VIPR Industries Reports Positive Grab Sampling Results From Phase I Exploration of Its Singida Gold Property

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 11, 2008) - VIPR Industries Inc. (PINK SHEETS:VIPR)(FRANKFURT:VIN) ("VIPR") is pleased to report that grab samples taken from its Singida Gold Property have returned positive assay results of up to 4.86 grams of gold per tonne. Initial results from the Phase I surface sampling program confirm gold mineralization on VIPR's Singida Gold Property warranting further exploration.

Surface sampling conducted as part of the Phase I exploration program at VIPR's Singida Gold Property has identified anomalous gold values. Fifty (50) rock and soil samples were taken every 50 meters from east to west and every 500 meters from north to south for a square kilometer of widely spaced sampling. The Southern and Eastern African Mineral Centre of Tanzania utilized the fire assay method to confirm gold mineralization in the majority of the samples, including one that returned a gold assay result of 4.86 grams per tonne. A diagram detailing the location and results of the report can be viewed at the company's website or by Clicking Here. A more detailed report on the results will be posted shortly.

Mr. Mike Gerstner, President & CEO of VIPR Industries, commented: "These positive sampling results are the latest of several highly promising indicators of our Singida Gold Property's potential to host an economically significant resource base. Our concessions lie directly adjacent to and along strike from Shanta Gold Limited's Singida Project where initial exploration drilling has identified an indicated resource of 543,000 ounces of gold worth an estimated $500 million. Third-party aerial magnetic surveys have highlighted possible gold anomaly hot zones and drill targets on our property. And small-scale operations by local artisan miners indicate ore grade gold mineralization on the surface."

Mr. Gerstner continued: "Based on these factors VIPR believes additional exploration of the Singida Gold Property's potential is warranted. We are gearing up to move into the next phase of exploration, preparing a strategy and budget for our discussions with potential investors and partners. We are extremely pleased with the project's initial results and believe our Singida operations will have a major impact on the company's growth."

On July 28, 2008 VIPR announced the closing of its acquisition of the Singida Gold Property in Tanzania's Singida Gold Belt from Kinti Group who has a portfolio of quality assets and expertise that VIPR can leverage. The Singida Gold Property concessions are currently undergoing the formal title change process at Tanzania's Ministry of Energy and Minerals. Tanzania has become one of the fastest emerging gold producers in Africa, and is now the continent's third largest gold-producing country after South Africa and Ghana, possessing a fair and just British style judicial system. Tanzania hosts several world class mines including Anglogold Ashanti's 27 million ounce Geita Mine which produced 327,000 ounces in 2007. Barrick Gold operates three mines and advanced projects with reserves of more than 19.2 million ounces.
