About Bravo Venture Group Inc.

Bravo's exploration activities are focused within North America, specifically in N.W. British Columbia, Nevada, and S.E. Alaska. The VMS/ Epithermal gold/silver Homestake Ridge project in British Columbia is advancing with excellent drill results and a NI43-101 compliant technical evaluation which reported an inferred resource of 903,231 ounces of gold and 5,745,746 ounces of silver contained within 11.9 million tonnes with an average grade of 2.36 g/t Au and 15.0 g/t Ag using a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t gold(1). The 2009 exploration program is expected to begin during July and will consist of an extensive +40-hole, 8,500 metre multi-rig drill program that will test the continuity of mineralization that remains open down dip and along strike to the southeast and northwest. The Woewodski Island prospect in S.E. Alaska is a precious-metal rich VMS target, which lies within a mineralized trend that hosts both the Greens Creek and Windy Craggy VMS deposits. A drill program is planned during Q2/Q3. The company also has a substantial land package consisting of thirteen properties located in the Battle Mountain/Eureka trend, Nevada.

(1) An 'Inferred Mineral Resource' is that part of a Mineral Resource for which quantity and grade or quality can be estimated on the basis of geological evidence and limited sampling and reasonably assumed, but not verified, geological and grade continuity. The estimate is based on limited information and sampling gathered through appropriate techniques from locations such as outcrops, trenches, pits, workings and drill holes. Due to the uncertainty which may attach to Inferred Mineral Resources, it cannot be assumed that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will be upgraded to an Indicated or Measured Mineral Resource as a result of continued exploration. Confidence in the estimate is insufficient to allow the meaningful application of technical and economic parameters or to enable an evaluation of economic viability worthy of public disclosure. Inferred Mineral Resources must be excluded from estimates forming the basis of feasibility or other economic studies (43-101CP, CIM, 2001).
