Sinchao Metals Announces Discovery of 194 Metres Grading 0.43% Copper and 0.69 g/t Gold on the Sinchao Property, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 18, 2007) - Sinchao Metals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SMZ) is pleased to announce the results from Drill Hole SDH-11, drilled on the Breccia Zone at the Sinchao Property. Assays have been received for the interval 0.0m to 277.1m. Drill Hole SDH-11 intersected limestone, skarn, dacitic volcanics and breccia with clasts of limestone and quartzite.

Significant intersections are as follows:

From To Interval Copper Gold Silver
m m m % g/t g/t

77.3 271.4 194.1 0.43 0.69 17.1


77.3 133.3 56.0 1.10 1.08 36.0

161.9 223.0 61.1 0.28 0.84 16.6

251.8 271.4 19.6 0.34 0.55 12.9

These are drill intersections and true widths have not yet been determined.

Drill Hole SDH-11 is an uppercut of Diamond Drill Hole SDH-10, drilled in 1998 and which intersected 376m grading 0.43% Copper, 0.56 g/t Gold, and 16.2 g/t Silver. SDH-11 was located approximately 10m from the collar of SDH-10, and drilled at an azimuth of 225 degrees and an inclination of -45 degrees. Drill Hole SDH-11 has been completed at a total depth of 400m, and logging and sampling of the interval 277.1 to 400m is in progress.

Drill Hole SDH-11 has confirmed the subvertical nature of the Breccia Zone, which was intersected in three holes during the 1998 drilling, over an area of approximately 400m by 600m and which remains open. Step out drilling 150m to both the north and south of this section is underway. The Breccia Zone remains open in all directions and additional drilling will be required to define the mineralization.
