Camino Minerals Corporation (TSX-V:COR) is pleased to report results for eight diamond drill holes completed on the Adriana Zone at its Los Chapitos Project located in southern Peru.
Select drill highlights for the Adriana Zone include:
Drill holes DCH-024 and DCH-034 were approximately 100 meter step out holes to the southeast and northwest respectively from hole DCH-012, which intersected 0.93% copper over 96.5 meters, including 2.03% copper over 19.5 meters and 5.01% copper over 4.5 meters. The most recent drilling continues to add to our understanding of the structural and lithological controls of the copper mineralization at Chapitos. The current interpretation suggests the block of very high-grade mineralization formed at the intersection of the feeder structure and a bed of brecciated volcaniclastic. This high-grade mineralization remains open along strike in both directions.
Drilling elsewhere on the Adriana Zone continues to confirm the earlier results and extends the mineralization. Holes DCH-028 and DCH-030 confirmed that the mineralization below the discovery outcrop extends to depth and is dipping steeply to the west. Holes DCH-026, DCH-029, and DCH-031, along with hole DCH-024 (all drilled on the Section 205 from Pad-2A), have expanded the zone of bulk tonnage style mineralization, within which is hosted zones of higher grade mineralization. The drilling to date is beginning to outline a substantial body of copper mineralization that currently measures over 400 meters by 150 meters which is open at depth and in both directions along trend.
Work continues on the project with step out drilling underway at the Katty Zone and additional drilling being planned for the Adriana Zone. The Company also expects to receive authorization in October to initiate field activities at the Atajo Zone located on a separate trend six kilometers to the southwest of the Adriana Zone. The Company recently received approval of its environmental assessment and negotiated a community access agreement as part of the permit application for drilling at the Atajo Zone.
Kenneth C. McNaughton, M.A.Sc., P.Eng., is the Qualified Person (QP) responsible for the Chapitos project.

|(2)||All samples were submitted for preparation and analysis by ALS Chemex at its facilities in Lima, Peru. All samples were analyzed using multi-digestion with ICP finish and fire assay with AA finish for gold. Samples over 1% copper were reanalyzed using four acid digestion with an ore grade ICP finish. Mineralized samples were analyzed for acid soluble copper by being agitated at room temperature in a 5% sulphuric acid solution with the copper content measured by AA. One in 20 samples was blank, one in 20 was a standard sample, and one in 20 samples had a sample cut from assay rejects assayed as a field duplicate at ALS Chemex in Lima, Peru.|
