Mazorro Announces Option Agreement With Adventure Gold for a 100% Interest in the Dalquier Property, Abitibi, Qc

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2011) -Mazorro Resources Inc.(TSX VENTURE:MZO)(FRANKFURT:JAM) ("Mazorro" or the "Company") and Adventure GoldInc. (TSX VENTURE:AGE) ("Age") are pleased to announce that they have entered into an option agreement relating to the Dalquier property (the "Property"). The Property is located in the south-central segment of the prolific Archean Abitibi Greenstone Belt of Quebec less than 4 kilometres north of the town of Amos in the township of Dalquier, Quebec. The Property comprises a total of 85 claims covering an area of 3,500 hectares. The Company's initial work plan on the Property will include a high definition magnetic airborne survey to commence as soon as possible. Results of this survey will be reported when available this summer.

Under the terms of the agreement, Mazorro may acquire up to 100% of Adventure Gold's right, title and interest in the Dalquier Property (the "Option Agreement"). Mazorro is required to provide total cash payments of $300,000, a total of 2,000,000 common shares and has committed to conduct exploration of $2,000,000 over a period of five years from the date of the option agreement.

The Dalquier Property

The geology of the Property appears very favorable for the identification of a new polymetallic (Cu-Zn-Au-Ag) deposit. Past exploration work identified Megatem geophysical anomalies along the extensions of the Jay Copper polymetallic (Cu-Zn-Au-Ag) deposit (historical resources, non-compliant with NI 43-101, in the Main West Cu Zone of 1,950,000 short tons at 1.0% Cu and 0.7 g/t Ag and in the Lower Ag-Zn-Cu Zone of 815,000 short tons at 1.3% Cu, 3.2 % Zn, 122.8 g/t Ag; sources: SIGEOM MNRF) located south of the Property (see Figure 1: The Property also encompasses the southeastern extension of the Raymor gold-zinc deposit (historical resources, non-compliant with NI 43-101, of 500,000 tonnes at 5.5 g/t Au in Zone A; source: SIGEOM MNRF). Historically, very little drilling has been completed along the extensions of those deposits on the Property. Historical drilling intersections on the Property returned 2.7 % Zn over 7.6 metres and 5.2% Zn over 1.2 metres. At the regional scale, Osisko Mining, Aurizon Mines and Bowmore Exploration are active with exploration to the north east of the Property.

"Mazorro is very pleased to initiate a second partnership with Adventure Gold to explore and develop this polymetallic property. Addition of the Dalquier Property expands our focus on exciting Abitibi based projects. We look forward to all the benefits of working in this established Québec mining area", stated Mr. André Audet, President and CEO of Mazorro.
