New Pacific Enters Into Agreement to Acquire Majority Interest in RZY Silver-Lead-Zinc Project in Qinghai Province, China

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/21/12 -- New Pacific Metals Corp. (TSX:NUX) ("New Pacific" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has signed a binding letter of agreement (the "Agreement") with Silvercorp Metals Inc. ("Silvercorp") to acquire majority interest in its wholly owned subsidiary, Fortress Mining Inc. ("FMI"). Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Company will pay US$3.5 million to acquire an 80% interest of FMI, with an option to acquire the remaining 20% within two years for US$5 million after the Company has spent US$15.9 million on the project. Since the Transaction is a related party transaction it is subject to approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange.

In 2007 FMI and the Qinghai Geological Survey Institute ("QGSI") established a Sino-Foreign Co-Operative Company; Qinghai Found Mining ("QFM"), with a term of 30 years. FMI owns an 82% interest and QGSI owns an 18% carried interest in QFM. Currently, QFM's assets consist of approximately US$2.0 million in net cash and a 67% interest in the RZY exploration project (the "Project").

In April 2011, QFM entered into an exploration agreement with its shareholder, QGSI to jointly explore its RZY project, an early stage exploration project located in Qinghai Province, China (collectively, the "Exploration Agreement"). The major terms of the agreement are:


--  The RZY project exploration permit is held by QGSI. QFM has a 67%
    interest in the RZY project by funding exploration and drilling in 2012.
--  The exploration permit will be transferred to QFM when one of two events
    occur (1) QFM completes funding of RMB30 million (US$4.8 million) on RZY
    project exploration or capital expenditures; or (2) the RZY project
    matures to a development stage project. Once transferred; QFM will have
    a 100% interest in the RZY project, giving FMI an 82% interest in the
    project. 
--  QFM, funded 100% by FMI; is then committed to invest an additional
    RMB170 million (US$27.2 million) on RZY project exploration and capital
    expenditures to have a total investment of RMB200 million (US$32.0
    million) in exploration and capital expenditures on the RZY project. 
--  If QFM does not fund the required exploration and capital expenditures,
    the Exploration Agreement will be terminated while QFM maintains its
    interest in the Project. 

To date, pursuant to the Exploration Agreement, FMI has invested US$3.5 million in QFM and QFM has spent US$1.5 million on exploration and development expenditures in the RZY Project.

RZY Project Location, Background, and Geological Exploration

The RZY Project is an early stage silver-lead-zinc exploration project, situated on a high plateau with an average elevation of 5,000 metres above sea level. The Project is located approximately 237 kilometres via paved and gravel roads from the capital city of Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, or 820 kilometres via paved highway from Qinghai Province's capital city of Xining. Regular commercial flights are available from Xining to Yushu.

Known mineralization is silver-lead-zinc veins controlled by altered structure zones developed in the lower Permian marine clastic sediments. Two silver-lead-zinc mineralized zones, MI-1 and MI-2 with a strike extent of 6.5 kilometres and width of 25 to 100 metres have been identified by historical surface work conducted by QGSI including trenching, pitting, geology mapping and geophysics surveying. The geochemical profile indicated that the silver-lead-zinc mineralization is likely in situ, not floats of dispersion from sources in the surrounding mountainous area. The soil geochemical anomaly also indicated there could be another mineralized zone to the north in a flat area about one kilometre from the mountains.

In 2006, Silvercorp retained Golder Associates Ltd. ("Golder") to complete a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") report on the RZY Project and Golder conducted a site visit between October 15 and 25, 2006. Samples taken by Golder from trenches and shallow pits are listed in Table 1 below. The results indicate that silver-lead-zinc mineralization exists at RZY.

Exploration 2011-2012

In 2011 Silvercorp, through QFM and QGSI, conducted surface geology mapping and an induced polarization ("IP") geophysical survey program. The IP survey commenced along the western portion of the 6.5 kilometre long mineralized zone and was completed in 2012. The survey results indicate the existence of an area of high polarization to the north of the alteration break zone, and a separate minor zone of high polarization to the south. These high polarization areas may be related to mineralized alteration zones at depth.

Trenching

In 2012, seven trenches were completed by QFM. Lead-zinc-silver mineralization was identified in all trenches. The mineralization is characterized by lead-zinc sulphides and pyrite as well as oxides such as litharge and limonite. The galena is blocky or massive and is associated with quartz-carbonate veins. The width of lead-zinc mineralization exposed in trenches ranges from a few metres to more than 10 metres with individual galena-quartz veins of a few centimeters to half a meter wide. Assay results from the trenches completed in 2012 confirmed the presence of high grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization as indicated by historical results (see Table 2 below). The assay results of the new trenches are shown together with the historical results in Table 2. High grade silver is mostly associated with high grade lead and zinc which is the case of blocky or massive lead-zinc sulphides with quartz veins, but some high grade silver intervals contain relatively low values of lead and zinc, which may mean there are multiple distinct variations of mineralization.

Drilling

To test the depth potential of the mineralization exposed by surface workings, over 890 metres in five drill holes were drilled in 2012. Multiple altered structure zones with narrow galena-quartz veins were hit in holes, but no massive or blocky lead-zinc sulphide quartz veins, as observed in the trenches on surface, were intercepted. Although assay results of drill cores indicated the mineralization occurs in the major east-west structural zones in the Permian clastic sediments and is continuing at depth (see Table 3 below), the width and grades of drill intercepts are inferior to the results of the surface trenches and pits. Drill hole ZK2401 did not hit any significant mineralization as exposed by the surface trenches. However, given the strike extent of the mineralization, and the high-grade nature of the silver-lead-zinc mineralization indicated by samples from the trenches and pits, New Pacific believes there is enough evidence to support the transaction and justify continued drilling at the Project in 2013.

All intervals are reported as downhole lengths and are not corrected to true widths for the mineralized intervals as drill holes typically cut mineralization at variable angles and geometries of mineralized zones remain speculative until further drilling is completed.

Alex Zhang, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person on the project as defined under National Instrument 43-101. He has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.

Sample Preparation and Assay Results

QFM employed standard QA/QC procedures to monitor and control assay quality by regular insertion of standard reference materials, blank samples and duplicate samples prior to shipment for preparation and analysis. Drill cores are halved with diamond saw on site. Half core and trench channel samples are shipped from site by security courier to the preparation facilities of SGS, Xi'an, China for preparation. Sample preparation includes the typical process of drying, crushing, splitting and pulverizing. Pulp samples then are delivered by security courier to the analytical laboratory of SGS, Tianjin, China for analysis. Analytical method is 4-acid digestion with ICP-AES finish with the over limits going to AAS finish. Routine QA/QC procedures are also carried out at the lab by itself to monitor the quality of sample preparation and analysis.

The trenching and drilling results set out in this news release, including the assays that were analyzed by SGS labs in 2012, were completed for Silvercorp Metals Inc. and QGSI, and as such, pursuant to NI 43-101 are historical. The Company has not verified the historical assay results and they should not be relied upon. The only NI 43-101 technical report completed to date was the Golder technical report in October 2006. The Company intends to complete updated technical reports as exploration continues.
