Advanced Explorations Inc. Identifies Additional Mineral Opportunities

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) - Advanced Explorations Inc. (the "Company" or "AEI") (TSX VENTURE:AXI)(FRANKFURT:AE6) is pleased to announce a program will be implemented on the Melville Peninsula to examine Precious Metal (PM) and other mineral potential within and local to its current properties in Nunavut. Regional surveying and mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada last year has highlighted several targets in the area. Three sections along the banded iron formation have been identified that have a similar setting to the Nunavut, Meadowbank gold deposit. Of particular interest is a "native silver and copper" showing reported by the GSC* that returned 1950 ppm/Ag (62.7 opt Ag) and 0.37% Cu, which is located within an AEI property.

There has been a significant increase in gold exploration on the Melville Peninsula with over 2 million hectares of exploration permits acquired in the last 6 months immediately south of the AEI project area. Given AEI's significant presence in the area, AEI will not ignore the gold/silver potential of its holdings. The Company`s program will undertake sufficient work to properly assess the value followed by decisions on whether to joint venture or spin out potential assets. Advanced Explorations will remain focused on iron ore while also exploring other mineral values that may exist in its holdings.

John Gingerich, President and CEO, commented:

"The Roche Bay iron project continues to strengthen as more technical and economic data becomes available. These positive results are providing additional development options which further enhance the project. The strong commodity markets open up the possibility of additional opportunities within our project area. Taking an opportunistic approach in respect to other commodities could provide additional ways to enhance the Company's asset base providing additional shareholder value."

The Company also wishes to announce that it held its annual general meeting of shareholders on June 16th at 11:00 a.m. and is pleased that all resolutions proposed in the management information circular were passed by the shareholders.
