Ansell Acquires Property Adjoining Richfield Ventures Corp.'s Blackwater Gold Project

WEST VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 22, 2010) - Ansell Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ACP) is pleased to announce that it has acquired for the cost of staking 14 mineral tenures located in the Omineca Mining Division of the Province of British Columbia covering an area of 6,357 hectares. The claims are located near Richfield Venture's Blackwater Gold Project in Central British Columbia. The claims known as the Kuyakuz Mountain Project are located east of the Blackwater Gold Project in an area with similar geologic features. Underlying formations are undivided volcanics of the Hazelton Group that are the host of Richfield's Blackwater gold discovery. Available geological information indicates that the acquired claims are located in an area where despite much cover of overburden and Tertiary volcanic rocks, several important gold showings have been found. In addition, the very large "CHU" molybdenum deposit is located 25 km north.

A comprehensive program of exploration is being planned and work will commence when field conditions permit. Access to the property is provided by a network of well maintained logging roads and accommodation for field personnel is available at nearby recreational camps.

On January 5, 2010 Richfield Ventures Corp. issued a news release announcing its drilling results as follows:

"Gold values are fairly consistent, with several one metre intervals of higher gold values through much of the hole; the three highest such samples assayed 132 g/t Au (between 247 and 248 m depth), 42.5 g/t Au (between 331 and 332 m depth) and 17.8 g/t Au (between 215 and 216 m depth). The entire hole averaged 1.25 g/t Au over a sampled length of 329.2 metres from bedrock to the bottom of the hole. Averages include lower grade intervals; for example one lower grade interval averaged 0.12 g/t Au over 19 metres (between 312 and 331 m).
