Pershimco Confirms and Extends Quema/Quemita Copper Structure

Pershimco Confirms and Extends Quema/Quemita Copper Structure and
Commences IP Geophysics Program 
ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- November 15,
2012 - Pershimco Resources Inc. (the "Corporation" or "Pershimco")
(TSX VENTURE:PRO) (FRANKFURT:BIZ) is pleased to provide an update on
its ongoing exploration program over its 15,000 Ha 100% owned Cerro
Quema property. 
Highlights from recent work at the Quema/Quemita deposit area
include:  


 
--  Identified a 750 meter structure with significant copper intercepts
    along the northern flank of the Quema/Quemita deposit; 
--  Commencement of a 82 line kilometer IP geophysics program; and 
--  Additional gold results contained in oxide at Quema/Quemita, including
    27m @ 1.38g/t Au and 14m @ 1.61 g/t Au.

 
750 Meter Structure Containing Significant Copper Mineralization in
the Quema/Quemita Area 
The compilation and interpretation of recent drilling results have
confirmed the Corporation's geological and mineralization models for
the gold and copper mineralization at Quema/Quemita. These new
drilling results have demonstrated the presence of significant copper
intercepts which are coincident with an important mineralized
structure previously intercepted at depth by a historical drill hole
(PDH-93015) which returned 29 m at 0.43 % Cu. 
Most significant copper results from recent drilling include: 


 
--  PRH-12050 returning 14 m @ 0.63 % Cu; 
--  PRH-12121 returning 123 m @ 0.13 % Cu; 
--  PRH-12123 returning 30 m @ 0.13 % Cu.

 
Drill hole results listed in Table 1 show copper mineralization which
now identifies a contiguous structure 750 m in length trending SW-NE.
This structure is located 100-200 m North-North-East of the
Quema/Quemita open pit perimeter and South-East of both the La Mesita
deposit and the El Domo zone. Refer to Figure 1 for drill hole and
structure location.

Commencement of a 82 Line Kilometer IP Geophysics Program 
The Corporation is also pleased to announce the commencement of the
Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical program scheduled to begin this
coming week on the Quema/Quemita, La Mesita and El Domo project
areas. IP geophysics has proven to be a useful exploration and
targeting method on the Cerro Quema project. Based on the successful
results achieved from the previous survey completed on the La Pava
deposit, the IP program will now be extended toward the east to cover
the entire Quema/Quemita system. 
Additional Gold Results Contained in the Oxide Zone of Quema/Quemita 
Additional new drill results of the gold oxide drilling program at
Quema/Quemita returned significant intercepts including PRH-12178
which returned 14 m @ 1.61 g/t Au within a larger intercept of 71 m @
0.49 g/t, and PRH-12147 which intercepted 27 m @ 1.38 g/t Au. Refer
to Table 2 for additional results.

The Corporation has also continued to progressively increase its
drilling rate at the project and exceeded its drilling meterage
targets for the previous 3 consecutive months. An additional 16,000
meters of drilling have now been completed subsequent to the drill
data included in the recently published National Instrument 43-101
compliant resource estimate. 
Alain Bureau, P. Eng, Pershimco's President and CEO commented: "Our
exploration team continues to expand our understanding of the
mineralization controls at the Quema/Quemita, La Mesita and El Domo
sectors. This newly identified structure shows similarities to the
deep Copper-Gold structure already identified by drilling at the La
Pava deposit. Our team is currently planning the 2013 drilling
program which will see us expand our drilling efforts to
Quema/Quemita deposit areas where there are significant meters yet to
be drilled to increase our resources." 
Quality Assurance / Quality Control ("QA/QC") 
Pershimco follows strict QA-QC protocol measures in keeping with
industry standards and regulatory reporting requirements. All assays
reported above were obtained by using a multi-element ICP method and
fire assay method with atomic absorption finish for Gold, Silver and
Copper. Over limit assays are done on samples with results greater
than 2.5 g/t. The sample preparation protocol also requires that
samples be dried at 125 degrees Celsius just prior to crushing and
also immediately before pulverizing.
