DIOS Releases a Map of 7 Drill Hole Results Across a 425 M Strike of the Pontax Lithium (RB-BE-TA-CS) Discovery Zone

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2010) - DIOS EXPLORATION INC. (TSX VENTURE:DOS) releases a result location map of seven diamond drill holes drilled across a 425 meter strike on the PONTAX LITHIUM discovery zone, south-western James Bay, Quebec.

The result location map is available at the following address: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/pontax_lit500.pdf.

Let us recall that the lithium mineralized zone returned values up to 1.38 % Li2O over 12 m (meter), 1.43% Li2O over 13 m, 2,050 g/t Rb (ppm rubidium) over 13 m, 1.69 % Li2O over 9 m from drilling and a 21 m with almost 1 % lithium oxide.

The surface view map also shows horizontal diamond saw channel sample results, with values in percent Li2O. One composite sample returned 1.03 % Li2O over 19 m. Tables give associated metals (RB-BE-TA-CS) drill and saw sample results in metal value: for instance, a tantalum value (Ta) multiplied by 1.22 gives a Ta2O5 value.

The zone is open at depth and along strike, meaning that on both ends of the outcropping small hill, there is swampy vegetation hiding possible extents.

This LITHIUM (RB-BE-TA-CS) discovery was made recently by SIRIOS RESOURCES (50 %) and DIOS while mapping and looking for other commodities. The discovery was confirmed this Fall with six rock samples grading percent Li2O of 5.46, 4.08, 4.02, 2.90, 2.71, 2.56 % Li2O.

Values were up to 1,990 ppm Rb, 96 ppm Ta2O5, 330 ppm cesium & 97 ppm niobium.

All samples were assayed at Actlabs laboratories, Ancaster, ON. Mineralized standards and blanks were implemented in each sample batch for quality control. Sodium peroxide was used to dissolve samples, then to be assayed by ICP-AES and ICP-MS.

DIOS renewed its agreement with MI3 Communication Financiere Inc. ("MI3") to provide investor relations services thus increasing its visibility within the financial community. MI3, a Montreal based firm, provides communication services to public companies, primarily in the mining sector.
