Guerrero Acquires the Cibola Property in the Guerrero Gold Belt

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 20, 2012) - Guerrero Exploration Inc. ("Guerrero" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GEX)(PINKSHEETS:GUEEF)(FRANKFURT:2GU) is pleased to announce it has now successfully staked an additional 42,682 hectares of highly prospective land known as the Cibola property in the Guerrero Gold Belt.

Held under Guerrero's 100% owned subsidiary, Minera GRXPL, S.A. DE C.V., the Cibola property has three significant magnetic anomalies and four highly anomolous gold in stream sediment samples in a geological setting similar to Goldcorp's Los Filos gold mine, currently the largest gold mine in Mexico, which produced over 335,000 oz in 2011 and currently contains over 5,470,000 proven and probable ounces (www.goldcorp.com). Upon receiving final government permit approval, Guerrero will be commencing a comprehensive exploration program on the Cibola property.

Guerrero's President and CEO, David Stadnyk stated: "We are excited to have increased our land size in such a world-class mining district among some of the largest gold discoveries in Mexico. Our Cibola, Coatepec, and Cerro Azul properties are highly prospective and positioned for discovery. We are moving aggressively towards becoming one of the leading land owners in the Guerrero Gold Belt and the Guerrero state. With 28 million shares outstanding and a market cap of $4 million, the stage has been set for Guerrero in 2012."

The Cibola property is one of the largest contiguous land packages in the highly prospective Guerrero Gold Belt, in close proximity to producing gold mines and significant gold discoveries including Newstrike Capital's Ana Paula project, Cayden Resources Inc.'s Morelos Sur gold project, Industrias Peñoles S.A.B. de C.V.'s Rey de Plata sulphide deposit, and Torrex Gold's Morelos Project, containing over 3 million oz measured and indicated. The acquisition of the Cibola property will bring the Company's total land position in the state of Guerrero to over 81,000 hectares of highly prospective properties. The area remains underexplored and is becoming one of the most prolific gold producing regions in the world, continually unveiling new discoveries.

Mineralization in the Guerrero Gold Belt was originally discovered in 1924 and has continued to grow since. The Guerrero Gold Belt now has an inventory of over 15 million ounces of gold, which continues to increase with ongoing exploration and/or mine development in the area and provides an excellent platform for exploration and development.
