Salazar Resources Reports High Grade Intersections in Ecuador

Salazar Resources Ltd. has reported new high grade intersections from the ongoing diamond drill program on its 100% owned (30,327 ha), precious metals' rich, Curipamba volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) project in Ecuador.

The six holes reported here are part of the on-going diamond drilling program on the El Domo VMS deposit which continues to intersect significant VMS mineralization under the andesite sill. These intersections, along part of the western margin of the andesite sill, clearly show there is significant, as yet untested, exploration potential beneath the andesite sill to the east.

  • CURI-137 intersected 9.94 meters grading 3.48 g/t gold, 91.95 g/t silver, 4.40% copper and 14.83% zinc, including 3.72 meters grading 7.79g/t gold, 187.66 g/t silver, 10.35% copper and 34.26% zinc in massive to semi-massive sulphide mineralization under the andesite sill. This mineralization is open and additional drilling is required in this area.
  • CURI-139 intersected 4.96 meters grading 1.14 g/t gold, 15.43 g/t silver and in massive sulphide under the andesite sill. This mineralization is open and additional drilling is required in this area.
  • CURI-136 intersected 1.25 meters grading 1.20 g/t gold, 29.8 g/t silver and 2.02% copper in massive sulphide mineralization. This is a new area of high grade massive sulphide mineralization at the southern end of the deposit. The mineralization is open to the southwest. Additional drilling is required in this area.
  • CURI-138 intersected 16.36 meters grading 0.87 g/t gold, 31.68 g/t silver, 0.12% copper.

Mr. Salazar commented, "We are pleased with these six hole results since they confirm that El Domo is still open in several directions and demonstrate potential to continue encountering massive sulphide mineralization."

CURI-136 and CURI-139 were collared close together approximately 130 meters east of CURI-129, to test for mineralization under the andesite sill. Both holes intersected semi-massive to massive sulphide mineralization under the andesite. The presence of semi-massive to massive mineralization in this locale, approximately 75 meters from the edge of the andesite, is clear evidence that high grade mineralization is to be found beneath the andesite. Further exploration drilling is required in this area.

CURI-137 and CURI-138 were drilled from the same platform to test for mineralization under the andesite sill. CURI-137 intersected semi-massive to massive sulphide mineralization approximately 37 meters below the andesite sill. CURI-137 was drilled approximately 55 meters south of CURI-135 which intersected 9.66 meters grading 6.23 g/t gold, 183.43 g/t silver, 1.36% copper, 1.13% lead and 6.93% zinc. The continuation of high grade mineralization southwards from CURI-135, beneath the andesite, is extremely encouraging.

CURI-140, collared approximately 65 meters east of CURI-131 intersected faulted semi-massive and stockwork mineralization under the andesite.

CURI-141 was drilled approximately 55 meters SSW of CURI-136, intersected a broadly similar interval of mineralization.

Drill core samples are analyzed by ALS Chemex Labs Ltd. and IBS Inspectorate, ISO 9001:2000 certified laboratories. Salazar maintains a QAQC program whereby standard samples and blanks are inserted into each batch of samples to ensure quality control.
