Tungsten Corp. to Begin 2013 Field Work With Geochemical Survey at Nevada Property

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 2, 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 advise of the commencement of its 2013 field activities in Nevada.

The Company's project area is located in the Cherry Creek mining district, approximately 90 miles south of the town of Wells, in White Pine County, Nevada. Due to extensive regional mining activities, a number of excellent suppliers and resources are available locally. Upon due consideration, the company has contracted Carlin Trend Mining Supply & Services ( to mobilize two field teams, one to do a detailed stream sediment survey and the other to survey and complete some minor adjustments to the Cherry Creek Claim Block.

The goals of the stream sediment survey are to extract key samples in order to inspect the coarse fraction for scheelite, the main tungsten mineral which is fluorescent. The mineral can be easily detected using a UV light source which will expedite and supplement a preliminary assessment for the presence of tungsten mineralization within the various rock types.

The program is designed to allow Tungsten Corp. to quickly confirm known locations where significant quantities of tungsten were shown to be present as documented during historic mine activities. The work will also, and more importantly, focus on the identification of new areas presenting tungsten mineralization in sufficient densities that will aid the company in developing a program of detailed follow-up evaluation tests. Concurrent with this geochemical survey, a company geologist will work with the sampling crew in order to oversee a program to develop a detailed map of the claims.

Company President Guy Martin states, "Now that the weather in the area has moderated, we are pleased to get moving with our plans for the property. The Cherry Creek project is a high priority for us as we believe we can progress through the exploratory phase of our program relatively quickly. We will be making further announcements regarding the initial results and plans for future fieldwork shortly."

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.
