Bravura Files Assessment Report on Greenhorn Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2012) - Bravura Ventures Corp. ("Bravura" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BVQ) has filed a technical assessment report on its Greenhorn Property which highlights the results of its Phase II exploration program carried out by the Company during the latter part of 2011.

The Greenhorn Property consists of approximately 2536 hectares of mineral claims located in the Kootenay Terrane of south-eastern British Columbia. Claims in this group are underlain by mafic volcanic rocks of the Permian to Triassic Kaslo Group, fine-grained metasedimentary rocks of the Triassic Slocan Group, and intrusions of the Jurassic Kuskanax Batholith. The most significant mineralization discovered on the property to date is hosted in Kaslo Group rocks, and consists of a steeply eastward dipping quartz-rich amphibolite horizon containing chalcopyrite and pyrite. Several copper showings in the Dunn Creek area appear to be on the same horizon with a tentative strike length of over 2km. The North showing has similar characteristics but is not on stratigraphic trend with the other showings. It may be a different horizon or a fold repetition of the same unit.

Mineralization on the Greenhorn Property has been documented since 1903 when prospectors reported finding high grade copper and gold ore at the Cornwall showing. Several exploration programs were conducted but documentation is scarce, and assessment reports only date back to 1979. The most significant previous program was conducted by Phelps Dodge in 1997, and consisted of geological mapping, soil and rock sampling, magnetic and IP surveys, and three short drill holes. Bravura optioned the property in 2010 and subsequently contracted an airborne magnetic and VLF-EM survey from Aeroquest Airborne. Bravura's 2011 program consisted of collecting 1045 soil samples and the contracting of approximately 35km of ground time-domain electromagnetic (TEM) and magnetic surveys to cover known showings.

The 2011 exploration program showed a 2.4km long north-northwest trending linear copper-in-soil anomaly coincident with the known limits of the Dunn Creek copper horizon. Zinc, lead, and barium in soil are defining a linear feature of similar dimension and orientation, but offset roughly 175m to the west of the copper horizon. This second feature has coincident chargeability, TEM, and magnetic anomalies, suggesting potential for massive sulphide mineralization. Phelps Dodge drilled in this area, but holes appear to have been too short to cut the conductive horizon.

Based on the work carried out during 2011, it is recommended that the Company expand the TEM survey to the limits of the Kaslo Group rocks on the property. Detailed mapping of the entire grid is required to put all other data into a geological context. Property-wide sieved stream sediment sampling is also warranted. The linear zone with coincident geochemical and geophysical anomalies west of the copper horizon is a compelling drill target.

Based on the report and pending geological mapping in the area, the Company will consider drilling three diamond drill holes to test various parts of this anomalous zone. This proposed Phase III exploration program will require approximately $530,000 to complete.
