Medoro Resources Announces 2010 Year End Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Medoro Resources Ltd. (TSX:MRS)(TSX:MRS.WT) announced today the release of its audited consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2010, together with its Management's Discussion and Analysis for the corresponding period.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, Medoro reported revenues of $28 million, compared with nil for the year ended December 31, 2009. The revenues for 2010 were entirely due to Mineros Nacionales S.A., which was acquired by the Company in February 2010. Mineros Nacionales owns the Zona Baja license at the Marmato Project and operates the Mineros Nacionales underground gold mine. During the year ended December 31, 2010, Mineros Nacionales sold 21,395 ounces of gold at a weighted average price of US$1,244.90 per ounce and 32,556 ounces of silver at a weighted average price of US$20.53 per ounce.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported a net loss of $41.5 million or $0.30 per share, compared to a net loss of $9.9 million or $0.18 per share for the year ended December 31, 2009. The increase in net loss of $31.6 million was primarily a result of the $30.1 million write-down of the Company's Venezuela properties, an increase in general and administrative costs by $5.8 million, employment related costs of $1.0 million, offset by a gross profit of $5.2 million from the Company's operations at Mineros Nacionales.

The financial statements and MD&A will be posted on the Company's website at www.medororesources.com and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
