Lara Exploration Ltd.: Drilling Results from the Canabrava VMS Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2011) - Lara Exploration Ltd., ("Lara" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:LRA) reports results from diamond drilling on the Canabrava VMS Project in Central Brazil and that Votorantim Metais Zinco S.A. ("Votorantim") has withdrawn from its Earn-in Agreement with the Company.

Votorantim completed 11 diamond drill holes for a total of approximately 1,628 metres on the Company's Canabrava VMS Project in central Brazil. The program tested priority target areas, where airborne geophysics and surface work, have defined electromagnetic conductors with signatures similar to the Palmeirópolis Deposits in the same belt (a series of zinc, lead, copper and silver sulphide ore bodies discovered by the Brazilian Geological Survey in the 1970's). The Votorantim drillholes intercepted zones with disseminated sulphides, primarily pyrrhotite, which account for the geophysical signatures, but no significant mineralization.

The Company is currently reviewing the exploration data provided by Votorantim to reassess its geological model and targeting.

Quality Control: Votorantim followed industry standard quality assurance and quality control procedures for all its samples from Canabrava.
