Lake Victoria's Trenching and Gold Assays Extend Projected Mineralized Vein to Two Kilometers at Kinyambwiga Gold Project, Tanzania

GOLDEN, COLORADO--(Marketwire - Aug. 27, 2009) - Lake Victoria Mining Company (OTCBB:LVCA) is pleased to report that preliminary field information suggests that new trenches have increased vein exposures and extended projected vein lengths to approximately two kilometers. Additional trenching, mapping and assaying are required to further define and confirm these initial findings.

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.

Fire assays have been received for twenty-four quartz vein samples previously tested by bulk leach assaying. Both the bulk leach and the fire assay results are tabulated below; the average result for the leach assays is 3.48 vs. the average fire assay result of 3.56 grams per metric ton.

Roger Newell president of Lake Victoria said, "These samples were collected from quartz veins exposed in trenches, and since the results from both assay techniques are similar, the suggestion is that metallurgical processing of the initial ore by leaching, rather than by more expensive methods, may provide the most optimal gold recoveries. Additional testing of deeper samples will be required to confirm results from these shallow trench samples."
