Vior Cuts 4.1 g/t Au Over 5.0 Metres

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 19, 2007) - Vior (TSX VENTURE:VIO)(FRANKFURT:VL5) is releasing the final series of drill results from last winter's drilling program carried out on its wholly owned Douay Project, located 60 kilometres south of Mattagami, North-western Quebec. Six exploration holes drilled in the Douay West and the Main Zone areas are being reported (Figure 1). The best drill intersection returned 4.1 g/t Au over 5.0 metres (D-133). Detailed results are contained in Table 1, Note A.

Douay West Sector

Two drill holes were recently completed on the Douay West Zone (Figure 2). The most significant results were provided by drill hole D-133 which tested a sparingly explored zone located West of the deposit, 220 metres at depth. This drill hole confirmed the continuity of the mineralization with assays of 4.1 g/t Au over 5.0 metres. The second drill hole (D-132) tested the Douay West gold system at a depth of 225 metres East of the gold system but encountered gold values below 1 g/t Au.

Main Zone Sector

Four drill holes were completed on the Main Zone to verify the extensions and continuity of this gold zone. The better intersections were encountered in drill hole DO-07-31 which tested the gold zone 75 metres beneath and West of drill hole 54483 which had returned 7.1 g/t Au over 13.2 metres. Drill hole DO-07-31 encountered two different gold zones, the first one returning 3.6 g/t Au over 2.0 metres and the second one assaying 1.3 g/t Au over 11.4 metres. The second mineralized intersection coincides spatially with the Main Zone whereas the extensions of the first structure remain unknown.

Other drill results from drill holes DO-07-30 and DO-07-32 are presented in Table 1 while the location of the drill intersections are shown on Figure 3.

New 3D Geological Model and New Mineral Inventory

Recently Vior carried out 3D geological modelization work on all of its Douay and Douay West properties to further define new exploration targets and new sectors at depth. To begin with, Vior's technical team will focus on a systematic lithogeochemical sampling and the geological review of several drill holes completed before 1997. The lithogeochemnical analysis results and the new geological descriptions will then be integrated in the drilling database of the project. From this database, more than 200 drill sections will be created and will serve to the production of the 3D model. Simultaneously, a more specific study on the hydrothermal alteration associated with the Douay gold system will also begin in August.

As mentioned earlier, Geostat Systems International Inc. is currently completing a new mineral inventory for the Douay project. This independent study will include all previous drilling carried out in 2006 and 2007. Results of this NI 43-101 compliant technical report will be available later this year.

Depending on the preliminary results of the 3D modelization and on the Geostat report recommendations, other drilling is forecast in the fall of 2007. The final results of the hydrothermal alteration study on the Douay gold system are expected in the spring of 2008.

Douay Project

Since 1986, Vior and its previous partners have discovered six distinct gold bearing zones within an 8-kilometer 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-kilometer 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 meters are sent 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 growing mining company focused on acquiring and developing high quality, low risk gold and base metal resource prospects in accessible mining areas of Quebec. 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 prime locations. The Company is aggressively pursuing opportunities to develop working interests in mineral properties that offer significant upside exploration potential. CVRD Inco Limited is the largest shareholder of Vior with a 12% interest.
