Altamira Reports Trenching Results of 29m @ 3.03 g/t Gold at Baldo East Target, Cajueiro Proeject, Brazil and Extends Structures






Altamira Gold Corp. (TSX-V: ALTA) (FSE: T6UP) (USA: EQTRF), is pleased to report that it continues to extend the strike extent of high grade mineralized structures through its recent trenching program at the Baldo East target area at the Cajueiro project located in western Brazil. Highlights are as follows;




Recent trenching has now excavated at least two continuous high-grade mineralized structures in the Baldo East area – the northern most of these two structures is now referred to as Baldo East 1, whilst the zone immediately south of this is referred to as Baldo East 2:



·        Trench TCBL-29 was excavated on the Baldo East 1 zone, 200m east of trench TCBL-19 which returned 9m @ 1.84g/t gold plus 1m @ 13.33g/t gold. Results from trench TCBL-29 include 10m @ 1.82g/t gold and 7m @ 1.79 g/t gold including 1m @ 7.23 g/t gold. Several other narrower mineralized sections were also noted. The Baldo East 1 zone now extends over approximately 900m and is still open along strike to the east



·        Trench TCBL-28 was developed on the more recently discovered Baldo East 2 zone, 200m east of trench TCBL-25 which cut three parallel brecciated zones and returned 7m @ 5.53 g/t, and 2m @ 8.30g/t.  Results from trench TCBL-28 include 29m @ 3.03 g/t gold including 7m @ 5.42 g/t gold and 4m @ 8.07 g/t gold. This structure has now been traced over 250m of strike and is open to both the east and west



Trenching at the Baldo East 1 zone, and specifically the completion of trench TCBL-29 has extended the Baldo East 1 zone an additional 200m to the east extending the total strike length to more than 900m. TCBL-29 was completed 200m east of trench TCBL-19 which returned 9m @ 1.84g/t + 1m @ 13.33g/t gold gold. Results from trench TCBL-29 include;




             10m @ 1.82g/t gold

            + 4m @ 1.07g/t  

            + 2m @ 1.98g/t

            + 2m @ 1.36g/t

            + 2m @ 1.64g/t

            + 7m @ 1.79g/t including 1m @ 7.23g/t gold




Work has continued on the Baldo East 2 zone, where previous trenching indicated the presence of parallel structures with one trench TCBL-25 exposing apparently parallel structures 250m (7m @ 5.53g/t gold) and 425m (2m @ 8.30g/t gold) south of the Baldo East 1 zone. Trench TCBL-28 was excavated approximately 220m to the east and returned 29m @ 3.03g/t gold including 7m @ 5.42g/t gold and 4m @ 8.07g/t gold. This zone is believed to be the eastward extension to the zone which returned 7m @ 5.53g/t gold in trench TCBL-25. Trench TCBL-28 did not extend south far enough to cut the zone which returned 2m @ 8.30g/t in TCBL-25.







Commenting on these results, Mike Bennett, President & CEO stated “We are very pleased with the recent trench and drill results from the Baldo East area, which have excavated at least two parallel high-grade structures which remain open along strike and at depth. We expect the Baldo East 1 and 2 zones will materially add to both the size and grade of the current resource at Cajuero”




The company follows industry standard procedures with a quality assurance/quality control program. 2 Blank, 2 duplicates and 2 standard samples were inserted in each batch of 40 samples.  Sample preparation and analysis was done at SGS GEOSOL in Vespasiano, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Analysis is performed by fire assay with 50g fusion and Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy.




Crepori Update and Regional Program




The Company also announces that it has now completed the program of seven diamond drill holes at the Crepori project and results are pending. As a result of significantly increased competitor activity in the Juruena Belt, the Company has initiated an exploration program for copper. The program initially consists of a geophysical and regional compilation study with further details to be provided once this work has been completed.
