Drill Results from the Condor de Oro Project; Disseminated Gold from surface to 258m in First Hole
|Vancouver, B.C., November 20, 2013 - Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX.V: CN) is pleased to announce assay results have been received from Mariana Resources Ltd. ("Mariana") on the first two holes completed at Condor de Oro, located along the gold-copper Cordillera del Condor belt in northern Peru. The 1500m drill program is intended to test the four square kilometre target area, which potentially hosts a copper-gold system related to porphyritic intrusions. |
The initial hole confirms the potential for discovery of an intrusive related large-tonnage disseminated gold system on the Condor de Oro Project. Hole 1 (CDOYE-001) was completed to a depth of 282m, and was strongly anomalous in gold from surface to 258m, averaging 0.18g/t Au over this interval. Higher grade intervals included 0.85g/t Au over 12m from surface, and 0.31g/t Au over 100m from surface.
Hole 2 (CDOYE-002), located approximately 500m to the northwest of Hole 1, intersected molybdenum in quartz veins hosted by quartz feldspar porphyry from 81m to the end of the hole, with copper and molybdenum values increasing at the lower depths. The last 26.8m of the hole reported 110ppm molybdenum. Hole 2 was abandoned at 153m, 200m short of its target depth, due to technical problems. Hole 2 had lower gold content than Hole 1 and is interpreted to have intersected the marginal alteration assemblage associated with the gold mineralization.
Strong sericitic, illite, propyliitc, and argillic alteration have been observed in Holes 1 and 2. Hole 3 (CDOYE-03) was drilled from the same pad as hole 2, with a 270 degree change in azimuth, and has been completed to its planned depth of 253m. Hole 3 is currently being logged and sampled with no assay results to date.
Hole 4 (CDOYE-04 has now commenced and is located approximately 1.2km southwest of the Hole 1, and is intended to test anomalous geochemistry at the southwest border of the intrusive system.
The Condor de Oro concessions are owned by Exploraciones Aguila Dorada S.A.C. ("EAD"). Condor has an irrevocable option to acquire 85% of the issued shares of EAD, and in turn, Condor has granted Mariana an option to acquire 60% of Condor's shareholding interest, being an overall 51% interest. Mariana is assisting EAD with the drill program under the terms of the option agreement with Condor.
