Chancery Resources Announces Plans to Commence Development at El Cafetal Gold Mine

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - December 18, 2008) - Chancery Resources Inc. (Chancery) (OTCBB: CCRY) is pleased to announce that its 2009 plans will be focused on developing infrastructure at El Cafetal Gold Mine located in the historic Valparaiso gold mining district, Colombia. Chancery's plans include a complete upgrade of the existing processing plant by installing a modern mineral recovery plant to increase production rates. As the current processing plant in place captures only gold, on a marginal capacity, the objective of the new processing plant would be capturing gold, other mineral deposits maximizing cash flow, lowering operating costs and diversifying the company's portfolio of commodities.

It is anticipated after Chancery's geologists assessment of the equipment in place that with a modest investment the actual recovery plant can be put back to work to be used as a pilot plant with a capacity of 15 to 20 tons per day. After assessment the type of ore and the right process of the production can be scaled to 100 ton/day based on the multiple sectors that can be exploited at the same time. The upgraded processing plant should greatly assist and accelerate Chancery's plan to fund and expand in size the El Cafetal concession.

Jeffrey Fanning, Vice President of Exploration, commented: "We expect El Cafetal mine to be a low-cost producer, demonstrating good profit margins. We look forward to reporting further on El Cafetal's operations in the near future."
