Trade Winds Reports Assays from Previously Unsampled Core from its Drilling Campaigns

Vancouver, BC, February 3, 2011- Trade Winds Ventures Inc. (TSX-V: TWD, FSE: TVR) is pleased to announce the initial results from the sampling program of unassayed core from previous drilling programs in and near the M Zone deposit pit shell on Block A, which is located adjacent to Detour Gold�s Detour Lake gold project in northeastern Ontario that now contains mineral reserves of 14.9 million ounces of gold. The Joint Venture partners (50% Trade Winds / 50% Detour Gold) have approved a program to assay core that was not previously sampled in previous drilling campaigns by Trade Winds. Trade Winds is the operator of the Joint Venture exploration program.

Sampling of Unassayed Core


Since the completion of the 2010 drill program, Trade Winds has undertaken a program of relocation and permanent storage of core and pulps, together with commencing sampling of up to 13,000 metres of previously drilled core in and near the pit shells that has not yet been sampled or assayed. The total sampling program consists of various sections of 141 previously drilled holes totaling 10,689 metres from 117 holes in Main Pit area and 2,660 metres from 24 drill holes in NWL area. This infill sampling work was on-going between September and December 2010 and will continue until completion as time and personnel permits.

Initial assay results have been received from approximately 70% of the 4,977 samples selected from the first 41 holes processed near or within the Main Pit and NWL areas. Prior to the infill sampling program, these sample segments represented zones that the block model identified as waste rock. These results will be incorporated into the Block A resource block model and will contribute to the next mineral resource update.

A significant number of results from the samples assayed have returned grades above the 0.4 grams/tonne Au cut-off grade of the current constrained open pit mineral resource estimate. The following table presents those samples that individually or as a composite assayed greater than the estimated average grade of 0.85 grams/tonne Au of the mineral resource.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (�QA/QC�) Program for Core Sampling

The Company has implemented a quality control program to ensure best practices in sampling, analysis and security of core samples. The drill core is first logged then sawn in half during the sampling process with half being retained for verification and reference purposes. During sample collection and assaying, there is an established QC procedure which includes the insertion into the sample stream of standard reference samples, sample duplicates and blank samples, including the insertion of blank samples after all samples with visible gold.

The samples are delivered direct to Activation Laboratories Ltd. (ActLabs) preparation facility in Timmins, Ontario by Trade Winds personnel. The samples are analyzed for gold using the ActLabs procedure 1A2-50, which is a 50 g fire assay with AA finish. Samples returning greater than 3 g/t Au are automatically processed using a fire assay-gravimetric finish. Total metallic assays for gold were also performed on selected intervals. All samples assayed by ActLabs include a standard multi-element ICP package.

The coarse rejects are kept in Timmins for re-assaying purposes for a period of six months and then returned to the Trade Winds site for long term storage. Selected coarse rejects are check assayed by third party laboratories other than ActLabs.

Forward Looking Information

Certain information included in this news release constitutes "forward-looking statements". The words "expect", "will", "intend", "estimate" and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that, while considered reasonable by management, are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies. Trade Winds cautions the reader that such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Trade Winds to be materially different from Trade Winds� estimated future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by those forward-looking statements and the forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. These risks, uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, risks associated with the mining industry such as government regulation, environmental and reclamation risks, title disputes or claims, success of mining activities, future commodity prices, costs of production, possible variation in mineral reserves, mineral resources, grade or recovery rates, failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated, accidents, labour disputes, the timing of estimated future production, capital expenditures, financial market fluctuations, requirements for additional capital, conclusions of economic evaluations, limitations on insurance coverage, risks associated with using third-party contractors and inflation. Trade Winds disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources

This news release uses the terms 'indicated' and 'inferred' resources. Trade Winds advises investors that although these terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations (under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects), the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, 'inferred resources' have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, or economic studies except for Preliminary Assessment as defined under 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.

Neither TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
