Dia Bras Exploration Inc. (DIB.V) announced that its in-fill drilling programme designed to increase the resource categories of the Antacaca, Rosaura and Catas orebodies at the Yauricocha mine in Peru is yielding "positive results delineating longer strike lengths of orebodies and connections of some of orebodies at depth." Twenty-two diamond holes have been drilled in the Antacaca-Rosaura orebody and thirteen holes have been drilled at the Catas orebody. These deposits are within the Central Mine Area where the company's mining is focused.

Press Release Highlights:

- Eight of the thirteen drill holes in the Catas orebody returned significant results and eighteen of the twenty-two drill holes in the Antacaca-Rosaura orebodies also returned significant results.

- At Catas, drilling shows that zones that had not been known to be mineralized are continuously mineralized with a combination of copper-type and polymetallic-type areas, making the Catas orebody possibly over 160 meters in strike length, while its limits still remain open at depth.

- At Antacaca-Rosaura, the drill pattern of successful holes shows that these bodies merge at depth and create a single orebody over 200 meters in strike length, which is mainly of the polymetallic type. The limits of these orebodies also remain open to depth.

- Exploration outside the immediate Yauricocha mine area has begun.

- A magnetic and induced polarization survey is in progress along the Yauricocha Fault. Geologic mapping and sampling were also started in mid-July.

- Drilling of the Adrico gold area is scheduled for early August.
