Lake Victoria Intersects Suspected Visible Gold in Three Target Areas, at the Singida-Londoni Gold Project, Tanzania

GOLDEN, COLORADO--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2010) - Lake Victoria (OTCBB:LVCA) is pleased to provide a further update on the Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program at the Singida-Londoni gold project in Tanzania. To date, drilling has successfully intersected possible visible gold and the metallic minerals pyrite and arsenopyrite. These metallic sulfide minerals are often associated with gold and gold deposits and were present in three target areas, Sambaru 3, 4 and 5. Assay results are expected shortly of the first consignment of 820 drill samples sent to SGS Laboratory, Mwanza, which will determine the level of gold present.

Drilling at Sambaru 5, a site of abundant artisanal surface workings located near the northwest end of the license area, was successfully completed. A total of six holes were drilled on two sections spaced 80 meters apart. Four narrow, but apparently continuous zones of sulfide mineralization, previously reported in the news release of the 20th September 2010, appear to be present.

The drill rig, recently completed three boreholes to test the area immediately north of the main artisanal mines in the central part of the Sambaru 4 target. Two zones of increased sulfide minerals were intersected at down hole distances of about 19 meters and 70 meters. The zones have a length of about 10 and 23 meters respectively. The upper zone is believed to represent a new mineralized zone. The lower zone, previously intersected in an adjacent hole, is believed to represent the main zone that the artisanal miners worked at a more shallow depth. Drilling indicates the lower zone now extends to at least 70 meters below the surface. Occasional grains of possible gold are present in panned drill hole samples from the upper zone; with more abundant possible gold grains appear to be present in panned samples from the deeper zone. The drill is currently testing a 120 meter long zone of artisanal mining in the southeastern part of Sambaru 4; following this drilling, the drill moves to the Sambaru 2 target near the central part of the five kilometer long license area.

Roger Newell said: " These preliminary drill results are very encouraging and the presence of the metallic sulfide minerals of pyrite and arsenopyrite, which are often associated with gold, underscores the importance of what appears to be visible gold in our drill samples. We look forward to providing drill hole assay results in the near future."
