VANCOUVER, June 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Victory Resources Corp. (Symbol VR-TSXV, OTCQX:VRCFF ) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with GEM
Global Yield Fund Limited ("GEM") for a $5.0 million CDN financing
commitment. Funds raised through this facility will be used for the
ongoing drill program and the subsequent engineering work to bring the
Reforma mine to feasibility. Funds will also be used for the
development of the Company's recently optioned Boleo property in
Mexico, the Toni property located near Merritt, B.C., as well as
general working capital.

any private placement under this agreement, and has the right, not the
obligation, to drawdown on available funds. As part of the financing
commitment, the Company has agreed to issue 5 million warrants to GEM
in conjunction with each private placement. The warrants will be
exercisable for a period of three years from the closing of each
private placement at an exercise price of $0.72 CDN per share.
"We are very excited to have entered into this agreement with a world
class investment group like GEM. The $5 million facility will assure
that our company has access to capital beyond our current drill
program," said Wally Boguski, president and CEO. "We look forward to
the results of our ongoing drill program on the Reforma mine as well as
the results from the drill program on the tailings pond from the
historic Reforma mine operations."

The concessions cover a total area of 7,226 hectares. Victory Resources
will earn a 70% undivided interest in the Reforma property as part of
