Zincore Reports Latest Dolores Porphyry Drill Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - Zincore Metals Inc. (NEX:ZNC.H)(LMA:ZNC) ("Zincore", the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from the latest holes drilled at the Dolores copper-molybdenum porphyry project. Dolores is located in the prolific Yauri-Andahuaylas copper district of southern Peru and is being explored under a joint-venture with First Quantum Minerals. ("First Quantum")

Zincore CEO and President, Jorge Benavides commented, "Dolores continues to be an interesting exploration target. The large area, which has been sparsely drill tested to date, has been shown to contain anomalous to significant grades of copper and molybdenum. This attests to the large metal endowment of the system and further exploration is justified to test for a potential higher grade economic core to the system."

First Quantum has concluded the second of five earn-in stages for the Dolores joint-venture and currently owns 50.1% of the project, with Zincore owning the other 49.9%.

The recent drilling program comprised 1599.8m in 4 diamond drill holes. Highlight assay results are provided in Table 1 below; hole location and orientation data are in Table 2. For a map of all holes drilled at the Dolores project, please click here.

The recent drilling targeted the southeastern flank of the previously-drilled porphyry copper-molybdenum system over a north-south distance of approximately 550m. DOL-18, the most northerly hole, cut quartzite through its entire length and intersected anomalous copper and molybdenum associated with sulphide veinlets between 342.15m and 362.70m depth. DOL-19, drilled entirely in diorite at 100° azimuth, was collared at the same location as DOL-02 and DOL-09 from previous drilling campaigns. It intersected intermittent zones of anomalous copper and molybdenum associated with concentrations of sulphide veinlets between 70.70m and 246.85m depth. DOL-20 and DOL-21 were drilled from the same location at 50° and 110° azimuth, respectively, between DOL-18 and DOL-19. DOL-20 intersected feldspar porphyry, diorite porphyry and breccia in the upper portion of the hole and quartzite with thin andesite units below 203.5m. Two intervals of weak copper-molybdenum mineralization were intersected, one in each lithology type. DOL-21 cut feldspar porphyry and intrusive breccia over its entire length and intersected no significant mineralization.

Quality Assurance and Control

All drill core samples were delivered in sealed security bags to ALS Global in Arequipa. Laboratory All samples were analyzed by ME-MS61 (48 elements) using four acid digestion. Copper values were also determined by four acid digestion at ore grade level and gold was assayed by fire assay and Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy. Industry standard procedures were followed for the work reported on herein, which included a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) program. Blank, duplicate and standard samples were inserted into the drill core sample sequence sent to the laboratory for analysis. No significant QA/QC issues during review of the data.
