China Digital Venture Corporation ("China Digital" or the "Company") Strategic Acquisition of U.S.-Based Exploration and Mining Company

LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Apr 5, 2012) - China Digital Venture Corporation (OTCBB: CDVV) is pleased to announce the acquisition of all of the mineral rights properties of ARNEVUT Resources Inc. ("ARNEVUT"), an exploration and mining company headquartered in Lakewood, Colorado. ARNEVUT is a development stage junior exploration and mining company engaged in the identification, acquisition, evaluation, exploration and development of mineral properties in the United States. ARNEVUT is focused on the exploration and development of the Island Mountain Property in the Jerritt Canyon Trends of Nevada as its primary property. The Company is also involved in the development of mineral claims comprising the East Canyon Property in Utah and Nevada and has an option to acquire a 100% interest in 79 mineral claims comprising the Zia property located in Cibola County, New Mexico.

Island Mountain Property (Gold): Arnevut has an option to acquire majority control of the Island Mountain property from Gateway Gold Corporation (Gateway), subject to certain payments and work commitments. The property consists of 53 unpatented lode mineral claims that comprise an area of 920 acres (372 hectares) situated near the northeast end of the Jerritt Canyon Trend, one of four trends in northern Nevada known for disseminated sediment-hosted mineralization of the "Carlin Type," and for more recently recognized high grade epithermal feeder systems. A strong gold anomaly in surface outcrops has been the focus of intensive exploration. It is above an isolated, albeit deeper magnetic high that likely represents the contact metamorphic aureole around an apophysis off the main intrusive body which could be a cupola situation, with strong exploration implications for bulk mineralization at attainable depths.

East Canyon Property (Gold and Copper): The East Canyon property is located in Elko County, Nevada and Box Elder County, Utah. Most of the claims are located in Box Elder County, Utah. The property originally consisted of ten lode claims, comprising about 200 acres. The claims were located by Manuel Montoya of Parker, Colorado. Subsequently added to the property was a lease on Utah State Section 16, which lies about 1 mile south of the southern end of the lode claims. A NI 43-101 compliant report under contract to ARNEVUT is in progress on the property. East Canyon is prospective for gold and copper within the current claims area. This property is available for option or purchase by financial and strategic investors.

Zia Property (Uranium): The Zia Uranium property is 9 miles northeast of Grants, New Mexico. The property contains uranium mineralization hosted by the Todilto Limestone and probable uranium mineralization hosted by sandstones of the Morrison Formation, all of the Jurassic age. These claims are wholly owned by ARNEVUT.

"This is a strategic acquisition for China Digital, as the concessions have excellent exploration potential," stated Robert Price, China Digital's Director & CEO. "We know from our research that new discoveries are still possible in this historic district and we are excited about the prospects for the projects of ARNEVUT."

Through the course of due diligence, China Digital has already completed considerable ground work on the claims. Upon signing of a definitive agreement, the Company will be immediately re-commencing geological mapping and rock sampling, while potential drill sites are being investigated to test the various structures.
