Orebodies Completes Purchase of 100% Interest in 5 Lithium/Rare Metals Properties and Provides Project Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 17, 2009) - Canadian Orebodies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CO) ("Orebodies") is pleased to announce that it is has completed the purchase of 100% legal and beneficial interest (subject to a 2% NSR retained by the vendor, 50% of which can be purchased by Orebodies for $1,000,000) in 5 separate Lithium/Rare Metals properties (the "Properties") with an arm's length third-party vendor. The Properties in total consist of 111 claim units comprising 1,776 hectares, all which are located in Ontario.

Project Update:

The previously announced work programs on the Properties which included detailed geological mapping and sampling across all 5 properties, mechanical stripping and systematic channel cuts across the Falcon West zone have now been successfully completed. All samples are currently being prepared to be sent out for assay, with results expected early in the New Year.

Orebodies has cut small orientation grids over the showing areas on the Falcon property and have now commenced an orientation Gradiometeric Mag and VLF survey. It is further intended to conduct a resistivity survey over the orientation grids as conditions permit. The intention of the surveys is to determine the ability to trace and locate lithium bearing pegmatites by geophysical techniques for the purpose of distinguishing between pegmatite bearing veins and host rock.

In addition, a small orientation down ice grid from the Falcon West was soil sampled to see if a Li bearing dispersal train could be detected from the showing area.
