Darwin Channel results highlight the gold potential at Suriloma, Peru
Thursday, Nov 15, 2012VANCOUVER, Nov. 14, 2012 /CNW/ - Darwin Resources Corp ("Darwin" or "The Company") (TSXV:DAR) (OTCPK:DARWF): Dr. Graham Carman, President & CEO, is pleased to provide an update on the Company's Suriloma gold project in the Department of La Libertad Peru, including promising new gold and silver results from two continuous 80 metre long channels.
Dr Graham Carman states: "La Puerta is proving to be a substantial epithermal structure hosting at least two sub-parallel zones each up to 25 metres wide, that we have mapped for 1km of strike. The quartz stockwork mineralization is fully oxidised at surface and offers the potential for a moderate to large tonnage deposit. In addition, the opportunity exists for narrower zones of bonanza grade gold - silver to be developed as veins within the mineralized stockwork. The Darwin team are excited by the surface results so far, and we look forward to advancing the property to first stage drilling. We are aiming for drill permits to be in place Q1 2013."
Surface rights at La Puerta are owned by individual farmers holding small land parcels. Negotiations are continuing with several landholders in order to more fully sample the subcropping epithermal structures, and for the construction of drill platforms.
Elsewhere, the Company is exploring other areas of the 2,400 hectares of mineral concessions at Suriloma. Already at least 5 other gold-silver mineralized structures have been identified apart from La Puerta. Results of surface sampling of veins at the Edelmira and Santa Felicita areas are expected later in Q4 2012.
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 contents of this release. Channels were dug to a depth of up to 30cm depth across continuous subcropping zones covered by thin soils using a pick and chisel. Each continuous channel sample was typically 2 metres in length. Samples were analyzed by Certimin in Lima for gold using a 50g fire assay with an atomic absorption finish (method G0107), and for silver and other trace elements by ICP using an aqua regia digestion (method G0146). Significant results are plotted in Figure 1. Recent results are summarised in Table 1.
