Velocity Minerals Ltd. Commences Geochemical Survey at Orogrande Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 29, 2010) - Velocity Minerals Ltd. (TSX:VLC) is pleased to announce that its field crew has started a geochemical soil survey on the first 60 claims the Company staked (A1 to A60) in the Orogrande mining district in Idaho county, Idaho. The 60 contiguous claims cover an area of approximately 1240 acres adjacent to and south of Premium Exploration Inc.'s Friday-Petsite project in the historic Orogrande Mining Division in central Idaho near an area known for past gold production.

Velocity's management is confident that a successful program of geochemical sampling could lead directly to delineating diamond drill targets. The Company's geological advisers believe that the area has received very little glaciation and thus feel soil samples will provide a valuable indicator of mineralization. Velocity anticipates a one month survey program on the A claims and then plans to direct the field crew to start a geochemical survey on the Company's T claims. 

The ground covered by the A claims has received relatively little recent exploration. The district, however, is known to contain multiple gold occurrences with some grades running as high as 0.8 ounce (22.7 grams) per ton. The claims completely surround two patented claims that contain the Homestake Mine, which is located in the Crooked River watershed, southeast of Grangeville, Idaho.

Premium has an active 10,000 meter diamond drilling program underway on the Friday-Petsite property approximately 3 kilometers north of the northern boundary of Velocity's claims and, in recent press releases, has announced continued drilling success to achieve resource growth while simultaneously revealing further potential at depth.

As was recently announced, Velocity staked a further 96 lode mining claims (T1 to T96) south of and adjoining Premium's Project X Property. The Eutopia Creek watershed covered by the T claims is considered to be prospective for gold exploration and the claim area includes five small historic mines, the Hematite Mine, Gold Master Mine, Eutopia Mine, Goldbug Mine and a fifth unnamed mine.

Velocity Minerals Ltd. is a public company dedicated to the acquisition, exploration and development of molybdenum, gold and other mineral resources.
