Initial Drilling Results Further Demonstrate Scale of Berta Copper Anomaly in Turkey

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or "the Company") (TSX:NWI) (www.nuinsco.ca) today announced the initial results received from the diamond drilling program conducted on the Berta Project in Turkey during the autumn of 2012. The work program was operated by the Company's joint venture partner Xstrata Copper ("Xstrata"). The Berta Project is a copper porphyry target which is reputed to be the largest copper anomaly in the Turkish Pontides metals belt - as such it is an attractive and prospective exploration target.

A total of six diamond drill holes were completed in a work program that follows-up on the widespread and very anomalous copper mineralization identified in previous work programs. The drilling targeted areas not previously drilled but which are overlain by very strong copper-in-soil anomalies located at the centre, east and north of the Berta porphyry system. Results from past drill programs conducted between 2005 and 2008 returned very positive results, including DDH SD-07-08, collared at the northeast periphery of the Berta system, which intersected 710.9m grading 0.28% copper and 0.07g/t gold between 3.80m and 714.7m (see press release dated Apr. 25, 2007) and DDH SD-08-10 (collared 500m south of SD-07-08) which returned 164.0m grading 0.20% copper and 0.06g/t gold between 250.5m and 414.5m (see press release dated Oct. 20, 2008).

Drill hole SD-12-12 of the 2012 program was drilled to a depth of 733.2m on the western side of the anomalous copper-in-soil anomaly where it intersected altered and copper-mineralized dacite throughout that included 280.8m (from 312m down-hole) grading 0.09% copper. On the central-eastern margin of the anomalous copper-in-soil anomaly, collared approximately 1.8km east of SD-12-12, DDH SD-12-13 was drilled to a depth of 926m and intersected 354.6m (starting from 571.4m down-hole) which averaged 0.14% copper.

"The most recent drilling continues to demonstrate the enormous scale of the copper anomaly at Berta," said Nuinsco's President Paul Jones. "DDHs SD-12-12 and SD-12-13 were collared approximately 1.8km apart and both obtained long intersections of strongly altered and copper-mineralized rock. Further, the results obtained from SD-12-13 when compared SD-07-08 and SD-08-10 suggest that the eastern part of the Berta system is more strongly copper mineralized than elsewhere."

Results from the other four holes drilled in 2012 are pending and will be reported when available.

The Berta Property is located approximately 50 kilometres south of the Black Sea in northeastern Turkey, within the prolifically mineralized Tethyan-Eurasian Metalogenic Belt which hosts numerous ore deposits in several countries including Iran's Sarcheshmeh Mine, one of the world's largest copper mines at 1.2 billion tonnes grading about 1% copper. Paul Jones, President, acts as Nuinsco's Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.
