Vancouver, BC — August 3, 2012 – Cream Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: CMA) (“Cream” or the “Company”) has filed an Amended Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the period ended March 31, 2012 to correct an error in the table of estimated open-pit inferred mineral resources which formed part of the updated Mineral Resource Estimate.

|Veta Thomas 50g||430,000||340,000||770,000||245,000||0.55|
|Total measured and indicated||2,829,000||0.53||79.79||107.34||48,435||7.22||9.66|
|Inferred resources Dos Hornos 1 and 2 and Veta Thomas||500,000||0.50||71.69||97.53||18,773||1.17||1.57|
|Open-pit potential 20g|
|Once Bocas North||2,145,000||0.20||40.67||50.67||15,840||2.50||3.20|
|Once Bocas South||909,000||0.27||72.28||82.27||8,170||2.10||2.52|

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
Statements in this news release regarding mineral resource estimates in respect of the Nuevo Milenio project and exploration potential of the project constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and “forward-looking information” under applicable Canadian securities legislation. Some forward-looking information may be identified by terms such as “believes”, “anticipates”, “intends” or “expects”. Forward-looking information is based on a number of assumptions believed by management and the Company’s independent qualified person to be reasonable based on information and data currently available. However, such statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. There is significant uncertainty inherent in any mineral resource estimate. Inferred mineral resources in particular have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, as well as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of a mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category, or to mineral reserves, or that further exploration will confirm or validate such estimates. Under Canadian securities rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Actual results of further exploration may differ materially from estimates disclosed by the Company or implied by estimates of mineral resources. The estimating of mineral resources is a subjective process and the accuracy of mineral resource estimates is a function of the quantity and quality of available data, the accuracy of statistical computations, and the assumptions used and judgments made in interpreting engineering and geological information. Mineral resource estimates are based on many things, including assumed commodity prices, continuity of mineralization, operating costs and exchange rates. Changes in assumptions, including as a result of data gained through further exploration including as to continuity and grade of mineralization, unexpected geological formations, changes in commodity prices, and other factors may result in a significant reduction in the reported mineral resources and could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition and its ability to raise additional capital.
Additional Caution to US Readers
This News Release uses the terms “measured mineral resources” and “indicated mineral resources.” We advise U.S. investors that while such terms are recognized and permitted under Canadian regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves.
