GeoNovus and Inmet Begin Drilling at Red Hills, Arizona

GeoNovus and Inmet Begin Drilling at Red Hills, Arizona 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- GEONOVUS
MINERALS CORP. (TSX VENTURE:GNM) ("GeoNovus" or the "Company") is
pleased to announce the start of drilling at the Red Hills porphyry
copper project in south east Arizona.  
In late 2012, drilling confirmed the presence of a fault-displaced
portion of a porphyry system under sedimentary cover with an average
of 0.18% Cu intercepted over 104.2 meters, including two separate
intercepts of 0.39% Cu over 9.75 meters and 0.42% Cu over 11.8
meters, respectively (see news release, September 15th, 2012). The
results suggested that the western portion of the property should be
targeted for drilling, and a gravity survey was conducted to better
define those areas (see news release, January 25, 2013).  
The Company (through operator Bronco Creek Exploration, Inc.) has
engaged Major Drilling, Inc. (Salt Lake City, Utah) for follow up
drilling at Red Hills with a combined rotary / core program
anticipated to total approx. 1800 meters. Drilling is expected to
take 45 days to complete. 
The technical contents of this release were reviewed by Dr. Tom E.
McCandless, P. Geo., Technical Advisor to GeoNovus Minerals and
qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.  
GeoNovus has an option agreement with Inmet Mining Corp. to explore
the Red Hills porphyry copper project, with GeoNovus holding its
interest under a mining lease agreement with Eurasian Minerals Inc.
through its wholly-owned subsidiary Bronco Creek Exploration, Inc.
('Bronco Creek'). Eurasian Minerals (through Bronco Creek) has acted
as manager for the work programs at Red Hills.  
The Company has also concluded that based on its last drilling
results, no further work is warranted at its Middle Mountain copper
porphyry project. Middle Mountain was explored under an option
agreement with Inmet and mining lease agreement with Bronco Creek
similar to that at Red Hills.
