Focus Discontinues Nueva California Option

Mar 02, 2011, 12:32 ET from Focus Ventures Ltd.

VANCOUVER, March 2 /PRNewswire/ - Focus Ventures Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: FCV.V) announces that it has terminated its Option Agreement on the Nueva California property, Peru.

Since the Company announced drill results from its second phase drill program in March 2010, management has been unsuccessful in finding a joint venture partner to continue exploration at the property. In view of this and an imminent option payment that would be required to keep the agreement in good standing, the Company has decided that the property be relinquished.
