Seven Drill Holes Completed at Pucamayo West
|Vancouver, B.C., April 11, 2011 - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX.V: CN). Further to our news release of March 3rd, Condor is pleased to report that drilling is progressing well, with seven drill holes completed at the Pucamayo West Gold-Silver prospect located in Ica Department, Peru. No assays have yet been received from the active drill program. |
The first drill hole was collared on March 16th, and to date, a total of seven of twelve planned shallow diamond drill holes totalling 777 meters have been completed.
The drill program at Pucamayo West is designed to test the numerous NW and NE trending low to intermediate sulphidation multiphase quartz-carbonate veins, the largest of which has been traced along strike for 1500m with an average width on surface of over 15m. The majority of the drill holes to date have successfully intersected the quartz-carbonate veins and brecciated quartz at vertical depths of 30m to 67m below surface and with interpreted true widths ranging up to 8m. The quartz veins show a complicated history of multiple generations of veining. Several resistivity and chargeability geophysical anomalies are coincident with the surface mineralized dominant NNW-striking vein and associated secondary structures. The current drill program is testing these structures at several locations along strike and at depth. To date, the geophysical anomalies are an excellent guide to tracing the epithermal veins below surface.
Road access and drill platform construction, along with continued prospecting, has resulted in the discovery of several new veins on the property which are currently being methodically sampled.
The diamond drilling is being conducted according to standard industry best practices. HQ core is logged and the samples are marked prior to being systematically photographed. Blanks and certified standards are routinely added into the sample sequence in order to independently assess analytical accuracy. Condor personnel transport the sealed sample bags to the ALS Peru laboratory in Lima for analysis. The ALS Peru facility complies with the requirements for the international standards ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 17025:2005.
Results will be released upon completion of the drill program and subsequent receipt of assays from the laboratory.
Condor Resources Inc. was incorporated in 2003 by field exploration specialists focused on the generation of gold and copper projects in South America, where management has extensive experience and a proven track record of discovery. The Company's long term objective is the discovery of a major new gold and/or base metal deposit, and its business plan offers shareholders access to an exciting and growing portfolio of discovery stage properties, including six 100% owned projects in Chile, and seven projects in Peru, each offering a unique path to discovery.
