Vena Cancels Non-binding Option on Esquilache, Pucara and Amantina Projects and Starts Discussions with Other Interested Groups

TORONTO, June 3, 2013 /CNW/ - Vena Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Vena") (TSX: VEM, Peru: VEM, Germany: V1RA, USA: VNARF) announces that after weeks of negotiating a final binding agreement with a private Peruvian mining company, the potential option on the Esquilache, Pucara and Amantina projects located in the department of Puno, Peru (collectively, the "Projects") has been terminated and the Company has begun discussions with four other interested groups.  The Company had announced the non-binding Letter of Intent on March 8th which would have would have resulted in a joint venture on the Projects.

Juan Vegarra, Chairman and CEO of the Company stated: "We know markets are extremely difficult for exploration companies, but we also know the significant potential of the Esquilache high-grade polymetallic deposit to deliver positive results in the short term and the longer term potential of the Pucara and Amantina projects. Vena plans on proceeding with obtaining drilling permits and as funds become available (US$2.5 million) in September/October from the sale of the Azulcocha mine last year, the Company will execute its stated goal to delineate resources quickly.  It is to our shareholder's interest to look for better potential partnerships that are the least dilutive and enable us to fast-track a production decision even at a small scale.  In this challenging market environment, Vena continues to minimize its operating expenses and management is evaluating financing alternatives to improve the Company's current working capital position."
