    TORONTO, Jan. 30 /CNW Telbec/ - Virgin Metals Inc. ("Virgin Metals")
(TSX-V: VGM) announces that it has filed on Sedar a Technical Report prepared
by Chlumsky Armbrust and Meyer of Denver that gives the basis for the recently
announced resource calculation at Virgin's 100% owned Los Verdes project in

production while the other, Cuatro Hermanos, is expected to be the focus of
expanded exploration effort.
