AIVN Purchases 40 Acre Mill Site in Nevada

LITHIA, FL--(Marketwire - Apr 10, 2012) - American International Ventures, Inc. (AIVN) (OTCBB: AIVN) (OTCQB: AIVN) is proud to announce the purchase of a 40 acre mill site in Beatty, Nevada from Turner Ranch LLC for $304,000.00. This great property will be the home base for all Company mining operations in the State of Nevada run by AIVN's wholly owned subsidiary Placer Gold Prospecting, Inc. according to Jerry D. Scott, President Placer Gold Prospecting and Chief Operating Officer of AIVN.

In addition, AIVN plans to build its maintenance facility, storage and heavy equipment yard and future gold mill for the Bullfrog Mine Project in Rhyolite, a couple of miles away. The amenities the property offers include hookups to city water, power and sewer and access by paved road. The biggest benefit to the Company is the proximity and access it affords to the 100 acre mineral claims owned by AIVN's wholly owned subsidiary Placer Gold Prospecting right next to the famous Barrick Bullfrog open pit mine.

Escrow will close on or before May 1, 2012.
