In the Face of Difficult Market Conditions, Deer Valley Corporation Reports Record Sales for the Second Quarter and First Six Months of 2008

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Deer Valley Corporation ("Deer Valley" or the "Company") (OTCBB: DVLY) today advised shareholders that the Company has achieved a new sales record for the quarter and the six months ending June 30th 2008. Steve Lawler, the CFO of the Company's operating subsidiary, Deer Valley Homebuilders, Inc., stated, "We are pleased to report total shipments valued at over $18.97 million in the second quarter. This revenue was 19.3% above the same quarter 2007 and slightly above the second quarter 2006, our previous record quarter. The second quarter 2008 revenue includes $4.3 million in sales attributable to the final deliveries of emergency relief cottages to the State of Mississippi. The $18.97 million second quarter revenue brought our total sales for the year-to-date to $35.6 million, a record level for the first six months of any calendar year in our history and an increase of 28.8% over our revenue for the same six month period in 2007. It is also notable that the Company's revenue for the twelve month period ending June 30, 2008 exceeded $71 million, a record for any twelve month period in the Company's history." Mr. Lawler cautioned, however, "Even with the addition to our backlog of the recently announced contract for modular twin townhomes, the Company expects the well publicized weakness in the housing market to present a challenge to our HUD Code dealer sales throughout the fall and winter months ahead."

Additional performance details for the period ending June 30, 2008 will be reported in the Company's Form 10-Q to be filed with the SEC prior to August 14, 2008.
