Zinco Do Brasil, Inc. Hires Former Vale-Docegeo Geologist Fernando Crocco

NEW YORK, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zinco do Brasil Inc. (OTCQB: ZNBR) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of geologist Fernando Crocco. Mr. Crocco has more than 20 years of experience as a geologist with a strong focus on Brazilian mineral deposits, and was a member of the Vale-Docegeo team that discovered, explored and evaluated Zinco do Brasil's Salobro deposit for Vale.

Zinco Chairman and CEO Ryan E. Hart commented: "There is no better geologist the Company could have hired than the person who was material in discovering, exploring and evaluating the Salobro project for Vale in the first place." Mr. Hart continued: "Fernando is a very experienced Brazilian geologist, who not only knows Zinco's Salobro project second to none, but who also has vast experience covering the entire spectrum from greenfield to project feasibility stage, including project development, cost control and management, contract and licensing management and field logistics among others."

Mr. Crocco is also the author of twelve scientific papers about Brazilian geology and mineral deposits in Brazil.
