About Focus Ventures

Focus Ventures is acquiring advanced, drill-ready projects in Peru. Led by an experienced technical team of geologists and consultants, Focus's strategy is to identify and acquire former producing mines or un-tested gold properties that show potential to become new mines. The Nueva California Property, Focus's first acquisition, lies 35km north of Barrick Gold's Pierina Mine, near the town of Huaraz and is currently a privately owned, operating gold silver mine. Focus is the first company to drill test the project area, with encouraging results from the 400 meter, first-pass drill campaign, and a second phase of drilling now in the planning and permitting stages.

The Company was recently listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, and currently has 19.3 million shares issued. For further information on Focus Ventures Ltd., please call 604-688-5288 or visit our web site
