VVC Exploration Completes Drilling on Santa Valeria Property, Mexico

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 19, 2009) - VVC EXPLORATION CORPORATION (TSX VENTURE:VVC)(FRANKFURT:V7S)(BERLIN:V7S) ("VVC" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the diamond drilling program on the Santa Valeria Ag-Pb-Zn property, located in south central Chihuahua state has been completed.

Seven drill holes totalling 1021 metres were drilled. The zone was drilled over a 200-metre strike length along the Veta 1 and 2 veins in the vicinity of the old shafts and pits, as previously announced on March 11 and 25, 2009. Six of the seven holes cut the mineralized breccia vein zone over an average thickness of 20 metres. Hole 4 was abandoned for technical reasons prior to reaching the zone. The breccia contains subangular, centimetre-size fragments of igneous origin and is associated with hematization, silicification and argillization. Vein mineralization within the brecciated zone includes siderite, barite and calcite, the same mineralization noted in the surface pits and underground workings. Assay results are pending and will be reported on a timely basis, along with any other pertinent information. Plans for additional work will be developed following a review of the compiled results generated by the Phase 1 drilling.

The technical aspects of this news release were reviewed by Peter Dimmell, P.Geo., a director of VVC, who is a Qualified Person (QP) as defined in National Instrument 43-101.
