Swingplane Ventures, Inc. High Grade Copper Analyses

SANTIAGO, CHILE -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Swingplane Ventures, Inc. (OTCBB: SWVI) (the "Company") is pleased to update information on the History of the Algarrobo property.

Swingplane Venture Inc.'s (the "Company") Algarrobo Property (the "Property") is an Iron Oxide -Copper-Gold (IOCG) property located approximately 850 km north of Santiago, in the III Region, Province of Chanaral, Chile. The city of Copiapo is located approximately 43 km to the southeast of the Property, with the small port city of Caldera 25 km to the east. The Property consists of 32 tenures, comprising a total of 6,161 ha (15,224 acres).

Between December 6 and 9th, 2012, a second property evaluation was undertaken on the Property, during which 6 additional representative grab samples were recovered, primarily to evaluate high grade mineralized material recovered from the recently exposed Descubridora Drift. Grab samples were recovered from high grade mineralized material visually sorted into four piles, grading approximately 10% (ALGARW12-011 - mix of high grade mineralized material from Descubridora and False Estaca workings), 20% (ALGARW12-010), 30% (ALGARW12-009) and 40% (ALGARW12-012) Cu. These samples have a high proportion of Brochantite (Cu4SO4(OH)6 which, as a mineral, contains approximately 70% copper content. The fifth sample, ALGARW12-008, was of high grade mineralized material recovered from recent development from the Veta Gruesa Centre Drift having visible gold developed along fracture surfaces.

Note: Grab samples are selective by nature and are unlikely to represent
average grades of the deposit.
Initial analysis by Group 1E 4 acid digestion followed by multi-element,
Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) with ICP-ES finish. Over-limit analysis for
copper by Group 8TD.OL 4 acid digestion with AAS finish. Finally High Grade
copper analysis by Classical Titration. Gold by Fire Assay with AAS finish.


The suite of samples recovered document very high grade copper grades. Samples were recovered from stockpiles of visually sorted, high grade mineralized material for shipment and sale to ENAMI. In addition to high grade copper, the samples all returned very anomalous levels of gold, ranging between 0.657 and 3.269 ppm. Molybdenum values are all moderately to highly anomalous, ranging between 154 and 662 ppm. Similarly, silver grades are strongly elevated in all samples, with four returning silver between 20.0 and 112.9 g/t Ag. Cobalt values are moderately to strongly elevated, consistent with sample results from the previous property visit, ranging between 15 and 1611, with an average of 824 ppm.

Iron values from ALGARW12-007 are surprisingly low, however, an analysis of 24.92% Cu is interpreted to suggest the sample represents copper oxides rather than "almagrado" (an intimate mix of high grade copper minerals and hematite).

Samples were sent to Acme Analytical Laboratories S.A. in Copiapo. High grade copper samples were sent, internally, from the Acme lab in Copiapo to their lab in Vancouver, BC for quantitative volumetric analysis of high grade copper content (classical titration).

The ENAMI facility at Copiapo (45 km south of the Property) is a government owned smelter and processing facility, primarily for copper ore. The minimum grade accepted, without penalty, is 9% copper. Sale of high grade mineralized material to ENAMI requires a license from ENAMI after a thorough review of the application for license and a review of the property and workings for which the license is being sought. The Company expects to receive the necessary license required for sale of high grade mineralized material on behalf of the Company within the month.
