MONTREAL, Jan. 5 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX-V: SSM): Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove Mining is proud to announce that diamond drilling has commenced on its Silver Polymetallic Carolay Property in the province of La Libertad in Peru. As reported in the news release of December 16th, 2010 Explo Drilling reached the Carolay property on the 17th of December.

Explo Drilling collared the first drill hole on December 18th from the first of five drill pads selected by the company (please see photos and the map on our website www.sunsetcovemining.com).

"We are very happy to begin this program," said Lorne Woods, President and CEO of Sunset Cove Mining. "It will help us to better define the structures of the Carolay Vein and allows us to refine future drilling and exploration in 2011."

Drill hole CA-10-01, is being drilled to the north and will be approximately 800 meters in length, into the Carolay 2 Vein. Drill hole CA-10-02 will be drilled in a westerly direction for approximately 300 meters. Both holes will intersect anomalous conductive axis no. 2 detected in recent I.P. work performed during the summer of 2010. This chargeability anomaly is located to the southeast of the Carolay vein. And has been described as having the strongest chargeability anomaly of the current survey. It extends over 600 meters in width and remains open at the southeast end.

Drilling stopped for a Christmas break and was re-started on Dec. 29 and it is expected the first two holes will be completed by the end of January. Assay results are expected shortly after.

Sunset Cove also wishes to announce that Alain Blais, P Geo, has left the company. We wish him well in his future endeavors and thank him for his work with the company.
