Bellhaven expands the La Garrucha discovery at the La Mina Project, Colombia

Monday, Mar 04, 2013

Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BHV) ("Bellhaven" or the "Company") is pleased to report drill results from four recent holes at the La Mina Project in Colombia (Figures 1 and 4). The two most recent holes test the western edges of the La Garrucha porphyry. Drill hole LME-1096 at La Garrucha returned an impressive run of consistent gold-copper mineralization for over half of its 350-meter length.

The current program adds much needed information about the geology and grade distribution at La Garrucha, where a 2011-2012 drill program discovered a gold-copper porphyry deposit similar in style to that of La Cantera and Middle Zone. These first holes at La Garrucha collar in an outer unit of marginally mineralized intrusive rock, but two of these holes bottom in +1 g/t Au mineralization. Bellhaven geologists believe this to be a strong indication that the east-directed drilling is just entering the core of a strong mineralizing system.

The two other holes in this news release probe the area between La Cantera and Middle Zone resources (the 'LC-MZ Gap'), where magnetic and IP surveys suggest a possible magnetic intrusive at depth. One of these holes intercepts an intrusive similar to the units encountered at La Cantera, though gold and copper mineralization was relatively low. For maps showing the location of the drill holes, as well as relevant geologic cross sections highlighting the gold-copper intercepts, please use the following link:
