Largo Begins 3,000 Meter Drilling Program At Its Macuchi Property, Ecuador

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - July 26, 2005) -

Phase II program to drill numerous strong targets identified by its recent induced polarization (IP) survey

Largo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:LGO) announced today that drilling has begun at its Macuchi property, in central Ecuador. The 3,000 meter drill program will focus on the favourable results from the recent induced polarization (IP) survey which has identified numerous strong IP anomalies coincident with and along strike of the known massive sulphide mineralization at Macuchi. The current survey has delineated coincident chargeability and resistivity anomalies in the Minchoa 1, 2 & 3, Patino, Mercedes/Esperanza, and San Carlos target areas (see Figure 1 below and color image at ). The data shows strong responses in the areas where sulphide occurrences are known and significantly extend the potential mineralization. It has also identified other strong anomalies in areas previously untested. The induced polarization coverage is currently being extended to cover strong anomalies that are open to the east, west and south.

In the Minchoa 1, 2, and 3 areas the IP anomalies will be tested with 6 holes. At Patino where previous drilling by Largo indicated 50 to 100 meters of massive sulphide mineralization (see press release January 7, 2005), initially 2 holes will be drilled. The data also indicates that a completely new zone, parallel to the known Au-Cu hosting lithology lies approximately 500 meters to the west and will be tested with 4 holes. At San Carlos, 2 holes will be drilled to test the zinc-rich mineralization.
