Sunset Cove Starts Drilling Campaign on Carolay Silver Property

TORONTO, Feb. 15, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM) (BVL: SSM) Sunset Cove announces that the first hole of its 2012 drilling program has started on its flagship Carolay Property in La Libertad, Peru. The drill program is designed to go up to 10,000 meters by the end of the year and help to establish the basis for a new NI 43-101 report.

"We have designed the first five holes to cross the Carolay Vein over a strike length of 250 meters," said Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove. "We also are looking forward to drilling through the recently discovered Carolay 1 Vein, which is sub-parallel and located 20 meters from the Carolay vein."

Each diamond drill hole, NQ size, is estimated for a minimum of 350 meters and will cross the known anomaly that measures over 200 meters and believed to host more vein structures that the company hopes are similar to Carolay vein.

Initial sampling of the Carolay Vein averaged over 269gr per tonne of silver and has been reported in Sunset's original technical report. The results of the first hole should be available shortly.
