TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2012) - Castle Resources Inc. (News - Market indicators) ("Castle" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its 2nd positive set of drill core assay results from the recently completed surface exploration program at the Granduc Copper Project located near Stewart, B.C.

"As part of our overall objective of growing the inferred copper resource at the Granduc, our 2012 strategy on the South Zone was designed to identify near surface mineralization and target higher grade zones at depth," stated Mr. Mike Sylvestre, President & CEO of Castle Resources. "I am pleased to report drilling was very successful; first, we further delineated the up-dip extent of copper mineralization in the foot wall zone thorough a series of shallow holes, and second, we encountered deeper copper intersections immediately adjacent to our current NI 43-101 resource estimate."

Mr. Sylvestre continued, "At this juncture we can clearly state that these new exploration results confirm that the South Zone is in fact an extension of Main Zone mineralization. In other words, it is all part of the same mineralized system, a large VMS Besshi-style copper rich environment that notably remains open to the south and at depth."
