LEVON REPORTS EXCELLENT PHASE 2 BULK TONNAGE AG, AU, ZN, PB DRILL RESULTS, OPEN TO EXPANSION IN TWO DISCOVERY ZONES AT CORDERO PROJECT, CHIHUHUA, MEXICO


Levon Resources, Ltd is pleased to report the final Phase 2 drill assay results for 27 core holes in two zones at the Cordero silver, gold, zinc, lead bulk tonnage property, located 35 kilometres northeast of Hidalgo Del Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico. These results continue to expand the Pozo de Plata Diatreme and Cordero Porphyry discovery zones, which remain open in plan and at depth. Currently Phase 3 offset definition, delineation and exploration drilling is being laid out. To view detailed drill location maps, please see our Supporting Drill Location Graphics for this news release.

Highlights

Some of the significant drill intercepts include 118 metres grading 51 g/T Ag, 0.397 g/T Au, 0.41 % Zn, 0.96% P (117 g/T Ag equivalent) in hole C10-46 at the north edge of the Pozo de Plata drill grid and 100 metres grading 72.8 g/T Ag, 0.425 g/T, 0.97 % Zn, 1.11% Pb (162 g/T Ag equivalent) in hole C10-35 in a west part of the drill grid.

Vertical hole C10-60 was collared south of previously announced drill hole C10-39 at the southern edge of the drill grid. Starting from 4 metres depth, C10-60 intersected 100 metres that grades 31.7 g/T Ag, 0.08 g/T Au 0.34% Zn and 0.38% Pb, and a deeper interval starting at 228 metres of a 62 metre core interval grading 22.3 g/T Ag, .012 Au, 2.05 % Zn and 0.43% Pb, this intersection remains open to the south.

* Silver equivalent grade, based on assumed recoveries is calculated using the following metal prices: silver at $15 per ounce, gold at $1,000 per ounce, zinc at 90 cents per pound, lead at 90 cents per pound and assumed recoveries (metallurgical and smelter deductions) of 70% for silver and gold and 50% for zinc and lead. Actual metal recoveries have not been determined. Summary assay intervals as reported above were selected based on a 30 g/T Ag equivalent cut-off with inclusion of up to no more than 10 metres of internal below cut-off values averaging not less than 15 g/T Ag equivalent.

DISCUSSION

Pozo de Plata Diatreme
The core of the Pozo de Plata drill grid (50-100 m hole centers) now covers an area 633 metres on northeast strike by 350 metres wide, and has been drilled generally to 325+ metre vertical depths with angle and vertical holes, some of which reach 500 m vertical depths.

All the holes in the grid have been drilled to offset visible mineralization estimated to be of significant grade mineralization from the core logging. We now know the visual estimates generally correlate well with the assay values. The mineralization is often exposed to the surface and the zone remains open to the north, south, west, and in some areas at depth.

Phase 2 drill results establish a tabular mineralized diatreme breccia zone along northeast trending, mineralized Tertiary rhyolite and dacite dike swarms, which have themselves been incorporated into the mineralized diatreme breccias by explosive diatreme, gas streaming style brecciation. Large blocks of limestone country rocks occur as septa and clasts within the diatremes. Footwall limestone country rocks enclose the diatreme breccia bodies along highly irregular, and locally pipe like contact surfaces. The areal extent of the diatremes has yet to be defined by drilling or mapping. Diatreme breccia is recessive-weathering and not well exposed at surface.

Though some sulfides are exposed at the surface, supergene weathering generally ranges to depths of 10 to 27 m. Hypogene sulfide mineralization is associated with galena, sphalerite, pyrite and a very fine grained black metallic sulfosalt (tetrahedrite? or argento pyrite?). Galena at Cordero typically displays curved cleavage faces common in Ag bearing galena and there is generally an excellent correlation of Ag and Pb in the assay values. Sulfide minerals occur as (1) diatreme clasts, (2) disseminated grains and massive accumulations in the diatreme breccia matrix and as (3) veins of massive sulfide (barite, sphalerite, galena, pyrite) that are cut by and also cut the diatreme breccias and breccia-dikes and (4) high grade replacement mineralization after large limestone clasts within the diatreme (as in hole C10-31, press release of May 13, 2010). Cross cutting relationships document a minimum of 5 pulses of mineralization, the youngest of which is discordant, massive sulfide veins (<1 to 5 cm widths) that cut and post date the diatreme(s).

Well mineralized diatreme breccia and breccia-dikes are also exposed in outlying exploration drill holes 300 m to the southwest of the Pozo de Plata Diatreme discovery drill grid (hole C09-1) and 425 m to the east (hole C10-32) in the Josefina Mine zone, both of which are interpreted as probable extensions of the discovery zone. Phase 3 offset and delineation drilling is planned to test the Pozo de Plata Diatreme mineralized zone up to and beyond these outlying holes.

