Orbite announces it will continue exploration

The Company also takes a crucial step toward growth as it approves the latest process engineering design review

MONTREAL, July 19 /CNW Telbec/ - Exploration Orbite VSPA Inc. (TSX Venture: ORT.A) is pleased to announce it has resumed mineral exploration on its Grande-Vallée property, the site of an aluminous clay deposit in the Gaspé region. A possible extension of the argillite deposit was recently identified, although its northern and southern boundaries have yet to be determined. The Orbite team is led by professional engineer Jean-Guy Levaque, a qualified person under NI-43-101.

This year the Company plans approximately 3,000 meters of drilling divided between some 10 boreholes. This will extend the southern border of the deposit, thereby enlarging the potential pit and increasing the number of benches through deeper mining. The operation is expected to boost total tonnage without unduly increasing the waste to ore ratio.

Orbite welcomes investor relations specialist Louis Morin

The Company is also pleased to announce that a service agreement has been signed with investor relations specialist Louis Morin. His mission will be to increase the visibility of Orbite projects with the financial community and identify private and institutional investors that may wish to back these projects. Louis Morin adds his expertise to that of attorney Frédéric Bérard, who currently manages corporate and financial communications at Orbite. The agreement is renewable on mutual agreement by the parties, conditional on the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Process engineering design review

On June 28 members of Orbite's executive committee and board of directors joined representatives of Company partner Alouette in reviewing the process engineering design. At this meeting engineering firm SENECA presented the work to date, which marks a key step in purchasing and building the required facilities on the Cap-Chat site.

Members attending the review also took the opportunity to revalidate all related budgets and timetables. The project is currently on track with the initial schedule. A last strategic review is planned for late August, when final implementation of the pilot process begins.
