Pepper Rock Resources Updates Silver/Gold/Copper Resource Exploration Activities

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 29, 2011) - Pepper Rock Resources Corp. (OTCQB: PEPR) (PINKSHEETS: PEPR) (the "Company") is pleased to present a review of activities regarding the Company's ongoing joint venture mineral exploration projects in British Columbia, Canada.

In January 2011, Pepper Rock Resources entered into a joint venture agreement to explore certain prospective mineral claims known as the Man/Prime properties with JV partner Candorado Operating Company Ltd., a junior exploration company primarily focused on the Quesnel Trough of central British Columbia.

Currently, Pepper Rock and Candorado have commenced joint exploration activities on the 1,544 hectares copper/gold property located 36km north of the historic mining town of Princeton in the south-central area of the province where regional efforts by other companies have recently uncovered and qualified measured and indicated copper resource estimates as high as 5 billion pounds. Production at the rate of 100 million pounds per year of the copper resource including gold and silver credits has been announced to commence in 2011.

Copper-gold mineralization has been identified and documented in the area since the 1930s and include activities between 1979 to 1981 by Newmont Mining which extensively explored the Man/Prime property with a program that included soil sampling, geological mapping, induced polarization (IP) and ground magnetometer surveys, trenching and 2,550 metres of diamond drilling. During this period, one of Newmont's drill intercepts reported 63.6 m of 0.45% copper and 0.76 g/t gold. From 1981 to 1992, further geophysical surveys, soil sampling and 1,508 metres of drilling were completed and drilling was undertaken at Man/Prime in 1988 by Brican Resources Ltd with reports that two drill holes produced assays of 193.9 metres of 0.29% copper and 0.27 g/t gold and 28.0 metres of 0.33% copper and 0.57 g/t gold.

Given the extent of documented occurrences of viable copper values and consistent gold shows, both on the property and regionally, the Company has moved rapidly ahead to secure permitting and has commenced its initial work program in order to geologically map the property including a re-examination of the 2007 and 2008 drill cores from both the Prime and Man Zones. The extended work plan encompasses 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 as a Phase 1 program. Pending results, a Phase 2 program of additional soil geochemistry and trenching, followed by diamond drilling is anticipated in order to develop a fully qualified resource assessment.

Additionally, the company recently entered into an option agreement with ANK Consulting, LLC at the Alexandria Property located in north central British Columbia. The property is prospective for silver and Management has acquired exploratory access permits whereby the Company aims to implement a work plan including mapping, trenching, sampling and drilling in order to develop a qualified resource estimate for the property during its 2011 field activities.

The Company is highly optimistic that the 2011 work program will significantly increase the overall understanding of the regional opportunity and economic viability towards the development of commercial mining interests in the area.
