Tungsten Corp. Commences 2013 Field Season at Cherry Creek Property

Teams Are On-Site and Fieldwork Is Underway at Tungsten Prospective Property in Nevada

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - Tungsten Corp. (OTCQB: TUNG) ("Tungsten Corp." or the "Company"), an exploration stage company focused on the evaluation, acquisition and development of domestic tungsten mining opportunities, is pleased to report that the 2013 field season has begun with the arrival of geologists at the Cherry Creek Property on May 11th.

Activities already include the commencement of detailed stream sediment sampling of the claim block utilizing an experienced field crew from Carlin Trend Mining Supply & Services (www.carlintrendminingservices.com/).

Given that the primary mineralization (scheelite) is fluorescent, the field crew is employing a portable high intensity UV light source in order to quickly undertake the job of locating new high probability areas for tungsten mineralization.

The geologists are following up new anomalies by traversing upstream to identify the source(s) of the scheelite in bed rock. The initial data will be flagged for detailed field work organized to follow up the new discoveries in order to fully map, sample and begin the process of development and valuation of the mineral reserves.

The geologists are also tasked with the evaluation of all known historical deposits and old mines on the property in order to categorize and identify the best locations offering potential for significant ore reserves. These target locations will be prioritized for further work and testing later in the field season.

In related news, Tungsten Corp. has already shipped several representative scheelite samples from the property to Leaf and Stone Resources Ltd (www.leafandstone.ca) for assessment utilizing their resonance coupling satellite based data analysis technology. The company will analyze satellite spectral information and identify the areas with the best potential for tungsten mineralization. This new technology has been reported to be highly successful in the identification of mineralization on the surface and at depth.

Company President Guy Martin states, "Now that the snow is off the hills we are moving ahead rapidly with our initial work plan. We have boots on the ground and assets in play. This is shaping up to be a pretty aggressive schedule and one which we anticipate will prove fruitful relatively quickly."

Additional details of the Company's business, finances, appointments and agreements can be found as part of the Company's continuous public disclosure as a reporting issuer under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission's ("SEC") EDGAR database.
