Pepper Rock Resources Receives Independent Engineering Report on Copper/Gold Property in Canada

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Pepper Rock Resources Corp. (OTCQB: PEPR) (PINKSHEETS: PEPR) ("Pepper Rock" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it is in receipt of a National Instrument (N.I.) 43-101 compliant report provided by Candorado Operating Company, Ltd. ("Candorado") as joint venture partners at the Man/Prime Property in British Columbia, Canada.

On January 3, 2011, the Company entered into an exclusive Option Agreement with Candorado whereby Pepper Rock was granted a 70% interest at the 1,544 hectares Man/Prime property. The report authored by Discovery Consultants of Vernon, B.C., identifies two zones of copper-gold porphyry style mineralization, known as the Man and the Prime Zones, on the Property, which has seen intermittent mineral exploration over the past 50 years.

The authors provide information regarding historic work including efforts by Newmont and Brican, as well as recent efforts including magnetometer and induced polarization ("IP") surveys, a soil geochemical survey over the northern part of the IP grid covering most of the Prime Zone which delineated three copper-in-soil geochemical anomalies and a drill program consisting of 19 holes totaling 4,042 meters. Fifteen of these holes, totaling 3,340 m, were drilled on the Man Zone in and around the area of known mineralization. Three of these holes encountered significant intersections of intrusive-hosted copper-gold mineralization approximately 150 meters southwest of the area of known mineralization.

The report concludes that significant mineralized intersections of copper and gold were encountered in the area of geochemical Anomaly 3 of the Prime Zone, where mineralization can be seen in surface exposures. Additional significant mineralized intersections were encountered on the southwest corner of the Man Zone with the possibility of a further west-southwest extension to the mineralization. The report authors believe the area is a Property of Merit with two known zones of copper-gold mineralization.

In conclusion, it is determined that the geology and structure of the Property is undoubtedly very complex but incomplete and poorly known. Consequently, an integrated program of excavator trenching, geological mapping, reexamination of drill cores, construction of vertical cross-sections, detailed interpretation of geophysical surveys and additional soil geochemistry is recommended as a Phase 1 program. Pending results, a Phase 2 program of additional soil geochemistry and trenching, followed by diamond drilling is recommended.
