Corazon Wins Support of Communities and Adds Three New Concessions in Northern Nicaragua Along Rio Coco River

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 12, 2012) - Corazon Gold Corp. ("Corazon" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CGW)(OTCBB:RMZFF) announces that Nicaragua's Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MEM") and the Autonomous Region of the Northern Atlantic ("RAAN") have granted Corazon three contiguous, 25-year Exploration and Exploitation Concessions located along the Rio Coco River. The three concessions, named Arcosa, Azul and Calcedonia, encompass 30,000 hectares of mineral rights and each concession is home to considerable small-scale placer and hard rock gold mining.

A map of the new concessions can be viewed at:

The three new concessions cover a regional play exploring for breccia-hosted, gold-zinc-copper deposits similar to that found historically at Coco Mina. The Coco Mina deposit was explored and partially developed by Rosario Resources and Fresnillo in the mid 1970's and is located 2 kilometers to the south of the new Arcosa concession. The geological environment hosting this deposit is believed to extend northerly into the recently granted concessions where widespread artisanal gold mines are present.

Corazon is developing a regional exploration program consisting of stream sediment surveys and reconnaissance traverses over areas of known gold mineralization. This program also includes an airborne geophysical magnetic/radiometric survey to be completed shortly.

Over the past few months, Corazon has worked closely with the numerous local communities to confirm support for exploration activities, and support has been unequivocal and extremely positive. Patrick Brauckmann, President and CEO of Corazon summarizes the team's feelings, "Corazon is extremely excited to commence exploration in this highly prospective region of Nicaragua. Historical records tell us that we are in an area of Nicaragua that could yield further world-class discoveries. Corazon has demonstrated a very clear commitment to environmental stewardship in Nicaragua and has received widespread recognition for its Community First corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy. Given these factors, both the Government of Nicaragua and the local communities have been strongly supportive of our effort to explore the area."

Corazon is also announcing the signing of, and commitment to, the United Nation's Global Compact. The program's framework has been implemented into the company's core policies and practices to uphold its obligation to sustainability and corporate citizenship.

The UN Global Compact is an internationally recognized strategic platform that allows engagement and collaboration between corporations and the UN in order to align, develop and implement policy in accordance with the UN goals. Global Compact focuses on four main areas, which include the environment, human rights, labour, and anti-corruption. More information can be found at
