- LOI Signed to Secure Four (4) Additional Tungsten Projects in the Currais Novos District Totalling 4,595 Hectares

- Significant Potential for Additional Tungsten Resources and Bi-Products

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2011) - Largo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LGO) ("Largo" or the "Company") announced today that it has signed a Letter of Intent (L.O.I.) to secure the acquisition of four new attractive tungsten exploration properties, namely Acauã, Cafuca, Galo and Recanto totalling 4,595 hectares near its Currais Novos Tungsten Project, in Rio Grande de Norte, Brazil.

The properties have interesting exploration potential and provide an opportunity to increase Largo's tungsten reserve base within the Currais Novos District. Acauã is a promising target with good underground showings. Cafuca is an old mine that was worked by Anglo American in the 1980s. Galo is immediately adjacent to Cafuca and has the down dip continuation of the mineralization mined on Cafuca. Recanto is a good early stage exploration target in the same belt.

All of the aforementioned properties are in close proximity to the Currais Novos project (see figure 1 below) within the Currais Novos District. Largo expects to sign a definitive agreement by the end of February, 2011, after which, exploration on the properties will commence alongside the ongoing development at Currais Novos.

Prior to the announcement of the completion of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (P.E.A.) for the existing properties at Currais Novos (see press release dated December 14, 2010) installation licences were granted, and an implementation and operational team was assembled.

Construction activities at Currais Novos have commenced and are continuing as scheduled for the recovery of tungsten from mine tailings with initial production set to begin by July 2011.

Closing of Currais Novos Financing Agreement

Largo announces that it has entered into a financing arrangement whereby certain advances may be made in various amounts and tranches up to an aggregate amount of $4.0 million (the "Facility"). An initial advance under the Facility has been made to Largo and future advances under the Facility are contingent upon Largo's completion of certain conditions precedent thereunder. The amounts owed under the Facility may be repaid in common shares of Largo based on the market price at the date of such request, subject at that time to receipt of all required regulatory approvals for the issuance of common shares in exchange for the cancellation of any portion of the Facility. Largo intends to use the proceeds from the Facility to acquire and put into production the Currais Novos property in Brazil.

Largo further announces that it has also entered into a definitive supply agreement in respect of tungsten to be produced from the Currais Novos property, with initial shipments anticipated on or about July, 2011.
