Letter of Intent signed on Soledad Project, Peru
|Vancouver, B.C., September 16, 2013 - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX.V: CN) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with Mariana Resources Ltd. ("Mariana") with respect to Condor's 100% owned Soledad project in the Ancash Province of west central Peru.|
Upon signing the LOI, Mariana was granted an exclusive 45 day period to complete their due diligence and finalize the definitive option agreement outlined in the LOI. Assuming Mariana are satisfied with their due diligence and proceed with the option, Mariana can earn a 70% interest at Soledad by completing cumulative exploration work of US$4 million, and making cumulative cash payments of US$1.1 million, over a four year term. The LOI also specifies a mandatory US$350,000 exploration commitment during the first year. Condor was paid US$25,000 on signing the LOI.
The Soledad property is located within the Central Andes tertiary volcanic belt, approximately 35km south of the Pierina Mine. The property encompasses a large hydro-magmatic center, which includes a cluster of nine quartz-tourmaline-iron oxide breccias, and an epithermal high sulphidation system at higher elevations. In July, Condor received Directoral Resolution No. 189-2013 from the Ministry of Energy and Mines Peru, approving exploration activities and up to 20 drill holes at the Soledad project.
Mariana Resources Ltd is an AIM quoted exploration and development company with an extensive portfolio of gold, silver and copper projects in South America. In Peru, Mariana has an option to earn a 51% interest in highly prospective copper-gold and copper-silver porphyry targets in the Cordillera del Condor of northern Peru. In southern Argentina, Mariana's core gold-silver projects are Las Calandrias (100%), Sierra Blanca (100%), Los Cisnes (100%), Bozal (100%) and Los Amigos JV (30%). These projects are part of a 200,000+ Ha land package in the Deseado Massif epithermal gold-silver district in mining-friendly Santa Cruz Province.
Condor was incorporated in 2003 by field exploration specialists focused on the generation of precious and base metals projects in South America, where management has extensive experience and a proven track record. The Company's long term objective is the discovery of a major precious/base metals deposit through its portfolio of properties in Peru and Chile.
