Vior Cuts 15.7 g/t Au Over 1 Metre

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 29, 2007) - Vior (TSX VENTURE:VIO) is releasing a second series of drill results from its current winter drilling program being carried out on the Douay project, located 60 kilometres south of Matagami, North-western Quebec. Six exploration holes drilled in the 5-4 South and North Zone area are being reported (See Figure 1 at the following address: The best drill intersections returned: 15.7 g/t Au over 1 metre (DO-07-19), 6.4 g/t Au over 1 metre (DO-07-19) and 1.6 g/t Au over 10 metres (DO-07-22).

5-4 South and North Zones

The best results of this current drilling program were encountered in drill hole DO-07-19 which verified the extension of the 5-4 South Zone, 50 metres north-northeast of a drill intersection that previously returned 8.7 g/t Au over 5.5 metres (See Figure 2 at the following address: This drill hole also tested the extension of the 5-4 North Zone, 50 metres east of the high grade intersection that returned 2888 g/t au over 0.5 metres (See Figure 3 at the following address: Drill hole DO-07-19 intercepted the mineralized zones at anticipated depths and returned 6.4 g/t au over 1 metre in the 5-4 South Zone and 15.7 g/t Au over 1 metre in the 5-4 North Zone.

Drill hole DO-07-22 verified, 50 metres at depth and to the east, an extension of the 5-4 North Zone that previously returned 6.0 g/t Au over 4 metres. A 10 metre core section returned 1.6 g/t Au.

Other results from drill holes DO-07-17, DO-07-18, DO-07-20 and DO-07-21 are shown on Table 1 and the location of the mineralized sections are shown on Figures 2 and 3. Additional results from drill holes DO-07-23 to DO-07-27, also located near the extensions of the 5-4 North and South Zones will be available in the near future.

Current Drilling at Douay West

The winter drilling program has now shifted to the Douay West area to verify several targets at depth and in the proximity of the known mineralized zones.

Douay Project

Since 1986, Vior and its previous partners have discovered six distinct gold bearing zones within an 8-kilometre segment of the Douay project, including the Douay West Zone which contains an indicated resource of 515,000 tonnes at 5.94 g/t Au and an inferred resource of 529,000 tonnes at 5.43 g/t Au, the Main Zone with an inferred resource of 300,000 tonnes at 4.8 g/t Au, the 531 Zone with an inferred resource of 730,000 tonnes at 4.9 g/t Au and three porphyry zones. (NI 43-101 - Geostat Systems International Inc., 2005). The Douay property is accessible by a 5-kilometre gravel road from regional Highway 109, joining the towns of Amos and Matagami. The surface infrastructures at Douay West include a mechanical shop, offices, a dry, a compressor room, an electrical station, a shaft and a hoist.

Quality Control

Drilling on the Douay and Douay West properties is supervised by Vice-President of Exploration and Acquisitions, Marco Gagnon, P.Geo. and Denis Chenard, Eng. Mr. Gagnon and Mr. Chenard are the Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Core lengths throughout this press release are measured along the core axis and do not necessarily represent true widths.

Vior has instigated a control and analytical quality assurance protocol for its gold exploration programs. This procedure includes the systematic addition of blank samples and certified standards to approximately each ten batch samples sent for gold analysis at commercial laboratories. Blank samples are used to check for possible contamination in laboratories while certified standards determine the analytical accuracy and precision. Analyzed samples coming from half cut NQ cores and with lengths varying from 1 to 1.5 metres are sent for analysis to Laboratoire Expert Inc. in Rouyn-Noranda. Samples are assayed by fire-assay followed by atomic absorption or gravimetry according to industry standards. Moreover, 10% of all samples taken from significant mineralized sections were sent to a second laboratory to verify the analytical reproducibility.


Vior is a Quebec-based exploration company whose strategy is to explore and develop gold and base metal properties in proven and accessible mining areas in Canada. The Company wholly owns the Douay West gold project which is at a pre-feasibility stage and other gold and base metal exploration interests in some of the best mining areas of Quebec. CVRD Inco Limited is the largest shareholder of Vior with a 12% interest.
