Zincore Appoints New CFO to Add Operational Strength as it Moves Towards Pre-Feasibility

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2011) - Zincore Metals Inc. (TSX:ZNC)(BVLAC:ZNC) ("Zincore" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Paul Smith has been appointed Interim CFO effective today. Paul will replace current CFO, Giovanni Susin, who will continue as Vice President, Finance. It is expected that Mr. Smith will be appointed permanent CFO once his immigration process from South Africa to Canada has been completed.

Zincore President and CEO, Jorge Benavides, commented, "As we near the release of our Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") of the Accha Zinc Oxide District in Peru, we are making the transition from an exploration company to a development stage company and this requires that we add more development and operational mining experience. Paul has already made a significant contribution to the PEA since joining us as a consultant earlier this year. As we move towards Pre-Feasibility, his strong development and line management experience are exactly what the Company needs to realise our aggressive development and expansion plans going forward. He also has a strong background and credentials in metallurgy, critical in developing a zinc oxide project."

Paul has over twenty years in close association with the mining industry as a senior executive, financier, business developer, operations manager and metallurgist. He has degrees from the Camborne School of Mines, U.K. (DMT, Extractive Metallurgy), Rhodes University, South Africa (B.Sc. Chemistry, Geology) and Stellenbosch University, South Africa (MBA & B.Com.).

Mr. Benavides further commented, "At the same time, the Company wishes to express its gratitude to Mr. Susin for his contributions in helping the Company re-invigorate itself from near-dormancy in 2009. Giovanni will continue to be responsible for the Company's internal and external accounting and financial reporting."
