Lara to Acquire the Tocantins Gold Project in Brazil

--( - ) - ('Lara' or the 'Company') (TSX VENTURE:LRA) is pleased to announce that it has signed an Agreement with Brazil Americas Investments & Participation Mineração Ltda. ('Brazil Americas'), to acquire the , located close to the town of Conceição do Tocantins, in . Under the terms of the Agreement, Lara will assume the project costs going forward and will pay Brazil Americas 50% of any proceeds from the eventual sale of the project to a third-party.

comprises a 9,103-hectare exploration license, covering Lower Proterozoic age greenstone lithologies that have been mined sporadically on a small scale since colonial times. ('Vale') carried out the first systematic exploration of the area in the 1990's, targeting gold associated with low-angle thrust faults and fold structures, completing 180 shallow reverse circulation drill holes (totalling 9,129 metres) outlining several near-surface gold occurrences. Further work undertaken more recently by a junior explorer, included twelve Diamond drill holes (totalling 1,731 metres). The best results from this program were intercepts of 2 metres at an average grade of 18.97 grams per tonne gold ('g/tAu') from drill hole TO-08 and 17 metres at 3.93 g/tAu, including 4 metres at 9.01 g/tAu and 2 metres at 11.05 g/tAu from drill hole TO-09. Table 1 below summarizes all the intercepts that assayed greater than one gram per tonne of gold.

The drill holes are orthogonal to the mineralization therefore the intercepts represent approximate true thicknesses

The mineralization intersected in this program is associated with sulphide and sometimes magnetite-rich quartz veining, in deformed mafic and felsic volcanics, which are usually masked at surface by younger lateritic cover.

Quality Control

The drill core was sampled at one-metre intervals and the samples shipped to the certified in () for Au assaying. Three different standards (all from in ) and duplicates were inserted after each 20 core samples, and blanks (also from ) were inserted at every 30 core samples. As part of the option with Brazil Americas, Lara has acquired the drill core from this program.
