Zincore Promotes Vernon Arseneau to Vice President, Exploration

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - Zincore Metals Inc. (TSX:ZNC) ("Zincore" or the "Company") announces that its Board of Directors recently appointed Mr. Vernon Arseneau as Vice President, Exploration and an officer of the Company. Mr. Arseneau had been Exploration Manager, Peru since Zincore's inception.

Timo Jauristo, Zincore's President and CEO, commented, "Vern's appointment reflects both the professional and very capable job he has done managing Zincore's activities in Peru and the evolving needs of the Company. Under Vernon's leadership, our Peru-based exploration team delivered significant increases in our mineral resource base. The team is now able to execute our aggressive Accha-Yanque belt exploration program with less of Vernon's day-to-day involvement. Vern will remain responsible for exploration on Accha-Yanque, but will now devote an increasing amount of his efforts towards Zincore's growth strategy by developing the Company's other Peruvian properties and identifying new opportunities for Zincore in Peru and elsewhere."

Vernon joined Collasuyo, Zincore's wholly owned Peruvian subsidiary in June 2006. He has 30 years of exploration and project management experience of which the last 10 years have been in South America, principally in Peru, Chile and Argentina. Vern consulted on a number of South American exploration projects for three years and prior to that he was general manager of Noranda Inc.'s country office in Peru and was responsible for the reactivation of the El Pachon project in Argentina. Vern holds a Bachelor of Science in geology and is fluent in Spanish, French and English.
