Lac Dore North Assay Results



    VANCOUVER, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - Apella Resources Inc. (TSX.V: APA); (Frankfurt
Symbol: NWN) and its Board of Directors are pleased to announce the results of
its channel sampling program which was recently completed on its 100-per-cent
owned Lac Dore North Vanadium-Titanium-Iron Project. The Lac Dore North
property encompasses 18 claims covering an area of approximately 300 hectares
(741 acres), covering the Northeast extension of the renowned Lac Dore
Vanadium-Titanium-Iron Deposit, over a strike length of 2.6 kilometers (1.6
miles). A total of 60 samples were taken, representing a total length of
sampling of about 90 meters and the results are as follows:
    Vanadium values from 0.05% to 0.610%, which after conversion to V205,
returned values from 0.089% to 1.089%. The average grade of Vanadium Pentoxide
(V205) is 0.55%. Titanium (Ti02) values range from 1.33% to 12.30%; the
average grade of Titanium (Ti02) is 6.40%. Iron (Fe) values range from 13.23%
to 56.50%; the average grade of Iron (Fe) is 32.81%.
    These results represent only a small part of the P1 Zone (G.O. Allard,
1990) crossing Apella's claims, however they are compatible with results
obtained by the previous owners of the claims. The channel samples did not
cross the total width of this zone, therefore the Company's geologist
recommends stripping a stratigraphic section across the P1 Zone before
undertaking an aggressive drilling program.
    During the Fall 2008 exploration program, Apella's field crew stripped
and cleared off two large areas, covering several hundred square meters of
magnetite-bearing mineralization, as well as four smaller zones. The stripped
areas cover part of the P1 Zone which is found at the base of the Layered
Series of the Lac Dore Anorthositic Complex. Normally this zone varies from 30
to 90 meters in thickness. It is the only zone which contains economic values
of Vanadium. The P1 Zone is made of an alternation of leucocratic ferrogabbro,
magnetite rich ferrogabbro, ferropyroxennite, magnetite rich pyroxenite and
magnetitites. The channel sampling cut part of this alternation like a
horizontal drill hole. It is consequently normal to obtain samples presenting
rich and low Vanadium contents.
    On one of the stripped areas, two Northwest oriented transversal lines,
situated 25 meters apart, were sawed down to a 5 centimeter (2 inches) depth.
The channels are 5 centimeters (2 inches) in width. Channel samples, recovered
with a hammer and chisel, are an average of 1 meter in length and between 2.44
and 7.42 kilograms in weight.

    Samples were analyzed by ALS-Chemex laboratories in Val d'Or, Quebec and
in Perth, Australia, using two different methods. The first method is aimed at
Iron ore. It consists of a fusion followed by X-Ray fluorescence spectrometry
(ME-XRF-11). The accuracy for Vanadium is 0.001%. However, shipping the
samples to Australia required a long quarantine period which does not allow
for results prior to a three month time period. Consequently, the Company
requested that the laboratory propose a method of assaying providing almost
the same results but with a much shorter waiting period. The second batch of
samples were treated by fusion (lithium metaborate) followed by X-Ray
fluorescence (ME-XRF-06). Results were obtained within three weeks using this
method.
