VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2012) - Regal Resources Inc. (the "Company" or "Regal") (CNSX:RGR) is pleased to announce the commencement of an underground sampling and geologic mapping program on the company's 100% owned Sunnyside property in Santa Cruz county, Arizona. This initial phase of the work program will focus on the seven historic mines located within the 5,400 acre property. Production from the mines within the and adjacent to the company's claim block yielded significant amounts of high grade Cu, Ag, Pb, Zn and Au from limited underground production. This production spanned the late 1800's to the 1960's.
The lithology of the underground workings in three adits surrounding the recently identified alteration zone at the base of the lithocap (Regal NR dated Nov.18, 2011) are of particular interest. This underground sampling and mapping coupled with surface geologic mapping may provide target definition of near surface copper porphyry mineralization which could underlie the lithocap. Other underground workings occurring throughout the project area will also be sampled and mapped. This work may help identify additional near-surface drill targets which may include porphyry copper and high grade vein mineralization not previously recognized.
The results of the above described work combined with a geophysical survey will assist in further defining drill targets to be tested in the 2013 drill season.

Geo. a 'qualified person' as defined by National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. Mr. Duerr is the qualified person responsible for the company's current work program conducted on the Sunnyside Property.
