Zinccorp Resources Inc. Samples 1170 g/t Gallium, 60.3 g/t Germanium and 24.1 g/t Indium at Michelle Project

- 15 MINERALIZED SAMPLES FROM 7 DIFFERENT ZONES AVERAGE 221 G/T GALLIUM, 7.4 G/T INDIUM, 6.4 G/T GERMANIUM

- PREVIOUS DRILLING HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE 7.9 METERS OF 22.71% ZINC, 17.38% LEAD, 510 G/T SILVER, 253 PPM GALLIUM

- 2010 DRILL PROGRAM PLANNING CURRENTLY UNDERWAY

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2010) - Zinccorp Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZN) (the 'Company') is pleased to announce that high grade zinc, lead and silver mineralization has been found to be enriched in Gallium, Germanium and Indium, specialty metals which are valued for their use in various high tech and green manufactured products. Zinccorp is planning a 2010 diamond drill program at the Michelle Project in north-central Yukon Territory to test for these base, precious and specialty metals. Fifteen mineralized zones have been discovered within an area roughly 12 kilometres by 7 kilometres.

"The Michelle property has numerous high grade targets that are enriched in specialty metals in addition to the more common zinc, lead and silver, and which add substantial value to this project. The gross metal value of the Michelle project is extremely high, and warrants a considerable effort to evaluate," comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "2010 promises to be an exciting year for exploration at Michelle, in addition to starting early stage exploration on a number of recently acquired properties in the West Timmins gold district."

Exploration at the Michelle Property has revealed zinc, lead, silver and gallium mineralization in dominantly carbonate and oxide form (with minor lead sulphide) over an area measuring roughly 12 kilometres by 7 kilometres. Limited sampling for Germanium and Indium has revealed highly elevated values in these metals as well. Gallium, Germanium and Indium are essential components of certain types of semiconductors including solar photovoltaic cells and thin film solar cells, as well as in LCD displays and certain types of transistors.

15 samples collected in 2009 from seven different zones and re-analyzed for Germanium and Indium averaged 221.7 g/t Gallium (maximum value 1170 g/t), 7.4 g/t Indium (maximum value 24.1 g/t) and 6.4 g/t Germanium (maximum value 60.3 g/t) in addition to 190 g/t Silver, 13.6% Lead and 13.3% Zinc. Only one of seven zones tested in 2009 had low values of all of these metals. Exploration in 2007 returned high values in these metals from the Peak, Gully and Dynasty zones, however the 2008 program did not analyze for them. Elevated levels of these rare metals add substantially to the gross metal value of the mineralization, and potential value of the project.

Mineralization at Michelle is hosted by upper Cambrian to lower Devonian carbonate rocks of the Bouvette formation.

The 2010 exploration program at Michelle (see Zinccorp press release dated January 26, 2010) will look for patterns of enrichment in Gallium, Germanium and Indium in addition to Zinc, Lead and Silver.

Zinccorp Resources owns 100% of the Michelle Property.
