Vena Resources Clarifies Information on Azulcocha West and Provides Additional Information on the Private Placement

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2009) - Vena Resources Inc. (TSX:VEM)(LIMA:VEM)(FRANKFURT:V1R)(OTCBB:VNARF) (the "Company") issued a press release on November 16, 2009 indicating that an internal review by the project's geologists on the results of the 7,000 meter drill program estimate that a portion of the Azulcocha West property may contain in excess of 785,000 tonnes of polymetallic mineralization. The Company reminds investors that the polymetallic mineralization discussed is a potential target and that there has not been sufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and further that it is uncertain whether further exploration will result in a discovery of a mineral resource. The Company plans to hire an independent Qualified Person after the current drill program is completed with expectations to provide a NI 43-101 compliant report.

The Company is also providing additional information to its press release issued on November 13, 2009 that announced the completion of a private placement with Byron Securities Limited ("Byron Securities") for gross proceeds of $2,269,400 through the issuance of 7,564,668 units at a price of $0.30 per unit of which 266,000 units were purchased by insiders of the Company. A "gypsy swap" transaction closed concurrently with the private placement whereby an existing, non-insider shareholder sold 2,000,000 common shares of the Company to Canaccord Capital Corporation and then bought the same number of common shares under the private placement. As compensation, Byron Securities received a 1.5% cash commission and 130,000 broker warrants for the sale of the 2,000,000 units purchased as part of the private placement and a party not related to Byron Securities received $30,000 in cash commissions representing a 5% finder's fee.
