Camino Minerals Corporation (COR: TSX-V) (“Camino” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that an induced polarization (“I.P.”) survey, totaling 42 line-kilometres, is underway at the Rodeo gold project, located in Durango State, Mexico.
Rodeo hosts gold and silver mineralization related to a low sulfidation epithermal system that is controlled by major north-northwest and east-northeast trending fault systems. Reverse circulation drilling by Canplats Resources Corp. (“Canplats”) in 2004 confirmed the presence of near-surface gold mineralization over significant intervals, hole BR-06 returned 5.5 g/t Au and 12.5 g/t Ag over 28 metres, including 35.6 g/t Au and 37.0 g/t Ag over 1 metre. Subsequent diamond drilling by Canplats in 2007 returned broad mineralized intervals, including 0.23 g/t Au and 8.68 g/t Ag over 103.1 metres (hole BRD-002).
Past drilling on the Rodeo property by Canplats totaled 3,449 meters in 25 holes over a strike length of 550 meters. The epithermal system hosting the Rodeo gold mineralization has been identified over more than 5 kilometers. Only two holes exceeded a depth of 200 metres. The limited drilling to date indicates good potential for high-grade gold mineralization in structurally controlled veins and breccias. The full extent of the Rodeo fault, and other major regional structures crossing the property, will be investigated by the IP survey and by further mapping and geochemical surveys. Camino plans to diamond drill targets at Rodeo in the second quarter of 2011.
Camino’s 100% owned Rodeo gold project covers 13,099 hectares (51 square miles) and is located 150-kilometres north of the city of Durango. The property is accessed by paved highway.
