Drilling to Commence on the Pucamayo West Gold-Silver Target
|Vancouver, B.C., March 3, 2011 - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX.V: CN) is pleased to announce that a diamond drill rig is scheduled to be mobilized onto the Pucamayo West Gold-Silver target on March 7th. Road access and drill platform construction are well advanced in anticipation of the drilling rig. |
The Pucamayo West Gold-Silver target has never been drill tested. The drill program at Pucamayo West will test the NW and NE trending low to intermediate sulphidation multiphase quartz-carbonate veins which have been discovered to date, the largest of which has been traced along strike for 1500m with an average width of over 15m. Channel samples from the epithermal Au-Ag veins at Pucamayo West have returned values up to 86.6 g/t Au and 84.8 g/t Ag over 3m, 5.85 g/t Au and 1.69 g/t Ag over 10m, and 1.34 g/t Au and 624 g/t Ag over a 2m width. Independent sample verification by Condor's Qualified Person, Dr. Richard Culbert, P.Eng., returned results which included 1.77 g/t Au and 257 g/t Ag over 1.50m, 1.57 g/t Au and 137 g/t Ag over 2.2m, 0.96 g/t Au and 362 g/t Ag over 1.8m and 0.33 g/t Au and 387 g/t Ag over 1m. Numerous geophysical resistivity and chargeability anomalies exist coincident with the dominant NNW-striking vein and the drill program will test this structure at several locations and depths along strike, as well as secondary structures which have also returned encouraging surface results.
Continuing exploration on the east side of the Pucamayo property recently led to the discovery of a southerly extension of the Tinco alteration zone, where anomalous geochemical gold values have been found. As a result, an additional 5 sq km have been staked at Pucamayo, increasing the total size of the project to 47 sq km.
