("Sulliden", or the "Company") (TSX: SUE.TO - News)(OTCQX: SDDDF.PK - News)(Lima: SUE.TO - News) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 100% interest in the Vikingo mining concessions located adjacent to its Shahuindo Project in northern Peru. The acquisition of the Vikingo mining concessions provides the Company with important new land on potential strike length extensions of the current mineral deposit of the Shahuindo property (see Figure 1). In addition, Sulliden also successfully negotiated an amendment and extension of its previous right to purchase the Atimmsa mining concessions. These two new agreements significantly increase Sulliden's land position.

Sulliden is a Canadian-based precious metals company focused on the exploration and development of the Shahuindo Gold and Silver Project, located in a prolific gold producing district in northern Peru. A positive Preliminary Assessment for the Shahuindo Project was completed in February 2010 and a Feasibility Study is currently underway. While the Company progresses towards its goal of becoming a gold producer, a significant focus is being placed on exploration drilling. The current mineral deposit is open in all directions and at depth, and the Company plans to further drill the property in 2012 to continue the mineral expansion. Sulliden is led by a strong management team with the proven ability to develop, finance and operate mining projects and is poised to generate superior value for its shareholders.
