Toro Ventures Inc. Announces That the Crown Lease Has Begun to Produce Natural Gas in Pay Quantities

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Toro Ventures Inc. (OTCBB: TORO) is proud to announce that the Crown Lease has begun to produce natural gas in pay quantities. Toro has engaged Scissortail and Erifin Gas Companies to test the well on Monday June 30, 2008. Toro will keep shareholders updated on the results of the test.

Meanwhile, the Quinlan #3 well has been pumping at a rate of 300 bls of salt water a day for the past week. The fracture water has almost all been pumped out of the well and the well has begun to color up with oil and gas. The Quinlan #3 Lease is located in the Hunton Limestone formation and this is considered to be one of the best producing formations in Oklahoma. The region has produced in excess of 5.8 million barrels of oil to date, with value of over $626 Million USD.

Frederick Graham, President & CEO of Toro Ventures, Inc., comments, "We are very pleased with the results on both the Crown and Quinlan well. We expect to be announcing our first production numbers within the next 20 days. The Company will be keeping shareholders advised of all production results from both the Crown and Quinlan well."

Toro Ventures, Inc. has moved aggressively into the oil and natural gas exploration business. Oil and gas prices are at high levels due to increased world energy demands and supply shortfalls. These higher prices should enable smaller and faster moving companies like Toro Ventures to be aggressive in acquiring further opportunities within the sector.
