    Diversified Australian based mineral exploration company Venture Minerals Limited (ASX: VMS) has
    confirmed its intention to fast track further diamond drilling at the Churchill Dam project in South
    Australia following the initial success of recent diamond drilling at the project.
    This initial drilling consisted of two diamond drill holes drilled approximately 1.7km apart, with both
    holes confirming the presence of substantial zones of altered Gawler Range Volcanics (GRV) which are
    the preferred host rocks. The company believes the brecciation and alteration style intersected in the
    first two holes to be consistent with mineralised Iron-oxide-Copper-Gold-Uranium (“IOCGU”)
    systems within the Olympic Dam IOCGU province of South Australia.
    Following the recent completion of these holes, and the initial results received, Venture has decided to
    undertake a significant diamond drill campaign, of at least four holes, in the coming months. The
    company expects to confirm a drill contractor in the coming weeks and commence the drill campaign
    shortly after.
    “When looking for a major mineralised deposit, we need a detailed understanding of geology and the
    alteration system to increase the probability of success,“ Venture Minerals Andrew Radonjic said.
    “We do this by identifying a significant gravity anomaly, then confirming the presence of the preferred
    host rocks and alteration style, before lastly ensuring that the type of mineralisation and grade is
    suitable to the confirmation of a substantial economic resource.”
    “Prior to listing we had identified that the Churchill Dam project was not only in an area recognised for
    its potential for a major mineral deposit, but contained an interesting gravity anomaly.
    “This latest drilling has confirmed the presence of the preferred host rocks and the impending assay
    results will provide further detail as to the mineralisation. Success to date on the project demands
    more drilling, consequently we are fast tracking the follow-up drill program, as this will provide us with
    a greater understanding of the mineral potential of the project.
    In addition, the Company has now committed to extend its detailed ground based geophysical survey to
    cover the entire 17km long, regional anomaly, in order to delineate additional drill targets within the
    interpreted caldera structure. This is expected to start next month (see attached map).

    Assay results from the recent drilling are currently being processed, with results expected in the coming
    weeks. These will be advised to the market when received.
    Venture Mineral’s Churchill Dam Project is well situated within the Olympic Dam IOCGU province,
    approximately 95km west of the recently discovered Carrapateena Prospect, 100km northwest of the
    recently discovered Punt Hill Prospect and 90km southwest of the world class Olympic Dam Mine.

    Editor’s notes
    Venture Minerals is an Australian diversified explorer with high quality energy and minerals projects,
    including uranium, nickel and gold in Western Australia, copper-gold-uranium in South Australia and tintungsten
    and nickel in Tasmania.
    Churchill Dam sits within the Olympic Dam province of the Gawler Craton. It is approximately 75km
    southwest of the Olympic Dam-Wirrda Well-Acropolis group which is dominated by the world class
    Olympic Dam deposit. Olympic Dam is currently the world’s 17th largest copper and third largest
    uranium producer. Churchill Dam is also 95km west of the recently discovered Carrapateena prospect
    and 100km northwest of the recently discovered Punt Hill prospect.
    Other projects
    The Maitland Channel uranium project in Western Australia has potential for the discovery of calcretehosted
    Uranium mineralisation. The Renison West project in Tasmania is targeting tin and tungsten
    mineralisation in skarn host rocks.
    The Paulsens South project in Western Australia is prospective for gold discoveries - and the Maitland
    Channel and Renison West projects also have potential to host nickel sulphide mineralisation.
