Cuervo Reports Additional Holes at Cerro Ccopane Iron Project in Peru 
HIGHLIGHTS 
* Hole 16, drilled as a southerly step out at Bob 1 zone, showed near surface
magnetite intersection of 65 meters grading 41% Fe. 
* Holes 14 and 15, also drilled as southerly step outs, showed magnetite
intersections of 23 meters grading 30% Fe and 47 meters grading 20% Fe,
respectively. 
* Final two holes of current drill program completed, results of these northerly
step outs expected in four to five weeks. 
* Preparation of a NI 43-101 Resource Estimate on "Bob 1" Zone commenced, with
release targeted for February 2013. 
December 5, 2012 - Toronto, Ont. 
Cuervo Resources Inc. (CNSX-FE; FWB-CRR; "Cuervo" or the "Company") reports
results from the latest three holes drilled on the Bob 1 zone of its Cerro
Ccopane Iron Project in south central Peru. Laboratory results of Hole 16,
designated BDH12-16, intersected 65.1 meters grading 40.9% Fe. Holes BDH12-14
and BDH12-15, which were also drilled as southerly step outs from the central
area of the zone, showed Fe grades of 29.6% and 19.9%, respectively, in
relatively narrow magnetite intersections. As a consequence of the southerly
step out drilling, the indicated strike length of the Bob 1 magnetite
mineralization has been extended to approximately 1,400 meters. 
The results from Hole 16 are similar to those of 13 previously reported holes
from the central area the Bob 1 zone, each evidencing a large intersection of
high grade magnetite mineralization over a strike length exceeding 1,000 meters.
The narrower magnetite mineralized intersections encountered in Holes 14 and 15
are viewed as being customary in skarn type deposits such as is evident at the
Bob 1 zone. 
The final two holes of the current drill program have recently been completed as
northerly step outs from the central area of the Bob 1 zone. Laboratory results
of these holes are expected in the next four to five weeks. Overall, the aim of
the 18 hole, 4,500 meter drill program has been to test the billion tonne
potential of the Bob 1 zone indicated by a 3 kilometers belt of  magnetite
outcropping and strong geophysical signatures. 
Preparation of a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the Bob 1 zone has now
commenced with release targeted for February 2013. 
Tables 1 through 3 present the analytical summaries of results from holes
BDH12-14, BDH12-15 and BDH12-16. 
TECHNICAL RESULTS 
Drill holes 14, 15 and 16 intersected intervals of magnetite with intervals of
an intermediate intrusive. Sulphide mineralization (predominantly pyrite) is
also locally present in all drill holes reported on the Bob 1 zone.

Magnetic mineralization has been mapped on surface along more than 3 kilometers
at Bob 1 providing the explanation of the geophysical anomaly. The sulphides
when present in the Bob 1 drill cores exhibit similar grain sizes within the
magnetite mineralization that were  previously outlined at the Orcopura,
Huillque and Aurora zones some 10 kilometers SSE. Additional information showing
the map location of the current Bob 1 drill holes and the laboratory results can
be found at the Company's website at:

A nominal sampling interval of 2.0m is currently being carried out within the
sections of typical iron mineralization. Analyses were performed by the SGS DEL
PERU S.A.C. Laboratory in Lima Peru which is a member of the S.G.S.
International Group of Laboratories and is ISO 9001 certified. Laboratory check
analyses were performed on approximately 10% of the samples submitted while
field duplicate samples were performed on average of 1 in 15 samples submitted
and field standard samples were performed on an average of 1 in 40 samples sent
to the laboratory. The Company is satisfied with the reproducibility of the
analyses for the elements
reported. All drill cores were logged and sampled at Cuervo's logging/cutting
facility in Cusco. 
The current exploration work and content of this release has been carried out
under the supervision of Mr. Velasquez Spring, P.Eng., a qualified person for
Cuervo under the definition of NI43-101.

as applicable. Forward-looking statements relate to future events or future
performance and reflect current estimates, predictions, expectations or beliefs
regarding future events and include, without limitation, statements with respect
to: (i) the amount of mineral reserves and mineral resources; (ii) expected
grades of iron mineralization; (iii) the timing of the Company's exploration
programs and results therefrom; and (iv) the status of negotiations. Any
statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions,
expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future
events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as
"expects", "anticipates", "plans", "projects", "estimates", "envisages",
"assumes", "intends", "strategy", "goals", "objectives" or variations thereof or
stating that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might"
or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved, or the negative of any of these terms
and similar expressions) are not statements of historical fact and may be
forward-looking statements. 
All forward-looking statements are based on the Company's current beliefs as
well as various assumptions made by and information currently available to them.
These assumptions include, without limitation: (i) the presence of and
continuity of iron mineralization at modeled grades; (ii) the capacities of
various machinery and equipment; (iii) the availability of personnel, machinery
and equipment; (iv) the availability and timing of laboratory analysis and
reporting on drill core samples; (v) weather conditions; (vi) reasonable
contingency requirements; and (vii) receipt of community and regulatory
approvals on acceptable terms. 
By their very nature, forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and
uncertainties, both general and specific, and risks exist that estimates,
forecasts, projections and other forward-looking statements will not be achieved
or that assumptions do not reflect future experience. We caution readers not to
place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements as a number of
important factors could cause the actual outcomes to differ materially from the
beliefs, plans, objectives, expectations, anticipations, estimates assumptions
and intentions expressed in such forward-looking statements. These risk factors
may be generally stated as the risk that the assumptions and estimates expressed
above do not occur, but specifically include, without limitation, risks relating
to variations in the mineral content within the material identified as mineral
reserves and mineral resources from that predicted; variations in rates of
recovery and extraction; developments in world metals and minerals markets;
risks relating to fluctuations in the Canadian dollar relative to other
currencies; increases in the estimated capital and operating costs or
unanticipated costs; difficulties attracting the necessary work force; increases
in financing costs or adverse changes to the terms of available financing, if
any; tax rates or royalties being greater than assumed; changes in mineral
exploration plans due to changes in logistical, technical or other factors,
changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; risks relating to
receipt of regulatory and community approvals; political risks, adverse weather
conditions; risks associated with the extreme topography of the areas in which
mineral exploration is conducted; operational and infrastructure risks; and the
additional risks described in the Company's annual financial statements and
management's discussion and analysis for the year ended March 31, 2011. The
foregoing list of factors that may affect future results is not exhaustive. 
When relying on our forward-looking statements, investors and others should
carefully consider the foregoing factors and other uncertainties and potential
events. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking statement,
whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time by the Company or on
