Cogitore Resources Resumes Drilling on Scott Lake and Estrades-Caribou Projects

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2010) - COGITORE Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOO) is pleased to announce the resumption of drilling at its 100% owned Scott Lake project and at its Estrades and adjoining Caribou property.

The drilling program at Scott Lake will initially complete drilling along the eastern extension of the resources reported on January 7, 2010 (which totalled 3.6 million tonnes grading 1.1% copper, 5.2% zinc, 0.3 g/t gold and 36 g/t silver). Subsequently, a series of holes will be drilled to test exploration targets in the immediate vicinity of the deposit, including an off-hole anomaly detected from drill hole SC-31 approximately 150 metres below hole SC-45, and an off-hole geophysical anomaly detected from drill hole SL-91-106E mentioned in previous press releases.

At the Estrades-Caribou project, the drill program has begun testing the extension of last year's Caribou discovery at depth and to the east. As well, a number of geophysical targets along strike of the new massive sulphides will be tested. In 2009, the Company announced the discovery of high grade massive sulphides with drill holes CAR-02, CAR-04, CAR-06 and CAR-07 which yielded an average core length of 1.8 metres grading 3.79% copper, 7.03% zinc, 1.93 g/t gold and 70.0 g/t silver. This new deposit is located about 4 kilometres to the west of the Estrades mine and is located along the same volcanic horizon as the Estrades deposit. A deep penetrating ground geophysical survey (InfiniTEM) has been initiated on the property to further explore the Estrades mine horizon and to detail a number of MegaTEM airborne geophysical anomalies.

Work is carried out by the personnel of Cogitore Resources Inc., under the supervision of President Gerald Riverin, PhD, P.Geo. He is a qualified person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) and has more than 30 years of experience in VMS exploration.

The Company has developed a strategic focus on base metal exploration in prospective areas that also feature infrastructure favourable for mining development. Accordingly, it will focus its work in the Abitibi Belt of Quebec and Ontario, and in the Central Belt of Newfoundland.
