TVI Pacific Provides Status Update on Greater Canatuan Tenement Exploration Project with JV Partner

June 07, 2010

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 7, 2010) - TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX:TVI) ("TVI") today announced that its Philippine affiliate, TVI Resource Development Philippines, Inc. ("TVIRD") and Joint Venture ("JV") partner DMC-CERI, a unit of Dacon Corporation, have finalized the initial work program leading to the exploration, development and production of mineral deposits in the Greater Canatuan Tenement ("Greater Canatuan") Area.

The JV partners have initiated three main activities under the work program:

--  Free Prior Informed Consent ("FPIC") process;
--  Airborne geophysical survey; and
--  Completion of required processes of the Exploration Permit Application

TVIRD has successfully secured the endorsement of the local council and municipal authorities for the program. Once the FPIC process is completed, all requirements will have been fulfilled for the issuance of the Exploration Permit.

The FPIC process is a Philippine government regulatory requirement for proponent firms to inform affected indigenous communities of proposed exploration projects; to obtain and to document the consent of the affected communities; and to execute a Memorandum of Agreement embodying the agreements of the proponent, the communities and the Philippine National Commission on Indigenous Peoples ("NCIP"). This application has been tendered to the NCIP central office. Informal communications with indigenous people and identification of the relevant communities for formal consultation have begun. The FPIC process is estimated to take between three to five months, depending on government timetables.

Technical Program

TVIRD, as designated Operator of the JV, is in the final process of negotiating the contract with an international service provider to conduct an airborne Transient Electromagnetic and Magnetic ("TEM+mags") survey of the Greater Canatuan Project area. This survey will search for geophysical signatures of Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide ("VMS") style mineralization. The contiguous TVIRD-owned tenements covering TVIRD's operating Canatuan mine and surrounding areas (in excess of 35,000 hectares, including Greater Canatuan) will also be flown. TVIRD believes that this region has been underexplored for VMS style mineralization and that other deposits of similar attributes to the Canatuan orebody may exist within this greenstone belt.

In addition to the previously outlined VMS occurrences in EXPA 61, namely Tabingan, Matigdao and Palalian, the airborne surveys are expected to produce a number of geophysical conductors that will be subject to ground confirmation geophysical and prospecting surveys as soon as ground access becomes available (completion of the FPIC and EXPA application process).

Those occurrences that are confirmed as prospects by further evaluation will undergo grid-based systematic exploration such as rock/soil sampling, geological mapping, ground EM and magnetics surveys, and pitting and trenching. These activities will be followed by drilling as warranted.

TVIRD also plans to fly airborne Magnetics and Radiometrics surveys over the rest of its Zamboanga peninsula tenements and application areas in search of intrusive-related mineralization styles including porphyries, skarns and high-level epithermal deposits. These surveys are scheduled to be flown as soon as regulatory clearances are obtained and the equipment is mobilized into the country. Providing the permitting process goes as expected, the airborne program should begin mid Q3.
