Fredy Salazar, President and CEO states, "We are very pleased to recommence our drilling and continue on the success we experienced in our Phase 1 program which was cut short with the introduction of the mining mandate. We are confident that the continuation of the delineation drilling of the El Domo deposit will add significant tonnage to first of what could be many polymetallic mineralized bodies on the Curipamba project."

The Curipamba Project:

The Curipamba Project is a new gold rich and base metal Volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) camp in western Ecuador, in the Western Mountain range's Macuchi Group about a 2.5-hour drive from Ecuador's major port city, Guayaquil. There are a number of priority areas identified on the Curipamba project area including Sesmo Sur, Las Naves Central and Piedras Blancas.

Thus far, Salazar has discovered one deposit with a resource at Curipamba (El Domo) and one additional occurrence (Sesmo Sur). The Curipamba VMS camp is one of three major hydrothermal centres in the Ecuadorian Andes, each separated by 50-60 km. The Curipamba district is the southernmost of the three significant VMS camps in the Eocene volcanic arc of Ecuador.
