Zincore to Voluntarily Delist From the TSX and Apply for NEX Listing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - March 20, 2015) - Zincore Metals Inc. (TSX:ZNC)(LMA:ZNC) ("Zincore", the "Company") reports that it has applied for voluntary delisting of its shares on the TSX and concurrently applied for a listing on the NEX, a separate board of the TSX-V.

Zincore CEO and President, Jorge Benavides, commented, "An NEX listing will continue to offer investors an opportunity to buy and sell Zincore shares, while at the same time reducing our expenses. Given that it remains extremely difficult to raise funds in the current markets and we are subject to a TSX listing review as reported March 2nd, we have reviewed the Company's options and believe that delisting our shares from the TSX now and transitioning to the NEX is in the best interests of our shareholders."

Mr. Benavides concluded, "Although the market is not currently recognizing the value of earlier stage projects, it is imperative that investors remember that the Company still owns and participates in the same projects whether listed on the NEX or TSX and that we continue to pursue every avenue to realize value from these assets for our shareholders."

Zincore's flagship project is the Accha Zinc Oxide District project, which was the subject of a positive Pre-Feasibility Study as originally announced August 6, 2013. The Company also holds a 49.1% stake in the Dolores porphyry copper project joint-venture with First Quantum Minerals and controls a 50,000 Ha land package with three identified copper target areas located in the prolific Yauri-Andahuaylas copper belt of southern Peru.

For more information on the Accha Zinc Oxide District Project Pre-Feasibility Study results and report, please see our news releases dated August 6th and 26th, 2013. For more information on the Dolores joint-venture, please see our news releases dated October 29th, March 21st, January 15th and January 8th, 2013 as well as November 23rd, September 6th and July 13th, 2012. For more information on the Zincore, please see our news releases dated February 15, 2015, December 10th, November 27th, July 23rd and January 23rd, 2013.

The Company expects the delisting of its shares from the TSX and transition to the NEX to happen simultaneously and the Company will issue a further press release once the date has been determined. Zincore shares also trade on the Lima Stock Exchange ("BVL") and the Company understands that one of the conditions of this listing is to maintain a TSX or TSX-V listing. Accordingly, it is expected that the Company's shares may cease to trade on the BVL during the NEX listing period.
