VSUS Technologies Inc. recently reached a major milestone by registering their
Works Programme with the National Mining Agency in Colombia and anticipates
approval of their mining permit within the next several weeks. This news was
then followed up with this week's corporate developments revealing VSUT has
engaged an investment banking firm to assist in raising the capital needed to
get their La Tabaquera Metallurgical Coal Mine into production. The terms of
any financing will be disclosed at the appropriate time. Furthermore, the
Company anticipates closing on the acquisition of an operating subsidiary in
Colombia by the end of January in efforts to continue to make progress in this
South American hotbed for coal mining.

The company also announced this week that it has changed its name to New
Colombia Resources, Inc. with the state of Delaware. The Company has filed for
a new cusip number and anticipates filing with FINRA for a new symbol in the
next few days. "We felt a name change was necessary to reflect the direction
of the company emphasizing that Colombia is a New Colombia with vast untapped
human and natural resources," stated John Campo, President of New Colombia
Resources, Inc.

VSUT closed up 7.26% on Tuesday (12/18/12) at just slightly under $0.04 price
per share. Globally, many analysts predict coal will actually overtake oil to
become the world's single-largest power source over the next five years,
thanks to strong growth in demand from world markets including China and
India. The critical point for individual investors is to find the stable and
secure players in the coal sector - companies like VSUS Technologies, Inc.
(OTCQB: VSUT) could have a bright, long-lasting position in the global coal
trade. For more information on VSUT visit their website at
