Abcourt Enlarges its Vezza Gold Property

MONT-ST-HILAIRE, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) - Mr. Renaud Hinse, president and C.E.O. of Abcourt Mines Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ABI)(BERLIN:ABI)(FRANKFURT:ABI), is pleased to announce that Abcourt has increased the size of its Vezza gold property by staking 10 cells representing 695 hectares. 

The claims are located on a major gold structure in Quebec known as the Casa Berardi-Douay-Cameron zone. Recent press releases indicate a renewal of interest for that area. The adjoining Agnico-Eagle property in Vezza Township was recently sold to North American Palladium for $10 million and 50% of the Vior property located four kilometres to the west was optioned to Norvista Resources Corp. which has agreed to pay $ 3 million in two instalments and to spend $2.5 million on exploration work in the next eighteen months.

Abcourt Mines Inc. is an exploration and development company with strategically located properties in Northwestern Quebec, Canada. The Abcourt-Barvue project with 43-101 silver-zinc ore reserves and resources and the Elder mine with 43-101 gold resources and the Aldermac property with historical copper-zinc resources are all former producers. Abcourt is now focused on bringing the Abcourt-Barvue and Elder projects back in production and at the same time, it is working on other projects (Aldermac, Jonpol and Vendome), to increase its mineral resources inventory. A positive 43-101 feasibility study was completed in 2007 on the Abcourt-Barvue project. In addition, mill equipment was purchased. A 43-101 resource calculation was recently done for the Elder mine.
