About Dorato Resources Inc.

Dorato Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration company focused on the highly prospective Cordillera del Condor Gold District in northern Peru and adjacent to the border with Ecuador – one of the most important gold-bearing districts in the region since pre-Incan times.

Modern exploration on the Ecuadorian side of the border has successfully delineated a number of world-class gold and copper deposits including Kinross Gold's Fruta del Norte gold deposit with inferred resources of 13.6 million ounces gold at 7.23 g/t gold. The Peruvian portion of the Cordillera, while sharing key geological features and stratigraphy, has remained almost entirely unexplored until now.

Dorato, through a series of option agreements, has the right to wholly acquire an extensive land package of approximately 800 square kilometres – providing the Company a highly strategic position in this emergent gold district. Dorato is well funded and possesses experienced management with a proven track record. The technical information with respect to the above deposits was obtained through the respective companies' public disclosure documents available on SEDAR.

On behalf of the board of directors of DORATO RESOURCES INC.
