Montoro Retains Aeroquest for Airborne Surveys Over BC Rare Earth Prospects

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2011) - International Montoro Resources Inc. ("Montoro") (TSX VENTURE:IMT)(PINK SHEETS:IMTFF)(FRANKFURT:O4T) has retained Aeroquest International Limited to conduct multiple large scale geophysical and radiometric airborne surveys over the highly prospective "Tacheeda NW" and "Chuchinka NW" Rare Earth Element prospects located in 'The Rocky Mountain Rare Metal Belt' of northern British Columbia. Both of Montoro's newly acquired properties are on trend with properties held by Spectrum Mining Corp. (the "Wicheeda" discovery), who announced a 48.64 metre interval which averaged 3.55% REE, a 72.0 metre interval that averaged 2.92% REE, and a 144 metre interval which averaged 2.20% REE in three separate drill holes.

These airborne surveys will assist in identifying and prioritizing Rare Earth Element drill targets for multiple planned upcoming drill programs. The surveys will consist of approx. 1400 line kilometres and will be flown at 50 metre line spacing. The AeroMAG (Gradient & Radiometrics) system is ideal for its superior ability to contour in northern BC's rugged terrain.

Montoro's President and CEO, Gary Musil, stated, "Several significant anomalies have been discovered on our Chuchinka REE property, using airborne geophysical surveys. Our upcoming 2011 surveys will encompass the newly acquired Tacheeda NW and Chuchinka NW claims. The previous airborne surveys conducted in the area by numerous other companies (ie. Bolero Resources Corp., Canadian International Minerals Inc., Commerce Resources Corp., and Electric Metals Inc.) have all discovered numerous anomalies that have encouraged further advancing those projects into successful sampling and drilling programs, as well as additional discoveries of REE zones."

Phase 2 exploration at the "Chuchinka" REE property is now underway and will be focused on defining priority drill targets within several anomalies discovered by joint venture partner, Electric Metals Inc., through an airborne geophysical survey in 2010. The largest of these targets, measuring over 4 km by 1 km, is located near the centre of the property and is defined by a broad magnetic low associated with coincident conductive anomalies. Geochemical sampling of soils and bedrock, together with ground-based geophysics in the form of precision magnetometer and scintillometer surveying, are being applied to identify the most prospective portions of this and other REE targets in preparation for drilling.
