Vendome Provides Update for the San Javier Mine Property (Mexico)

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 12, 2012) - Vendome Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:VDR)(FRANKFURT:9VR) ("Vendome" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update for the San Javier Mine property (the "property") located within the municipality of Malinaltepec, State of Guerrero, Mexico.

An exploration program of the property's mineralized systems is set to begin immediately. The Company's consultant A.C.A Howe International Limited has recommended an initial program designed to determine optimal targets for future drilling work. Specifically the program will focus on thoroughly sampling the vein systems and testing the potential for lower-grade silver/lead/zinc bulk mineralization in rocks hosting the vein systems. A control grid will be established for magnetic surveys and soil sampling. Test induced polarization (IP) surveys will be done in selected areas to map alteration zones and possible disseminated sulphides within vein system wall rocks. Detailed and property-scale mapping will also be done. A structural analysis from satellite imagery of the San Javier concession is in progress.

Mr. Franz Kozich, President of Vendome states "we are very excited to begin this exploration work as there is no recorded former systematic surface exploration of the San Javier Mine Property. We feel that this program has the potential to identify new vein exposures yielding high grade polymetallic values as well as lower grade bulk mineralization in the altered wall rocks that host these veins."

The property is 253 hectares in size and is located within the Sierra Madre del Sur precious metal belt of southwestern Mexico. The Company has the option to acquire a 50% interest in the San Javier Mine property by making aggregate cash payments of $325,000, issuing 3,800,000 common shares over a two year period, and incurring $2,600,000 in exploration expenditures over a three year period.
