VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2009) - Salazar Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SRL) is pleased to report that it has received the final approval for its environmental management plan update for the Curipamba Project, Ecuador. The Company now awaits official notice from the Ministry of Non-Renewable Resources for recommencement of operations.

On April 9, 2009 the company received official notice from the Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, stating that the company was authorized to restart its activities, once necessary approvals have been obtained:

1. Water Permit from the National Water Authority - Obtained June 11, 2009.

Fredy Salazar, President and CEO states, "This is a milestone event for Salazar Resources as we can now look to recommence our programs and follow up on our success we had prior to the Mining Mandate. Salazar has been working closely with the government and the granting of this permit shows us Ecuador's commitment to responsible mining in the country. This approval now aligns us with other companies at this stage waiting for final notice such as Kinross (T.K) and Corriente (T.CTQ). We see the recent developments taking place in Ecuador paralleling the positive outcome recently in Mongolia, and the favourable effect it had within the international investment industry."
