Geo Minerals to Commence Drilling at Silver Bell West, Arizona

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - GEO MINERALS LTD. (TSX VENTURE:GM)(FRANKFURT:8G3) ("GEO" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that mobilization is underway at the Silver Bell West property in southern Arizona, with drilling set to commence immediately. Altar Drilling, Inc. (Tucson, Arizona) has been contracted to perform the drill program, with ten drill holes permitted at locations optimized by field mapping and soil geochemistry. The Silver Bell West property is located in the historic Silver Bell District, which has produced more than 176 Mt at an average grade of 0.63% copper from skarn, secondary enrichment blankets, and oxide copper deposits associated with a Laramide porphyry copper system, and had 1990 reserves of 185 Mt at 0.61% copper (reported in Long, 1995, Arizona Geol. Soc. Digest, v. 20).

The Company's Silver Bell West property is under lease from Bronco Creek Exploration (see News Release August 27, 2009), and is targeting porphyry copper and copper skarn mineralization in structurally down-dropped blocks lying adjacent to mineralization currently being exploited by Asarco. Field work in 2007 revealed several target areas within a largely untested zone for potential skarn and porphyry-style copper mineralization. The zone lies in the southeastern portion of the property, where areas of suspected skarn and related porphyry-style mineralization are projected to underlie outcrops containing quartz-chalcopyrite vein swarms in igneous rocks adjacent to gold-bearing copper veins in sedimentary rocks comprising the contact aureole.

The Company also would like to bring attention to an interview with Geo Minerals board member David Lajack on the Smartstox Online TV Talk Show. This interview can be found at www.smartstox.com/interviews/gm.
