Court Holds “constitutional Hearing” In Amparo Proceeding

February 22, 2013

Vancouver, British Columbia (February 22, 2013) – Oroco Resource Corp (“Oroco” or “the Company”) (TSXV:OCO; Frankfurt: OR6) is pleased to announce that the Seventh District Judge (Federal) of the State of Guerrero has held the constitutional hearing in the two amparo petitions related to the registration of the Celia Gene and Celia Generosa concessions (the “Xochipala Concessions”) (see the Company’s news release dated October 22, 2012 and its most recent MD&A).  With this phase of the proceedings completed, the court is now in a position to make its decision on the amparos.

One of the amparo petitions was filed by the Company’s subsidiary, Minera Xochipala, S.A. de C.V. (“Minera Xochipala”), seeking to set aside a conflicting court order from a state civil court (the “State Court Order”) with regard to that part of the Company’s interest in the Xochipala Concessions acquired from one of the two vendors (the “Camacho Interest”), and all that flowed from it.  The other amparo was filed by the beneficiary of the State Court Order, seeking to have the registration by the Public Mining Registry (the “PRM”) of the Camacho Interest to Minera Xochipala struck and to have it registered in his name.  The PRM was in possession of the State Court Order at the time it resolved that Minera Xochipala was the proper registered owner of a 100% interest in the Xochipala Concessions.

The company’s legal counsel and management are confident that the decision of the PRM was correct and that the court will uphold Minera Xochipala’s ownership of the Xochipala Concessions, leaving it as the sole, legitimate and registered owner of the Xochipala concessions.

The Company is also pleased to report that, pursuant to the terms of its recently announced agreement to sell a 100-per-cent interest in Minas de Oroco Resources S.A. de C.V. to Goldgroup Mining Inc. (see the Company’s news release dated January 28, 2013), it has obtained binding lock-up agreements in support of the sale from shareholders representing not less than 22% of the outstanding shares of the Company.

These historical resource estimate models are based upon historical resource estimates prepared by John Thornton in 2011. While, in the opinion of Dane A. Bridge, author of the revised NI 43-101 standard technical report, Geology, Mineralization and Exploration of the Santo Tomas Cu-(Mo-Au-Ag) Porphyry Deposit, Sinaloa, Mexico dated April 21, 2020 (the “Report”), reliable estimation practices were used, in order to upgrade or verify the historical estimations, resampling and assay of historical drill samples, twinning of historical drill holes, and a new program of regularly spaced drilling is required. No qualified person has undertaken sufficient work to classify the current mineral resources or mineral reserves upon which these models are based and the Company is not treating the estimates as current estimates of the mineral resources. The Company gives no assurance that either these models or the historical resource estimates upon which they are based are accurate, and does not undertake any obligation to update the models or to release publicly any update or revisions of the resource estimates except as required by applicable securities law. The reader is cautioned not to rely upon these models or the historical resource estimates upon which they are based.
