QRS Capital Corp. Receives Final Technical Report for the Aurum Property, Chile

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 10, 2013) - QRS Capital Corp. ("QRS" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:QRS) is pleased to announce that it has filed a technical report on the Company's flagship Aurum Property. The report dated, May 10, 2013, was prepared by Terence Walker, M.Sc., P.Geo., an independent Consulting Geologist, and wasfiled on SEDAR on May 27, 2013.

The Aurum Property consists of 41 contiguous claims, 17 exploitation concessions and 24 exploration concessions totalling 8,908 hectares. The Aurum Property is situated within San Felix Fault and fold belt, 72 kilometres east-southeast of the city of Vallenar, Region III, Chile and 16 kilometres SW of Teck Resources Ltd.'s Relincho porphyry copper - molybdenum deposit (Proven and Probable Reserves; 1.1 billion metric tons grading 0.41% copper and 0.021% molybdenum according to the Teck Resources Ltd.'s Annual Information Form of March 15, 2012). The report also notes the good access and closes proximity to water and power on Aurum year round and access to the property by dirt road.


The report concludes that, "Based on the site visits to the Aurum Property, the data review and interpretation, the independent 2007 resource estimate of SRK Chile, classification of the current project area, as well as un-tested extensions of the central CTR ("Carmen Tabaco Resource") and the newly identified "East Mineral Belt", the author believes that the area holds good potential for significantly increasing the current copper oxide resource estimates. The deeper primary sulphide copper mineralisation below the CTR area is largely unexplored. The underlying IP anomalies however, suggest good potential to also develop sulphide copper resources below the oxides."


Mr. Walker recommends a two-phase drill program to further delineate the copper-silver potential of the Aurum Property.

Phase 1 is designed to evaluate the largely unexplored sulphide copper mineralization below the current CTR and further explore the Dolores Mine area with a view to establishing drill targets. The proposed Phase 1 exploration programs will involve 1,250 metres of drilling in the Carmen Main area and detailed geological mapping, rock and soil geochemical, IP and MAG surveys in the Dolores Mine area.

Phase 2 is designed to expand the historic mineral resource and delineate the size and continuity of the sulphide zones at Carmen Main target, drill test the Dolores Mine targets established in Phase 1 and further explore the Aurum II, L5000 West, Aurum IV and East Anomaly target areas. Proposed Phase 2 exploration programs will involve 4,000 metres of drilling in the Carmen Main target, 1,750 metres of drilling to test priority targets in the Dolores Mine area, detailed geological mapping, rock and soil geochemical testing, IP surveys in the Aurum II, L5000 West, Aurum IV and East Anomaly target areas. Preliminary metallurgical testing of drill core and environmental studies are also planned during Phase 2.

The estimated total cost of the proposed follow up exploration programs (more particularly described in the technical report) is US$3,642,700.

The above information has been prepared under the supervision of Mr. Terence Walker P.Geo., who is a "Qualified Person" for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Walker has reviewed the information in this press release and has verified the authenticity and validity of the data.
