Kleinerna : **NEWS**CUERVO RES::
February 5, 2008 ? Toronto, ON
Cuervo Resources Inc. (CNQ-IRON; FWB-CRR; ?Cuervo? or the ?Company?) announces
results from six additional drill holes from the Company?s Cerro Ccopane iron ore project in
southern Perú. The new holes, together with 38 previously reported holes, continue to delineate
the Orcopura body of mineralization, one of five zones identified to date on the property.
The accompanying table lists the significant intersections from the six holes being reported, the
most significant of which were 60.5% Fe over 66.8 meters in hole ODH - 40 and 56% Fe over
104.5 meters in ODH - 41. The weighted average in the six new holes was 51.57% Fe over 539.2
meters of reported sampling.
The Company continues to drill the Orcopura zone of mineralization while logistical
preparations are underway for the drilling of the four other known zones. A dedicated sample
preparation laboratory is also under construction on site to assure quality control and to expedite
the exploration program.
The Company?s focus on iron ore and Perú maintains the hallmark of being a ?win-win?
situation. Canada and Perú recently signed a free trade agreement (?FTA?), to be ratified by the
Canadian Parliament. This FTA is expected to hold great importance for the mining industry,
especially for Canadian players operating in Perú. On the heels of this, Vale, the world?s largest
producer of iron ore, is expected to start negotiations toward 2008 contract iron ore prices by
asking for a 70% increase in pricing over 2007; however, consensus is that final settlement will
be at about a 25% premium over last year?s contract prices. China continues to seek involvement
in ferrous and base metal plays around the world and now India appears to have entered that fray
on the iron ore front.
Three diamond drills are operating on the property under contract from MDH S.A.C. of Lima,
Peru. Previous results were announced in press releases dated October 22nd, October 30th,
November 1st, November 15th and December 6th 2007 and January 15th 2008 and include
intersections of up to 57.31 %Fe over 131.25 m (ODH ? 01) and 41.29% Fe over 356.50 m
(ODH ? 33).

All drill holes were logged and sampled at the property campsite on the property under the
direction of Minera Cuervo?s senior geologist, ing. Abraham Castillo Ll. A nominal sampling
interval of 1.5 m is currently being used within sections of typical iron mineralization. Analyses
were performed by SGS Minerals Services at their laboratory facilities in Lima (Callao), Perú.
The reported Iron (Fe) analyses were determined by titration methods, sulphur (S) were carried
out with a LECO furnace. All other reported analyses, which include phosphorus (P), manganese
(Mn) and copper (Cu), were by performed ICP-AES after a multi-acid (?total?) digestion.
Laboratory check analyses were performed on approximately 10% of the samples submitted
while field duplicate samples are submitted on a rate of approximately 5% of the total samples
sent to the laboratory. The Company is satisfied with the reproducibility of analyses for the
ODH ? 34 was drilled toward grid north at an inclination of 45° and to a depth of 96.90 m from
the same location as previously announced holes ODH ? 30, ODH ? 32 and ODH ? 35. Results
were not available at the time of the release of data from the other holes. Elevation of the
location is 3665 m AMSL;
ODH ? 39, ODH ? 42 and ODH ? 43 were all drilled from the same platform, ODH ? 39 was a
vertical drill hole to a depth of 126.50 m, ODH ? 42 was drilled toward grid east at an inclination
of 60° to a depth of 129.10 m and ODH ? 43 was drilled toward grid south at an inclination of
60° to a depth of 112.25 m. The site was located 50 m to the (grid) east of holes ODH ? 23, ODH
? 24, ODH ? 26, ODH ? 27 and ODH ? 29 and 50 m to the west of ODH ? 30, ODH ? 32, ODH
? 34 and ODH ? 35. Elevation of the location is 3690 m AMSL;
ODH ? 40 was drilled toward grid north at an inclination of 45° and to a depth of 241.45 m from
the same location as ODH ? 33 the most (grid) westerly of holes drilled and reported on to date.
Elevation of the location is 3630 m; and
