TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 12, 2013) - Xtierra Inc. (News - Market indicators) ("Xtierra" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce that it has engaged Runge Pincock Minarco ("RPM Global"), the world's largest independent group of mining technical experts to take responsibility for the completion of the feasibility study work on its Bilbao project, located in the State of Zacatecas, Mexico and to act as Qualified Person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.

RMP Global, under the leadership of Don Arsenault, P.Eng. (project sponsor) and Kevin Tanas, P. Eng. (project manager), will coordinate and supervise the work of various third party independent consultants who will continue to provide specific input into their respective aspects of the study, including DRA Americas, the former lead consultants who will now focus on the metallurgical and process plant design issues along with the related infrastructure and will co-author the study. Golder Associates will continue with the tailings disposal design, geotechnical parameters for the underground mine design and environmental issues.

RPM Global, having reviewed the extensive work done to date and the large amount of information generated have recommended the completion of a pre-feasibility study as an interim step. This will, importantly, provide an economic analysis of the project on a timely basis while the final component pieces for a definitive feasibility study are completed.


Commenting on the appointment of RPM Global, Terence McKillen, Xtierra's President & CEO said, "We believe that the depth and range of expertise that RPM Global brings to the table and particularly their experience with Mexican development projects, will be of great assistance in completing the Bilbao feasibility study."

The PFS will be upgradable to definitive feasibility study level relatively quickly with some further engineering details to the paste plant and tailings management infrastructure, confirming water resources through drilling of 4 test wells and conducting pump tests, confirming the cost of purchasing water rights, detailed EIS/EIA, and refining the operating and capital costs to +/- 15% and any further recommendations evolving from the PFS. The process plant design, including the related infrastructure, geotechnical 3D Modelling analysis for underground design, majority of the underground design, surface service buildings, power infrastructure, and revised NI 43-101 resources will be at or near the FS level.
