VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2011) - Samaranta Mining Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SAX) ("Samaranta") announces it has commenced a tightly spaced 501 line kilometer Magnetometer and Gamma Spectrometer survey on four separate blocks, including the Guadalupe property, located adjacent to the northern boundary of the Frontino Gold Mines in Antioquia, Colombia.

Samaranta engaged the services of MPX Geophysics of Markham Ontario ("MPX") to undertake the Helicopter Magnetometer and Gamma Spectrometer (Radiometrics) survey. The survey consists of 501 line kilometers in east-west direction at 75 meter line spacing covering four separate blocks all of which are located in the Segovia batholith within the area of Frontino Gold Mines.

The purpose of the survey is to develop an understanding of the structure and alteration on Samaranta's properties. In particular, the geological similarities and or the possible extension of Frontino Gold Mines on to the Guadalupe concessions. Samaranta intends to undertake a detailed geophysical interpretation of the Magnetometer and Gamma Spectrometer survey once the final data is received.

Dr. Volkmar Hable President and CEO of Samaranta stated, "The airborne survey will develop areas of interest and give us a clear idea of structural trends of the quarts veins on the Guadalupe property. When the interpretation is completed Samaranta will immediately start the process of generating viable drill targets by mobilizing crews to undertake trenching and geological sampling."

About Samaranta:

Samaranta's key asset is the Guadalupe property that is strategically located on the northern boundary of the Frontino Gold Mine ("FGM"). FGM has been in production since about 1852 with recorded production totaling about 4.6 million ounces. Both Guadalupe and FGM are underlain primarily by the same granodioritic rocks of the Segovia batholith. The Segovia Gold Belt is a region of granodioritic rocks measuring approximately 300 km in length by up to 75 km in width defined by a strong fault zone system trending approximately north-south. Gold mineralization within this belt is primarily associated with quartz veins and narrow vein swarms that are spatially related to the major north to northeast trending fault structures.
