Gold Stocks News;  Lake Victoria  (OTCBB:LVCA) Reports Encouraging Gold Assays From Singida-Londoni Gold Project, Tanzania


GOLDEN, COLORADO--(http://www.investors.com/  gold and mining stocks )  - Oct. 13, 2010 - Lake Victoria Mining Company, Inc. ("Lake Victoria" or the "Company") (OTCBB:LVCA) is pleased to report initial drill results from the Sambaru 3, 4 and 5 prospect areas within the Singida-Londoni gold project, Tanzania. Drill intercepts include: 13.91 g/t Au over 4 meters; 16.80g/t Au over 2 meters; 23.6g/t Au over 1 meter; 4.14g/t Au over 5 meters and 1.15 g/t Au over 21 meters.  A number of higher grade zones are included in these intervals and are listed in Table 1; a tabulation of the new results is expected to be posted in the near future on the Lake Victoria corporate website.

g/t = grams/metric tonne; Au is the chemical symbol for gold.
The mineralized interval represents the length of the drill hole intercept, and is not the true horizontal width of the mineralized structure.
These initial results, represent a total of 3,600 meters of recently completed reverse circulation drilling from within three of five target areas, and the results demonstrate the presence of high grade, narrow gold-rich zones from the central to the northwestern part of the five kilometer long Singida-Londoni gold project area.
Roger Newell, Ph.D. and Chairman of the Board, said, "I am very pleased that these 13 drill holes have found high grade gold below the artisanal workings, and I am confident that many of the remaining holes will continue to report important gold assays. This kind of early drill success is very unusual in a brand new gold project, and Clive King, our Qualified Person and his geological team are doing an excellent of job of finding the ore controls in this large, complex and exciting gold property. While we are anxious to learn about additional assay results from holes that have already been drilled, it appears we are embarking upon a whole new greenstone belt and a related exploration/mining area in Tanzania."
Sambaru 3 Target Zone
At Sambaru 3, at least four mineralized zones have been intercepted on one drill fence (News Release – 7th September 2010). These four zones have been partly traced to the corresponding drill fences over a strike length of about 160 meters.
Sambaru 4 Target Zone
At Sambaru 4, drill results from immediately west of the active artisanal mine area (News Release – 28th September 2010) indicate that the main 2 to 4 meter wide artisanal mining zone averaging 2.41g/t Au has now been traced for some 120 meters along strike. This main zone appears to also be present along strike to the northwest at a distance of about 620 meters within the central part of Sambaru 4. Drilling has also traced two additional mineralized zones along a strike distance of about 160 meters. The best intersection of 37.30g/t Au over 1 meter was within in a 4 meter wide, massive arsenopyrite gold-bearing sulphide zone that averaged 13.91g/t Au within the central Sambaru 4 target area.
Sambaru 5 Target Zone
At Sambaru 5, in the northwestern part of the licence area, one borehole averaged 16.80g/t Au over 2 meters within a narrow zone of arsenopyrite. The mineralized intercepts in Sambaru 3, 4 and 5 occur less than 70 meters below surface.
A planned 1,000 meter drill program is currently underway at the Sambaru 2 target which is the largest location of artisanal workings within the licence area.
Preliminary positive visual drill results are reported from the drill site and include geological rock observations and gold panned minerals from a number of drill samples within the central artisanal mine area; additional information concerning this drill program is planned to be provided in the near future.
Analytical work is being carried out at the independent SGS Laboratories in Mwanza, Tanzania. The drill samples are subject to full sample preparation followed by a 50 gram fire assay with an AA finish. Blanks (5%), commercial standards (5%) and duplicates (5%) are being used in each sample batch of 20 samples to monitor laboratory performance during the analysis. Samples submitted either represent 4 meters composite samples of 1 meter intervals or 1 meter samples where on site logging and panning of the RC chips indicates the presence of visible gold or gold-bearing sulphides.
The reader is cautioned that the potential quantity and grade of the regional exploration target is conceptual in nature; it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the exploration target being delineated as a mineral resource and there is no guarantee that these resources, if delineated, will be economic or sufficient to support a commercial mining operation. The Company's production objectives are intended to provide an indication of management's current expectations and are still conceptual in nature. It is uncertain that it will be established that these resources will be converted into economically viable mining reserves. Until a feasibility study has been completed, there is no certainty that these objectives will be met.
