Sinchao Metals Conducts a Review of Its Property Ownership

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) - The Board of Directors of Sinchao Metals Corp. ("Sinchao" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SMZ) announces that during a recent review of the Company's properties it has become apparent that four of the property claims comprising the Sinchao Project, which were the subject of a title opinion rendered at the time of the Company's formation in 2006, were not properly registered by the former owner, a subsidiary of Andean American Gold Corp. As a result of this property review, Sinchao has determined that it does not have valid ownership of the properties in question and the Company is taking immediate steps to remedy the deficiencies in title, however, at this early stage there are no assurances that these steps will be successful.

In addition to the four properties mentioned above, the Company has also determined that six other properties believed to have been acquired at the time of the Company's formation had previously lapsed and thus are not held by the Company. These properties are not material to the Company's operations.

"The management and board of Sinchao Metals are taking immediate steps to correct the record of ownership of the first four properties mentioned above in the mining registry. In addition, a full assessment of the impact of these discrepancies in property titles on the Sinchao Project is underway and further information will be provided once it is available," said David Rae, President and CEO of Sinchao Metals.
