Mill Bay Ventures Inc.: Valentine Mountain Core Re-Sampling Yields 11.95 g/t Gold Over 0.83 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2011) - Further to recent news releases Mill Bay Ventures Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MBV)(PINK SHEETS:MLBVF)(FRANKFURT:M4K) is pleased to provide an update on the 2010 exploration program at the Discovery Zone on its 100% owned Valentine Mountain Property on southern Vancouver Island, B.C.

Initial geochemistry results from all ten holes have been received from ALS Minerals, using their ME-MS41 and Au-TL44 methods. Core rejects from selected intervals, and re-sampled quartered core intervals, were re-assayed using ALS Minerals' Au-SCR24 method, results for which have also been received. Eight core samples in seven holes yielded significant intercepts with gold values exceeding 1 g/t, based on the results using the Au-SCR-24 method. Intercepts in holes 3 and 4 have been modified from the previous news release to reflect the re-sampling results. Final gold intercepts from the 2010 drilling program are summarized in the following table:

Hole Number From (metres) To (metres) Interval (metres) Gold g/t
V10DDH-1 86.56 88.39 1.83 1.75
V10DDH-3 100.00 100.83 0.83 11.95
V10DDH-4 89.61 91.74 2.13 1.89
V10DDH-6 46.97 47.43 0.46 1.39
V10DDH-7 26.21 26.82 0.61 2.68
V10DDH-8 40.54 41.91 1.37 13.05
