Guerrero Provides Progress Report on the Cerro Azul Property, Guerrero, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2011) - Guerrero Exploration Inc. ("Guerrero" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:GEX) is pleased to provide a progress report on the Cerro Azul property, Guerrero, Mexico.

The 2011 field exploration program at the Cerro Azul property commenced in February, consisting of geologic mapping and rock / soil sampling of two target areas; a group of targets located in the south half part of the concession called San Marcos-Loma Coyote-Las Parotas and Piedrillo-Cerro Azul and Tinoco, in the northernmost part of the concession.

Both target areas were visited at the beginning of the current field work program and a decision was taken to start the exploration program at the group of targets located in the south half part of Cerro Azul property.

To date 1,500 soils and 94 rock samples have been collected at this target. From the total samples collected, 1,122 soils and 77 rock samples have been submitted to the lab, though assay results have not yet been received. Several hand specimen sized samples have also been taken to be analyzed with a Terraspec handheld multi-spectral scanner as well as to get some polished sections to show the mineralization / alteration features present at Cerro Azul property and assist with the mapping.

To date, about 95% of the area proposed for soils sampling has been completed and about 65% of the proposed area has been mapped at the southern group of targets.

The next step is to complete the mapping / sampling of the southern part of Cerro Azul property and start the mapping and soils-rock sampling at Tinoco target.

Pending assay results should identify anomalies that require follow up trenching and an IP survey to better define drill targets.

David Stadnyk, President & CEO of Guerrero Exploration Inc., stated, "With our exploration model, the Cerro Azul property should begin to demonstrate the potential to find and build near surface resources on the property through our inital geologic mapping and rock/soil sampling of our two target area. We will continue to provide updates as developments occur in the coming weeks."

Assaying and Qualified Person:

Samples were taken to Hermosillo, Mexico where ALS Laboratory Group's mineral division ALS Chemex crushed and pulverized each sample. The rejects remained with ALS Chemex while the pulps were transported to ALS Chemex's ISO 9001-2008 certified laboratory in North Vancouver, BC, Canada for analysis. A QA/QC program was implemented as part of the sampling procedures for the exploration program. Duplicate, standard and blank samples were randomly inserted into the sample stream prior to being sent to the laboratory.

The scientific and technical data contained in this press release was prepared under the supervision of Troy Gill, BSc (Geol.)., a member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists, who acts as a "qualified person" under National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.
