Cayden Discovers More High Grades in Trenches at El Barqueno, Extends Strike Length and Prepares to Commence Drilling

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 4, 2013) -

Editors Note: There are two figures associated with this press release.

Cayden Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYD)(PINKSHEETS:CDKNF) ("Cayden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce additional results from its ongoing surface program on the El Barqueño Gold Property located in Jalisco State, Mexico.

The Peña de Oro target area trench highlights include 20 meters of 3.6 g/t Au, 8 meters of 7.9 g/t Au and 9 meters of 7.9 g/t Au. These new results extend the known mineralization in both directions along strike; to a total strike length of 800 meters (See Figure 1 below or website at

Table 1. Trench results from the Peña de Oro target area at El Barqueño:

Trench ID Width (m) Grade (g/t Au) Notes Trench ID Width (m) Grade (g/t Au) Notes
PO001C 8 0.6 PO025 25 1.7 open
PO003B 5 1 open including 1 10.7 open
PO008 10 1.8 open PO026 8 1 open
PO013 8 0.7 open PO030A 3 12.1 open
PO019 8 2.1 open PO030B 3 5.4 open
PO020A 7 2 open including 1 15.7 open
PO020B 20 3.6 open PO032 7 0.5 open
including 1 25.4 open PO039A 9 7.9 open
PO023 5 0.7 open PO039A 3 18.3 open
PO024 8 7.9 open PO039B 11 1 oblique
PO049 13 1.4 open

At the Azteca target area, Cayden has trenched 4 meters of 41.6 g/t Au including 2 meters of 74.2 g/t Au in a new discovery to the northeast of the current known surface mineralization. With these latest results, the strike length of the Azteca target area has been extended from 1.4 km to 2.2 km (See Figure 2 below or website at The samples were taken using hand-dug trenches on limited outcropping (following up on soil and grab sample anomalies - see NR dated July 18, 2013). The highest gold values came from rocks containing massive iron oxide, including specular hematite accompanied by lesser amounts of banded quartz veining.

Trench ID Width (m) Grade (g/t Au) Notes Trench ID Width (m) Grade (g/t Au) Notes
ZP001 2 2.2 open ZP005 4 41.6 open
ZP004 5 1.6 open including 2 74.2 open

The majority of trenches in both target areas end in mineralization. Cayden is currently extending these trenches and expanding the scope of the rest of the surface exploration program throughout the concessions.

The initial drill program is scheduled to start on Tuesday, September 10th and will consist of 5,000 meters that will be drilled on and around the Azteca target area. The initial program will consist of approximately 25 holes at an overall average depth of 200 meters.

Ivan Bebek, President and CEO commented, "We are excited to start our initial drill program at the Azteca target area next week where we have encountered extensive gold mineralization at surface in the past 9 months. We are also very pleased with the fact that we are still continuing to add strike length to our existing targets and finding new gold targets throughout the concessions."

David Hladky, P. Geo. is the Qualified Person with respect to NI 43-101 at El Barqueño. All trench intercepts were obtained from continuous channel sampling at 0.75 to 1.5 meter intervals, primarily through road cuts and trenches excavated by previous operators. As the mapped mineralized corridors strike EW to ENE, the trenches and road cuts intersect the mineralization as close to perpendicular as possible. Thus, the Company believes that the trench intercepts represent 70-100 percent of the true width except where noted. Intercepts were calculated assuming a bulk-mining scenario, with a width cutoff of five meters and grade cutoff of 0.5 g/t Au. The wider intercepts have, at maximum, five consecutive meters less than 0.2 g/t at which time two intercepts were composited. Any intercepts that are bound by less than five meters of less than 0.2 g/t at the beginning and end of the trench length are considered open. All samples are assayed using standard 30 gram fire assay with atomic absorption finish by Acme Labs in Vancouver, Ca. QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates, re-assays, and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed. On Behalf of the Board, Ivan Bebek, President and CEO.
