Orsa Reports Positive Assay Results at Quartz Mountain Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Orsa Ventures Corp. ("Orsa" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ORN) is pleased to announce further positive confirmatory drill results at its wholly-owned Quartz Mountain Property, in Lake County, Oregon, USA.

Drill core from the 2004 and 2009 drill campaigns was relocated to Orsa's new office and core logging facility in the town of Lakeview. Given the focus of the previous operators on high grade vein systems for those drill programs, the majority of the core was not split, logged, nor assayed.

Orsa's immediate priorities include the detailed logging and sampling for gold assay and for geochemistry of the nine diamond drill holes on Crone Hill and Quartz Butte domes comprising the Quincy Drilling Campaign of 2004. In total, Quincy drilled three holes on Crone Hill for 2,377 feet (724.5 metres ("m")), and six holes on Quartz Butte for 5,789 feet (1764.5 metres).

The Crone Hill and Quartz Butte domes contain a 2.85 million ounce Inferred gold Resource (110,448,000 tonnes grading 0.80 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold) with excellent exploration upside. That resource is based on 263,000 feet (80,000 metres) of drilling completed in the 1980's.

Orsa is pleased to report that all holes intercepted anticipated gold mineralization as modeled with highlights as follows:

Highlights include:

Hole QM-725 returned a weighted average of 29 m of 0.92 g/t Au;

Hole QM-728 returned a weighted average of 15.2 m of 0.74 g/t Au, and 44.2 m of 1 g/t Au;

Hole QM-729 returned a weighted average of 51.8 m of 1.13 g/t Au; and

Hole QM-730 returned a weighted average of 45.7 m of 0.88 g/t Au.

Assays for these drill holes are as shown in the attached table.

Reported intervals must be at least 1.5 meters wide; drill hole intercepts are reported at a 0.2 g/t Au cutoff or a 0.4 g/t Au cutoff. Intervals contain no more than four low-grade to barren samples between mineralized samples containing over 0.2 g/t Au or intervals contain no more than two low-grade to barren samples between mineralized samples containing over 0.4g/t Au.

Orsa Ventures utilizes a comprehensive QA/QC program consisting of blanks, drill rig sample duplicates and reference samples to ensure best practices are followed and the data collected is of the highest quality. All samples were prepared to normal industry standards and assayed for gold by Fire assay with AA finish by Als Chemex of Reno accredited to ISO/IEC 17025-2005 standards to provide complete assurance regarding quality performance in every aspect of their network. Intercepts are close to true thickness.
