VVC Exploration to Resume Trading

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - VVC Exploration Corporation ("VVC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:VVC) is pleased to announce that, further to its news release of April 12, 2013 ("Initial News Release"), the Company has filed the required preliminary documents with the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") in connection with the execution of a non-binding letter of intent with Camex Mining Development Group Inc. ("Camex") (the "Letter of Intent"), pursuant to which, the Company intends to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Camex, in exchange for the issuance of 59,900,000 common shares of VVC at closing, subject to adjustments, if any, as mutually agreed upon based on due diligence. Accordingly, the TSX-V has confirmed that the Company's stock halt will be lifted. The Company expects trading to resume at market open on Thursday, May 2, 2013.

In addition, the Company wishes to correct some minor inaccuracies in the Initial News Release concerning the principal assets of Camex. As such, the following is the amended and restated language with respect to the Samalayuca and Escondida properties in northern Mexico:

"Camex was incorporated in 2010 and is in the business of developing mineral resources primarily in Mexico. The principal assets of Camex are the Samalayuca and Escondida properties in northern Mexico. Samalayuca is located in Chihuahua State, approximately 35 km south of the Juarez, Mexico/El Paso, Texas area. The Samalayuca Property comprises the Kaity claim covering 1623 hectares and exposing a stratiform sedimentary copper deposit over a mineralized zone of at least 5 km. Camex owns 33.75% of the Samalayuca Property with another 25% owned by Firex, S. A. de C. V., a mining engineering company planning a $7M pilot plant, which could generate cash flow when in production.

Escondida is located in Sonora State, approximately 226 km south of Tucson, Arizona and 120 km NNE of the capital of Hermosillo, Mexico. It is an epizonal gold‐silver deposit, with three major mineralized structures, covering 178 hectares. The Escondida Property has shown interesting grade values of silver and gold in surface grab samples."
