Camino Minerals Corporation (“Camino” or the “Company”) (COR: TSX-V) is pleased to report on the progress at its Red Beds project, Department of Cuzco, Peru. Field crews were mobilized in March and have identified nine additional beds of high grade copper-silver mineralization; five in the northeast portion of the property, and four in the south. As a result of these discoveries, additional claims have been staked and the property now covers 5,300 hectares.
Of the five beds found in the northeast, three have have been traced on surface for between 1.0 and 1.5 kilometers before the mineralization disappears under cover to the west. Copper values generally ranged between 1.0 % and 4.0% over exposed widths of 0.4 meters to 1.5 meters. These beds appear to correlate with some of the previously located beds that cross a ridge lying 3 kilometers to the west.
In the southern section of the property, sampling along the crest of the central ridge located four relatively closely spaced beds, which returned copper values between 2.5% and 4.0%. Sampling at the base of the ridge two kilometers to the east, located blocks of mineralization with similar characteristics and grades. Additional sampling across the project has been ongoing and results will be reported when they are available. A plan showing the location of the surface sampling is available on the Company website.
As part of the surface sampling program, a man portable drill was used to diamond drill the exposed mineralization. The drill produced the equivalent of BQ thin wall sized core and was able to drill to a depth of up to 5 meters. Assays will be reported when available.
Kenneth C. McNaughton , M.A.Sc., P.Eng., the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, is a Qualified Person (QP) and is responsible for the Red Beds Project exploration program.
