Crowne Ventures, Inc. Initiates Smelting Operations

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - Crowne Ventures, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CRWV) is pleased to announce the plans for its smelting operations for the Gallo de Oro and Oro de Rojos properties.

Crowne Ventures has initiated contract discussions with the engineering staff at the Penoles smelter facility in Torreon, Mexico, which is approximately an 18-hour drive from our mining operations. The Penoles laboratory has been running smelting test procedures for the past several weeks. Once the flux formula for the best recovery is established, the facility's production costs will be established.

We plan for the excavated ore to be crushed to ⅛ minus at our mining site. The preliminary test production of 100 tons will be shipped by truck to the smelting facility. The Penoles facility has the capacity to direct smelt up to 3,000 tons of per month. The Penoles smelter processes ore from across Mexico and we are anticipating that we will have access to the majority of the monthly production.

To accommodate the increased production, we will be negotiating with the local rail system for ore cars to be dropped at rail head near the Gallo de Oro property. As a result, shipping costs will be dramatically reduced and NSRs (net smelter returns) dramatically increased.

In the best interests of the Company, we intend to contact additional production facilities across Mexico and test samples of ore will be shipped for amenability testing.
