Pershimco Now Extends the LaPava Gold-Copper Target More Than 500 Metres in Width at the Cerro Quema Project (Panama)

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 12, 2011) - PERSHIMCO RESOURCES INC. ("PERSHIMCO" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PRO)(FRANKFURT:BIZ) is pleased to announce the initial results from the on-going ground geophysical survey (the "Survey") as part of the 2011 exploration campaign at the Company's Cerro Quema Gold-Copper Project (the "Project") in Panama.

The on-going Survey consists of a multi-system approach using a first stage, Schlumberger Electrical Array to define the electrical properties of the La Pava Gold-Copper mineralization, including thickness, resistivity and chargeability, which in turn would set the parameters of the second stage Induced Polarization ("IP") survey. In addition, Pershimco wanted to ascertain the efficiency of this inexpensive method in detecting sulphides at depths of 200 meters or more. A total of six (6) readings were done along Line T 5+00N located 500 meters north of, and parallel to, the LaPava.

Highlights of the Survey to date are as follows:

  • Preliminary inversion on resistivity has mapped the oxide-sulphide interface or the known gold bearing oxide zone and the underlying formational and/or supergene-enriched sulphide zone, located more than 500 meters north of the LaPava deposit which already hosts Mineral Resources in gold as well as copper intercepts and along a 1 kilometer strike length.
  • To date, some 52 kilometers of grid-lines are being cut at LaPava and the surrounding sector to be used in the continuation of the first stage Survey across the full 1.4 kilometer width of the LaPava Target and towards the Chontal Target, located some 2 kilometers further to the east. (Refer to figure 1 link below).
  • Chargeability has likely identified the sulphide zone showing a strong chargeability signature at depths ranging from 200 to 300 meters from surface between Lines 0+00E to beyond 4+00E over a 400 meters length leading towards the Chontal Target. (Refer to figure 2 link below).

In 2011, as the method responded well, Pershimco aims at expanding and define the known limits of the historic mineralization within the 17-kilometre Cerro Quema Gold-Copper Trend (the "Trend"), starting on La Pava, Chontal and Quema-Quemita targets.
