Mazorro Resources Provides Corporate Update and Grants Stock Options to New Director

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2012) - Mazorro Resources Inc. ("Mazorro" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MZO)(FRANKFURT:JAM) is pleased to provide a corporate update on its current status and planned activities. Mazorro currently has a cash position of approximately $300,000 hard (non-flow-through) dollars. Given the challenging financial markets which have significantly impacted most junior exploration company share prices and have limited access to new financing at reasonable valuations, Mazorro has taken several actions to minimize its cash burn rate.

These initiatives include the following:

  • Mazorro has curtailed discretionary spending on promotion activities and investor relations road shows for a period continuing at least through the balance of the summer;
  • The Company's CEO has voluntarily reduced his monthly compensation by $8,000 per month;
  • Mazorro has terminated the Dalquier property option agreement and will not incur any further exploration costs or option or share payments for this property. Termination of the Dalquier property option agreement allows Mazorro to be a purely gold focused exploration company and to dedicate its resources and focus on the Lapaska gold project in Val d'Or.

For the Lapaska project, the Company has incurred approximately $1.4 million in exploration expenditures to date. This leaves a balance of approximately $300,000 in exploration expenditures to be incurred in order to vest a 50% ownership interest in the Lapaska project. Under the terms of the Lapaska option agreement completion of these expenditures are required prior to December 31, 2013. The Company plans to initiate a next drilling campaign which would complete the exploration expenditure requirements as soon as market conditions support financing at reasonable valuations.

In other news, the Company has granted Mr. Neil Richardson 250,000 stock options exercisable at $0.10 per stock option. These stock options expire on July 25, 2017 and are subject to the terms and conditions of the Company's stock option plan. Mr. Richardson was recently elected as a director of Mazorro at the Company's annual and special meeting. This grant of stock options is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance.
