Zincore Continues to Intersect Copper Mineralization at Dolores in First Drill Hole of Joint Venture With First Quantum

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/23/12 -- Zincore Metals Inc. (TSX:ZNC)(LMA:ZNC) ("Zincore" or the "Company") is pleased to report assay results from DOL-11, the first hole drilled under a joint-venture with First Quantum Minerals formed to explore the Company's 100%-owned Dolores copper-molybdenum porphyry property located in the prolific Yauri-Andahuaylas copper district in southern Peru. Two additional holes, DOL-12 and DOL-13, have also been completed and the Company expects to have those assay results in the coming weeks.

Zincore President and CEO, Jorge Benavides, commented, "We continue to hit interesting copper and molybdenum mineralization at Dolores as we search for what we believe is the high grade centre of a very large copper-molybdenum system located within a prolific mining area. We are encouraged by the results from DOL-11 as the amount of stockwork veining, and strong alteration associated with mineralization is what one wants to see when seeking to define a large copper porphyry system."

Hole DOL-11 intersected favorable values of copper and molybdenum cutting porphyry diorite with moderate silicification and some zones of hydrothermal breccias.

Mr. Benavides added, "It is important to remember that we are in the very early stages at Dolores. We expect to learn much more about this system in the coming weeks when we receive the assay results for Holes DOL-12, located at the southern extent of drilling to date, and DOL-13, located at the northern extent. Both are long holes, and as determined by a visual inspection of drill core, have intersected mineralization. In particular, it appears DOL-12 has intercepted mineralization to a depth of at least 650 metres. Given that holes DOL-12 and DOL-13 are located 2.5 kilometres apart and mineralization is known to occur over parts of this area for 1.5 kilometres in an east and west direction, we are dealing with a very large area and have much work to do. With this in mind, we are looking forward to receiving in the coming weeks reports on our recently completed geophysical and geochemistry work. By combining all of this information we believe we will be able to hone our next drill targets as we search for the higher grade areas of Dolores."

The Dolores Copper Porphyry Project

Zincore's 100%-owned Dolores Project is located on the Company's Accha Zinc Oxide District in the Yauri-Andahuaylas Copper belt in southern Peru. It is near significant copper mines and developments such as Xstrata's Las Bambas and Tintaya, HudBay's Constancia and First Quantum's Haquira. To date, Zincore has published results from 11 drill holes, two trenches and a number of surface samples at Dolores and is awaiting the assay results from two more drill holes. The Company also expects to receive results in the coming weeks from a ground magnetic and induced polarization survey of the Dolores area as well as the regional aeromagnetic and radiometric study which have just been completed. It is expected that this new data will contribute to a better understanding of the deposit and help focus future exploration work.
