VVC Exploration Disposes of Interest in Beaver Brook Mine

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 29, 2009) - VVC EXPLORATION CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:VVC)(FRANKFURT:V7S)(BERLIN:V7S) ("VVC" or the "Company") reports that Canadian Antimony Mine Inc. ("CAMI"), a private company, recently closed a transaction whereby all the shares of Beaver Brook Antimony Mines Inc. (BBAM") were sold to a third party. The said BBAM shares which were sold by CAMI, represent substantially all of the assets of CAMI. BBAM is the sole owner of the Beaver Brook Antimony Mines in Newfoundland and became a subsidiary of CAMI following a re-organization in March 2008.

Following the closing of the sale of BBAM, CAMI proceeded to distribute the net proceeds of the sale of the BBAM Shares to its preferred shareholders. VVC held 10% of the preferred shares of CAMI and as such has received the sum of $418,600.60 and is expecting an additional $27,100 once all the accounting of the transaction has been completed. Since 2007, when VVC started selling BBAM shares, the Company has received the aggregate amount of over $3.9 million relating to the sale of CAMI and BBAM shares.

As CAMI will in effect become an inactive company, VVC intends to sell all of the shares of the CAMI to a third party for $1.00. VVC will write-down the value of its investment in CAMI record an impairment loss of $1,803,014 for the 9-months period ended October 31, 2009, to reflect the effects of this transaction.
