Mundoro Provides 2012 Exploration Program Update & Corporate Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2012) - Mundoro Capital Inc. (the "Company" or "Mundoro") (TSX VENTURE:MUN) is pleased to announce an update on the exploration activity on the Company's mineral properties along the Meso Central Belt in northwestern Mexico.

Since the first quarter of 2011, Mundoro registered a local Mexican subsidiary (Mundoro de México, S.A. de C.V., "MMSA") and has staked ground in the Meso Central Belt in northwestern Mexico. To date, the Mexican General Bureau of Mines ("GBM") has granted MMSA four 100%-owned mineral concessions. Three licenses totaling ~452 sq. km. comprise the Cuencame Property and one ~221 sq. km. concession comprises the Camargo Property. The Company has twelve additional applications pending for mineral concessions totaling 1319 sq.km.

The areas which Mundoro has staked have been staked for the purpose of exploring for porphyry and epithermal related mineralization. Many of the outcropping vein type deposits in Mexico have been explored for decades and in some cases for centuries, but deeper targets around the epithermal vein deposits are now considered prospective targets, considering the discovery and development of the Penasquito Ag-Au-Pb-Zn Deposit. This latter style of mineralization has generally been under explored in Mexico.

Mundoro has completed an initial evaluation and ranking of the mineral concessions staked by the Company on the basis of: (i) air borne geophysics, (ii) favorable geology, (iii) known mineral occurrences and (iv) potentially productive structures. Results from this work have identified the most prospective areas for follow up exploration including: (i) ground magnetics, (ii) ground Induced Polarization and Resistivity, (iii) stream sediment sampling, (iv) geologic mapping and (v) ASTER imagery. The reconnaissance program began in November 2011 and is ongoing. The overall objective of the reconnaissance exploration program is to define drill targets. With completion of the reconnaissance exploration program, scheduled for mid-2012, Mundoro expects to advance the properties to the next phase of exploration, through initiation of a drilling program to test the targets in the second half of 2012.

To advance the Company's exploration efforts, Mundoro has:

  1. hired a team of five local Mexican geologists to conduct the field exploration programs;
  2. engaged Dr. Richard Tosdal to review the exploration programs in Mexico and work with our exploration team on a focused exploration work program for 2012; Dr. Tosdal is a former Director of the Mineral Deposit Research Unit at the University of British Columbia where he supervised collaborative industry-university research projects on 5 continents investigating a wide range of deposits and their environments. In 2009, Dr. Tosdal became an independent geologist to consult with the minerals industry around the world;
  3. Michel Cormier has stepped down as Vice President of Exploration, effective immediately. The Company thanks Mr. Cormier for his assistance in initiating exploration operations for the Company in Mexico and wish Mr. Cormier continuing success in future endeavours; and
  4. hired Mr. George Magaranov as Senior Exploration Manager for South Eastern Europe. Mr. Magaranov has over 17 years international mineral exploration and evaluation experience in a range of geographic locations in Eastern Europe, Middle East, Latin America, West Africa and Asia. Much of his experience was gained working as project and senior project geologist for Anglo American and Rio Tinto. He has managed drilling programs, designed and participated in targets generation and project evaluation programs for Au, Base metals and Iron ore in Russian Far East, Chile, Turkey, Iran, Mali and Ghana West Africa. Mr. Magaranov is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

The Company has accepted Mr. Louis MacEachern's desire to retire from the board. Mr. MacEachern has agreed to make his services available to the Company as a consultant whenever requested. As Mr. MacEachern has been a director of Mundoro since 2003, the board of directors sincerely thanks Mr. MacEachern for his valuable contributions to the board of this Company for close to a decade of service and wishes Mr. MacEachern continued success in his business ventures.

The Company has also appointed Mr. Michael Calyniuk to the board of directors, effective February 8th, 2012 and appointed Mr. Calyniuk as Chair of the Audit Committee. Mr. Calyniuk will be retiring as a partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in June 2012. Mr. Calyniuk has worked for more than 30 years in audit and more recently in their advisory Performance Improvement, Risk and Technology Practice focusing on governance and strategy. He has had considerable exposure to Boards, Audit Committees and Risk, Governance and special committees in mergers, acquisitions and special reviews. Currently Mr. Calyniuk is a Chapter Chair of the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) - the BC Chapter - and holds a Director's ICD.D certification.

Mundoro's CEO & President added "In 2011, Mundoro expanded its area of interest beyond China to focus on proven mineral belts which the Company believes have strong exploration potential and could prove to be focus areas for our industry over the next five years. We have built a strong team of in-house geologists and external consultants to provide the right balance of execution with leading experts insights for the exploration of our projects. The Company is well funded to execute on the exploration strategy in Mexico and has generated a pipeline of projects, characterized by sizeable land packages and district-wide potential, that can meet the Company's growth needs going forward."

On behalf of the Company,
