Coro Announces Sale of Valley High Shares and Provides Funding Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 22, 2010) - Coro Mining Corp. ("Coro" or the "Company") (TSX:COP) announces that it has disposed of 5,850,000 shares in Valley High Ventures Ltd ("Valley High") for gross proceeds of $6.4 million on the Pure Trading marketplace operated by CNSX Markets Inc. Subsequent to the disposition, Coro holds 3,290,353 shares (approximately 5.4% of the issued and outstanding shares of Valley High) and 1,525,000 warrants. Prior to the disposition, Coro held 9,140,353 shares and 1,525,000 warrants in Valley High which as of November 19, 2010 represented approximately 15.0% of the issued and outstanding shares of Valley High.

Alan Stephens, President and CEO of Coro commented, "This disposition is by no means a reflection on the potential we see in Valley High, which over the last twelve months has augmented its management team and continues to advance and enhance its exploration portfolio. As a shareholder, we will continue to follow its progress with interest. By selling part of our shareholding in Valley High, we have ensured that Coro's exploration and development projects are fully funded in the near term on a non-dilutive basis to our shareholders. We also plan to significantly increase our exploration efforts in Chile, focusing on the search for high quality copper and gold prospects."

The sale of the Valley High shares, combined with the potential proceeds (approx. $5.6m) from the outstanding in-the-money $0.20 warrants in Coro, which expire in January & February 2011, would provide a total of $12.0 million in financing for Coro. This will ensure that the Company is adequately funded to complete a pre-feasibility study and conduct additional drilling at its advanced San Jorge copper and gold project, located in the province of Mendoza, Argentina. It also gives Coro sufficient funds to continue to advance its exploration portfolio in Chile starting with the recently announced drill campaign at the Chacay copper porphyry project.

This news release is being issued pursuant to Part 3 of National Instrument 62-103 The Early Warning System and Related Take-Over Bid and Insider Reporting Issues of the Canadian Securities Administrators. A copy of the report filed by Coro in connection with the disposition of the common shares is available on Valley High's SEDAR profile, and it can also be obtained directly from Coro by contacting Michael Philpot, Executive Vice-President, at 604-682-5546.
