Issuance of 43-101 Technical Report

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 3, 2009) - Exploration Orbite V.S.P.A. Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ORT.A) (Orbite) announces that it has filed a second technical report presenting the results of geological surveys on the alumina clay deposit located on its Grande-Vallee property. The work and results presented in the report were produced between July and October 2008. Three sectors of the property were studied during this campaign: the Madeleine, Simoneau and Marin sectors.

Efforts were concentrated on the Marin sector, which is the better known and explored sector of the three. During the latest 2008 campaign, 5,7 km of lines were cut, 64 exploration wells were dug and 1791 meters of drilling was carried out, spread over 14 holes. In his report, Mr. Jean-Guy Levaque, qualified geologist-engineer and campaign leader, states that this work resulted in the determination of the presence of 103 million metric tons of aluminous clay, having an average content of 24,6% Al2O3 (alumina), for the Marin Sector alone. This quantity was for a projected pit design under limiting constraints of minimum mudstone and sterile deposits.

The Technical Report was prepared by Jean-Guy Levaque, Geologist-Engineer, In conformity with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 standard; the complete report can be read in the original French version on www.sedar.com, or on Orbite's web site www.explorationorbite.com .

"The positive results obtained in this campaign leave no doubts as to the economic value of Exploration Orbite's project", declared Mr. Jean-Guy Levaque.

"We are very happy and satisfied with these results and are planning to use the alumina of the Marin sector for our initial operations", concluded Mr. Richard Boudreault, Orbite's president.
