Geocom and Kinross Gold Corporation Mobilize for the South Chile Projects Evaluation

BELLINGHAM, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 11, 2007 -- Geocom Resources Inc. (OTCBB: GOCM) is pleased to announce that the Company and Kinross Gold Corporation ("Kinross") (NYSE: KGC) (TSX: K) have mobilized their geologic teams to Region Ten of south Chile to evaluate its claims and to develop drill targets.

In November 2006 Geocom and Kinross staked a total of 318 claims in six separate claimblocks in Region Ten, based on anomalous multi-element sample results and prospective geology that exhibited the conditions to develop potentially economic mineral deposits. The total number of hectares acquired is 91,700, which is equivalent to 354 square miles.

Four technical teams have been deployed to conduct mapping and detailed sampling on six high-priority targets: the Chaiten copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry, the Cerro Primero disseminated gold target, the Cerro Vaca gold target, Cerro Mera gold-zinc-copper skarn target, the Cerro Condor gold zone, and the Rio Azulado porphyry copper target.

As part of the Rio Azulado evaluation, the Tigre high-grade silver zone will be sampled. Numerous secondary targets will be evaluated after the primary targets have been developed to drill-ready status.

Geocom and Kinross management are pleased with the results to date, and have fast-tracked the development of potential drill targets on the joint venture's claims. Due to the success achieved by the initial reconnaissance program, additional exploration in new areas of Region Ten is planned.

This exploration venture with Kinross is a further implementation of Geocom's business strategy of developing new exploration targets that it considers to have solid development potential, and then forming ventures with solid operating companies for continued development. In the view of management, such ventures will allow Geocom to continue its exploration efforts while maintaining an interest in its developing properties.
