NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE US.

Vena Resources Inc. (TSX:VEM)(LIMA:VEM)(FRANKFURT:V1R)(OTCBB:VNARF), a Company with strong partnerships with some of the world's largest mining companies, is pleased to announce that an independent National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant resource estimate for its Macusani Uranium Project located in Peru will be filed on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and on the Company's website within 45 days. Henkle and Associates ("Henkle") has completed an updated resource estimate for Minergia S.A.C. ("Minergia"), a uranium exploration company owned jointly by Vena and Cameco. It should be noted that the NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate only encompasses five of the nine properties in the Macusani region. Minergia also owns uranium properties in the Muñani region where work is continuing.

The current resource numbers are based on 36,312 metres of diamond drilling in 220 drill holes performed over five years covering a small portion of the prospective target areas and indicates an overall resource estimate for the Macusani region of 5,691,588 pounds of measured resources, 12,525,199 pounds of indicated resources and 17,422,031 pounds of inferred resources at 0.18 pounds per ton cutoff and 5,690,701 pounds of measured resources, 11,674,765 pounds of indicated resources and 15,321,050 pounds of inferred resources at 0.36 pounds per ton cutoff as outlined in the attached table.

Juan Vegarra, CEO of Vena, stated, "It is exciting to report an increase of almost 60% in resources at Macusani including 5.7 million pounds in the measured category. As an aggregate, we have over 35 million pounds of U308 resources from a small portion of our target area, encouraging us to continue to convert blue-sky potential to measured resources across the entire plateau."

This press release was reviewed by William R. Henkle, Jr., P.Geo., Vena's Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.
