VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 3, 2012) - Orsa Ventures Corp. ("Orsa" or the "Company") (News - Market indicators) announced today that the Company has received encouraging results from a Phase II trenching and sampling program at its Coal Canyon Property ("Coal Canyon"), near Lovelock in Pershing County, Nevada.

Coal Canyon is located near other sediment-hosted gold deposits such as Relief Canyon, Willard and Colado in the Oreana Trend where over 10 million ounces has been discovered since 2009. The Phase II program involved cutting new roads 400 feet to the southeast of the original discovery zone and sampling outcrop in the road cut. Chip-channel samples from five to ten feet in length taken from outcrop in the road cut returned a weighted average value of 0.023 ounces per ton ("opt") Au over 152 feet (0.72 grams per ton (gpt) Au over 46.3 metres). The maximum value was 0.069 opt (2.15 gpt) and the minimum was 0.007 opt (0.236 gpt).

The new roads were designed to follow extensions of a previously reported gold zone averaging 0.015 opt Au over 142 feet (0.52 gpt Au over 43.3 metres) (Orsa news release dated May 1, 2012). The two gold zones are contained within a northeast-trending zone of anomalous gold values of up to 0.092 opt Au (3.2 gpt Au) that is 5,800 feet long and up to 500 feet wide (1,767 by 152 metres respectively.) The larger gold zone also contains arsenic values up to 1,000 ppm and antimony values up to 3,000 ppm.

Surface indications of similar rock types and alteration continue to the southeast of the new road cut and to the northwest of the original trench. Gold mineralization is hosted in strongly altered calcareous siltstones and limestones of the Auld Lang Syne Group. Dikes showing intense quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration are also associated with the gold mineralization.

Orsa plans to extend the Phase II road building and sampling program to better define the extent of the new gold discovery in preparation for a drill program.
