Six First-Priority Induced Polarization Conductors Outlined in the Gold "Conductor" Area on DIOS AU33 Projet-Map Published

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2011) - DIOS EXPLORATION (TSX VENTURE:DOS) reports that data interpretation outlined 6 first-priority conductors possibly associated with veins and/or disseminated sulphides as observed at the « conductor » gold showing on the gold-diamond AU33 project, Opinaca-Eastmain-1 area. The lateral extents of theses geophysical conductors generally vary from 1 to 2 km in length. See map on: http://diosexplo.com/pdfs/Au33inducedpolarization.pdf

Several of these priority targets will be investigated by trenching or stripping during the nest summer campaign. Fourteen other second-priority conductors were also identified as well as several graphitic zones. 

The Conductor gold showing discovered in 2010 had returned values between 2.9 to 37.3 g/t Au (gold) in grab samples and up to 56 g/t Ag (silver) and its track-sampling assayed:

9.64 g/t Au/0.7 m

4.9 g/t Au, 14 g/t Ag, 0.28% Pb, 0.15% Zn/ 1 m

2.1 g/t Au/4.5 m incl. 8.1 g/t Au, 23 g/t Ag, 0.31% Pb, 0.32% Zn/1 m & 2.1 g/t Au/ 1.5/ m ;

3.44 g/t Au / 1.0 m for 1.3 g/t Au / 2.5 m;

The property also hosts the Fallara gold showing that previously assayed up to 9.9 g/t Au.

DIOS recently received the final interpretation of the induced polarization ground geophysical survey completed last fall on the « conductor » area within the gold-diamond AU33 project, , James Bay, Quebec. In October 2010, a total of 34 kilometer-lines of induced polarization was completed by Abitibi Geophysics on a 5 km by 1.5 km grid (dipole-dipole; a=25m, n=1-8).
