Dorato Focuses on Exploration on the Deborah Property and Allows Cordillera del Condor to Lapse

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 23, 2013) - Dorato Resources Inc. ("Dorato" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:DRI)(FRANKFURT:DO5) announces that it will be proceeding with the next work program on its Deborah property, in southern Cajamarca region, which will consist of about 800 metres of hand trenching and channel sampling on both the Central and Northeast targets (http://www.doratoresources.com/s/Cajamarca.asp). As well, the soil sample grid at the Northeast Target will be extended to the north to close off the multi-element anomaly there. The work program is subject to the Company raising adequate funding.

Due to current market conditions, the Company was unable to raise sufficient funds to cover the title payments on the properties within the Cordillera del Condor, located in northern Peru. The mineral titles have been allowed to expire, as required under Peruvian law.
