Zinccorp Resources Inc.: Phase Two Drilling Scheduled to Begin

Zinccorp Resources Inc.: Phase Two Drilling Scheduled to Begin on
Recent Silver-Lead-Zinc Discovery Intersecting 40% Pb-Zn & 510.7 g/t
Ag Over 7.94m 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 07/23/08 --  Zinccorp
Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ZN) is pleased to announce a 2500 meter
Phase Two diamond drill program at its wholly owned Michelle property
located 25 km east of the Dempster Highway in central Yukon. Drilling
is scheduled to begin at month end, July 2008. 
Phase One drilling of the Gully Zone returned a drill interval that
averaged more than 40 per cent combined lead-zinc with 510.7 g/t
(14.9 ounces/ton) silver over a 7.94 m (26 ft) true thickness. 
The work crew is presently building drill pads on the Michelle
property in preparation for the Phase Two drilling program. This
phase will continue to delineate the Gully Zone along strike and will
begin to explore the Peak, Dynasty and other zones in the western
part of the property. 
The Company is financing this phase of exploration using funds on
hand and proceeds from the current 6 million unit private placement
offering. The work program is already permitted and pending continued
favourable results, an application will be made this coming winter to
build a road to the property. 
Reconnaissance-scale soil geochemistry and prospecting have
identified three main areas of mineralization, two of which are in
the western part of the property and one of which is in the eastern
part. None of the main targets are fully delineated, but they appear
to have both structural and stratigraphic controls. The mineralized
zones weather recessively, often forming gullies that are mostly
filled with unmineralized talus. The zones are marked by very strong
soil geochemical anomalies (i.e. 1000 ppm to 6.26% lead). These
anomalies range from 500 to 700 m in length and are open to expansion
along strike in both directions. In addition to the main targets,
there are a number of secondary targets with good exploration
potential. 
The discovery was made by diamond drilling in 2007, results of which
were just received. It consists of fracture- and breccia-hosted,
carbonate replacement style mineralization. Zinc, lead and silver are
the main metals of interest. The host stratigraphy consists of
Cambrian to Devonian age limestone and dolomite that are cut by large
faults of uncertain age. 
The 2007 diamond drilling was confined to the main target area in the
eastern part of the property (Gully Showing). The program consisted
of seven holes designed to identify the source of limonitic float
boulders found on a steep talus slope. Outcrop is very rare in the
area. The first three holes (MCH-07-01 to 03) were aligned
subparallel to the dip of the zone and intersected only sparsely
mineralized footwall rocks. The next two holes (MCH-07-04 and 05)
were also drilled subparallel to the zone and mostly cut weakly
fractured and mineralized hanging wall rocks. The last two holes
(MCH-07-06 and 07) were drilled directly across the zone and
encountered heavily fractured and brecciated rocks that are well
mineralized with limonite, smithsonite, cerrusite and galena. The
most significant assay intervals are tabulated below.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The intersected interval in MCH-07-06 is nearly true width. The true
widths for intercepts in the other two holes are about 75% of the
reported interval lengths. Soil geochemical values in the vicinity of
the drill discovery are comparable to, but more localized than, the
values marking the highly prospective targets in the western part of
the property (Peak and Dynasty showings). Neither of these targets
was drilled in 2007 because results were not available until after
the crew and drill had left the property. 
The Michelle property lies in a belt of Proterozoic and Paleozoic
age, platformal carbonate rocks that stretch through northern BC,
western NWT, Yukon and Alaska. Carbonate-hosted mineral deposits
within this belt include Pine Point, Gayna River, Prairie Creek,
Blende and Full Metal Minerals' recently announced discovery at
Fortymile. 
The analytical results reported in this news release were done at ALS
Chemex in North Vancouver, B.C. All soil samples and core samples
were analyzed for 34 elements using aqua regia digestion and
inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy (ME-ICP41).
Samples that exceeded 10,000 ppm lead, 10,000 ppm zinc or 100 g/t
silver were re-analyzed using aqua regia digestion with inductively
coupled plasma and either atomic emission spectroscopy or atomic
absorption spectroscopy (Pb, Zn- or Ag-OG46). Samples that exceeded
30% zinc or 20% lead were determined using wet chemical assay
techniques (Pb-VOL70 and Zn-VOL50). One sample that exceeded 1500 g/t
silver was re-analyzed using fire assay and gravimetric finish
(Ag-GRA21). 
The 2007 exploration was conducted by Archer, Cathro & Associates
(1981) Limited, under the supervision of W. A. Wengzynowski, P.Eng.