Cordero Porphyry Zone
The Cordero Porphyry zone 1,350 m NE of the Pozo de Plata Diatreme, is distinguished by classic porphyry-style disseminated and stockwork vein mineralization with Ag, Zn, Pb, Au and newly recognized veinlet molybdenite mineralization at depth to the south.

An initial 1,200 m long NNW composite cross section fence of 7 angle core holes has been completed across the Cordero Porphyry target zone and assays of hole C10-27, C10-29, C10-38 and C10-59 are presented in table 1. Hole C10-41 (previously released-news release of June 1, 2010) at the north end of the drill hole fence is visually mineralized essentially through it's entire 503.45m length) in several nested, rhyolite porphyry intrusives. The rhyolites are thought to be rooted in a larger mineralized stock at depth within an intrusive corridor between the Cordero Dome and the La Ceniza stock to the northeast.

Disseminated and stockwork vein sphalerite, galena, and locally very fine grained tetrahedrite and argento pyrite with sparse gangue minerals are the dominate mineralization. Abundance of veining and stockwork veining tends to increase with depth. The sulfide minerals are hosted within mostly pervasive and wide (several metres) phyllic alteration vein selvage zones , cutting pervasive phyllic and potassic alteration in the rhyolite stocks. The molybdenite bearing veinlets in the bottoms of holes to the south, are enveloped by selvages of strong potassic alteration, which is interpreted as direct evidence of a deeper Mo porphyry system (or mineralized shell), that cuts the overlying Ag, Au, Zn, Pb porphyry system (or shell) in the context of well known porphyry deposit, alteration zoning models. Phase 3 deeper drill tests are being designed.

"The Pozo de Plata Diatreme and felsic breccia-dike complex mineralization, including some high grade replacement mineralization are earmarks of a Penasquito type system exposed from surface. In the Cordero Porphyry zone the Ag, Au, Zn, Pb bulk tonnage, porphyry-style mineralization and recognition of moly veinlets and potassic selvage alteration at depth to the south adds a new exploration dimension in one target at Cordero." Comments Vic Chevillon, VP Exploration, Director, Levon.

"We are pleased at the complexity and evidence of multiple mineralization pulses that the core drilling has revealed, and now with the increasing scale of the project, we remain on track to expand the two discovery zones and the project with Phase 3 drilling " adds Ron Tremblay, President, CEO, Levon.

Airborne Geophysics
Areoquest completed an airborne magnetic, EM, and radiometric survey over the Cordero Porphyry Belt in the south part of the property in May 2010, and final reports are being delivered. Preliminary results show the Pozo de Plata Diatreme, Cordero Dome and the La Ceniza and Sanson intrusive centers are underlain by a large magnetic high, plunging to the southwest, and associated with high potassic signatures from the radiometrics.

Ground Gravity Survey
The preliminary airborne results and interpretations, were followed up by ground gravity surveys over the Pozo de Plata and Dos Mil Diez Diatreme Complexes. The gravity data from McGee Geophysics, Reno, Nevada was inverted in 3D, and the results are being integrated into the 3D Exploration Model for final drill targeting to help guide the expansion drilling of the Pozo de Plata discovery zone, and define outlying mine-scale targets in the two diatreme complexes. Gravity lows coincide with mapped mineralized diatreme breccias, and elevated Ag, Au, Zn and Pb in soils and rock chips.

Phase 3 Exploration
Phase 3 drilling is being designed to grid drill, offset and delineate the Pozo de Plata Diatreme, and Cordero Porphyry zones, and to test the outlying exploration targets. Phase 3 exploration and drilling will be described further when all final geophysical data is available and integrated with the project data.

QA/QC Procedures and Reporting Parameters
All drill holes are HQ core drilled by HD Drilling of Mazatlan, Mexico. HQ diameter core samples were collected in continuous two-metre lengths and cut by sawing. All of the samples mentioned in this release were prepared and analyzed by ALS Chemex at its labs in Chihuahua, Mexico, and Vancouver, Canada respectively. Gold analyses were performed by 30-gram fire assay with an atomic absorption finish. Silver, zinc and lead were analyzed as part of a multi-element inductively coupled argon plasma ("ICP") package using a four-acid digestion with over-limit results being reanalyzed with assay procedures using ICP-AES.

The company employs a rigorous quality assurance and quality control program that include standardized material, blanks and duplicates. AMEC Americas Ltd. has designed the QAQC protocol from a study and review of information provided by the Joint Venture to AMEC by Robert Cameron, PGeo,, CEO, Valley High Ventures.

The project is under the direct supervision of Vic Chevillon, MA, CPG, Vice-President of Exploration for Levon Resources Ltd. ("Levon") who is a qualified person within the context of National Instrument 43-101, has read and takes responsibility for this news release.

The property comprises wholly-owned claims and consolidated land agreements that total about 20,000 hectares and is being explored in the Joint Venture by Levon and Valley High Ventures, Ltd. (VHV) wherein Levon is 51% owner and operator of the project and holds 49% in trust for VHV.
