Vior Completes First Drilling Program on Buteux Property

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Vior Inc. ("Vior") (TSX VENTURE:VIO)(FRANKFURT:VL5) has released results of six drill-holes completed on its Buteux-Fecteau property located south of Chibougamau-Chapais, Province of Quebec. This wide-grid drilling program followed-up on several IP (Induced Polarization) conductors and several gold showings, some of which were known previously, others discovered during field work carried on the property last fall.

A total of 1266 metres were completed during this drilling campaign, the first four drill-holes to verify the extensions of the Sigouin-Griffith-Desgagne showing. Drill-hole BU-08-01 tested the structure 100 metres to the west and 135 metres at depth. Drill-hole BU-08-02 was collared underneath the showing to a depth of 140 metres. Drill-hole BU-08-03 tested the structure 100 metres eastward to a depth of 190 metres while drill-hole BU-08-04 targeted the structure 200 metres eastward to a depth of 100 metres.

The four holes intersected the sheared tonalite-granodiorite structure containing quartz veinlets and disseminated pyrite. The structure varies in thickness from 1 to 4 metres. The best intersection returned 14.5 g/t Au over 1 metre (BU-08-02) while other intervals returned 1.4 g/t Au over 1 metre, (BU-08-01), 0,2 g/t Au over 4.0 metres (BU -08-03) and 0.6 g/t Au over 2.0 metres (BU-08-04) (see Table 1)

Drill-hole BU-08-05 was collared directly under the Guylaine showing discovered in the fall of 2007 (see PR dated October 25, 2007) and intersected the structure 75 metres below surface. The sheared tonalite-granodiorite structure was identified over more than 10 metres. Although no anomalous values were encountered, this structure which yielded 36.7 g/t Au in one chosen surface sample remains an exceptional exploration target.

The sixth drill-hole (BU-08-06) tested an IP conductor located 1.1 kilometre east-northeast of the Sigouin-Griffith showing. This conductor was explained by a shear zone altered by hematite injected with quartz veinlets, containing up to 10% disseminated pyrite. The mineralized intersection returned 0.24 g/t Au over 10.7 metres.

The 154-claim wholly-owned Buteux-Fecteau property which covers 9100 hectares is located in the Urban-Barry greenstone segment, east of the Abitibi greenstone belt and approximately 20 kilometres east of a discovery announced by Noront Resources in December 2006 (1,792.9 g/t Au over 4.8 metres). This section of the Abitibi geological sub-province remains relatively unexplored and several showings as well as a number of conductors revealed by an IP survey performed in the fall of 2007 have to be tested by further diamond drilling. A second IP survey is currently being conducted on the northeast section of the property.

This recent drilling program also tested the extensions of the Fecteau Lake showing (FEC-98-01, 1.6% Zn over 4.5 metres), located in the northern section of the property. Final assays are pending for three drill-holes completed in this area.
