DIOS: Follow-up on U33 Areas with up to 6 & 10 Grams Gold per ton in Till and Lac Caron Claim Agreement

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2010) - DIOS EXPLORATION (TSX VENTURE:DOS) is currently completing a follow-up glacial sand sampling and prospecting program on its large wholly-owned U33 diamond-gold exploration project, James Bay, Quebec, in areas where values such as 6 and 10 grams per ton gold in glacial till (heavy mineral concentrates) were returned from this summer till campaign, apart from the major gold glacial dispersal train confirmed recently.

In 2009, DIOS initiated a grass root reconnaissance airborne glacial sand sampling program of 88 samples for kimberlite indicator and heavy minerals, following which some 1,400 claims were staked as map designated cells during the next winter in 2010. In late spring 2010, 167 more till samples were taken and significant results again obtained confirming the occurrence of a major gold glacial dispersal train, indicating a different source than the Gold Conductor showing later discovered this summer. But other areas also returned very significant values such as 6 and 10 grams per ton gold in glacial till (heavy minerals concentrates) and are thus being followed up this fall.
