La Libertad Drill Program Completed
|Vancouver, B.C., March 2, 2011 - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX.V: CN) is pleased to announce it has completed drilling and received results from the drill program on its wholly owned La Libertad porphyry Cu-Mo project located in Ancash Department, Peru, 280 km north of Lima.|
Six diamond drill holes totalling 1,937 metres were completed on the property during the period December 17, 2010 to February 11, 2011. Split core samples were shipped to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Lima for analyses. The drill program was designed primarily to test mineralization within a mineralized porphyry intrusive target defined in outcrop along the length of the Quebrada Shemur, as well as an outcropping hydrothermal breccia body.
The drill program confirmed the presence of low-grade copper and molybdenum mineralization along with abundant disseminated and vein pyrite in all six drill holes in a large and complex phyllic to propylitic altered intrusive porphyry copper system. The best results came from hole LL-005, which returned 0.13%Cu over 90m from 48m to 138m hole depth, including 10m of 0.23%Cu from 58m to 68m. A second interval of 46m from 352m to 398m hole depth assayed 0.11%Cu. Molybdenum was present throughout this hole, grading 0.02%Mo over its 400m length, including 40m of 0.032%Mo from 6m to 46m hole depth and 14m of 0.033%Mo from 350m to 364m hole depth. A drill hole location map and summarized assay intervals for all the holes can be found on the Company's website (www.condorresources.com/s/ProjectMaps.asp?ReportID=416188).
Condor geologists have completed their review of the results, and believe the drilling program succeeded in gaining an initial understanding of the three dimensional alteration system associated with La Libertad but has not yet located the interpreted centre of the porphyry copper system where better grades may be expected. A more thorough review of the data, along with additional drilling, is warranted to locate the porphyry centre.
