Condor Acquires the La Libertad Porphyry Copper Prospect in Northern Peru
|Vancouver, B.C., June 18, 2007 - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition of the La Libertad porphyry copper prospect in Peru, in a sealed bid mining auction against several major competitors.|
The 2 sq km property is situated 280 km north of Lima, and covers the core of an intensely-altered intrusive porphyry copper system in the Cordillera Occidental de los Andes copper belt. Fracture zones within the system exhibit very high-grade secondary copper mineralization in the form of chalcocite, malachite and chrysocolla.
La Libertad was originally owned by BHP but was abandoned by them when they left Peru in 2006. It appears that La Libertad has no past drilling history, although small-scale mining of Ag-Pb-Zn veins and structures peripheral to the large alteration system was carried out in the 1980's.
Based on the size of the porphyry copper system within the property, the intensity of alteration, the strongly-developed quartz-limonite stockwork vein system and the presence of high grade secondary copper enrichment, Condor geologists believe that the La Libertad prospect exhibits potential to host a significant porphyry copper deposit. Preliminary observations suggest similar geology to the La Granja deposit located further north in the same copper belt, with reserves of 3.2 billion tones grading 0.62%Cu.
Condor will be sending a field crew to the La Libertad prospect soon, to commence an initial mapping and sampling program.
