Cogitore Intersects 26.7 Metres of 2.1% Copper and 5.2% Zinc at Scott Lake: New Massive Sulphide Discovery Expanded

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 17, 2010) - COGITORE Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:WOO) is pleased to report on exciting new developments at its 100% owned Scott Lake project in Quebec. The first hole drilled to follow-up the new massive sulphide discovery announced on March 31, 2010 intersected 26.7 metres of massive sulphides grading 2.1% copper, 5.2% zinc, 0.3 g/t Au and 24.9 g/t Ag as follows:

DDH SL-93-106W (weighted averages)

1107.0 1133.7 26.7 2.1 5.2 0.3 24.9 massive sulphides
1107.0 1125.2 18.2 2.8 6.4 0.4 26.7 massive sulphides
1120.5 1124.6 4.1 5.2 1.9 0.6 37.9 massive sulphides

There is not enough drilling data presently available to determine the shape and true width of the mineralized zone. A picture of the drill core is available on the Company's website at

The discovery of the new massive sulphide lens, which has been named the "CFO Lens", was made while following up a borehole PEM anomaly detected in 2008 in drill hole SL-93-106E (see press releases of September 10, 2008 and October 15, 2009). Subsequent borehole geophysics in discovery hole SC-53 indicated that SC-53 had just intersected the edge of a large conductor. The main conductive mass was interpreted to lie to the west and down from SC-53, which has now been confirmed by the mineralized interval reported above in SL-93-106W, which lies about 125 metres down and to the west of SC-53. The new 26.7 metre intersection was obtained by wedging off hole SL-93-106 drilled in 1993 (see attached Figure 1: The vertical depths of the SC-53 and SL-93-106W intersections are 909 metres and 1013 metres respectively. Another wedge cut has been started and will be completed shortly.

The CFO Lens is located along a new rhyolite horizon that is different than, and located 100 metres to the north of, the Scott rhyolite hosting the West Lens and the NI 43-101 compliant 3.6 million tonne mineral resource.

Company President Gérald Riverin, Ph.D., P. Geo. stated: "We are very excited by the substantial thickness and grade of the massive sulphides in this new hole. The mineralized zone remains open in several directions and the increase in thickness combined with the 125 metre step-out from SC-53 suggests potential for significant tonnage in the CFO Lens. Our objective at Scott Lake is to increase mineral resources prior to a preliminary scoping study, which could lead to underground exploration. We are looking forward to further testing this new lens which may dramatically change the scope of the Scott Lake Project. Credit for this new discovery must be given to our dedicated exploration team led by our Vice President Tony Brisson."

Work is carried out by the Company's personnel, under the supervision of Gérald Riverin, PhD, P.Geo. He is a qualified person (as defined by National Instrument 43-101) and has more than 30 years of experience in VMS exploration.

All drill core discussed in this press release was logged and marked up for assay at the Company's secure facility in Chibougamau, Quebec. Drill core for assay was split in half. Half of the core was shipped in sample bags to Laboratoire Expert Inc. of Rouyn-Noranda with appropriate standards, duplicates and replicates used for quality control purposes. The other half of the core is retained for future reference.

Annual General Meeting: Cogitore will hold its 2010 Annual General Meeting at 11:00 am, Monday, June 21, at Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, Thames Room, 199 Bay Street, Commerce Court West, Toronto, Ontario. 

The Company has developed a strategic focus on base metal exploration in prospective areas that also feature infrastructure favourable for mining development. Accordingly, it will focus its work in the Abitibi Belt of Quebec and Ontario.
