Reforma Sampling Results of 231 g/tonne of Silver, 14.12% Zinc

VANCOUVER, BC – Victory Resources Corp. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the initial results on their ongoing underground work program conducted on the Company’s La Reforma property located north of Choix, Sinaloa State, Mexico.

The results of initial underground sampling at the La Reforma project have been received. The samples were collected from channels cut across vein material in skarn at the 690 level. From 29 samples taken along the drift over a length of 80 metres show weighted average values as follows:

Silver: 231.48 grams per tonne
Copper: 0.84% tonne
Lead: 6.00% tonne
Zinc: 14.12% tonne

Level 690 was also the site of limited stoping. In addition to the samples taken along the drift, samples were also taken from accessible faces in the stopes bringing the total number of samples to 44. The weighted average values of all samples taken from Level 690 to date are as follows:

Silver: 183.00 grams per tonne
Copper: 0.73%/ tonne
Lead: 4.32%/ tonne
Zinc: 10.94%/ tonne

It should be pointed out that samples taken in the stoping area are not regularly spaced due to difficulty of access. Further sampling will require the use of ladders. Level 690 has an estimated back (height) of 20m.

This initial underground sampling is part of a continuing program of the company evaluate the resource potential of the La Reforma property. Additional sampling is planned for the lower levels at Level 680, Level 650 and Level 620 over a cumulative strike length of 350m and average backs (height) of some 60m. These levels are presently accessible through existing portals. This sampling program will be augmented by surface and underground diamond drilling. Underground drilling stations can be constructed at minimum cost.

“We are very encouraged by the consistent results from the underground sampling especially over a significant length of 80 metres,” stated Wally Boguski, President and CEO. “The company will continue to advance the planned drilling and sampling work programs. These results have demonstrated the same highly anomalous results for Copper, Silver, Zinc and Lead as previous historic results and bring the company a significant step closer to the goal of determining a resource estimate.”

Victory Resources Corp. Update on the Work Program on the Reforma Property

VANCOUVER, BC – Victory Resources Corp. (the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the current drill program on the Reforma property.

The most recent drill hole on the La Reforma that encountered significant mineralization was RDH 11 which intersected a zone from 198.12m to 207.87m of galena, sphalerite and chalcopyrite in skarn. Drill core samples were sent to ALS Chemex in Hermosillo, Mexico for analysis.

The current surface drill program is to explore for geological extensions of the main La Reforma structure particularly at depth. In connection with the overall exploration program of La Reforma the company expects to announce shortly assay results of underground sampling of sulfide bearing skarn in old drifts, sub-levels and stoping areas that has recently become accessible. The ongoing work programs are intended to outline the vein system to the South as well as to the North of the main structure.

“The main objective of the current exploration program is to define a mineral resource of substantial scale to justify a preliminary economic assessment,” stated Wally Boguski, President and CEO, “We are very encouraged that the results previously announced demonstrate highly anomalous results.”

The La Reforma Property was operated by Penoles Industries SA de CV between the years 1968 to 1980. During this period of lower metal prices, the La Reforma mine processed 1.8 million tons of complex ore grading an average of 91.62 grams per ton Ag, 1.90%, Pb, 7.44% Zn and 0.63% Cu.

Pershing Gold Completes Work Commitment on Private Land and Mining Claims

LAKEWOOD, Colo., July 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pershing Gold Corporation (OTCBB:PGLC) announces that since acquiring a lease agreement with Newmont USA Ltd. (NYSE:NEM) in April 2012 for private lands and mining claims adjacent to the Relief Canyon Mine, the Company has spent approximately $1.4 million to drill 23 core holes on private lands and to perform geophysical surveys on private lands and mining claims leased from Newmont. These expenditures fulfill Pershing Gold’s 2012 annual work commitment to Newmont. Management believes that this work accomplished two key objectives: 1) to advance the Relief Canyon Mine towards resuming production; and 2) to explore and make new discoveries on Pershing Gold’s landholdings surrounding the Mine. In 2012 Pershing Gold has spent a total of $3.3 million, including the $1.4 spent to fulfill the work commitment, on exploration and development to further these objectives.

Drilling has extended the mineralization to the west of the Southwest Pit. Drilling results for the first 12 holes of the Phase II 2012 drilling program were released earlier this month (See press release dated July 12, 2012); results are pending for the remaining 11 holes. This drilling, and a portion of the Company’s geophysical surveys, were completed on lands subject to the Area of Interest (“AOI”) that were acquired in the transaction closed April 5, 2012 with Victoria Gold Corp. (TSX-V:VIT-V) and Newmont (See press release dated April 13, 2012). Pershing Gold Management expects this drilling effort to increase the resource at the Relief Canyon Mine.

A map featuring Pershing Gold’s land holdings is available at:http://media.globenewswire.com/cache/19459/file/14686.pdf.

Because the expenditures incurred for the Phase II 2012 drilling program and geophysical surveys have satisfied and exceeded the 2012 work commitment under the Newmont lease, Pershing Gold has applied the remaining credit amount towards its 2013 work commitment.

“Exceeding our 2012 work commitment has advanced our progress towards completing our 2013 work commitment,” said Stephen Alfers, Pershing Gold’s Executive Chairman and CEO. “Now that we’ve satisfied the work commitment, our geologic team plans to pursue compelling targets that we have identified on lands controlled by Pershing Gold outside of the Area of Interest.”

Outside of the AOI, Pershing Gold controls a 100% interest in 1,100 acres at the Relief Canyon Mine owned by Pershing Gold’s subsidiary Gold Acquisition Corporation, and 13,500 acres of wholly-owned claims in the Pershing Pass area south of the Relief Canyon Mine.

Geophysical surveys identified several areas on these other lands that may contain buried targets that merit drilling. The Company has drilled one such target at the Pershing Packard Project located near Pershing Gold’s northern property boundary and the border shared in common with neighboring Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation (NYSE:CDE) and (TSX:CDM). Preliminary examination of the core reveals intervals of mineralized and altered sedimentary and metavolcanic rocks. The Company believes that the alteration and mineralization observed are typical of the styles found in producing mines and known deposits in the Humboldt Range near the Relief Canyon Mine property. Detailed logging of core samples and assay results are pending.

Victory Resources Corp. Completes the Drill Program on the Tailings Pond

VANCOUVER, BC – Victory Resources Corp. (Symbol VR-TSXV, OTCQX: VRCFF) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed the 2nd and final stage of the drill program at the Altamira tailings pond located at the Reforma mine.

The drill program was conducted on two tailings ponds known as the Matanza and the Altamira. The drill program completed on the Matanza tailings pond consisted of 46 drill holes with depths ranging from 2 meters to 10.9 meters for a total of 291 meters. The drill program completed on the Altamira tailings pond consisted of 10 drill holes with depths ranging from 2 meters to 7.5 meters for a total of 38 meters. The company is now preparing a representation bulk sample from each tailings pond to be submitted for mineralogical studies and metallurgical tests to determine the viability of re-processing the material.

Previous production at the Reforma mine involved the recovery mainly by flotation of chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite. Significant values of Silver (AG) ranging from 10 grams to greater than 250 grams were recovered with the sulphides. Gold was a minor component. Magnetite which comprised a significant portion of the complex ore was not recovered.

“The completion of the drill program at the tailings ponds is an important milestone in determining the near term economic potential.” stated Wally Boguski, President and CEO. “The scenario of an immediately viable resource in the tailings pond could represent an opportunity for the company to access capital for the  current development of the Reforma mine.”
