Camino Minerals Corporation: Induced Polarization Survey Underway at El Rincon Gold Project; 3,000 Metre Reverse Circulation Drilling Program to Begin in January

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - Camino Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:COR) ("Camino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that an induced polarization ("I.P.") survey began yesterday at the El Rincon gold project, located in Durango State, Mexico.

The I.P. survey, totaling approximately 30 line kilometers, is focused on the western part of the property where Camino earlier returned samples grading up to 4.03 g/t Au (see news release dated October 13, 2010) from an area known as the Ventana zone. Ventana is located at the southern edge of a gold-in-soils geochemical anomaly that begins at the western edge of the property boundary and is situated in the same northeast-trending structural corridor that hosts Argonaut Gold's El Castillo gold mine, located 3-km to the west. Largely overlain by post mineral volcaniclastic rocks and ignimbrites the I.P. survey will help further refine targets for a 3,000 metre reverse circulation drill program scheduled to begin in early January, 2011.

In addition to the I.P. survey currently underway at El Rincon, an exploration crew has been mobilized to the Rodeo gold project, also located in Durango State, to map the project at a scale 1:25,000. Camino plans to carry out an I.P. survey at Rodeo early in the new year with a diamond drill program to follow.

Camino is also pleased to announce that it has signed exploration activity agreements with a number of Ejidos and private landowners in areas where the Company will be active at both El Rincon and Rodeo.
