INCA ONE GOLD CORP. (TSX VENTURE: IO) ("Inca One" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has retained Jett Capital Advisors LLC ("Jett") as the Company's exclusive financial advisor and placement agent. Jett will assist in raising, on a best effort basis, up to USD $20 million in debt facilities.

We are also pleased with our work and efforts at our Chala One plant. Our staff in Peru have demonstrated the highest degree of professional capability during the expansion, start up, and since the commencement of commercial production of Chala One. We now have the experience and capability to expand and deploy significant capital in a methodical manner in the mineral processing industry in Peru, and provide growth for our shareholders."
Sam Grauer, a partner at Jett, stated: "We have been looking for an opportunity to be involved in financing for the mineral processing sector in Peru for some time. After becoming familiar with the Inca One team in Vancouver and their experienced technical staff in Peru, we are excited to work with Inca One to fund its expansion and growth." Terms of the engagement include a one-time payment of CAD $75,000, for the services of Jett as the Company's financial advisor, to be settled for 500,000 Inca One shares at a price of $0.15 per share, which is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
About Inca One
Inca One is a Canadian-based mineral processing company with a gold milling facility in Peru, servicing government-permitted, small-scale miners. As part of the terms of the original purchase agreement for the Chala, Peru processing facility, Inca One has an agreement between its wholly owned subsidiary, Chala One SAC, and the seller and initial permit applicant, to operate under the umbrella of formalization until the successful completion of all the environmental and operating permits. Peru, a highly mineral-rich country, is one of the world's top producers of gold, silver, copper and zinc, with substantial production coming from small scale miners who need government permitted milling facilities to process their mineral (such as the Company's Chala Plant).
