results are pending.

The Geneva Lake Project, located 40 km north of Sudbury, is situated in an area which has seen relatively little gold exploration. Massive sulphide clasts within a conglomerate unit were reported to contain up to 6.8 g/t Au. The gold content of the clasts combined with the host rocks suggests potential for a larger scale exploration target. The company has located a number of sulphide clasts and collected samples in order to confirm the gold content.
