Largo to Initiate Exploration Drill Program at Its Maracas Vanadium Project, Bahia, Brazil

- 11,000 metre drill program to test high priority targets

- Objective to double existing Mineral Resource

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) - Largo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LGO) ("Largo") is pleased to announce that it plans to begin an 11,000-metre exploration drill program at its Maracas Vanadium Project ("the Project") imminently. Several high priority targets have been identified through Largo's ongoing ground exploration program and the drill program has been designed with the goal of doubling the existing Mineral Resources Estimate at the project.

The Project's existing mineral reserve estimate of 13.1 million tonnes grading 1.34% vanadium pentoxide, which includes 8.7 million tonnes grading 1.94% vanadium pentoxide (see press release of August 12, 2008 for details on the mineral reserve estimate), was defined solely at the Glucari "A." The deposit, consisting of 400 meters by 150 meters of the property, remains open along strike as well as at depth. A portion of the 2011 drill program will be aimed at expanding the resource at Glucari "A" and other known showings in the immediate vicinity of the deposit (see figures 1 and 2).

In addition, a recent ground exploration program and magnetic survey has identified several similar occurrences on concessions Largo acquired in 2010 (see press release dated November 22, 2010). Largo's increased land position at the property totals over forty kilometres along strike (see figure 3). These new targets have been prioritized based on results from recent field test-work and will be followed up with drilling accordingly.

The drill program at the Project is expected to take nine months to a year to complete.

Andy Campbell, Vice President of Exploration for Largo, commented: "The exploration program that Largo has conducted over the past three months on the 40 kilometres of strike length that Largo controls in the belt as well as the other known showings has identified a number of high priority targets. It is our goal to double the current Mineral Resources Estimate with this program."
