Sunset Cove Initial Drilling Hits Mineralization Close to Surface

MONTREAL, Jan. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX-V: SSM): Mr. Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove Mining is pleased to announce that the first two drill holes have been completed on their silver-polymetallic Carolay property in the province of La Libertad in Peru.

A visual review of the drill core at the property showed both drill holes intersected unexpected sulfide mineralization close to the surface. These intervals began at 43m for CA-10-01 and at 27m for drill hole CA-10-03.

Drilling has been temporarily suspended in order to evaluate mineralized intercepts in the core within the context of the property geology and to re-orient the drill program to test the continuity of this sulfide mineralization.   Drilling will resume later in Q1 when the results have been compiled.

The results of the first phase of the drill program lead us to believe more fully that a disseminated silver-polymetallic deposit can be found on the Carolay property," said Woods.

These diamond drill holes targeted a large chargeability anomaly that was defined by a ground IP and magnetic survey conducted during Q2 and Q3 of 2010 and reported in the news release dated November 29th, 2010.   

The objective of the first hole, CA-10-01, drilled at azimuth 335o to a depth of 392 meters at -75o, was to intersect a sector of the chargeability anomaly that lies between the 150m-long surface outcrop of the NW-trending Carolay Vein and a sulfide-rich breccia that was found in outcrop 625 meters to the east of the vein. 

The second hole, CA-10-03, was drilled at an azimuth of 245o to a depth of 302 meters at -75o to intersect the down-dip extension of the Carolay Vein and to test the western portion of the large chargeability anomaly. 

The drill core is currently being logged in detail by Sunset Cove's technical team. Assay results will be released as soon as they are available.
