(the "Company" or "Vena") (TSX: VEM) (Peru: VEM) (Germany: V1RA) ( USA: VNARF) announces that it has entered into a share purchase agreement with Azincourt Uranium Inc. (TSXV: AAZ) ("Azincourt") to sell the Company's 50% equity interest in Minergia S.A.C. ("Minergia"), a joint venture company owned by the Company and Cameco Global Exploration Ltd. ("CGE"), which owns and operates the Macusani and Muñani uranium projects in the Puno department of southeastern Peru.

Under the terms of the share purchase agreement, Azincourt will acquire Vena's 50% ownership in Minergia in exchange for a total consideration of $1,000,000, of which $750,000 will be payable in 2,525,252 common shares (the "Payment Shares") in the capital of Azincourt which number of common shares was determined based on the volume weighted average trading price of such common shares for the 10 days immediately prior to signing of the share purchase agreement, and $250,000 in cash on closing.
