(TSX VENTURE:PCR) ("Pinecrest" or the "Company) is pleased to announce that a Phase 1 exploration program has begun on the Company's Espiritu polymetallic vein/breccia project, Sonora, Mexico. Pursuant to the terms of an option agreement with Kootenay Gold Inc.

Pinecrest is the operator on the project (see Pinecrest News Release dated February 28th, 2011).

The Phase 1 exploration program will focus on the south-western portion of the property where mineralization is characterised by veins, breccias and stockworks anomalous in silver, gold, copper, lead and zinc. The main mineralization in the south-west is defined by several zones spread along a two km length. Fifty-eight grab samples were collected by Kootenay Gold in 2009-2010 within the west, central and eastern parts of the southwest polymetallic vein/breccia zone. The polymetallic veins averaged 226 g/t Ag, 1.58% Pb, 1.57% Zn associated with 0.18 g/t Au and 0.15% Cu. The current exploration program on the Espiritu property will include prospecting, geological mapping, trenching, rock chip sampling and diamond drilling of high priority targets.
