Guerrero to Commence Drilling at the Chapalota Project in Sinaloa, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Guerrero Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GEX) ("Guerrero" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the field program at the Chapalota project in Sinaloa, Mexico project is progressing towards refining the Leona target for drill testing in June.

The Chapalota property is primarily an orogenic gold project and the Leona target was previously defined by geological mapping of scarce outcrops of a north-south trending fault carrying gold values up to 32.1 g/t.

An Induced Polarization (IP) dipole-dipole survey was initiated to delineate the orientation of the fault under cover. Geofisica TMC was contracted to complete seven lines of IP (2km lines at 300m spacing for 14 line kms) over the Leona target area. Initial results indicated an east dipping conductive zone that is interpreted to define the fault. Due to the apparent success of IP in detecting the fault under cover, the extent of the survey has been doubled for another seven lines of which three have been surveyed. This data is critical for positioning drillhole collars to test for mineralization along the extent of the fault.

Major drilling has been contracted to commence drilling at Leona on June 1, 2011 using a man portable diamond drill. A bulldozer is on site now improving roads for better drill access. An excavator is currently on site to trench drill lines for better geological control of the drillhole collar locations and eventually to assist with interpretation of the drill sections.

During a recent site inspection of the Leona target at the Chapalota project in Sinaloa, Mexico project, David Stadnyk, President & CEO of Guerrero Exploration Inc., stated, "The Leona target has shown significant potential for discovery. Guerrero will follow the progression of results from the Induced Polarization (IP) survey with great anticipation of success and looks forward to the commencement of the drill program."

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.), VP Exploration of the Corporation and 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.
