Mundoro Capital Inc. ("Mundoro" or the "Company"), through its wholly-owned subsidiary in the Republic of Serbia ("Serbia"), is pleased to report that it has received approval from the Serbian government for two additional exploration licenses (see attached map) in the south Timok Magmatic Complex (TMC):
i) Osnic: The Osnic license area totals 74.2 sq. km and is located approximately 22 km south of the Bor porphyry and high sulphidation ore body. The Osnic license is directly east of and adjacent to the Savinac license and north of the Bacevica license (see Company's press release dated November 29, 2012).
ii) Sumrakovac: The Sumrakovac license area totals 102.8 sq. km and is located approximately 11 km southwest of the Bor porphyry and high sulphidation ore body. Sumrakovac is directly south of and adjacent to the Borsko Jezero license and north of Savinac license (see Company's press release dated November 29, 2012).
The additions of the Osnic and Sumrakovac licenses brings Mundoro's total number of exploration licenses on the Timok Magmatic Complex (TMC) to eleven (11) which is approximately 917 sq. km. First pass exploration in the new areas will continue with data compilation, mapping, rock sampling of known occurrences followed up with soil sampling surveys. Stream sediment sampling programs will be planned and executed over all newly granted license areas.
Teo Dechev, CEO and President of Mundoro, commented, "Mundoro has successfully built its presence on the southern portion of the Timok Magmatic Complex with the addition of these two exploration licenses. We are also pleased to provide an update on the progress made to date in both the geophysics and sampling programs on the licenses granted to Mundoro earlier this year."
Borsko Jezero and Topla (Timok Licenses)
Mundoro has been carrying out reconnaissance and detailed Audio-Frequency Magneto-Telluric (AMT) geophysical surveys over both areas. The initial regional scale survey has been completed over Borsko Jezero where 113 stations spaced at 500 m have been measured. Preliminary analysis has picked up additional targets which will be followed-up using a denser AMT grid in Q1/13 as soon as weather conditions permit. The regional scale geophysical survey at Topla license will continue in Q1/13 as soon as weather conditions permit. The initial geophysical data for Borsko Jezero is now being processed and analyzed.
Detailed geological mapping, rock sampling and follow-up of stream sediment anomalies also have been completed over the two licenses. A total of 114 rock samples have been collected and sent for analysis.
Zeleznik and Glozana
The Company continued the soil sampling surveys at Zeleznik and Glozana. The first reconnaissance soil sample results at Glozana highlighted two areas anomalous in gold (Au) which require follow-up sampling to the north and south of the anomalous areas. Additional rock sampling has returned 4.65 ppm Au and 4.06 ppm Au from grab samples. The anomalous gold values are related to two types of mineralisation - quartz veins up to 1m wide with mezothermal (orogenic) features and massive quartz-pyrite.
At Zeleznik five areas have been selected for soil sampling surveys - three at northern and two at southern parts. The northern areas are highlighted with strong Au stream sediment anomalism. The southern Zeleznik area borders with the footprints of the huge Majdanpek Cu-Au porphyry system. Soil lines are projected over known alteration and mineralisation areas. Total of 374 samples are planned to be collected at the Zeleznik license.
Soil sampling at Osanica Bukovska license targeted two areas of known Au-Sb-W and Pb-Zn-Ag mineralisation. A total of 217 samples along eight profiles were collected and dispatched for analysis. The soil sampling survey at Osanica Bukovska will continue after the the heavy snow fall has cleared away.
Sampling and Analysis
The Company uses the SGS managed laboratories at Chelopech, Bulgaria and Bor Serbia to assay all samples from its Serbian properties. Soil and stream sediment samples are assayed in SGS Chelopech using a combination of ICP-OES and ICP-MS 4 acid digest, 49 elements; whereas gold is assayed by low level detection fire assay method 50g, AAS finish. Preparation of samples includes drying, screening to -80#, fine crushing, split and pulverizing to 75 µm. Rock samples are assayed in SGS Bor using ICP-MS 2 acid digest 52 elements; gold fire assay 50 g, AAS finish.
Stream sediment samples were collected from optimum trap sites for heavy minerals, wet or dry sieved ~2kg -1mm silt in the field. Samples were taken at regular intervals of ~1.5km along stream, designed to represent catchment areas of ~3-4km². Soil sampling was carried out along grid profiles oriented perpendicular to controlling structures of the mineralisation. Samples were collected at regular 50m intervals. Rock sampling was carried out as chip-channels in outcrops on 1 to 3m intervals collecting minimum 1kg material per meter.
In addition to laboratory's internal quality assurance quality control (QAQC) procedures the Company implements its own QAQC with systematic insertion into sample streams of certified reference materials, field duplicates and blanks. Field duplicate samples are taken every 25 samples and known standards and blanks are inserted after every 20th sample. All data collected in the field and assay results from the laboratories are routinely entered in an Access data base.
The technical information of this Press Release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. G. Magaranov, P.Geo., the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
