Tungsten Corp. Invests in Remote Sensing to Identify New Mineral Targets in Nevada

Spectral Analysis Speeds Development and Aids Rapid Identification of Tungsten Resource

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 28, 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 announce that it has successfully implemented spectral mapping to significantly advance the initial study of mineralization at its flagship Nevada property.

During recent field work, the Company elected to engage Colorado-based Spectral International Inc. (www.spectral-international.com) to undertake a spectral analysis aimed at identifying new tungsten-prospective targets throughout the Cherry Creek mining property, located approximately 90 miles south of the town of Wells, in White Pine County, Nevada.

Reflectance spectroscopy has been successfully used by exploration companies for many years as a remote sensing tool in order to identify alterations related to many kinds of mineralization and as an aid to lithology mapping. Spectroscopy is particularly sensitive to clay and other alteration minerals such as carbonates.

Tungsten Corp. had already ascertained that the tungsten (scheelite) mineralization previously mined at the Cherry Creek location was closely related to carbonate alterations and therefore determined that a spectroscopic study offered a proven method to rapidly identify the most prospective areas, especially in relation to the several historic past-producing mines on the property.

The spectral information quickly confirmed areas of previously known tungsten mineralization as well as identified many new alteration zones that will be mapped and sampled in detail now that the 2013 field season is fully underway. In addition, important information was obtained through the identification of major rock units extending across the property and beyond and which will subsequently aid in the preparation of a detailed geologic area map.

Company President Guy Martin comments, "It was an easy decision to invest in the remote sensing analysis as the cost/benefit value was obvious to us. The spectral study provides a real head start on the exploration of the property, especially in terms of identifying previously unknown mineralized zones. It dramatically speeds up the development of an overall picture of the inherent tungsten mineral resource and that achievement alone helps pave the way towards the development of a proper resource estimate of the property. Asset valuation is a major goal for our team and shareholders alike, and anything that speeds up the process, while maintaining the quality of the resultant data, is being utilized to achieve that goal."
