Sinchao Metals Intersects 170.3 Metres Grading 0.74% Copper and 1.19 g/t Gold at the Breccia Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 18, 2008) - Sinchao Metals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SMZ) is pleased to announce the results from Drill Holes SDH-48, SDH-46 and SDH-45 drilled on the Breccia Zone at the Sinchao Property in Peru.

Holes SDH-48 and SDH-46 were drilled from the same drill pad on Section 12. Hole SDH-48 was drilled at azimuth 045 with a -80 degrees inclination and Hole SDH-46 was drilled at azimuth 225 with a -70 degrees inclination. Hole SDH-45 was drilled on Section 9, approximately 500 metres to the northwest. Assays have been received for the interval of 0.0m to 306.7m, the bottom of Hole SDH-48, 0.0m to 384.7m, the bottom of Hole SDH-46 and 0.0m to 374.65m, the bottom of Hole SDH-45.

Significant intersections are as follows:

"Broad zones of copper - gold mineralization have now been intersected over a distance of at least 600 metres along southwest - northeast Sections 10 and 11, and over at least 450 metres in a northwest - southeast direction from Sections 13 to 9," said President Andrew Gourlay. "Significant intervals of mineralization have now been encountered in breccia, dacite and skarn, and we have not yet defined the limits of mineralization."

Drill Holes SDH-48 and SDH-46 intersected dacite, dacite porphyry, hydrothermal breccia and skarn from surface to the bottom of both holes, with zones of brecciated dacite and skarn. Drill Hole SDH-46 was collared approximately 175 metres to the west of Hole SDH-44, which intersected 97m grading 1.41% copper, 1.09 g/t gold and 25.9 g/t silver from 0.8m to 98.0m depth (See News Release dated September 8, 2008). Drill Holes SDH-48 and SDH-46 are located in the central part of southwest - northeast Section 12. Hole SDH-45 intersected brecciated dacite cut by numerous faults, and was collared approximately 200 metres north of Hole SDH-37, which intersected 188 grading 2.02% copper, 1.07 g/t gold and 11.3 g/t silver (See News Release dated July 8, 2008). Hole SDH-45 is located in the western portion of Section 9.

Drill Holes SDH-48, SDH-46 and SDH-45 are part of a 9,250 metre drill program, the objective of which is to define the Breccia and Skarn Zone, and to calculate a preliminary resource estimate.
