Largo Continues to Report High Grade Drill Results from Its Maracas Vanadium Project in Bahia, Brazil

- Intersected 35 metres grading 1.68% V2O5 including 7 metres grading 2.09% V2O5

- Intersected multiple zones to the east of Gulcari "A" including 37 metres grading 1.00% V2O5 and 5 metres grading 1.28% V2O5

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2011) - Largo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LGO) ("Largo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from five additional drill holes from the ongoing 11,000-metre diamond drill program (reported May 17, 2011) at its Maracas Vanadium-PGM Project in Bahia, Brazil.

Significant results include (all widths true thickness):

  • Hole FGA108 – 5.00 metres grading 1.00% V2O5, and 35.00 metres grading 1.68% V2O5, including 7.00 metres grading 2.09% V2O5 (200 metres east of the Gulcari "A" deposit)
  • Hole FGA109 – 37.00 metres grading 1.00% V2O5, and 6.00 metres grading 1.01% V2O5, and 5.00 metres grading 1.28% V2O5 (100 metres west of the Gulcari "A" deposit)
  • Hole FGA110 – 15.00 metres grading 1.00% V2O5 (100 metres west of the Gulcari "A" deposit)

The current drill holes are step out holes from the Gulcari "A" deposit. The step outs vary from 100 to 200 metres (see map below).

For a full description of all the drill holes please see tables below.

Andy Campbell, P.Geo., Vice President, Exploration of the Company commented: "We are very pleased with the positive results from the current drill program which continues to confirm the consistency of vanadium values both at depth as well as in new zones to the east and west in the immediate vicinity of the Gulcari "A" deposit."

He continued, "FGA109 and FGA110 are 100-metre step out holes that have intersected several new zones to the west of the Gulcari "A" deposit. There are also additional drill holes that have tested zones two kilometres to the north along the Gulcari A and B trends, for which assay results are pending."

Largo continues to drill additional step out holes to further define the limits of the mineralization. The drill program has now moved away from Gulcari "A" in order to test other zones such as the Gulcari "B" zone which lies 500 metres east and 1.5 kilometres north of Gulcari "A". Largo is also testing new zones approximately 6.0 kilometres north and along the same trend as Gulcari "A".

Largo presently has two diamond drill rigs operating on the property with the objective to significantly increase the 13.1 million tonne mineral resource at an average grade of 1.34% on the property. As a result of work done by Largo over the past few years, they have identified several high priority targets along the Gulcari "A" trend and the Gulcari "B" trend. A third objective is to continue evaluating the PGM content. Further drill results will be released as assays are received.
