Guerrero Announces Letter of Intent to Acquire Pinette Copper Corp., Private Placement Closing and Amendment

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 25, 2012) - Guerrero Exploration Inc. ("Guerrero" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:GEX) announces that it has, by mutual agreement, terminated the Option Amendment and Reorganization Agreement with Riverside Resources Inc. announced earlier, and has determined that it will not pursue its option on the Chapalota property in Mexico. It has, subject to regulatory approval, entered into a binding letter of intent to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of Pinette Copper Corp ("Pinette"), a private Vancouver-based mineral exploration company with 2 exploration properties located in Botswana. Pinette has had these copper exploration properties for the last approximately 2 and 3 years respectively and has spent a total of approximately $2,500,000 to date on them. Exploration is ongoing.

The letter of intent provides that Guerrero will issue approximately 33,809,885 to the shareholders of Pinette, a nominee of Pinette will join the board of Guerrero, and the current private placement of up to $250,000 will be increased to up to $1,000,000 on the same terms. Current management will continue although the Corporation will issue 4,080,000 common shares at a deemed price of $0.05 per share to settle any obligations it may have under existing consulting agreements. The Corporation will also pay a finder's fee of 1,250,000 shares to a third party. This transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by the Pinette shareholders, due diligence and regulatory approval.

The Corporation has closed on the first $250,850 of the above noted private placement. Securities issued on this closing are subject to resale restrictions until November 26, 2012.

The Corporation also announces the recent resignation of Peter Miles from the board, and wishes to thank him for his service during his tenure on the board.
