The Morgan Peak Copper Project

Located in Arizona's highly productive Globe-Miami mining district, Morgan Peak Copper project is located within close proximity of BHP's Pinto Valley mine (US$650m sale pending to Capstone Mining Corp), KGHM International's Carlota Mine, Freeport-McMoRan Copper and Gold's Miami mine and Resolution Copper's world-class copper deposit. The Morgan Peak property has been explored since the 1940's by numerous groups including Consolidated Copper, Kerr-McGee, Exxon (Humble Minerals) Phelps Dodge and more recently American Copper Corp.

Historic drilling has identified copper as copper oxide and chalcocite occurring as a shallow "blanket" of mineralization within the project boundaries. The zone of mineralization is an area of roughly 1,500 meters wide by 3,600 meters long extending in an easterly direction through throughout the property. Evidence from past drilling, geological mapping and geophysical surveys point to the potential for a significant heap leachable chalcocite ore deposit to exist within the combined West Lobe, Link Zone and East Lobe.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF TORO RESOUCES CORP.
