VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 8, 2012) - Inform Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:IRR)("Inform" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of rock and soil sampling from its 100% owned La Liga Property within the Faro Mining District, Yukon Territory, Canada, collected during the 2012 field season. The Property is located Northwest of Silver Range Resources' flagship project, which hosts multiple zones of both bulk-tonnage and high grade silver discoveries.
During the summer of 2012, Inform completed a program of mapping, rock and soil sampling targeting intrusive-related and sediment-hosted silver-lead-zinc mineralization. 1,072 soil samples and 80 rock samples were collected. Soil sampling results extended known trends of anomalous silver, lead and zinc at the Cottagers and Red Devil zones on the Galaxy claim block, and rock sampling identified high-grade silver - lead mineralization on the Old Trafford block. Large areas of the property remain unexplored, and the soil trends remain open for expansion. Highlights from the sampling program include:
- Red Devil: Extended the existing silver-lead soil anomaly 850m to the east.
- Cottagers Zone: Soil samples up to 29.3 g/t silver, extended the silver-lead soil anomaly 300m to the north and 1,000m to the east.
- Old Trafford: Rock grab samples up to 213 g/t silver and >1% lead.

The Red Devil prospect occurs within the southeast extent of a 2,000m by 500m zone of strongly anomalous silver and lead in soils. This showing covers a 250m by 70m area with a series of east-west oriented zones of strongly fractured and altered chert and clastic sediments hosting disseminated, brecciated, and veined arsenopyrite and galena mineralization. Previously reported rock grab samples from the area range from trace values to 877 g/t silver, to 1.02 g/t gold, and to 9.58% lead (see Inform news release dated December 8, 2011). Soil sampling in 2012 has extended the area of anomalous silver and lead in soils 850m to the east, and open for expansion. Silver in 2012 soil samples range from 0.2 g/t to 2.9 g/t Ag, averaging 0.7 g/t, and lead in 2012 soil samples range from 13 ppm to 168 ppm Pb, averaging 47 ppm.
The Cottagers Prospect is dominantly overburden covered with limited bedrock exposure. 2012 soil sampling has extended the area of anomalous silver - lead - zinc in soils 300m to the north and 1,000m to the east. Silver in soil values range from 0.2 to 29.3 g/t Ag, averaging 1.11 g/t; lead in soil values range from 2 ppm to 596 ppm Pb, averaging 55.7 ppm; and zinc in soil values range from 8 ppm to 554 ppm Zn, averaging 133 ppm. The anomaly is open for expansion to the north.
Reconnaissance exploration on the Old Trafford claim block identified areas of strongly quartz-sericite-pyrite altered clastic sediments and fractured chert with veined, disseminated, and locally massive lenses of pyrite and arsenopyrite. Rock grab samples from the claim block ran up to 213 g/t Ag and >1% Pb. 24 rock samples were collected from the area and ran between 0.05 g/t and 213 g/t Ag, averaging 13.5 g/t.

Assays and analyses reported above were performed at the SGS laboratory in Vancouver. The soil samples were analyzed for 36 elements by aqua regia digestion followed by inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy and mass spectrometry (ICP14B). Rock samples were analyzed for 52 elements by aqua regia digestion and inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy (ICM14B). Rock sample were analyzed for gold by fire assay followed by atomic absorption (FAA313). The 2011 field program was performed under the supervision of Jodie Gibson, P.Geo, Vice President of Exploration for Inform and Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Mr. Gibson prepared and reviewed the technical information in this news release on behalf of Inform.
