Salazar Makes Final Payment on Curipamba Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2009) - Salazar Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SRL)(FRANKFURT:CCG) reports that a final option payment of $500,000 USD was recently made finalizing the acquisition of the Curipamba Property. The Curipamba Property is now 100% owned by Salazar and is royalty free. This payment secures 30,327 hectares which contain the recently discovered Curipamba VMS district, including the El Domo deposit and other multiple high priority targets such as Sesmo Sur, Las Naves Central and Piedras Blancas.

The Company is well prepared for the next phase of exploration and development at the Curipamba Project. Locally, the project is very well supported by the community; water permits for the next phase of exploration and development have been received; a comprehensive exploration and development program has been designed by the Company and is logistically ready to be implemented; the final EIA has been submitted to the government; all that the Company now awaits is final approval from the government.

Upon final approval, Salazar looks forward to recommencing its exploration activities and is still anticipating this to be August, 2009. A drill program is planned at El Domo which has an inferred resource, from only 13 drill holes, of approximately four million tonnes grading 3.48 grams per tonne gold, 76.33 grams per tonne silver, 2.51 per cent copper, 4.55 per cent zinc and 0.47 per cent lead (See Press Release February 25, 2009). The drill program will advance and expand the El Domo deposit which remains open in three directions. The Company also plans to test several other high-priority targets that reflect similar geophysical signatures to El Domo in the immediate area with the anticipation of discovering other VMS deposits. With success, a new VMS district will have been discovered by Salazar, and with the final payment now made and the land position secured, Salazar believes it has encompassed the entire VMS district potential as defined by the Curipamba Project land position.
