Soldi Ventures Inc. Diversifies its Exploration to Include Graphite by Acquiring the Lochaber Property in Quebec

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2012) - Soldi Ventures Inc. (Soldi) (TSX VENTURE:SOV) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the 2,300 acre Lochaber Graphite Property in Quebec. The Lochaber Property had been the target of exploration in the early 1950s and again in the 1980s during which time an airborne survey (in report DP 83-05) was flown to further define targets. A strong, wide airborne conductor was discovered and a ground visit to the location revealed massive flake graphite. The property is located approximately 30 kilometers east of Ottawa-Gatineau, near a highway in a historic graphite mining district.

In a 1952 report it was reported that "trenches were bulldozed by Frobisher Exploration, stripping overburden of 3-18 inches perpendicular to the strike of the Graphite zone. 10 trenches were stripped every 50 feet for 550 feet of the zone. The graphite exposed ranged from 3 feet to over 10 feet in the last 150 feet of the zone. The graphite zone trends along a steep valley that has a strike of N85E." The author visually estimated grades of 10% to 15% graphite. A pit 1,500 feet west of this zone exposed graphite bearing rock.

A government airborne electromagnetic-magnetic survey detected conductors on three lines, showing parallel zones to the one which was trenched.

All historical work is being compiled, prior to designing an exploration program using modern exploration methods.

Pursuant to the terms of the option agreement, Zone will pay a cumulative amount of $100,000 cash and issue 1,500,000 common shares over a three year period. The Lochaber Property is subject to a 2.0% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR"). Zone shall have an option to purchase 1% of the NSR for the sum of $1,000,000 at any time up to when a production decision is made. The terms of the agreement are subject to regulatory approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
