Recent Drilling on the Carolay Vein Confirms Lateral Extensions

TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM) (BVL: SSM) Sunset Cove Mining Inc. ("Sunset Cove", or the "Company") is pleased to announce results of the recent exploration surveys and diamond drill program completed on the Carolay Silver Polymetallic Property.

Drill hole CA-11-01 was oriented and projected to cross the vein under the adit of the Carolay vein and was projected to cut the vein at 140 meters. Before it reached the projected depth, it cut into considerable mineralized structures at 73m (21.3 gr/T Ag), 97m (26.7 gr/T Ag), 119m (12.9 gr/T Ag) and from 132 meters up to 142m of drilling with average values of Silver of 3.05gr/T and 0.23% Zinc. It succeeded in penetrating the vein up to 170m of drilling where it had to be suspended due to the strong fracturing and rock alteration.

The direction of the second drill hole, CA-11-02 was to cut the vein at 170m. It hit considerable mineralization from 70.95m up to 167.8m of drilling with average values of 1.8gr/T Silver and of 0.28% Zinc. This hole did not reach the planned depth due to the strong complexity of the rock alteration, fracturing and faults that prevented cutting and penetrating the vein.

"We are happy to see the recent drilling and surface sampling confirm the possible presence of the Carolay vein structure over 1.2km from the NW to the SE," said Lorne Woods, President and CEO of Sunset Cove Mining.

The core from both holes was hosted within dark color quartzite. In places the rock is fractured and oxydized with local argillic alteration. The mineralization mainly consists of iron and manganese oxides, pyrite and arsenopyrite sulphide veinlets and dissemination with local presence of galena and sphalerite.

The third drill, CA-11-03 was projected to cut the vein at 250 meters but due to the strong complexity of the rock alteration, fracturing and faults, the drilling and part of the bar column was lost, thus stopping drilling at 50 meter.

The Induced Polarization Survey (IP Survey) that covered the property has clearly identified the presence of conducting rates of high chargeability and low resistivity on the Carolay Silver Polymetallic Property. One of these axes coincides and corresponds with the Carolay Vein (Ag, Cu, Zn, Pb).

Additionally recent surface channel sampling has helped identify the continuity of the Carolay vein that is outcropping to the NE. With assay results varying between 0.2 and 134.5 gr/T silver (Ag); 0.001 and 0.679% lead (Pb); 0.001 and 0.962% zinc (Zn) and values of copper (Cu) ≤ 0.123.

"During surface exploration, mineralized structures have been identified below the drilling platform where drilling was carried out in December 2010 and January 2011. The analysis of these surface samples will be ready shortly," said Bratzon Salvador, Operations Manager for Sunset Cove. "This could prove the continuity of more structures similar to the Carolay vein and may prove our belief that there is mineralization in the high chargeability and low resistivity interception areas shown on the accompanying map."
