Darwin Resources Corp (TSX VENTURE:DAR)(PINKSHEETS:DARWF)(FRANKFURT:DWU): announces that the Company has completed its initial diamond drill program at the Suriloma epithermal gold project, Department of La Libertad, Peru. Suriloma is located in a prolific gold belt in Peru, 30km along strike from Barrick’s Lagunas Norte mine and 50km from Rio Alto’s La Arena mine.
Darwin has completed 1,603 metres of diamond drilling in 11 holes, from 9 separate drill platforms. Progress by the two drill rigs working concurrently was better than expected, hence the program was completed earlier than planned and under budget. The objective of the drill program was to test beneath outcrops of oxide epithermal gold mineralization at the La Puerta and Inmaculada target areas. The average vertical depth of the holes drilled was approximately 120 metres.
Geological logging, cutting and sampling of the drill core is now in progress. Once cut, drill samples are being transported to a commercial laboratory in Lima for gold and pathfinder analyses.
Dr Graham Carman states: “A number of epithermal quartz vein structures and alteration zones have been intersected in our drilling at Suriloma. We now await assay results which we expect around the middle of August. I am pleased to say that our drilling was carried out quickly and efficiently, and we have received excellent cooperation and assistance from the local communities which has been very positive.”
The qualified person, Dr Graham Carman, Darwin’s President and CEO, and a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, has reviewed and verified the technical contents of this release.
