Bold Ventures Signs Memorandum of Understanding With Attawapiskat First Nation, Plans to Drill

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 11, 2012) - Bold Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BOL) ("Bold" or the "Company") is pleased to advise that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Attawapiskat First Nation ("ATFN") to cover the initial drilling program of its Area 52,53,54 and 56 claim groups located within 100 kilometres of the area dubbed "The Ring of Fire" northern Ontario. The MOU allows for Bold's initial drill program in that area to commence while respecting the environment and the traditional activities of the local people and addresses benefits for the local economy and job creation. The initial diamond drilling program will consist of approximately 2000 metres of NQ sized core drilling.

In late 2010 the Company staked the Area 52, 53, 54 and 56 claims to cover a number of high potential VTEM anomalies. Numerous anomalies were encountered with at least ten that are recommended for follow up drill testing. Three separate VTEM anomalies are favourably compared to the anomaly at Noront Resources Eagle One Ni-Cu-PGM discovery. Mr. Scott Hogg, a consultant and advisor to the Board of Bold concluded in his report dated November 23rd 2010 (which may be accessed by visiting the Company's new web site) that:

"In general, anomalies within the Ring of Fire Area that have a significant time constant have proven to be associated with sulphide mineralization. The Eagle One nickel deposit had an associated time constant of just under 4 milliseconds ("msec"). Anomaly 53-A has a longer time constant of about 4.5 msec and presents an exceptional target from an airborne electromagnetic perspective. This anomaly should be the first priority for drill testing. The conductors 52-A and 52-B that also have time constants of about 4 msec and clearly warrant investigation. These two target areas are strongly recommended for drill testing. There are multiple conductors in this group and each may reflect a different type of mineralization. The anomalies 54-A and B warrant investigation but on a lower priority relative to the other higher conductance anomalies identified. Anomaly 55-A, B and C are recommended for investigation with initial focus directed to the more conductive zone 55-A. Anomaly 55-E is also recommended for follow up investigation. The anomalies 56-A and 56-C are recommended for follow up investigation."

In other news, the Company reports that the recent drill program at REN 8 and Area 55 was completed on schedule. The sampling of NQ drill core from that project has been sent to the laboratory and results are expected shortly.
