October 4(th), 2010, Vancouver, BC, Canada - Bolero Resources Corp. (the "Company" or "Bolero"), (TSX-V: BRU), (FRANKFURT: U7N1) announces it has received additional assay results of soil samples taken from the "Carbonatite Syndicate" Rare Earth Element prospect in northern BC, that substantially increase previously reported Rare Earth Element "REE" values. New assays from recent soil grids have increased maximum concentrations of Cerium (Ce) and Lanthanum (La) to as high as 1205 ppm and 663 ppm respectively, far exceeding previous numbers of up to 631 ppm and 377 ppm respectively. Thirty of 228 soil samples returned total "REE+Y" contents above 1000 ppm and show elevated levels of "pathfinder elements" such as Niobium (Nb) and Barium (Ba).

Bolero will be commencing a drill program on the property, following the interpretation of preliminary data, from the recently completed AeroTEM III and Radiometric surveys. Preliminary airborne data will be correlated with positive soil samples and existing field radiometric anomalies to establish priority Rare Earth Element drill targets on the property. With drill permits now in place, Bolero anticipates a multi hole drill program on up to 3 separate drill sites to commence shortly.

Bolero Resources' President and CEO, R. Bruce Duncan, stated "We are encouraged by the substantial increase in Rare Earth values from the recent soil assays and look forward to the drill program commencing shortly. In other projects, we recently identified significant coincident IP and Geochem anomalies on our "Red Chris South" prospect, contiguous to Imperial Metals Corporation (III - TSX) Red Chris copper-gold property; and have now commenced work on our "White Gold" prospect in the White Gold District/Stewart River region of the Yukon."

About the Carbonatite Syndicate

The "Carbonatite Syndicate" Rare Earth prospect consists of 57 claims covering approximately 56,000 acres and is accessible by all weather gravel roads. It is approximately 80km north east of Prince George, BC, along the trace of the Rocky Mountain Trench, a major continental geologic feature which is now recognized for the numerous proximal rare earth element mineral showings. The property is contiguous to and surrounding, Spectrum Mining's "Wicheeda" Rare Earth Element discovery, that recently returned significant grades including a 48.64 metre interval which averaged 3.55% rare earth elements, a 72.0 metre interval that averaged 2.92% REE, and a 144 metre interval which averaged 2.20% REE in three separate drill holes.
