Molycor Gold Corp.: Surface Sampling Extends the Magnesium Zone an Additional 1000 Meters

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - Larry W. Reaugh, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Molycor Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MOR)(PINK SHEETS:MLYFF)(FRANKFURT:M1V) ("Molycor" or the "Company") reports rock chip and outcrop sample assays up to 13% Mg were received from this summer's geological surface mapping and rock sampling program on the Tami-Mosi Magnesium property, located 6.5 miles east of Ely, Nevada.

The program consisted of sampling the identified dolomite blocks to determine the surface dimensions. To date the area of the Tami-Mosi dolomites have been interpreted to cover 126.45 Ha with an average thickness of 144 meters and a strike length over 4130 meters.

51 samples were tested within the property and are listed below:

The dolomite block is of as high a purity as those past producers of magnesium from dolomite and near identical to the National Institute of Standards & Technology Standard Reference Material 88b. (See news releases dated Jan 20, 2009, July 07, 2009 and Sept 15, 2010).

Management is currently in discussions with consultants with the expertise and knowledge of the global magnesium market and operations. The Company will be seeking the funding to facilitate the completion of a Preliminary Economic Assessment in order to advance the project to its next level of development.

Assays were performed by ALS Chemex Laboratories, located in Vancouver, British Columbia.

About Magnesium:

Although magnesium is found in over 60 minerals, only dolomite, magnesite, brucite, carnallite and olivine are of commercial importance. Magnesium and other magnesium compounds are also produced from seawater, well and lake brines and bitterns. Magnesium metal's principal use is as an alloying addition to aluminum, and these aluminum-magnesium alloys are used mainly for beverage cans; another major use of Magnesium is as an alloy in the structural components of automobiles and machinery. Magnesium also is used to remove sulphur from iron and steel.

In 2009, magnesium was produced by only one company in the USA at a plant in Utah by an electrolytic process that recovered magnesium from brines from the Great Salt Lake. China produces approximately 80% of the world's magnesium and enjoys market dominance. The American government has placed countervailing duties against Chinese imports.
