Sungro Enters Into Amendment to Definitive Agreement for Acquisition of Conglomerate Mesa Claims

SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 18, 2009) - Sungro Minerals Inc. (the "Company") (OTCBB:SUGO) today announced the entry into an amendment to the Mineral Agreement dated August 27, 2009 between the Company and certain individual owners (the "Owners") of 331 unpatented lode mining claims situated in Inyo County, California, known as the "Conglomerate Mesa Claims". Under the terms of the amended mineral agreement between the parties, the Company advanced amounts of $52,840 to the Owners in consideration of which the Owners agreed to extend the closing date of the Mineral Agreement to September 30, 2009. Amounts advanced by the Company to the Owners in connection with the amendment agreement were used to pay for the claim maintenance fees to extend the Conglomerate Mesa Claims and are credited towards the Company's annual exploration expenditures upon closing of the transaction. Prior to entering into the amendment agreement, the Company received an unsecured bridge loan of $100,000 from a third party lender to secure payment of the claim maintenance fees and for ongoing working capital expenses of the Company.

Closing of the acquisition of the Conglomerate Mesa claims, is subject to the following conditions: payment to the Owners of $200,000 upon closing of the transaction (the "Closing Funds") and a further amount of $150,000 on August 1, 2010, $200,000 on August 1, 2011, and instalments of $250,000 commencing on August 1 of each year thereafter (subject to increase based on positive increases to the consumer price index); issuance to the Owners of 2,500,000 shares of the Company's common stock in instalments; the grant to the Owners of a production royalty (the "Royalty") consisting of four percent (4%) of the net smelter returns on sale proceeds received by the Company from the sale of minerals from the property; the Company expending a minimum of $100,000 annually on exploring, prospecting or developing the property; receipt of a title opinion reflecting ownership of the claims; and receipt of all required regulatory approvals. The issuance to the Owners of 2,500,000 shares of the Company's common stock is, further subject to either the expiration of current temporary cease trade order from the British Columbia Securities Commission or, if any further extension is granted by the Commission, a variation of such extension to permit the issuance of the 2,500,000 shares. There is no assurance that the transaction will be completed as planned or at all.

About the Conglomerate Mesa Project

The Conglomerate Mesa Project hosts structurally and stratigraphically controlled, sediment-hosted gold mineralization similar to the "Carlin-type" deposits of north-central Nevada. The property was originally explored by Newmont Mining Corporation while it was within the Cerro Gordo Wilderness Study Area (WSA). Newmont withdrew from Conglomerate Mesa in 1993. Federal agencies dropped the property's WSA status the following year. The core area of the Conglomerate Mesa property was explored by BHP Billiton in 1995, with eight target zones identified, based partly on surface road cut channel samples. In 1997, BHP conducted a widely-spaced, 10-hole reverse-circulation drill program at Conglomerate Mesa.
