Geocom Drilling at Escorpion

BELLINGHAM, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 14, 2005 -- Geocom Resources Inc. (OTC BB: GOCM) is pleased to announce that core drilling has been initiated at its Escorpion gold project in Region IV of Coquimbo, Chile. Drilling will test the ore potential of two zones: the Chululera and Amax. The newly discovered Crystal and Crystal South zones will be tested in a follow-up drill program.

Four holes have been completed at the Chululera zone, where previous mining activity exposed a silicified and mineralized stockwork zone. Work by Geocom geologists indicates that the mineralized zone mimics the orientation of metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks in the area, and suggests a specific preference of mineralization for specific rock types. To date, all four holes have encountered the mineralized zone where expected, strengthening the supposition of stratiform-style mineralization.

Vertical hole ES-01 encountered silica stockwork from 9 to 17 meters (29-56 feet). Drill hole ES-02 encountered 6 meters of silica stockwork from 7 to 13 meters (23 to 43 feet), and hole ES-05 intersected silica stockwork from 4 to 9 meters (13 to 29.5 feet). Drill hole ES-06 was drilled as an angle hole from the same location as drill hole 5 and also intersected the silica stockwork zone.

Drill holes ES-03 and ES-04 were located approximately halfway between the Chululera zone and the Amax Zone, as a test of continuity. Hole ES-03 intersected fine-grained disseminated and stringer-controlled sulfide mineralization from 28 to 34 meters (92 to 111 feet). Hole ES-04 intersected the same zone from 24 to 30 meters (79 to 98 feet).

Core from all of the drill holes contains very-fine-grained sulfides, including pyrite, arsenopyrite, limonite and sericite.

Core from the first four holes has been split and sent to ALS Chemex in La Serena for analysis. Additional holes are being logged and sampled as completed. Drilling is expected to be complete by June 15.

Geocom is also pleased to report that it has received sample results from recent rock chip sampling at the Chululera zone, where the silica stockwork zone crops out on a hillside and was purposely exposed during drill road construction. The sample results are listed below:

Sample number       Au (ppm)      Au ounces per tonne
    301               2.04               0.066
    302               9.23               0.297
    303               2.86               0.092
    304               15.75              0.506
    305               12.30              0.395
    306               0.768              0.025
    307               4.17               0.134
    308               12.50              0.402
    309               0.038              0.001
    310               8.78               0.282
    311               0.465              0.015
    312               0.866              0.028
The weighted average gold value for the twelve Chululera surface samples representing available surface exposure of the mineralized zone is 4.81 grams per ton (0.154 oz/tonne Au). There is a strong association of gold with arsenic. Samples 301 through 306 are continuous chip samples.

Management is pleased with the results to date. Surface sampling results and drill core geology meet Geocom's expectations for this property, and the Company looks forward to evaluation of additional zones as work continues.
