Valley High Ventures Ltd.: Trench Results From the Cordero Project, Mexico; 60 Metres Grading 0.95 Grams of Gold Per Tonne

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2010) - Valley High Ventures Ltd. ("Valley High" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VHV) and Levon Resources Ltd. ("Levon") are pleased to announce that results have been received from sampling of a recently excavated trench at the newly identified Dos Mil Diez zone located some 1.7 kilometres southwest of the nearest drill hole in the Pozo de Plata zone. Highlights of the trench include a central gold–rich domain that returned 60 metres grading 0.95 grams per tonne gold from within a larger 265 metre long interval characterized by sporadic elevated silver, zinc and lead.

The trench exposed a central gold-rich zone on a hematite stained hill comprised of silicified and argillic altered rhyolite breccia dykes gradational into surrounding recessive weathering polylithic diatreme breccia. The breccia zones are intensely weathered and oxidized and characterized by red hematite and manganese staining. Geological mapping in the area of this trench has identified numerous nearby historical workings of unknown age that includes pits, an adit and slag debris. A second drill rig has begun drill testing this new discovery.

The Cordero silver, gold, zinc, lead project comprises wholly-owned claims and consolidated land agreements that total about 20,000 hectares and is located 35 kilometres northeast of Hidalgo Del Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico. The exploration target is a bulk-mineable deposit geologically similar to the Penasquito deposit currently being developed by Goldcorp Inc. Including the Dos Mil Diez zone, the prospective mineralized belt at Cordero, as defined by five porphyry or intrusive centres, has now been defined through a strike length of 8 km and a width of about 3 km.

The Trench was excavated with a bulldozer to depths of 1 to 2 metres and sampled continuously through 5m intervals. All of the samples mentioned in this release were prepared and analyzed by ALS Chemex at its labs in Chihuahua and Vancouver. Gold analyses were performed by 30-gram fire assay with an atomic absorption ("AA") finish. Silver, zinc and lead were analyzed as part of a multi-element inductively coupled argon plasma ("ICP") package using a four acid digestion. The project is under the direct field supervision of Mr. Vic Chevillon, M.A., C.P.G., Levon's Vice President of Exploration and Juan Manuel Viveros, Valley High's senior geologist. Robert Cameron, P.Geo, who is a qualified person within the context of National Instrument 43-101 has read and takes responsibility for this news release.
