Toro Resources Amends Morgan Peak Option Agreement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 7, 2012) - Toro Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TRK) ("Toro" or the "Company") today announced that it has amended the option agreement (the "Option Agreement") relating to the Morgan Peak property (the "Property") pursuant to an amending agreement dated June 6, 2012 (the "Amending Agreement") among the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary and the optionor of the Property (the "Optionor").

The terms of the Amending Agreement extend the deadline for completion of US$450,000 of exploration expenditures on the Property on or before the third anniversary of the Option Agreement by one year to February 1, 2014. Such extension is subject to the requirement that if, during the period between the third anniversary and the fourth anniversary of the Option Agreement, the price of copper exceeds US$3.90/lb for a period of 20 consecutive business days (the "Pricing Period"), Toro must within 60 days of the first business day following the end of the Pricing Period, provide funds in the amount of US$150,000 to the Optionor for a US$150,000 drilling program to be carried out on the Property. If such a drill program is carried out, Toro will be entitled to deduct the amount of US$150,000 from any future exploration expenditures required under the Option Agreement. The Amending Agreement remains subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.

Toro, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, has an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Property.
