Sinchao Metals Confirms Southwest Extension of Mineralization in Breccia Zone at the Sinchao Property, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - Sinchao Metals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SMZ) is pleased to announce the results from Drill Hole SDH-31, drilled on the Breccia Zone at the Sinchao Property. Assays have been received for the interval 0.0m to 381.5m, the bottom of the hole. Drill Hole SDH-31 intersected dacite porphyry and breccia with clasts of limestone, quartzite and volcanics.

Significant intersections are as follows:



From To Interval Copper Gold Silver
m m m % g/t g/t

2.00 145.8 143.8 0.28 0.25 2.9

347.6 375.0 27.4 0.47 0.43 6.5


These are drill intersections and true widths have yet to be determined.

Drill Hole SDH-31 was drilled approximately 450 metres southwest of holes SDH-07, drilled in 1998, and SDH-12A which returned mineralized intervals of 154 metres grading 0.68% copper and 0.80 g/t gold, and 161 metres grading 0.81% copper and 0.71 g/t gold respectively. Drill Hole SDH-31 is located approximately 140 metres southwest of Hole SDH-32, which was terminated at 45.6 metres due to ground conditions. Drill Hole SDH-32 did not return any significant results, and is currently being re-drilled to the target depth of 400m.

Drill Hole SDH-31 has confirmed the southwest extension of mineralization at the Breccia Zone. Step out drilling 150m to both the north and south of this section is underway. The Breccia Zone remains open in all directions and additional drilling will be required to define the mineralization.

"We are pleased that this drilling continues to identify extensions of the known mineralization," said President Andrew Gourlay, "and we are confident that the current drilling will expand the mineralized area significantly."
