About Alturas Minerals Corp

Alturas is a Canadian corporation, and is the indirect parent of the Peruvian company, Alturas Minerals S.A. ("Alturas Peru") and of the Chilean company, Alturas Chile Limitada ("Alturas Chile"). Alturas Peru has been exploring various mineral projects in Peru since January 2004. Alturas Chile initiated exploration activities during the second quarter of fiscal 2010. Alturas' exploration strategy is focused on the discovery of large copper-gold porphyry/skarn deposits and epithermal gold mineralized deposits.

The principal assets of Alturas are one project in drilling stage Chapi Chapi-Utupara, and five drill-ready mineral exploration projects located in Peru and Chile, including the Sombrero, Huajoto, Ccaccapaqui and Pampa Colorada projects in Peru, and La Corina in Chile. Alturas is also advancing its two recently acquired gold-copper projects Marilin and Quispe in the Maricunga belt of northern Chile. Alturas entered into a revised agreement on its Pampa Colorada property with Origen Group S.A.C. and into an option agreement on its Ccaccapaqui project with Compañia de Minas Buenaventura S.A.A. (see press releases dated January 5th, 2012 and January 31st, 2012, respectively). In addition, Alturas has interests in three other less-advanced exploration projects in Peru (Callejones, San Antonio and La Divina).
