Toro Resources Corp.: Positive Independent Consultant Report for the Morgan Peak Copper Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2010) - Toro Resources Corp. (CNSX:TRK) (the "Company") is pleased to announce completion of initial mapping and an aerial survey at its Morgan Peak Copper Project. The project is located within the World Class Globe-Miami Mining District in central Arizona, close to major copper mines, such as the recently opened Carlota (Quadra/FNX), and major new discoveries such as Resolution (Rio Tinto/BHP Billiton). 

The Company implemented an evaluation and mapping program by Dr. Warren Pratt. Dr. Pratt examined Morgan Peak over a 10-day period in July. In his executive summary, Dr. Pratt confirms the presence of significant copper mineralization across an area of roughly 3 km x 0.8 km. He also emphasizes potential for other mineralized zones in previously ignored areas and considers many of the targets as "virtually drill ready". Dr. Pratt's discovery of the Birthday Zone, an untested target with great promise, highlights the need for detailed mapping of the entire project. His work provides an excellent starting point for remapping.

"We are excited by the positive report from Dr. Pratt and the new targets he has generated," said Bill Galine, president of Toro Resources. "We are fortunate that Dr. Pratt could assess the property. As well as confirming known copper mineralization, probably leachable, in the West part of the area, he agrees that the Morgan Peak project has significant exploration potential. His new drill targets reinforce our view that additional mineralization will be found elsewhere on the large claim block." 

Geologic mapping, sampling and drilling are scheduled for later in the year, depending on permitting. A recent aerial survey over approximately 1550 hectares at Morgan Peak will produce air photos, a topographic map with 1 m contours, and an orthophoto map of the claim at a scale of 1:1000. All will be used for detailed geologic mapping in the near future. A field survey program will provide detailed surface information including sampling, outcrop and contact locations, as well as accurate historic drill hole locations with elevations.
