Salazar Intersects 23.87 g/t Gold, 1252.71 g/t Silver, 2.29 % Copper, 5.69% Lead and 26.28 % Zinc

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 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-10-71 and Curi-10-72 located in the South Eastern part of the deposit (See Figure 1) where thick zones of high grade mineralization were encountered including:

  • Curi-10-71 intersected 1.91 meters con 23.87 g/t gold, 1252.71 g/t silver, 2.29% Copper, 5.69% lead and 26.28 % zinc
  • Curi-10-72 intersected 4.62 meters at 1.59 g/t gold, 64.57 g/t silver, 1.88 % Copper and 4.25 % Zinc

"The El Domo deposit has expanded another 50 m to the southeast and continues to remain open towards an outstanding geophysical anomaly located approximately another 350 m further around the El Domo intrusive", says Fredy Salazar, President and CEO. "It is of particular interest to note that DDH 71 provides evidence that the precious metal rich sphalerite zone seen in DDH 69 may extend for at least 150 m. Drilling continues to delineate the deposit in all directions".

Curi-10-71 was drilled at 90 degrees strike on section 4950 N with -70 degree dip and a length of 182.75m. Curi-10-72 was drilled 90 degrees strike on section 5000 N with -70 degree dip and a length of 158.75m. 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.
