Salazar Cuts 21.43 Meters of 4.01 g/t Gold & 3.23% Copper in Curipamba

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2011) - Salazar Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SRL)(FRANKFURT:CCG) is pleased to report the latest assay results from the ongoing diamond drilling program on its 100% owned (30,327 ha), precious metals' rich Curipamba volcanogenic massive sulphide project in Ecuador. Hole 104 intersected an impressive 21.43 meters of high grade mineralization grading 4.01 g/t gold, 34.42 g/t silver, 3.23% copper and 1.47% zinc (Table 1). This was an infill hole between high grade copper-gold intersections in holes 39 and 56, and is one of number of holes planned to be drilled in a highly prospective area of the deposit containing copper and gold-rich mineralization (Figure 1). This area measures approximately 300 X 125 meters and may increase in size with drilling. Salazar currently has two drills delineating and extending the deposit.

Mr. Salazar says, "The impressive intersection in hole 104 confirms the persistence of high grade copper and gold mineralization in this area of the deposit and indicates potential to extend the mineralization to the west."

Drilling, to-date, on the precious metals rich El Domo volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) deposit has outlined a curvilinear deposit with a strike length of approximately 850 m north-south and with east-west widths ranging between 200 to 300 meters.

Holes 100 and 102 were drilled along the east side of the deposit. Hole 100 intersected 12.10 meters of mineralization (Table 2). The mineralization likely continues to the east beneath the andesite sill as evidenced by hole 98 (News Release of March 29, 2011). Hole 102, which intersected faulted and broken ground and was stopped at 188 meters, intersected several zones of gold, silver and copper mineralization. An undercut/deeper test is warranted in this locale.

Hole 103, collared approximately 26 meters southwest of hole 98, tested for mineralization below the andesite sill. It intersected clasts of massive sulphide in a fault zone in andesite, and bottomed in dacite. The depth at which the sulphide clasts from a massive sulphide horizon became entrained in the fault zone, and how far they may have moved, is currently unknown. However, hole 98 indicated the prospective stratigraphy was down faulted along WNW faults and the VMS continues to be present at the base of the andesite.

In conjunction with the diamond drilling program the Company is also conducting regional prospecting, mapping, stream sediment sampling and soil sampling to identify and develop new targets.

Drill core samples are analyzed by ALS Chemex Labs Ltd., an ISO 9001:2000 certified laboratory. Prospecting, soil and stream sediment samples are analyzed by BSI Inspectorate Services an ISO 9001:2000 certified laboratory which also has an accreditation of ISO 17025. Salazar maintains a QC program whereby standard samples and blanks are inserted into each batch of samples to ensure quality control.
