Darwin Commences Diamond Drilling at Suriloma Gold Project Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - June 19, 2013) - Darwin Resources Corp. ("Darwin" or "The Company") (TSX VENTURE:DAR)(PINKSHEETS:DARWF)(FRANKFURT:DWU): Dr. Graham Carman, President & CEO, is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced its initial drilling program at the Suriloma epithermal gold project, Department of La Libertad, Peru. Darwin has planned a 12-hole, 2,000 metre diamond drill program to test outcropping oxide gold mineralization at the La Puerta target area. Drill holes will test beneath the surface oxide mineralization to a depth of approximately 150 metres.

The drill program has started with one drilling rig currently operating. A second drill rig will be mobilized to site within the next week to speed up the drilling process and maximise cost efficiencies. The entire drill program is expected to take approximately 8 weeks. Results for the first holes should be available by the end of July, and all results published by September.

The Suriloma project is located in a prolific gold belt in Peru, 30km along strike from Barrick's Lagunas Norte mine and 50km from Rio Alto's La Arena mine. Darwin previously reported very encouraging channel sampling results from the La Puerta area (see news release December 14, 2012, and January 10, 2013) from outcropping oxide mineralization. Darwin's channel sampling highlighted a quartz stockwork zone covering 1,300 metres open-ended and up to 100m wide within two sub-parallel zones. Channel sampling included 16 metres @ 2.12 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from Zone A, and 29 metres @ 1.60 g/t gold from Zone B.

The qualified person, Dr Graham Carman, Darwin's President and CEO, and a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, has reviewed and verified the technical contents of this release.


Darwin is a resource acquisition and development company focussing on Peru. The Company has an option to acquire 100% of the Suriloma epithermal gold property in the Department of La Libertad.

On behalf of the Board,

Dr Graham Carman, President & CEO
