Montreal, Quebec - January 22, 2013: AURVISTA GOLD CORP. ("Aurvista" or the "Company") (TSX-V: AVA) is pleased to announce that it is commencing the first stage of the 2013 diamond drill program (the "Drill Program") at the Company's Douay Project ("the Project") located in northern Quebec. The Drill Program, consisting of approximately 10,000 meters of diamond drilling, will focus on further exploring the Porphyry Zone to the south (the "South Porphyry Zone").
Aurvista will also commence infill drilling within the Porphyry Zone with the intent of further defining higher gold grade areas within the lower grade mineralized envelope. The objective of the Drill Program is to increase the total bulk tonnage of the Porphyry Zone by extending it to the south. The infill drilling will further explore potential higher gold grade areas within the Porphyry Zone, and thus potentially increase the average gold grades.
"We believe this drill campaign represents a great opportunity for further growth and expansion of our current resource" states Richard Adams, President and CEO.
This Drill Program with assay results and interpretation is expected to be completed by the end of Q2-2013, with results released as they are received by the Company.
Jean Lafleur, M.Sc., P. Geo., the VP Exploration of Aurvista, is the Qualified Person responsible for technical content of this release.
