Darwin Commences Stage Two Diamond Drilling at Suriloma, Peru
December 5, 2013 (Source: Marketwired) — Darwin Resources Corp. (“Darwin” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:DAR)(PINKSHEETS:DARWF)(FRANKFURT:DWU): Dr Graham Carman, President & CEO, is pleased to announce that the Company has commenced its second stage drill program at the Suriloma gold-silver project, Department of La Libertad, Peru. A two-hole, 800 metre diamond drill program is planned to test large-scale IP geophysical targets at the La Puerta area. These targets lie beneath outcropping gold-silver epithermal vein mineralization that was partially drill tested by shallow drilling during 2013 (see Darwin Press Release August 19 2013).
It is interpreted that the chargeability anomalies reflect sulphide altered rock, possibly associated with disseminated gold-silver mineralization at depth beneath the shallow intermediate-sulphidation epithermal veins. The holes are expected to be drilled to a maximum depth of 400 metres. The drill program is expected to take approximately 4 weeks with a single rig operating, with results expected by the end of January 2014.
Dr Graham Carman, President and CEO, states: “Following the closing of our recent capital raising, we have acted decisively to mobilize a drill rig to site and we look forward to testing these exciting geophysical targets, which are interpreted to be the sulphidic core to the gold-bearing high-level epithermal veins drilled earlier in 2013.”
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.
