(businesspress24) - TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 08/31/11 -- Belo Sun Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE: BSX) (the "Company" or "Belo Sun") is pleased to announce assay results for 22 additional drill holes from the diamond drilling program at its Volta Grande Gold Project located in Para State, Brazil, including the discovery of a new high grade extension at the Grota Seca Deposit. The results include assays from 14 drill holes from the Grota Seca deposit, seven drill holes from the Ouro Verde deposit and one from the South Block target. The complete results and cross sections are presented in Table 1 below.

Highlights include:

As part of the ongoing drill program at Volta Grande, Belo Sun has completed a total of 187 drill holes (48,167m), of which assays remain pending for 56 holes. The current drilling program is designed to upgrade and expand the existing mineral resource estimate and further results will be released as they become available.

The geological map of the Volta Grande Gold Project, with diagrams setting out the main deposit locations, is included below.

Mark Eaton, the President and CEO for Belo Sun, stated, "With ten diamond drill rigs operating we expect that we will complete the infill drilling program by the end of September. Once the infill drilling is complete, we will then focus all 10 diamond drill rigs on expanding the deposits. At present the Ouro Verde Deposit remains open along strike to the northwest and the Grota Seca Deposit is open along strike to the East, both deposits continue at depth. We are particularly excited to drill additional holes in the area of the newly identified high grade mineralization on the east side of the Grota Seca deposit."


The widths reported below represent the core width of the intercepts; true widths are expected to range between 85-95% of the core width.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

The scientific and technical information in this press release has been reviewed and approved by David Gower, P. Geo., an advisor to Belo Sun and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The exploration program is directly supervised by Mr. Carlos Cravo, P. Geo., Belo Sun's exploration manager. Belo Sun's procedures for handling drill core comprise initial description and logging into a Microsoft Access database. Mineralized, suspected mineralized or not intervals in the drill holes are described in detail and marked for sampling. Core is then cut in half with the right-hand portion of the core put into plastic sample bags and sealed. The left-hand portion is returned to the core box and is stored for future reference or study. Assay standard and "Blank" samples are inserted every 20th sample. These samples are then delivered to ACME Labs sample preparation facility at the Volta Grande Gold Project site. The assay samples are then fine-crushed to better than 85% passing 10 mesh screens, with an assay pulp split of up to 1000 grams pulverized to better than 80% passing 200 mesh screen. Samples are assayed at ACME Labs in Santiago, Chile, using a 50 gram fire assay with AAS finish. These QA/QC procedures provide several measures of data quality and assure the Company that the assay data is representative of the original sample.
