Redzone Resources (REZ) Announces Lara Drill Results With 800m Intersection 0.33% CuEq Over 235 m Inclined Width (203.5 m True Width)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 27, 2012) - Redzone Resources Limited (TSX:REZ) today announced the completion and results of the successful 2011/2012 diamond drilling campaign on the Lara Copper joint venture property in southern Peru, Ayacucho department.

REZ successfully drilled ten diamond drill holes totaling 4,700 m before the onset of the Peruvian rainy season.

The objective of the 2011 drill program was to test the IP and magnetic geophysical survey results for the potential of large and deep hypogene mineralization, as suggested by the ground geophysical results. In addition, the drilling program was designed to test the extent of the near-surface oxide-enrichment.

Highlights of late 2011 diamond drilling include some wide mineralized intersections:

Copper equivalents calculated represents the total value for each metal, multiplied by the conversion factor, summed and expressed in equivalent copper grades. These results are exploration results only and no allowance is made for metallurgical recoveries. The conversion factors used were: CuEq in percent was calculated using US$2.80 per pound of copper and US$16 per pound of molybdenum using the following formula:

CuEq= copper % + (Mo% X 5.71428571) + (Ag (g/t) X 0.01041667)

Diamond drilling results from ddh-LA-45 indicate that the mineralization footprint can be extended from the original resource area by 800 m to the east (Socos) and that the hypogene type mineralization extends to up to 300 metres vertical depth at 0.3% and 0.5 % CuEq grade. The mineralized footprint appears to be strongly controlled by east west structures. All drill holes of this program where drilled at 270° with an inclination of 60°.

The mineralized footprint as determined by new drilling indicates that the zone extends from 2 km to 2.5 km east west and up to 1 km north south, and remains open to the south west.

Diamond drilling results have been reviewed for QAQC by Lions Gate Geological Contractors, Vancouver, Canada.

Follow up analysis and compilation of results is currently in progress and is expected to be complete by the end of March 2012. An in-fill drilling program be designed with the objective to determine the resource potential of the deposit.

"Redzone is pleased with the outcome of our Q3 2011 to early 2012 exploration program. We have very successfully permitted, mapped, sampled, surveyed and drilled 4,700 m of the Lara copper porphyry system significantly extending the mineralization footprint from the original resource to a very significant mineralization system," stated Mr. Murphy.
