KAT Exploration and Bella Viaggio, Inc. Commence Drilling on Handcamp Gold Property

MOUNT PEARL, NEW FOUNDLAND--(Marketwire - July 6, 2010) - KAT Exploration, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: KATX)

KAT Exploration, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: KATX) and Bella Viaggio, Inc. (OTCBB: BVIG) are pleased to inform its shareholders & investment community that drilling on the Handcamp high grade gold property has begun today.

The first selected drill targets are taking place over the exposed outcrop known as the "Main Handcamp" showing, where channel samples generated a result of 7.1 g/t gold over 28ft along the surface.

The first series of three holes will be drilled at different intervals down depth. The next series also consists of three down depth holes two hundred meters south of the first drill holes. This is a new area that was discovered during the first round of an IP survey which coincided with gold anomalies in soils. The next series of holes will be in several areas to the north where IP, soils and trenching revealed strong anomalies near surface and at depth along with heavy mineralization in uncovered outcrops. This first phase of drilling will take place within a 1400 meter strike length of a very impressive gold bearing structure.

A second round of an IP survey will be carried out North West of the grid which is showing another large anomaly open to the west. This new target is very large and requires immediate testing to confirm the magnitude and size of the target.

Mr. Dean Fraser P. Geo and a geophysicist (RDF Consulting Ltd.) have been contracted to work with Mr. R. James Weick on the Handcamp project including the second round of geophysics.

President & CEO Ken Stead: "Over the weekend meetings with both geologists and geophysicist for a complete overview of the work thus far has demonstrated some new discoveries which has shed additional light on the potential of the Handcamp project. Like all companies, when a project gets to the stage of drilling, there is always a certain amount of apprehension and uncertainty as to what it will produce. However, the results of the ongoing work have strengthened our feelings to a much higher level of excitement and anticipation."
