TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 29, 2013) - Duran Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURES:DRV)(BVL:DRV) ("Duran" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the initiation of a Diamond drilling program at the Company's 100% owned Aguila Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum Project in Ancash, Peru. Explo Drilling Peru S.R.L has been contracted and drilling is expected to commence early in February.

This phase of drilling will focus in the Aguila central pit area where previous drilling intersected numerous, significant intersections of copper and molybdenum. The objective of this drill program is to expand the higher grade measured and indicated resource previously announced by the Company (See Company's news release dated March 8th, 2012). The following table summarizes SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc.'s ("SRK") Inferred and Indicated Resource at the Aguila Project:

* Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. All figures have been rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimates. Open pit mineral resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.22 percent copper equivalent and underground mineral resources are reported at a cut-off grade of 0.26 percent for copper equivalent. Copper equivalent grades are based on averaged metallurgical recoveries of 87 percent copper and 88 percent for molybdenum and metal prices assumptions of US$2.85 per pound of copper and US$13.85 per pound of molybdenum.

The Company's drill plans are designed to expand the existing Indicated Resource by infill and adjacent drilling proximal to this core of Indicated Resource. The drill program is expected to reclassify this adjacent material presently classified as an Inferred Resource as determined by SRK. Much of the higher grade intersections in the pit area start at, or are close to surface.

Initially, drilling will test mineralization east of the intercept in AGD-016, returning from surface 396 metres of 0.69% Cu and 0.042% Mo. Furthermore, previous drill results north of the SRK indicated resource show numerous high grade intercepts contained within the surrounding Inferred Resource. Drilling in this area is expected to upgrade the quality of the resource.

Access to drill sites in this initial phase is considered excellent and weather will not affect the completion of the drill program. Further drilling on the extensive Aguila property will be considered after review of results from these five holes.
