Revolution Discovers Second Zone at Champion Hills Project, Carolina Slate Belt: Intersects 28.0 Meters Averaging 3.01 g/t Au

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 11, 2011) - Revolution Resources Corp. (TSX:RV) ("Revolution" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that drilling on its Champion Hills Project at the historic Jones-Keystone mine has resulted in the discovery of a second gold mineralized zone. The Champion Hills Project is located in the Carolina Slate Belt, North Carolina. The Company's Phase II 5,000 meter core drilling program is underway.

Drill hole JK10-06 encountered 28.0 meters averaging 3.01 g/t Au within an interval of 54.0 meters averaging 1.56 g/t Au. This hole was the second completed at the Jones-Keystone target; this area is covered by numerous shallow open pit mine workings, and located along the same structural corridor as the Loflin Prospect located 2,700 meters to the west. Recently announced initial drill results from Loflin include: 70.0 meters averaging 1.10 g/t Au and 30.0 meters averaging 2.59 g/t Au (See RV News Release, January 6th, 2011).

Gold mineralization at Champion Hills is hosted within andesitic metavolcanic rocks, typically with strong pyrite, pyrrhotite and arsenopyrite mineralization. Gold prospects and historic mines along the trend are likely hosted along synvolcanic structures that strike east-northeast. Drill hole JK10-06 was drilled to the northwest, and intersected gold mineralization approximately 200 meters downhole, underneath shallow historic pits. Drill hole JK10-05, collared 130 meters further east of JK10-06 encountered 14.0 meters averaging 0.52 g/t Au and may have setup too far too the south. Assays for JK10-07, located 50 meters northeast of JK10-06 are currently pending and will be released shortly.

The 2,700 metre, 11 hole Phase I drilling program focused on two areas of historic mining and drilling. Results from the initial holes at the Loflin and Jones-Keystone confirm a significant gold mineralized system with geological similarities to mines and deposits in the Carolina Slate Belt; including Romarco Minerals' Haile Mine. Assays are currently pending for two additional holes at Loflin, and one hole at Jones-Keystone. Additionally, Revolution is completing an extensive soil geochemical sampling program and geological mapping throughout the trend.

Complete drill results are as follows:

Hole ID   From   To   Interval   Avg Au
JK10-005   162.00   176.00   14.00   0.52
incl   170.00   174.00   4.00   0.92
JK10-006   184.00   238.00   54.00   1.56
incl   200.00   228.00   28.00   3.01
incl   226.00   228.00   2.00   9.16
JK10-007   Assay Results Pending

About the Champion Hills Project

The Champion Hills Property is comprised of multiple historic pits and workings within a 25 kilometer long trend in North Carolina. The Project occurs within the Carolina Slate Belt, which hosts most of the major gold mines in the southeastern U.S. Significant deposits include the Ridgeway Mine, which produced 1.5 million ounces of gold from 1988 to 1999, and Romarco's Haile Mine project. The Champion Hills project is geologically analogous to these deposits, whereby gold mineralization is hosted within quartz-sericite-pyrite altered volcanic rocks, associated with northeast trending shear zones. 

Minimal modern exploration has occurred in the Carolina Slate Belt, generally due to previous complex land tenure. Gold was discovered in the Champion Hills in the early 1800's, with small scale production from many small operations. Mining continued in the area through the 1930's depression era. Noranda explored Champion Hills for shallow, open-pit gold deposits from 1989 to 1992, completing 23 core holes totalling 2,936 meters. This drilling encountered multiple drill intercepts averaging over 0.5 to 1.3 g/t Au over long intervals, including several holes that were abandoned in mineralization at depth. Complete historic results can be viewed on the Company's website at
