Cogitore Announces 3.6 Million Tonne Inferred Resource at Scott Lake

Deposit still open in several directions.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2009) - Cogitore Resources Inc. (the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:WOO) is pleased to report the results of the first mineral resource estimate for its 100% owned Scott Lake Project near Chibougamau, Quebec. The mineral resource estimate was prepared by Bernard Salmon, Ing., of Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. ("Scott Wilson RPA"). A Technical Report in compliance with National Instrument NI-43-101 will be filed on SEDAR within 45 days of this release. The Scott Wilson RPA report includes results current to drill hole SC-45 (press released November 12, 2009).

The mineral resource estimate was done by block modeling techniques, using a minimum horizontal width of 2.0 metres and a Net Smelter Return cut-off of $80 per tonne. All technical parameters are fully disclosed in the Scott Wilson RPA report, which will also be posted on Cogitore's web site. Highlights of the initial Scott Wilson RPA estimate report include:

- inferred resources of 3.6 million tonnes grading 1.1% copper, 5.2% zinc, 0.3g/t gold and 36g/t silver (i);

- approximately 70% of the mineralization is stringer-type, and several large portions may be amenable to less expensive bulk mining underground methods;

- both massive and stringer-type polymetallic sulphide mineralization remain open at depth and other directions;

- two key Cogitore intercepts, drill holes SC-30 and SL-91-105, are excluded because the intersections are deemed too isolated to establish shape and size. The Selco-Scott deposit was not included as most of the drill core from Selco's 1976 drilling is no longer available for independent verification.

(i) Assumptions made by Scott Wilson RPA for the determination of the $80 NSR cut-off include a US$0.85 Canadian dollar and the following metal prices: copper - US$2.50/lb, zinc - US$1.00/lb, gold - US $950/oz, and silver - US $15/oz.

Dr. Gerald Riverin, Company President and CEO, commented: "This mineral resource estimate is a key milestone for the Company, but it is important to note that it is a first step in a longer process. Off-hole geophysical anomalies indicate mineralization is open to the east, west and at depth. Bore-hole and airborne MegaTEM anomalies also suggest potential for parallel zones of mineralization to the north and south. It has been very useful to have Scott Wilson RPA's professionals rigorously test Cogitore's new (2009) geologic model, as the new model (click here to see appended 3-D rendering) has stood up well to new methodologies. In turn, the new configuration is enabling the Company to re-interpret down-the-hole geophysical survey results from over 150 historic holes. Anomalies which once seemed isolated may hold new significance."

"As well, healthy intercepts such as those in holes SC-30 (2.0% copper, 1.0% zinc, 0.2 g/t gold and 52.5 g/t silver over 25.1 metres) and SL 93-105 had to be excluded from this first inferred resource estimate. Cogitore will infill drill the few required intervening intercepts in 2010, which will enable these and other holes to enhance both tonnage and grade. The report will be updated in mid-2010 or as events require."

Work is carried out by the personnel of Cogitore Resources Inc., under the supervision of Gerald Riverin, PhD, P.Geo, who prepared this release. He is a qualified person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) and has more than 31 years of experience in mineral exploration.

Cogitore explores for VMS-type deposits in areas where mineralization has been found and mined before. Exploring in such areas is preferred because of existing infrastructure, knowledgeable local workforces and broad public support for mining. Collectively, these are major competitive advantages for logistics and economics.
