Vancouver, B.C., February 5, 2013 – INCA ONE RESOURCES CORP. (IO:TSXv) –(“the Company” or “Inca One”) announces that as part of Peruvian President Huamala’s mandate for public investment , $68 million US dollars will be spent over the span of 2013-2015 on building and improving infrastructure in Northern Peru to rehabilitating roads from Chamaya –Jaen–San Ignacio–Rio Chinchipe near the Peruvian / Ecuador boarder. This is a major transformation of approx 125Km of poorly build gravel/dirt roads to widened paved roads, and great news for both local residents and foreign operating mining operation.

About Inca One:
Inca One Resources Corp. (IO:TSXv) is focused on acquiring and advancing properties in Peru with an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Las Huaquillas Gold project.
In 1998, Sulliden Resources estimated a geological resource on Las Huaquillas of 6.57 million tons grading 2.09 g/t Au and 25.2 g/t Ag (equivalent to 443,000 ounces of gold and 5.3 million ounces of silver)*. The historical estimate used a cut-off of 1.5 g/t gold and remains open at depth and along its 2.2 Km strike.
*Note: The historic resource was calculated in 1998 and the Company has not completed the work necessary to have the historical estimate verified by a Qualified Person. The Company is not treating the estimate as a current NI 43-101 defined resource and the historical estimate should not be relied upon. The Project will require considerable future exploration which the Company intends to carry out in due course.
