The Company also announces that the TSX Venture Exchange has approved the private placement (the "Placement") of 5,000,000 units of Revelo for proceeds of C$750,000 at C$0.15 per unit with BLC.

The Properties, totalling approximately 60,000 Ha of tenements in Northern Chile, are all relatively early stage exploration projects.

Loro en el Hombro (3,700 Ha) is a property prospective for low-sulphidation, epithermal gold-silver veins and is located 25 kilometres south of Yamana Gold's highly productive El Peñon gold-silver mine, and directly east of Revelo's Las Pampas property, currently optioned to a subsidiary of Kinross Gold. Basic geochemical sampling has been completed to date on the property and Revelo is planning detailed geological mapping as well as soil and rock geochemical surveys.

Morsas (34,000 Ha) is a large property located along the IOCG belt approximately 50 kilometres southwest of Lundin Mining's Candelaria copper-gold mine. Basic geochemical sampling has been completed to date on the property and Revelo is currently planning detailed geological mapping, rock geochemical surveys and interpretation of available geophysical data, with a focus on magnetics data.

Culebra (17,400 Ha) and Anaconda (3,600 Ha) are properties that augment Revelo's already considerable land position along the Eocene-Oligocene porphyry copper belt, and will be added to Revelo's existing Block 3 (to be renamed Block 3-Culebra - >63,000 Ha) and Block 4 (to be renamed Block 4-Anaconda - >42,000 Ha) respectively. These properties lie along the prospective belt, between the giant La Escondida and El Salvador copper mines.
