Batero Extends Continuity of Higher Grade Core of Oxidized Gold Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2012) - Batero Gold Corp. ("Batero," "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:BAT)(FRANKFURT:68B)(PINKSHEETS:BELDF) is pleased to report results from the final 28 holes drilled at the La Cumbre deposit ("La Cumbre") at the Company's 100% owned Batero-Quinchia project ("the Project"), located in Risaralda, Colombia. These 28 holes represent the conclusion of the Company's 2012 development drill program.

La Cumbre Drill Highlights:

  • LC070: from 6.5 m to 150 m (end of hole) grading 1.36 g/t gold and 2.58 g/t silver (compare LC023, LC017)
  • LC057: vertical drill hole from 4.00 m to 100.00 m (end of hole) grading 1.20 g/t gold and 2.16 g/t silver, including from 94.00 m to 100.00 m (end of hole) grading 1.69 g/t gold and 3.66 g/t silver
  • LC061: from 0.0 m to 82.7 m (hole terminated due to technical issues) grading 1.07 g/t gold and 3.40 g/t silver
  • All drill holes reported ended in gold mineralization

See Figure 1, Figure 2 and Figure 3 at the end of this release for a Plan View Map and Long Sections of 2012 Drill Hole Locations.

See Table 1 for 2012 Drill Hole Results and Table 2 for Drill Hole Specifications.

Current infill drill results at La Cumbre continue to outline additional volumes in the deposit's core of higher grade oxidized gold mineralization, which grades in excess of 1.0 g/t gold and occurs near and at surface. Infill drilling results also extend the trend of La Cumbre's high grade core to the northwest and to the southeast. Drill hole LC070 comprises the highest gold grades reported to date at the Project and LC057 comprise the second highest gold grades reported to date at the Project located on the north side of the high grade central core at La Cumbre. The total 2012 drill program consisted of 35 holes over 4,947 metres. These holes are located within a 600 metre northwest-southeast strike length zone of continuous gold mineralization located from surface. All drill holes reported ended in gold mineralization.

"We are pleased that the results from our 2012 drill program continue to outline grades of over 1+ g/t gold in the large continuous zones of mineralization at La Cumbre," stated Brandon Rook, Batero's President and Chief Executive Officer. "These positive drill results serve as encouraging signs for the future of the Batero-Quinchia project. As a result of our alliance with Consorcio Minero Horizonte, we now possess the financial and technical capabilities required to move this project forward."

With the 2012 drill plan complete, Batero is working towards the preparation of an updated resource estimate, focusing only on La Cumbre's high grade oxidized gold mineralization at surface as the basis of a comprehensive technical report that will encompass all of the work completed to date at La Cumbre. Remodeling of the La Cumbre oxidized deposit and resources are expected to be completed in early 2013. The high grade core at La Cumbre is expected to improve both the average grade and ounces in an updated mineral resource estimate, as the 1+ g/t gold core is well above the average grade of the oxide mineral resource estimate previously reported in the initial resource estimate (see below).

The Company is currently evaluating the most efficient and cost effective mine scenario, including a leach processing circuit and the optimum starter pit production rate from the high grade oxidized mineralization at La Cumbre. The Company will also include La Cumbre's transition zone, which was not included in the initial oxide resource estimate, in its evaluation. This mine scenario is anticipated to be the first stage of a potentially larger mine plan.

Batero is focused on accelerating the La Cumbre deposit towards a development decision. Engineering, environmental impact assessment, archaeological studies, and social baseline studies are all sufficiently advanced to support any development option. Pending the positive results of the technical report, the Company will assess the merits of advancing the development of the La Cumbre deposit.

Batero recently announced a $20.0 million financing deal and the formation of a strategic alliance with Consorcio Minero Horizonte ("Horizonte"), a privately owned Peruvian company with annual production exceeding 200,000 gold ounces, the fifth largest gold producer in Peru. Horizonte will provide technical expertise as the Company advances La Cumbre deposit through to a production decision. Complete details of this transaction are available within the Company's news release dated November 1, 2012.

