OLIVUT RESOURCES LTD. PROVIDES SHAREHOLDER UPDATE

Toronto, September 20, 2012 – Olivut Resources Ltd. (“Olivut” or the “Company”) (TSXV:OLV) provides comment on announcement made by the head of the Geological and Mineralogical Institute in Novosibirsk, Russia in response to shareholder inquiries.

The Company emphasizes that information provided by Russian scientists indicates the diamond resource, discovered in the 1970s, is for industrial applications. As reported by The Associated Press September 18, 2012, the “impact diamonds” have industrial applications but are of no use to jewelers.

The Company believes that the market for gem diamonds remains robust with solid, long term growth potential. Olivut is continuing to actively pursue its diamond projects in the Northwest Territories, Canada and South America.

Olivut is a diamond exploration company with a 100% mineral interest in over 142,000 acres in the HOAM Project in Canada’s Northwest Territories and an agreement with Latin American Minerals Inc. and certain of its Paraguayan subsidiaries to explore the Itapoty Diamond Project located in central Paraguay, South America.
