("Casapalca") on the Soledad project in Ancash, Peru. Under the Agreement, Casapalca may earn a 51% interest in the Soledad project by completing 9,000m of diamond drilling and making cash payments totalling US$375,000, over the next 3 years. Condor received US$15,000 on signing the MOU, and US$35,000 on signing the Agreement.|

The Soledad project is fully permitted, and Casapalca have advised they expect to commence drilling operations later this month.
