Atocha Announces AGM Date and Proposes Share Consolidation

November 15, 2012 - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - Atocha Resources (the Company), TSX.V - ATT announces that the Company will hold its annual general meeting of the shareholders (the "Meeting") on Thursday, December 13, 2012. In addition to the annual meeting materials to be acted upon, the Company will seek shareholder approval for the consolidation of the Company's common shares ("Common Shares") at the board of director's discretion, on the basis of up to one (1) post-consolidation Common Share for every ten (10) pre-consolidation Common Shares or at such lower consolidation ratio as may be required by the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company may consider a name change in conjunction with the proposed consolidation if the shareholders approve and the board of directors deems it appropriate.

It is management's opinion that a share consolidation could benefit the Company by generating investor interest while improving the Company's ability to raise capital in today's challenging public market.

As of today's date, there are 50,854,008 Common Shares issued and outstanding. On completion of a Share Consolidation, at the highest consolidation ratio, there would be an aggregate of approximately 5,084,500 Common Shares issued and outstanding.
