TVI Philippines Exploration Update

February 07, 2007

Tamarok- Tapisa Results Indicate Potential for Extensive Copper-Gold Mineralization System

Priority Exploration Program Planned

- Reconnaissance work supports historical findings and discovers new prospects:

-- Malachite Hill prospect yielded 38 meters averaging 0.705% Cu and 0.35gpt Au

-- Silawa-Tigon Creek prospect yielded more than 110 meters averaging 0.3% Cu

- Geological surveys and drilling program slated for 2007

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 7, 2007) - TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX:TVI) (or the "Company") is pleased to announce that recent reconnaissance surveys, involving semi-detailed geological mapping and sampling over portions of the Tapisa and Tamarok tenement applications in the Northern Zamboanga Peninsula, Philippines, support previously reported historical findings and have identified additional copper and gold prospective occurrences.

Certain statements in this News Release are forward-looking statements, including statements respecting the Corporation's plans to pursue tenement applications covering the Tamarok and Tapisa exploration properties and expectations relating to additional exploration activities at Tamarok and Tapisa. Readers should refer to the cautionary statement that appears at the end of this News Release.

TVI Management believes that these early-stage results indicate that both properties have the potential to jointly host copper-gold porphyry deposits.

"In light of the positive results we're seeing from our preliminary exploration activities, the Company plans to pursue the Tamarok and Tapisa tenement applications on a priority basis," said Clifford James, President and CEO of TVI Pacific. "While we are encouraged by these developments, the existing results from the exploration program are preliminary and surface results only," he added. "Follow-up drilling is required to enable us to assess the continuity of the mineralization in all directions -and to enable us to start getting a handle on the potential of these areas."

The surveys were conducted by TVI's Philippine affiliate, TVI Resource Development (Phils.), Inc. ("TVIRD") on the western edge of the extensive, 34,749-ha Tapisa Tenement Application (AFTA-000013-IX) and the 486-ha Tamarok Tenement Application (APSA-000064-IX), as well as on the Dalman Claims that are under option to TVIRD. Readers are invited to refer to the Company's News Release of March 14, 2006, "TVI Commences Exploration Program on Tamarok and Tapisa", for details of the previous exploration work conducted on these properties.

The area is located 60 aerial kilometers NNE of TVI's Balabag project and 50 aerial kilometers SW of Dipolog City, Zamboanga del Norte.

Overall, TVIRD mapped 17.5 kilometers of drainage system and collected 314 rock/channel samples. Assay results from channel samples are consistent with and extend the historical results obtained on the Malachite Hill diorite outcrop. Sampling results over this prospect yielded 38 meters averaging 0.705% Cu and 0.35gpt Au. Recent exploration work also identified a number of new occurrences. The nearby Silawa-Tigon Creek area prospect has more than 110 meters of nearly contiguous channel sampling of dioritic outcrops averaging 0.3% Cu. The results of assays undertaken over significant intervals on these prospects are considered encouraging by management of the Company and indicate the potential for an extensive copper-gold porphyry system.

For maps showing the tenement and sample locations described in this news release, please visit the Company's website at http://tvi2014.q4web.com.

The Company is currently negotiating a Memorandum of Agreement with representatives of the indigenous communities in the area, under the Free Prior Informed Consent (FPIC) process, after which the Philippines' Mines and Geosciences Bureau will be in a position to complete the granting of the permits required to permit continued exploration. To the knowledge of the Company, there are no illegal miners operating in the area.

Once the permitting process is complete, TVIRD plans to carry out systematic detailed geological surveys, further delineate drill targets on surface and schedule a diamond drilling program commensurate with the ongoing results.

