Vancouver, British Columbia - Indico Resources Ltd. ("Indico" or the "Company") (TSX-V: IDI, OTCQX: IDIFF) is pleased to announce that it has closed an initial Cdn$938,250 of its non-brokered private placement announced on January 18, 2012 and increased on March 1, 2012. These funds were raised by Indico issuing a total of 3,753,000 common shares at a price of Cdn$0.25 per share.

Total commissions of Cdn$40,560 and 162,240 broker's warrants were paid by Indico to agents as consideration for arranging this portion of the private placement. Each broker's warrant entitles the holder to purchase one common share of Indico at a price of Cdn$0.25 until April 13, 2013.

The securities issued pursuant to this private placement, and any common shares to be issued upon the exercise of the broker's warrants, are subject to a hold period expiring August 14, 2012.

The net proceeds from the private placement are intended to be used to further exploration of the Company's Ocaña porphyry copper-gold project in Peru and for general working capital purposes. Indico expects to close the balance of its Cdn$2,000,000 private placement in the next few weeks.
