Roberto Milanese, Minera Sud Argentina S.A. VP Exploration said "The altered granodiorite intercepted by Ro1104 and Ro1105 in the Romina Corridor shows that it is highly favorable for mineralization and it opens up a large potential for veins emplaced in the altered granodiorite of Cerro Lara and Pájaro Loco."

Mr Carlos Massa, President and CEO is pleased to announce that Minsud will complete Phase I program by drilling 900 meters at Minas de Pinto, gold target and a second hole to extend and confirm at depth the gold silver veins mineralization within the Cu-Moly porphyry. Drilling will commence last week of October.
