StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on Andover Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE: AOX)(OTCBB: AOVTF) Upon Announcement of Assay Results From Three Discovery Holes on the S.W. Sun “VMS” Target – August 15, 2011

Dallas, Texas (August 15, 2011) – StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on Andover Ventures Inc.  (TSX VENTURE: AOX)(OTCBB: AOVTF)(FRANKFURT:R2X) The Company announced on August 12, 2011, that the assay results from three (3) exploration drill holes from the 2011 drilling program drilled into the S.W. Sun target, located in the Ambler Mining District, Northwest, Alaska. All three drill holes encountered volcanogenic massive sulfide mineralization (“VMS”) and have intersected the S.W. Sun over a strike length of approximately 0.5 kilometers. This new target is open down-dip and to the southwest. Drill holes Sun11-25, Sun11-26 and Sun11-27 were completed in June and July, 2011 at depths of 242.9, 285.9 and 214.3 meters, respectively. Assay results from drill holes Sun11-23A and Sun11-24 were reported in a previous news release. (see Andover’s news release dated July 27th, 2011.)  The Company closed up five percent on Friday, August 12, 2011, at $0.6112, trading in a fifty-two week range of $0.863 – 0.1966.

The 2011 drill core was split on site by Company staff and sent for assay to ALS Minerals located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The core was analyzed for a 30 element ICP-AA analysis with gold and silver fire assayed with an AA finish. Base metal over limits were wet assayed. Blanks and standards were inserted with each sample shipment.

The assay results from selected intercepts from drill holes Sun11-25 and Sun11-26 are shown in the following table:

Including 232.85 237.30 4.45 3.41 0.48 2.18 5.11 304.6 0.395

Drill holes Sun11-25 and Sun11-26 were drilled from the same platform at angles of -60º and -82º, respectively. The two holes succeeded in extending the known volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) mineralization for 300 meters toward the southwest at the S.W. Sun target area. VMS mineralization at S.W. Sun now extends for at least 500 meters along strike. In addition the favorable “white schist” package of rocks have been mapped for 9.5 km to the west of the currently known S.W. Sun target. This area of “white schist” is untested by drilling.

Drill hole Sun11-27 was also drilled in the S.W. Sun target approximately 500 meters northeast of holes Sun11-25 and Sun11-26 to confirm historic drill results and to test the down dip extension of the S.W. Sun. Assay results from selected intercepts from Sun11-27 are tabulated below:

Bradley C. Peek, Andover’s General Manager for the Sun Project states, “We are very pleased with the results of the 2011 drilling. We were successful in proving the S.W. Sun to be another exciting new VMS target for future exploration. The higher silver values we are now seeing at S.W. Sun are very encouraging.”

Larry Segerstrom, Andover’s Chief Operating Officer stated, “We are very pleased with these results from the S.W. Sun exploratory program. We look forward to the 2012 drill program where we will continue to step out and test this deposit down-dip and to the southwest where it is open on strike.”

With the completion of the 2011 drill program, 76 holes (approximately 49,000 feet) have been drilled on the property. Andover drilled 27 of these holes; the others were done by previous operators, including Anaconda, Noranda, Sunshine Mining Company, Cominco and Bear Creek Mining Company.
