Belo Sun Releases Results from 65 Drill Holes Further Extending the Ouro Verde Deposit Along Strike Northwest and Down Dip

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 20, 2012) - Belo Sun Mining Corp. (TSX:BSX) (the "Company" or "Belo Sun") is pleased to announce assay results from 65 additional drill holes from the diamond drilling program at its Volta Grande Gold Project located in Para State, Brazil. The complete results and selected cross sections are presented below. The results being released include 28 drill holes from the Ouro Verde deposit and 37 drill holes from the Grota Seca deposit. The majority of these holes will be incorporated into an updated resource estimate expected to be released in Q2 2012 and will be the basis of the pre-feasibility study scheduled to be completed in Q3 2012. Some of the highlights of this round of results are:

o Hole VVGD-297 (located at Ouro Verde Cross Section 1050 NW) has intersected multiple mineralized zones with widths ranging from 5.45 m to 14.50 meters. A high grade 10.00 meter thick zone grading 4.01 g/t Au has been intersected near surface (from 10.00 m depth). It is important to emphasize that this hole extends the Ouro Verde deposit 250 meters from the previously modeled zones.
o Significant down dip intercepts in that region also includes VVGD-292 (Ouro Verde Cross Section 950 NW) with 12.00 meters grading 3.91 g/t Au (from 130.00 m depth) including 7.60 meters grading 5.86 g/t Au.
o Several other holes listed below as resource expansion holes show significant multiple mineralized zones with thickness of up to 40.45 meters such as in VVGD 291 (OV Cross Section 1000 NW).
At the Ouro Verde deposit, hole VVGD-267 (Cross Section 300 NW) which is part of the infill drilling for upgrading the mineral resource categories intersected multiple high grade shallow mineralized zones and improve the grade in that area of the deposit. Hole VVGD-300 (Cross Section 750 NW) intersected multiple high grade mineralized intervals extending down dip approximately 500 meters below surface. This hole intersected 9 mineralized zones with widths ranging from 3.65 m to 24.00 meters and the best interval being 9.65 meters grading 5.03 g/t Au.
At the Grota Seca deposit all holes being released are part of the infill drilling program to upgrade the resources and several significant high grade intercepts such as the one in hole VVGD-249 (Cross Section 900 W) which intersected multiple mineralized zones such as 22.00 meters grading 8.32 g/t Au (from 567.00 m depth).

Since April 2010 Belo Sun has completed 103,132 meters of drilling and expects to release a new mineral resources update later this quarter followed by a full report to be issued and filed on SEDAR in due course. Most drill hole results being released today will be included in that update.

Helio Diniz, the Vice President, Exploration for Belo Sun, stated, "We are very excited with the expansion of mineral resources that we are seeing at the Ouro Verde deposit. In addition it is very encouraging to see some of the deep holes showing the continuity of the mineralization down dip. We believe that after a significant milestone of more than 100,000 meters of drilling in the Volta Grande area completed to date, the fact that the deposits remain open demonstrates the tremendous potential and confirms this as one of the largest gold deposits ever discovered in this part of the Brazilian Amazon Craton. We are optimistic that the next phase of drilling will continue with significant expansion of estimated mineral resources at Volta Grande in 2012".

A complete summary of assays are listed below. To date, Belo Sun has completed 350 drill holes at the Volta Grande Gold Project, of which assays remain pending for 24 holes. The current drilling program is designed to upgrade and expand the existing mineral resource estimate and further results will be released as they become available.

The geological map of the Volta Grande Gold Project, with diagrams setting out the main deposit locations, is included below.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

The scientific and technical information in this press release has been reviewed and approved by David Gower, P. Geo., an advisor to Belo Sun and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. The exploration program is directly supervised by Mr. Carlos Cravo, P. Geo., Belo Sun's exploration manager. Belo Sun's procedures for handling drill core comprise initial description and logging into a Microsoft Access database. Mineralized, suspected mineralized or not intervals in the drill holes are described in detail and marked for sampling. Core is then cut in half with the right-hand portion of the core put into plastic sample bags and sealed. The left-hand portion is returned to the core box and is stored for future reference or study. Assay standard and "Blank" samples are inserted every 20th sample. These samples are then delivered to ACME Labs sample preparation facility at the Project site. The assay samples are then fine-crushed to better than 80% passing 10 mesh screens, with an assay pulp split of up to 1000 grams pulverized to better than 85% passing 200 mesh screen. Samples are assayed at ACME Labs in Santiago, Chile, using a 50 gram fire assay with AAS finish. These QA/QC procedures provide several measures of data quality and assure the Company that the assay data is representative of the original sample.
