VANCOUVER, Oct. 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Darwin Resources Corp ("Darwin" or "The Company") (TSXV: DAR) (OTCPK: DARWF): Dr. Graham Carman, President & CEO, reports that the Company has doubled its key land holding via acquisition at the Suriloma gold-silver property in Northern Peru. Darwin now controls 100% of a large continuous land package where numerous gold and silver bearing structures have been discovered and traced over a 6km strike length. Suriloma is a new discovery that has never been drilled.
Dr Graham Carman states: "At this early stage, Suriloma is establishing itself as a large epithermal gold-silver discovery, where our team has located multiple intermediate-sulphidation vein structures and mapped them over at least 6km of strike. Positive exploration results encouraged us to consolidate the Suriloma project via these new acquisitions, so providing rights to a 100% interest in a land package that covers approximately 8km by 3km of prospective mineral claims. No drilling has ever taken place at Suriloma, and we look forward to receiving further surface sampling results and advancing the property to first stage drilling in Q1 2013."
Darwin has already identified a number of prospective areas on the new
properties and an intensive exploration program is ongoing. A detailed surface sampling program is planned at La Puerta to test the continuity and grade of stockwork mineralization in discontinuous outcrops along a strike length of 700 metres. Within the Bosque area, the largest zone of outcrop on the La Puerta structure, recent channel sampling of epithermal quartz veinlets or "stockwork" reported by Darwin on July 09, 2012 ranged from 0.01 g/t gold to 7.59 g/t gold and averaged 1.5 g/t gold and 13 g/t silver over 60m in semi-continuous outcrops. Individual vein samples grade up to 10 g/t gold, 870 g/t silver and 12 % antimony.
