Salazar Drill Program Recommences at Sesmo Sur, Curipamba Project, Ecuador

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2007) - Salazar Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SRL)(FRANKFURT:CCG) is pleased to announce that the drill program recommenced Thursday, November 15, 2007 at the Sesmo Sur area, Curipamba Project, Ecuador. Additionally, there will be a second drill rig mobilized shortly to arrive on site in early December to accelerate the exploration diamond drill program.

New drill targets will be added to the 9000 metre drill program. The Company will add six drill holes totaling an additional 1500 meters. The new targets will test the large IP anomaly identified during the recent ground geophysics program at Sesmo Sur.

Drill results update from holes 3 and 5:

The following drill holes successfully intersected the hydrothermal breccias located near surface corresponding with the magnetic low and coincident geochemical anomalies (to see Figure 1 please click on: http://www.ccnmatthews.com/docs/srl1119Fig1.jpg). The recent drill holes completed and being reported on have not tested the strong IP geophysical anomalies identified from the ground geophysics program.

Drill holes 3 and 5 were sent to the laboratory prior to the disruption at the Project while drill hole 4 had yet to be delivered and due to the disruption half the drill core from this hole was compromised. In addition, drill holes 6 through 9 were also compromised.

On a move forward basis all drill core will be shipped off site to a secure storage location in a large neighboring city where logging of the core and preparation of the core for lab analysis will take place.

Mr. Salazar, President and CEO, stated, "I am very pleased with the recommencement of our drilling operations. To bring a second drill rig to the property will allow us to accelerate the exploration program, make up for downtime, and test additional promising targets at our second high priority target area. With a workforce of over one hundred people back in the field conducting sampling and trenching programs, ground geophysics programs, and multiple diamond drill programs, we will be positioned on a move forward basis to provide you, the shareholders, with a steady flow of news over the coming weeks and months."

Sample preparation was performed by ALS Chemex Quito, Ecuador, using standard industry practices (sample prep minus 32). Analytical work was carried out at the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Lima, Peru, using fire assay methods for gold (Au-25 procedure). Standard samples, blanks and duplicate check samples were randomly inserted to the sample batch to ensure quality control.
