Sunset Cove Starts Phase Two Drilling on Peruvian Silver Property

MONTREAL, May 24, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSXV: SSM): Mr. Lorne Woods, President of Sunset Cove Mining is pleased to announce that Phase Two of its diamond drilling (DDH) campaign on its silver-polymetallic property located in La Libertad, Peru, will start by the end of May.  Explo Drilling Peru SRL has mobilized a drill rig to the property.

The plan for Phase Two is to complete the 6,000 meters of DDH drilling as announced on Dec 16, 2010.  The program will use a small, portable drill (NQ core) that is more suitable for the steep terrain close to the adit of the Carolay Vein.  The focus of the drilling will be to test along strike extensions of the structure hosting the Carolay Vein as defined by recent geological field investigation.  As stated in the Company's news release of March 17, 2011, time was taken to re-evaluate the original drill plan in light of results from the first two drill holes completed in February of this year.

Mr. Woods says, "We are looking forward to this drilling program. It will allow us to have a better understanding of how the Carolay Vein structure that sampled over 6 ounces of silver in 2010 relates to the Manto Outcrop that shows good silver results along this open-ended structure."

Recent rock chip sample results from underground workings and surface outcrop show strong silver mineralization on the Carolay Vein (average grade of 122 g/t Ag over widths ranging from 0.4 to 2.1 meters along its 235-meter length), and from the Manto Outcrop (21m @ 21.7 g/t Ag, not true width).  With the results from the underground and surface sampling completed to date and full analysis of the IP geophysical survey, the technical team has a better concept of the mineralization model on the Carolay property.

The Carolay Vein fills a major structure that generally follows the foliation direction in the host meta-sediments with an apparent strike length of over 1,500m.  The structure is defined by a strong chargeability anomaly that extends >800 meters NW of the Carolay Vein adit and continues to the southeast and east >700m where the structure appears to flatten out near the mineralized Manto Outcrop as reflected by a broad chargeability anomaly (see attached map).   The Phase Two drilling will target this structure and test for the presence of mineralization in parallel structures.

Pyritic horizons in the meta-sediments may be responsible in part for the broad chargeability (IP) anomaly; although this IP anomaly may also reflect polymetallic mineralization associated with the Carolay Vein along mantos within permeable fracture zones in the meta-sediments.
