Regal Announces Drill Results From the Company's Squaw Peak Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 25, 2012) - Regal Resources Inc. (CNSX:RGR) (the "Company" or "Regal") announces it has received assays from its latest drill program at the Company's Squaw Peak Project located in Yavapai County, Arizona. This drill program consisted of three core holes totaling 4,393 feet (1,339 meters). The primary target was a major deep intrusive thought to be the source of the Squaw Peak intrusive and other intrusive/breccia bodies associated with near surface copper, molybdenum and silver mineralization. SP1101, a vertical hole, drilled 2,000 feet (610 meters) north-northwest of the outcropping Squaw Peak mineralization, intersected increasing vein density with depth including 140 feet (43 meters) of +0.30% copper equivalent (see table below) between 1,605 feet (489 meters) and 1,862.5 feet (568 meters). The hole was abandoned at 1,242 feet (378 meters) due to a lack of significant alteration or veining.

SP1102, an angled core hole drilled to extend near-surface mineralization associated with the Squaw Peak intrusive 600 feet (183 meters) to the north-northwest.

SP1103 was drilled vertically 1,200 feet (365 meters) north-northeast of SP1101.

The 2011 deep drilling at Squaw Peak indicates the source of the near-surface copper-molybdenum and silver mineralization is a large intrusive body located to the north of SP1101 near the contact between Precambrian granodiorite and metavolcanic rocks. Depth to this source intrusive and possible associated mineralization is believed to be at least 3,000 feet (915 meters).
