The Suriloma project 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 previously reported very encouraging channel sampling results from the La Puerta area (see news release December 14, 2012, and January 10, 2013) from outcropping oxide mineralization. Darwin’s channel sampling highlighted a quartz stockwork zone covering
1,300 metres open-ended and up to 100m wide within two sub-parallel zones. Channel sampling included 16 metres @ 2.12 grams per tonne (g/t) gold from Zone A, and 29 metres @ 1.60 g/t gold from Zone B.
