Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 5:32 PM on Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

October 9, 2012 – Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA – Atocha Resources (the Company), TSX.V – ATT is pleased to announce its completion of the mapping and prospecting program on the Saint Sixte property.

Atocha’s Saint Sixte graphite property covers 1,740 hectares in the Grenville sub-province of the Precambrian Shield in Quebec.  The geological setting is considered to be favorable for deposits of graphite, gold, silver, copper, nickel, PGE (platinum group element) and REE (rare earth element) mineralization.

The Saint-Sixte property is located five kilometres west of the town of Saint-Sixte, Quebec just off Route 317, approximately 65 kilometres from Ottawa.  The property covers a known extension of an airborne magnetic low anomaly that extends directly from Soldi Ventures Inc. (TSX.V- SOV) Lochaber graphite property.  Located in a historic graphite mining district, it was initially explored for graphite in the early 1950′s and again in the 1980′s.

The Company hired a ground team to conduct a mapping and prospecting program to investigate the potential on the Saint-Sixte property.  Reconnaissance mapping of the area has been done and any significant rock samples will be sent for analysis to Activation Laboratories.  Updates on the results will be announced as soon as they become available.

The Saint Sixte property is 100% owned by Atocha as staked claims and is not subject to any NSR or work commitments.
