Diamond Drill core results MWN 09-05 Navojoa Project

WMR-TSX.V

VANCOUVER, Sept. 24 /CNW/ - During the Navojoa Project's Phase One drilling program, one Diamond Drill Hole was attempted at the Fafy-Yori target along with fourteen completed R.C. holes that were reported in Press Release( No.WMR 09-09), September 04, 2009.

The R.C. drilling results (No.WMR 09-09) contains several intersections with anomalous mineralization up to 205.7 meters in length. These anomalous copper and silver results are interpreted to be indicative of the outer halo portions of a precious metal bearing porphyry copper deposit system. The Diamond Drill Core results reported in the table below for the core hole further support this interpretation. Difficulties with the core rig lead to abandoning the hole in mineralization at a vertical depth of about 21 meters.

Analytical results for MWN 09-05 are encouraging and provide confirmation of leaching of the primary sulphide mineralization in the upper portion of the hole where S% and Cu% are depleted. The copper and silver content within the pyrrhotite - pyrite sulphide-marble-calc silicate skarn horizon varies with the degree of leaching, with the deepest mineralization reporting the highest values. The final 0.35 meters of the hole graded 0.76% copper and over limit (greater than 10g/t) silver before the hole was stopped. Discovery of weathered limonite outcropping mineralization during regional Phase One prospecting led to selection of this site for diamond drill core testing. Other similar limonitic replacement of sulphides in outcrop exposures at the Yori target have since been discovered but IP geophysical surveying of these areas has not yet been completed.

Drill core was placed in core boxes and logged at the property where it was picked up by Sonora Sample Preparation (SSP) staff and delivered to their facility in Hermosillo, Mexico. SSP shipped the core boxes by courier to ACME Laboratories in Vancouver where the drill core was sawn in half, length wise, at Pothier Enterprises Ltd., by Andrew Pothier. For each sample, half of the core from one meter intervals was placed in numbered, sealed, plastic bags and delivered to ACME Labs for analysis by ICP - MS method IF05 after crush, split and pulverizing of the core was completed using method R200. Blanks, duplicates and control reference standards were inserted into the sample stream by the certified laboratory.
