Lake Victoria Continues to Advance Kinyambwiga Gold Project Towards Establishment of a Low Cost High Grade Gold Mine, Tanzania

GOLDEN, COLORADO--(Marketwire - July 21, 2009) - Lake Victoria Mining Company (OTCBB:LVCA) is pleased to report the excavation of thirty-six trenches designed to closely define the continuity of mineralized quartz veins along a northeast to east-northeast trending structure. These trenches have advanced vein exposures towards a one kilometer strike length. As previously reported, the Company continues to move forward with its previously announced plan to establish a low cost, high grade commercial gold mine at Kinyambwiga in northern Tanzania.

The Kinyambwiga project lies within License Number PL4653/2007 and covers 30.73 square kilometers in northern Tanzania's Lake Victoria Greenstone Belt. The property is about 110 kilometers northeast of Mwanza and 12 kilometers west of the smaller town of Bunda.

- The current trenching program follows a detailed ground magnetic survey completed earlier this year that helped project quartz vein directions below shallow cover, beyond last year's drilling program.

- The drilling program succeeded in defining gold bearing quartz veins over a 300 meter strike length, and the trenches have now extended the length of the veins to 450 meters.

- While additional trenches will be required to further advance and expose the veins, based on preliminary trench mapping, it appears that three new veins may have been exposed that were not drilled. The veins have granite host rocks and in addition to microscopic gold, the one to one-and-half to three meter thick quartz veins are also mineralized with disseminated pyrite and visible gold.

- In the western part of the quartz vein system the trenches have exposed two parallel northeast trending veins that are 20 to 50 meters apart; preliminary mapping suggests that the southern vein may be an extension of the main mineralized zone.

Detailed geological studies are underway and geological representatives from SRK Consulting recently visited the property, and provided certain recommendations for additional trenching, sampling and assaying. These recommendations will be followed as Company geologists continue to map and to collect samples of the veins for gold assaying in preparation for feasibility and environmental studies to be commenced shortly.

In addition to the Kinyambwiga field work, Kilimanjaro Mining Company (www.kilimanjarominingcompany.com) and Lake Victoria Mining Company have advanced the share exchange program, and are hoping to close this transaction as planned on July 23rd.
