VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 18, 2014) - Coro Mining Corp. ("Coro" or the "Company") (TSX:COP) has agreed a three month extension to the option agreement with the property owners of the El Desesperado project, at a cost of US$20,000 per month. Coro has recently completed a 5 hole, 1191m diamond drilling program and a 7 hole, 950m reverse circulation drilling program and assay results for the program will be released in due course. As a result of greater geological complexity than anticipated, combined with the diamond drilling difficulties that necessitated completion of the program with an RC rig, the Company had not generated sufficient information to justify making the US$650,000 option payment due on February 17, 2014.
Alan Stephens, FIMMM, President and CEO, of Coro Mining Corp, a geologist with more than 38 years of experience, and a Qualified Person for the purposes of NI 43-101, is responsible for the contents of this news release.
