VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 4, 2013) - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CN) Further to the Company's news release of September 16th, Condor is pleased to announce that Mariana Resources Ltd. ("Mariana") has successfully completed their due diligence on Condor's 100% owned Soledad project in west central Peru, and has given notice they wish to proceed with the definitive option agreement. Mariana and Condor are now finalizing the option agreement outlined in the previously signed Letter of Intent ("LOI").

Per the LOI, Mariana can earn a 70% interest at Soledad by completing cumulative exploration work of US$4 million, and making cumulative cash payments of US$1.1 million, over a four year term. Mariana will be obligated to complete an exploration program during the first year, which includes 2000m of drilling.

In July, Condor received Directoral Resolution No. 189-2013 from the Ministry of Energy and Mines Peru, approving exploration activities and up to 20 drill holes at the Soledad project.

The Soledad property is located within the Central Andes tertiary volcanic belt, approximately 35km south of the Pierina Mine. The property encompasses a large hydro-magmatic center, which includes a cluster of nine quartz-tourmaline-iron oxide breccias, and an epithermal high sulphidation system at higher elevations.
