Soldi Ventures Inc. Discovers Samples up to 7.2 Ounces/Ton at the Golden Bullet Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2011) - Soldi Ventures Inc. (Soldi) (TSX VENTURE:SOV) is pleased to report that preliminary analysis from its summer long exploration program on the Golden Bullet Project has returned grab sample values as high as 7.2 oz/t gold. The highest grade sample was collected from newly exposed bedrock on the main license (assayed 222.5 g/t Au or 7.2 oz/t). Additional exploration, in the immediate area of this occurrence revealed a number of quartz–antimony veins which assay up to 26 g/t Au and 12.5% Antimony (Sb).

Exploration, approximately 200 meters west of the primary discovery, also yielded several anomalous gold results. The most significant of which is a 5-7 meter wide zone of mineralized quartz veining which recorded values of up to 11.7 g/t. It should be noted that all of these occurrences have only recently been exposed by ongoing quarry operations. Further work such as trenching to extend the zones and channel sampling to better determine the overall grade will commence shortly. These occurrences are found along a length of 1.5 kilometers, with local quartz float assaying up to 3.4 g/t Au.

Sampling, on additional ground acquired around the Golden Bullet property, has also resulted in a number of significant assay results. Exploration revisited known historical gold occurrences, where visible gold bearing angular quartz returned assays of up to 5.4 oz/t Au (167 g/t). Float to subcrop quartz material within 200 meters of this discovery yielded assays of up to 3.2 g/t Au. There is also a recorded historical, single point gold soil anomaly of 1.87 g/t (recorded as 1871 ppb) within 300 meters of the location of the visible gold bearing quartz.

Samples collected from the program are being analyzed at the Eastern Analytical Ltd. Laboratory located in Springdale, Newfoundland.

Further work such as trenching to extend the zones and channel sampling to better determine the overall grade will commence shortly. Soldi intends to aggressively follow up these and other developments and will be releasing further details as the exploration programs are finalized.

Previous History of the Golden Bullet Project

The Golden Bullet Project contains a number of significant gold showings, with values ranging up to 338.6g/t gold (Rubicon Minerals grab sample, 2005) and a historical grab sample recorded by Noranda of 2,130 g/t gold. The Project consists of 233 claim blocks (6,975 hectares) and has excellent road access near the town of Gander. After compiling all of the previous work carried out on the Project, Soldi intends to re-evaluate the project using modern exploration techniques including drilling to follow up on previous high grade gold results in drill holes.

The most notable gold intercepts from previous diamond drilling on the Project include: 57.46 g/t over 4.30 m, 38.53 g/t over 6.45 m, 106.2 g/t over 2.3m, 102.2 g/t over 0.76m, 32.2 g/t over 1.6m, 24.38 g/t over 1.83m and 8.98 g/t over 14.33m. These historical intercepts were drilled by Noranda beginning in 1987 and later continued by a Gander River Minerals and Hemlo-Bristol Joint Venture in the early 1990's. The Project lies within Davidsville Group turbiditic sediments including intervals of slate, siltstone and sandstone-greywacke that are interpreted to conformably overlie and be imbricated with the Gander River Complex. A belt of greywacke dominant sediments bound between two topographic linears appears to play a significant role in the known distribution of gold showings.

Historical work on the Project has lead to the discovery of four known zones that have been named the Grouse, Knob, Letha, and Bullet. More recently, in 2004, a 15 hole, 1724.5 metre HQ diamond drill program carried out by Rubicon Minerals Corp. tested three gold targets on the Project; namely the "Knob" (7 holes 897.7 metres), "Letha" (2 holes, 128.0 metres), and "Grouse" (6 holes, 698.8 metres).

The 2004 Drill program achieved its stated objectives of better defining the geometry and gold distribution of the "Knob" quartz vein system where previous drilling and surface sampling encountered several high grade intersections with abundant visible gold. However, the drilling only returned highly anomalous gold values from the complex vein system. The veining is mainly hosted by a moderately to strongly altered, relatively coarse greywacke/pebble conglomerate and rarely by finer grained siltstone/shale. Alteration consists of a proximal sericite-iron carbonate assemblage bordered by calcite ± chlorite. Arsenopyrite and pyrite are locally abundant along vein margins but rarely exceed 1% in the veins themselves. Visible gold was encountered in two locations.

Rubicon followed up this drill program with a ground program, where a total of 62 rock samples of mineralized quartz-rich float and outcrop were collected. Of these, 14 samples assayed above 1 g/t gold, six of those samples assayed over 5 g/t gold, and three samples assayed over 100 g/t gold. As with previous prospecting results, these samples tend to align over a 5 km strike length.