Given the positive results from the infill drill program, a revision and updating of the mineral resources at La Cumbre should maintain or better the categorization of the resources in this deposit. The initial mineral resource estimate of the La Cumbre deposit (effective January 25, 2012) at a 0.3 g/t gold cut-off grade and within a Whittle pit shell are as follows (see www.sedar.com for Technical Report amended on April 19, 2012):

  • Indicated resources containing 2.3 million ounces gold in 131.0 million tonnes averaging 0.56 g/t gold
  • Inferred resources containing 0.7 million ounces gold in 39.0 million tonnes averaging 0.52 g/t gold

The initial oxide resource estimate of the La Cumbre deposit (effective January 25, 2012) at a 0.16 g/t gold cut-off grade and within a Whittle pit shell are as follows (see www.sedar.com for Technical Report amended on April 19, 2012):

  • Indicated resources containing 275,000 ounces gold in 15.4 million tonnes averaging 0.56 g/t gold
  • Inferred resources containing 81,000 ounces gold in 6.7 million tonnes averaging 0.37 g/t gold

La Cumbre Deposit Highlights

  • Large continuous zones of at and near surface oxidized gold mineralization grading >0.7 g/t gold
  • 2012 drill program indicates expansion of 1+ g/t gold in central core area
  • Greater than 1.0 g/t gold intercepts occur within the oxide zone of gold mineralization that extends from surface to a depth of up to 70 metres and through the underlying transition zone that exists over a vertical distance of 150 metres to 250 metres
  • Metallurgical bottle role testing in 2012 yielded gold recoveries of 93% and 94% for gold mineralization in the oxide zone and recoveries from 82% to 86% in the transition zone
  • Topography and location of gold mineralization suggest a low strip ratio
  • Permitting process to initiate exploitation activity is ongoing
  • 100% ownership of surface rights at La Cumbre deposit

Ongoing Work Programs

Metallurgical samples from the 2012 drilling have been submitted to SGS (Lima) for gold deportment studies, column leach tests, and supporting bottle roll tests. The Company anticipates all results to be released in the first quarter of 2013. Review of geotechnical results associated with orientated drilling in approximately 50% of the 2012 drill holes will feed into a preliminary open pit design and associated engineering to support a development decision at the La Cumbre deposit.

Drill Hole Program Results

The 2012 development drill program commenced on July 15, 2012 and was completed on September 25, 2012. The drill program was designed to (i) infill the areas of interpolated higher grade mineralization along a northwest-southeast trending corridor, (ii) step out to the northwest and southeast to extend the areas of interpolated higher grade mineralization, and (iii) step out to the north of La Cumbre towards the El Centro zone to test near surface higher grade linkage between the deposits. The drill hole lengths vary from 100 metres to 200 metres, and were multitasked to provide both geological and geotechnical information and sample material for metallurgical test work. Fresh samples of drill core material have been submitted for bottle roll and column leach testing.

Infill Drilling at La Cumbre - North, Central and Southeast

(LC041, 052, 057; LC056, 058, 059, 060, 061, 070; LC066, 067, 068, 069)

Drilling confirmed and delimited the near and at surface high grade mineralization, +1 g/t gold, that starts in the oxidized zone and continues at depth through a low total sulphur transition zone. All holes ended in gold mineralization.

Step Out Drilling at La Cumbre - Northwest and Southeast

(LC044, 046, 047, 050, 055; LC062, 063, 064, 065)

Drilling confirmed continued mineralization along both step out directions. To the northwest the near surface mineralization is limited by a fault structure and non-mineralized volcanic breccia. However, mineralization was encountered at depth across the fault and remains open to the northwest at depth. To the southeast mineralization above 0.5 g/t gold was confirmed to continue in trend and supported by narrow high grade, +1g/t gold, veinlet systems.

Step out Drilling towards El Centro

(LC045, 048, 049, 051, 053, 054)

Results from drilling near El Centro indicate there is little near surface high grade mineralization across the Amarillo Structural Corridor, but confirm narrow high grade epithermal style mineralization located above the deeper porphyry style mineralization previously drilled at El Centro. Further interpretation of the drill data in this sector is required to properly establish the epithermal/ porphyry target at El Centro. This will be further evaluated in 2013.

Sample Preparation, Assays, and Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Core is collected and logged (geological & geotechnical), cut and sampled at Batero Gold's drilling camp at the project area. All QC samples are introduced before shipment to ALS Minerals' sample preparation facilities in Medellin, Colombia. Prepared samples are then shipped to ALS Minerals' analytical facilities in Lima, Peru for analyses. Gold is fire-assayed using a 50 gram aliquot sample and Atomic Absorption finish. Multi-element analysis is achieved by Four Acid Digestion and an Induced Coupled Plasma- Emission Spectroscopy finish.

The Company's QA/QC program includes the regular insertion of blanks, multiple certified assay standards and duplicate samples into the sample shipments. These QC samples are inserted in every assay batch, each batch comprising 24 samples. Monitoring of these QC samples is a critical part of Batero Gold Corp's QA/QC protocols that involve the re-analyses of a minimum of 10 samples bounding any failed control sample. A third party check laboratory receives 5% of all samples to verify the original assay analyses.
