Westcore Announces Initial Resource Evaluation at Black Diamond Coal Property

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/26/12 -- WESTCORE ENERGY LTD. (TSX VENTURE:WTR) ("Westcore" or the "Company") is pleased to announce an initial coal resource evaluation from the first four drill programs at the Black Diamond Coal Property ("Black Diamond") located near The Pas, Manitoba. Black Diamond is jointly held by Westcore and Goldsource Mines Inc., 75:25 respectively.

The Black Diamond Coal Property resource evaluation (or the "Evaluation") was completed by Heartstone Consulting Ltd. and was prepared in accordance with Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101"). The lead author of the Evaluation is Peter Graham, P.Geo., who is a "qualified person" within the meaning of NI 43-101 and is independent of the Company. Mrs. Ellen MacNeill, P. Geo., is a co-author of the Evaluation. The Evaluation has been filed on SEDAR and is also available for download on the Company's website.

The Evaluation contemplates coal resources at the Discovery, Cyclops, Ambit, Athena and Calypso deposits. These resources have been classified according to the "CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves: Definitions and Guidelines" (November 2010). Accordingly, the resources have been classified as "Measured", "Indicated" and "Inferred".

Highlights:


--  Measured Tonnes: 40,616,000 
--  Indicated Tonnes: 9,428,000 
--  Total Waste Quantities vs. Measured and Indicated Tonnes of Coal Strip
    Ratio of 1.2:1 
--  Inferred Tonnes: 10,607,000 
--  Total Waste Quantities vs. Inferred Strip Ratio of 1.6:1 
--  Coal is ranked as subbituminous C

The foregoing resources are further additions to resources recently reported on the Company's Panther Property (60% owned by Westcore), where the following resources were recently announced in respect of the Company's Quasar Deposit (for further details, please refer to the Company's news release dated October 29, 2012 and the corresponding filing of the NI 43-101 report on the Panther property, which is available under the Company's corporate profile on SEDAR):


--  Measured Tonnes: 14,239,000 
--  Indicated Tonnes: 4,255,000 
--  Total Waste Quantities vs. Measured and Indicated Tonnes of Coal Strip
    Ratio of 1.5:1 
--  Inferred Tonnes: 9,130,000 
--  Total Waste Quantities vs. Inferred Strip Ratio of 1.6:1 
--  Coal is ranked as subbituminous C

Paul Conroy, President and CEO of Westcore, states "We are very pleased with the initial evaluation of coal resources from Black Diamond. Estimates of approximately two thirds of the overall tonnage in the Measured category and strip ratios of these proportions provide further positive encouragement for the potential mining of Black Diamond. These resource calculations, together with the initial resources recently declared on our Panther Property, further firm up the prospects of development of our area play. We are encouraged by these results and excited at the prospect of further expanding on the coal resources at Black Diamond and Panther with drilling on Luna and other untested targets in future drilling programs."

The database used to generate the resources from Black Diamond consisted of 44 exploration holes, of which 32 were diamond drill holes and 12 were rotary drill holes. Exploration holes were supplemented by airborne geophysical survey data. Seam and overburden thickness isopach and seam structure contour maps were manually generated from drill hole data on each deposit. Generated coal and overburden contours were digitized and entered into a computer based polygonal modelling program for volume determinations Coal seam volumes were computer generated separately for Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories. Coal tonnages were calculated by multiplying the coal volumes by 1.4 g/cc. Overburden volumes were also computer generated separately for Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories. Measured resources correspond to coal within 150 m of a drill hole where the adjacent drill hole also intersected the same seam. The fringe area outside the ring of drill holes and to the implied subcrop has been assigned to the Measured, Indicated and Inferred categories on the following basis: coal is assigned to the Measured category for the area 50 m outside the ring of drill holes, Indicated Category for the ring from 50 to 100 m beyond the ring of drill holes, and Inferred category for the area outside the 100 m ring and the estimated subcrop line. Minimum coal thickness is 1.5 metres, coal subcrop delineations were determined through geological interpretation of airborne geophysical survey data supplemented by seam thickness and structure contour mapping.

Peter Graham, Professional Geologist, is the independent Qualified Person pursuant to NI 43-101 who was responsible for the Evaluation and review of the technical contents of this news release.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
