Vistech Capital Corp. Announces Option Agreement for Qualifying Transaction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) - Vistech Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:VTK.P) ("Vistech" or the "Company") announces that it has entered into an option agreement dated July 5, 2010 (the "Option Agreement") with HRS Resources Corp. ("HRS") to acquire an undivided 100% interest (the "Option") in the Wildcat property located in British Columbia (the "Proposed Transaction").

Vistech is a "capital pool company" under the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and the Proposed Transaction with HRS will constitute the Company's "Qualifying Transaction" in accordance with Exchange Policy 2.4. Upon completion of the Proposed Transaction, Vistech expects to be listed as a Tier 2 Mining Issuer pursuant to the minimum listing requirements of the Exchange.

The Qualifying Transaction is not considered to be a Non-Arms Length Transaction under the policies of the Exchange; accordingly, approval of the Proposed Transaction by Vistech's shareholders will not be required.

The Property

The Wildcat property consists of five mineral claims totaling 3,227 hectares located approximately 65 kilometers north of Fort St. James, 75 kilometers west of Mackenzie and 150 kilometers northwest of Prince George in the Omineca Mining Division of north-central British Columbia (the "Wildcat Property").

During the 1980's and 1990's a significant amount of exploration for alkalic porphyry hosted copper-gold mineralization took place in this part of the province following the discovery of the Mt. Milligan deposits, 12 kilometers to the northeast. A 1989 airborne geophysical survey followed up by ground geophysics identified a large, magnetic (high) anomaly (Grunenberg, 1989; Haslinger, 2004). Further exploration in the area has indicated north trending copper in soil/till anomalies (Day, 1996; Wells, 2005) and anomalous copper, gold, silver and palladium values in altered monzonite porphyry and magnetite bearing gabbro and pyroxenite (Wells, 2005). In 2006 Terrane Metals Corp. conducted 83.5 meter geotechnical drilling program to investigate the possibility of using part of the property as tailings storage for the proposed Mt. Milligan mine (O'Brien, 2007). In the following year, Terrane Metals Corp. completed four exploration diamond drill holes totaling 1039.95 meter on the Wildcat 1 (Duba and Lustig, 2008).

The Wildcat Property is in the Quesnel Terrane of Canadian Cordillera, a Late Triassic to Early Jurassic volcanic arc complex that formed along the western margins of North American craton. On the Wildcat Property, Quesnellia rocks consist of Takla Group volcaniclastic and coherent volcanic rocks, augite porphyritic and andesite in composition, and coeval small stocks and dykes of megacrystic plagioclase monzonite and hornblende±plagioclase monzonite/diorite porphyry. Mineralization occurs as isolated disseminations and blebs of chalcopyrite, secondary malachite, pyrite and magnetite in variably altered mafic volcanic and intrusive rocks.

Drill testing induced polarization chargeability highs and coincident copper in soil/till and rock anomalies encountered anomalously high copper and, in part, gold, silver and molybdenum associated with altered monzonite to diorite porphyries. The previous work on the Wildcat Property was largely concentrated in a small area (Wildcat 1), leaving the rest largely unexplored. The Wildcat Property represents an excellent early stage copper and gold prospect that warrants significantly more exploration. The potential exists for expanding already known areas of copper-gold porphyry style mineralization similar to the nearby Mt. Milligan deposit and finding new mineralized systems. A three stage exploration program costing $992,000 is recommended. Phase 1 and Phase 2 are designed to develop copper and gold targets using airborne high sensitivity Magnetic-Electromagnetic survey (170 kilometers), three dimensional induced polarization (60 kilometers) and geological mapping, prospecting and trenching. Phase 3 exploration involves more detailed target definition and 2200 meter NQ diamond drilling.

Terms of the Proposed Transaction

Pursuant to the Option Agreement, HRS will grant the Option to Vistech subject to a 2% net smelter returns royalty. Vistech can exercise the Option by meeting the following obligations:

Due Dates Cash Payments Shares Exploration Expenditures
First anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement     CDN $200,000 on professionally documented geophysical surveying or diamond drilling
Second anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement     CDN $400,000 on professionally documented geophysical surveying or diamond drilling
Third anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement CDN $500,000 50,000  
Fourth anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement CDN $75,000 75,000  
Fifth anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement CDN $100,000 75,000  
Sixth anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement CDN $150,000 75,000  
Seventh anniversary of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement CDN $200,000 150,000  
Each additional anniversary date of Exchange approval of the Option Agreement. (To be treated as advance payments against 2%NSR.) CDN $50,000    

Vistech has obtained a National Instrument 43-101 technical report on the Wildcat Property. Vistech will file the report with the Exchange as soon as it is available.

In connection with the Qualifying Transaction and to reflect the industry in which the Company will then be involved, the Company expects to change its name to "Cayden Resources Inc." or such other name as may be acceptable to applicable regulatory authorities.

The Financing

Vistech intends to complete an equity financing to raise up to CDN$3,600,000 (the "Private Placement") concurrent with the closing of the Proposed Transaction by way of a non-brokered private placement at an intended price of CDN $1.20 per share. Vistech may pay finder's fees on the Private Placement in accordance with the policies of the Exchange, and applicable securities laws.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to fund the acquisition of the Option and other costs associated with the Qualifying Transaction, the work program recommended on the Wildcat Property, maintenance of the Wildcat Property and to provide general working capital.
