Ateba Expands Property Holdings on the Larder-Cadillac Break and Initiates a 10,000 Metre Drill Program

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2011) - Ateba Resources Inc. ("Ateba" or the "Company") (CNSX:ATR) is pleased to announce that it has staked 110 addition claim units to add to its existing flagship property called the Larder Group. The company now holds 462 units spanning 15 kilometres along strike from the northeastern boundary of Queenston Mining's Upper Beaver Property through McVittie, Katrine and Ossian townships towards the Quebec border with Ontario. The newly staked ground covers a large portion of the Misema Lake-Mist Lake Fault which is the direct extension of the Matachewan-Kirkland Lake Trend.

The Larder Group encompasses the highly prospective Walsh Katrine Mine, Copper King and Kerr North gold/copper properties and is contiguous to Queenston's Upper Beaver Property. A 10,000 metre drill program is underway with several targets having been identified based on geophysics recently completed on the property.

"With the staking of these properties we have tied up additional highly prospective land in an area which is a known gold/copper producing region," commented Bill Dickie, President and CEO of Ateba. "More than 38 million ounces of gold has been produced from within a 30 km radius of our property and we are obviously very eager to begin drilling. We have started our drill program with the goal of exploring the existing historical underground workings and trenches as well as make new discoveries."
