Belo Sun Releases Results for 85 Additional Drill Holes at Its Volta Grande Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Belo Sun Mining Corp. (TSX:BSX) reports assays for 85 additional drill holes (corresponding to 27,261 meters) at its Volta Grande Project as part of its mineral resources expansion and upgrade drilling program.

The results being released today are being incorporated into the company's database and will be used in the new mineral resource estimate update expected to be completed later this year. This mineral resource estimate update represents a very important milestone for the company as it will be the largest in terms of number of new holes (263) and meters (73,675) in the history of the Volta Grande Project (See press releases dated June 27th, 2012 and Sept 4th, 2012).

Included in this release are the assay results from 59 additional drill holes from the Grota Seca deposit, 24 from the Ouro Verde deposit and 2 from the South block area. The complete results and selected cross sections are presented below. Highlights from the holes contained in this release include:


--  Hole VVGD-542 (Grota Seca Cross Section 862.5W) intersected 39.00 meters
    grading 5.25 g/t Au (from 71.00 meters) including 12.00 meters grading
    10.09 g/t Au (from 75.00 meters) 
    
--  Significant down dip intercepts at the Ouro Verde deposit such as in
    hole VVGD- 444 at section 725 NW with 12.10 meters grading 4.90 g/t Au
    (from 401.85 meters) and 16.73 meters grading 2.00 g/t Au (from 483.50
    meters). 
    
--  Hole VVGD-566 which is located in the Ouro Verde / Grota Seca "Junction"
    (Ouro Verde Cross Section 350J) intersected multiple mineralized zones
    suggesting possible continuity of the mineralization between the two
    deposits. 
    
--  At the South Block, Grande Deposit the highlight is hole VVGD-465 with
    4.65 meters grading 6.13 g/t Au. 

Helio Diniz, the Vice President of Exploration for Belo Sun, stated, "We are very pleased to see the results confirming our expectations about the quality of the Volta Grande gold deposits. In addition, the modelling of the deposits are meeting our expectations to deliver the new resource estimate before the end of the year, which will be incorporated into a new mining plan that will be the basis of the pre-feasibility study to be released in Q1 2013."

At present Volta Grande has 2.85 million ounces in the measured and indicated category grading 1.69 g/t and 2.3 million ounces grading 1.81 g/t in the inferred category (see press releases dated April 25th, 2012 and June 11th, 2012). The focus of this campaign has been to upgrade inferred resources into the measured and indicated category and to expand the overall size of the resource estimate.

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 Project site. The assay samples are then fine-crushed to better than 80% passing 10 mesh screens, with an assay pulp split of up to 1,000 grams pulverized to better than 85% 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.
