Salazar Expands Thick High Grade Copper and Zinc Rich Zones at El Domo

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 11, 2010) - Salazar Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SRL)(FRANKFURT:CCG) - Mr. Fredy Salazar, President and CEO, is pleased to announce the latest assay results from drilling at the El Domo deposit in the Las Naves Central area of its Curipamba Volcanic Hosted Massive Sulphide Project in Ecuador.

The Company is pleased to announce results from the El Domo drill program for diamond drill holes (DDH) Curi-10-73 and Curi-10-74 located in the northern part of the deposit (to see Figure 1, please click here: where thick zones of high grade mineralization were encountered including:

  • Curi-10-73 intersected 16.65 meters at 1.1 g/t gold, 27.9 g/t silver, 2.07% copper and 0.64 % zinc
  • Curi-10-74 intersected 3.11 meters at 5.4 g/t gold, 40.0 g/t silver, 0.67 % copper and 6.79 % Zinc

"These two holes pierce thick sections of the deposit west of DDH 60 where an intersection of more than 30 m of high grade was previously reported and continue to expand the northern end of the deposit," says Fredy Salazar, President and CEO. "Continuity of mineralization in the north-south direction at El Domo has now reached approximately 650 m and drilling will continue to delineate the deposit in all directions. Our confidence in the economic potential of this deposit grows with each new drill hole."

Curi-10-73 was drilled at 90 degrees strike on section 5450 N with -70 degree dip and a length of 161.9 m. Curi-10-74 was drilled 270 degrees strike on section 5450 N with -85 degree dip and a length of 150.0 m. The following table provides a summary of the significant intersections of each drill hole:

A QC program was used whereby 5% of all samples sent to the laboratory were standard samples with known silver and gold values. Sample preparation was performed by BSI Inspectorate Quito, Ecuador, using standard industry practices (sample prep minus 32). Analytical work was carried out at the BSI Inspectorate Laboratory in Lima, Peru, using fire assay methods for gold (Au-25 procedure). Standard samples, blanks and duplicate check samples were randomly inserted to the sample batch to ensure quality control.
