ABV Gold Nominates Dr. Marcel Morin as Vice-President of Exploration

MONTREAL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 20, 2007 --ABV Gold (PINKSHEETS: ABVG), a gold and other precious metals mining company, announced today that it had nominated Dr. Marcel Morin as vice-president of exploration and lead advisor to the board of directors.

Dr Morin's main responsibilities will be to advise the board on the validity of projects and will also be responsible for the supervision and execution of exploration programs. Dr. Morin will also be tasked with the review of potential and future acquisition and/or partnership for the development of the Parin Mining properties and other newly acquired properties.

Dr. Morin is a retired geological engineer with experience of over 50 years in mining, mineral exploration and public services. He brings an extensive knowledge of the geology of Canada, particularly the Province of Quebec. He has contributed to the preparation of the geological compilation map of the Province during several years of services with the former Department of Mines. He has worked and supervised exploration programs for base and precious metals as well as uranium in Ontario and Quebec. For 12 years he acted as Director of the Mining Sector of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), to supervise and implement international projects in different parts of the World.

"We are glad to have been able to recruit such a well known specialist to join our team at this very exciting time in our history," said Sylvain Amyot, Interim President of ABV Gold. "Dr. Morin's knowledge of the Parin properties as well as his experience Internationally will be a great advantage," further added Mr. Amyot.

The Parin claims are easily accessible by paved highways and secondary roads and, therefore, allow for efficient development. The Joutel region is well known for its gold and zinc deposits where two mines to the southwest produced in excess of 8 million tonnes of copper and zinc and two others account for several million ounces of gold, either in past production or in reserves. The Parin properties occur in a similar favorable environment for the occurrence of these types of deposits.
