Update on Sinchao Metals Property Ownership

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 20, 2011) - The Board of Directors of Sinchao Metals Corp. ("Sinchao" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SMZ - News) reports that, further to the announcement made on February 7, 2011, regarding the ownership status of four of the property claims comprising the Sinchao Project, it has determined that title to the claims were not properly transferred to a subsidiary of Andean American Gold Corp. ("Andean"), the party that purported to transfer the claims to Sinchao. As a result neither Andean nor Sinchao holds any proprietary interest in the claims, which claims contain approximately 40% of the inferred resource previously disclosed by the Company. The Company has been striving to reach an agreement with the parties that Andean originally dealt with in order to remedy the deficiencies in title however it has been unable to reach such an agreement. The Company is therefore not optimistic that it will be able to remedy the deficiencies in title, and will make the necessary adjustments to its financial statements to reflect the write down of these four properties.For further information, please visit the Company's website at www.sinchaometals.com.About SinchaoSinchao Metals Corp. is focused on the exploration and development of the Sinchao Gold-Silver-Copper property, located in Cajamarca province in Northern Peru, 30 kilometers from Yanacocha, the largest gold mine in South America.
