VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 10, 2012) - Indico Resources Ltd. ("Indico" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IDI)(OTCQX:IDIFF) is pleased to announce the beginning of its Phase 2 drilling campaign at the Ocaña Cu-Au-Mo porphyry in Southern Peru.
The planned drill program is underway with two diamond drill rigs on site drilling both day and night shift. Indico's planned Phase 2 drilling program at Ocaña totals a minimum 4400m. The first 1000 metres will consist of shallow holes (200m or less) along the southern ridge to test primarily for supergene sulphide and oxide mineralization. The holes will be drilled a short way into the hypogene zone to test the southern extents, and some may be extended. The remainder of the holes are infill drilling to test the upper higher-grade hypogene zones within the breccia target, as well as further delimit the southern and eastern edges of both hypogene and supergene mineralization. The drill hole spacing will be roughly 200 metres. With Phase 2 completed, Indico should have sufficient data to estimate Inferred resources at Ocaña.
