Coro Provides Update on Its Berta Project, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Coro Mining Corp. (TSX:COP) ("Coro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed preliminary metallurgical column test work at its Berta project, located 19km W of the village of Inca de Oro in the III Region of Chile. In addition, a NI-43-101 compliant independent resource estimate is expected to be completed shortly.

A total of 3 representative samples were collected; a high grade sample from a diamond drill hole; and a medium and a low grade sample from surface trenches. The trench samples had atypically low soluble copper ("CuS") grades due to surface weathering. The samples were sent to Geomet S.A. metallurgical laboratories in Santiago, Chile for compositing and test work, and subsamples taken for mineralogical categorization were sent to Mineralogia Aplicada a Metalurgia (M.A.M. Ltda.), also of Santiago. Four 2m columns were completed for each sample; one at P80 -3/4" and a second at P80 -3/8", with a duplicate for each crush size.

Summary leach results for the 3/8" columns are shown on Table 1, and leach kinetics and net acid consumption ("NAC") on Figures 1 & 2 (to view Figures 1 & 2 click on: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/cop115i.pdf).

This test work demonstrates that Berta oxide material may have rapid heap leach recoveries in excess of theoretical percent solubility due to the presence of significant copper wad which is soluble in the reducing, ferrous sulphate rich conditions of the column, but which did not report to the %CuS head assay.

Alan Stephens, President and CEO of Coro, commented, "We are pleased the test work indicates that 100% recovery of CuS, even of low grade material, may be achievable with approx. 15 kg/t NAC after 15 days. Actual heap leach recoveries and residence times would be partly a function of relative copper and acid prices. We are very encouraged by the results of this test work, and look forward to receiving the resource estimate shortly."

Sergio Rivera, Coro's Vice President of Exploration, a geologist with more than 30 years of experience and a member of the Colegio de Geologos de Chile and of the Instituto de Ingenieros de Minas de Chile, was responsible for the design and execution of the sampling program at Berta and is the Qualified Person for the purposes of NI 43-101. Alan Stephens, FIMMM, Coro's President and CEO, a geologist with more than 36 years of experience, and a Qualified Person for the purposes of NI 43-101, is responsible for the contents of this news release.