Technical Review

Mineralized dioritic intrusives and volcanic rocks have been traced over an area roughly 5km x 2km (10 square kilometers) in size, along outcrops and exposures encountered along creek banks, spurs and ridges. The principal occurrences were defined and identified as follows:

1. Kamaroy Creek: Mineralized Diorite Outcrop Area

2. Balobohan - Newlywed Creeks: Mineralized Diorite Outcrop Area

3. Malachite Hill-Sagukan Pait: Creek Mineralized Diorite Outcrop Area

4. Silawa Creek and Tigon Creek: Mineralized Diorite Outcrop Area

5. Tudlisan Creek: Mineralized Diorite Outcrop Area

6. Bree-Capinis: Diorite Dikes

7. Capinis Creek-Labawan Ridge: Clay-Silica-Pyrite Altered Rock Outcrops

A summary of assay values of the key channel samples over cumulative intervals is shown in Tables 1 to 4 below. Readers wishing to review the complete listing of sample details, procedures and results, please see "Tamarok Rock Samples.pdf" available for download accompanying this release.

properties is required to assess their potential for future development
and it is uncertain, at this time, that further exploration will result
in the discovery of mineral resources on either property
About TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX:TVI)

TVI Pacific Inc. is a publicly traded Canadian mining company focused on exploring for and producing precious and base metals within district scale systems in Asia.

In the Philippines, TVI's most advanced project, the Canatuan Mine, (the first foreign-invested, new, mining project in the Philippines in nearly four decades) began mining and milling operations in mid-2004, producing gold and silver dore. In 2006, TVI received a completed NI 43-101 feasibility study on the Canatuan Sulphide project prepared by Norwest Corporation (which has been filed with certain securities regulatory authorities in Canada and is available at the SEDAR website.) The Norwest study addresses the copper-zinc bearing massive sulphide zone, or lower portion of the Canatuan Deposit. Construction of the Sulphide Project at Canatuan is now underway. In addition, TVI holds a 2.5% NSR on the Philippine-based Rapu Rapu project operated by Lafayette Mining Ltd. Exploration in the Philippines is being conducted at Canatuan, in an effort to expand TVI's mineral resource base and to find new deposits, at Balabag and at other areas which management of TVI view as compelling exploration properties.

In China, TVI's wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary, Hunan Pacific Geological Exploration Inc. ("HPGEI"), was the first foreign mining company to be granted both WOFE status and a Qualified Explorer License. The exploration program in China is focused primarily within the Golden Triangle area, a highly prospective metallogenic region in China's south-western provinces of Yunnan, Guizhou and Guangxi Autonomous Region and prospective areas in the Tibet Autonomous Region. HPGEI has 2,394 sq kms of land under application in China in the Golden Triangle and in the Tibet A.R.

TVI also has a Drilling Division consisting of Exploration Drilling Corporation ("EDCO"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TVI Pacific Inc. based in the Philippines, and Hunan Pacific Drilling ("HPD"), a division of HPGEI based in China, which generates revenue from contract drilling.

Carl L. Caumartin BSc, P.Eng., MBA, Vice President, Exploration of TVI Pacific Inc. is serving as TVI's "Qualified Person" (as contemplated by National Instrument 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects)), for purposes of the 2007 exploration program as described in this News Release. Mr. Caumartin has reviewed and approved this news release and has verified the data (including sampling, analytical and test data) set out in this news release. McPhar Laboratory of Manila, Philippines, an ISO 9001/2000 accredited laboratory, performed the sample preparation and assaying for the prior sampling phase of the exploration project at Tamarok. Gold analysis was by 50 gm fire assay fusion; where gold assay values greater than 3ppm were by gravimetric finish, and by AAS where the values were less than that threshold. Silver was determined by AAS after an HCl-HNO3-HClO4 digest. Pulp and coarse duplicate results were included in the analytical report. A blank and a standard sample were included for each batch of 50 samples for quality control. A replicate assay was done on every 10th sample, and certified reference materials were used in every 20 samples. In addition to the laboratory's internal QA/QC, TVIRD independently inserted blanks and standards randomly, but on average every twentieth sample.
