    VANCOUVER, July 21 /CNW/ - Mexivada Mining Corp. has staked and filed a
further 96 mining claims at its Goldstorm property in Elko County, Nevada.
Mexivada now controls 149 lode mining claims (2,980 acres) and 800 acres of
private land at Goldstorm. The claims are located in the Snowstorm Mountains
Mining District 18 kilometres ("km") northeast of Newmont's large producing
Twin Creeks gold mine, near the intersection of the Carlin-, Getchell- and
Northern Nevada Rift gold trends. Metallurgically compatible milling
facilities are present at Newmont's Midas Mine, situated 18 km to the
southeast of Goldstorm.
    Mexivada recently discovered outcropping high-level Midas-style gold- and
naumannite (silver selenide) bearing quartz veining at the surface in
silicified/replaced spherulitic rhyolites, which also are found near the top
of the Midas Mine gold-silver system. The best assay from this Prospect Hill
zone is 9.0 grams per ton ("g/t") gold and 43.9 g/t silver, across a surface
trench width of 3 metres, and surface grab samples taken by prior explorers
from the Dome Hill zone further to the south reportedly assayed up to 30 g/t
gold. Forty exploration holes have been drilled by 3rd party companies to
date. Mexivada recently acquired a large database from Metallic Ventures,
which is being augmented by field geologic mapping. High grade gold-silver
mineralization present at Goldstorm is believed to represent the "poddy" zone
above possible zones of better continuity of gold mineralization, as exist at
    Mexivada recently completed a ground gravity survey at Goldstorm, which
indicated a large block of uplifted basement rocks south of a west-northwest
trending fault jog going through the heart of the property, a highly favorable
exploration target for Carlin-style gold mineralization in Paleozoic
carbonate-bearing sedimentary rocks. A number of gold targets on the property
have never been tested by drilling, and the modern exploration models for
Midas-and Carlin-style gold deposits suggest that deeper drilling on the
property is necessary to reach certain of these targets. Mexivada plans to
begin permitting for drilling at Goldstorm in late 2008. No mineral resources
or mineral reserves have been defined at Goldstorm.
