Candorado Operating Company Ltd. Drills 38 Meters of 0.23% Copper and 0.41g/t Gold and 32 Meters of 0.52g/t Gold At Man/Prime Property


    KELOWNA, BC, June 29 /CNW Telbec/ - Candorado Operating Company Ltd. (the
"Company") (TSX VENTURE: "CDO" FRANKFURT/BERLIN: "HQU") is pleased to report
assay results from the first hole of the Phase I 2007 drill program on the
Man/Prime property near Princeton, British Columbia. Hole 694-001, at grid
location 9300N 10300E, was drilled vertically to a depth of 280 meters. A 7th
hole of the drill program is currently being completed and results will be
released when available.
    A 38.0-metre intersection, from 50.1 to 88.1 m, assayed 0.23% copper and
0.41 grams per ton gold. Based on $US 3.00/pound for copper and $US 20.00/gram
for gold, this equates to 0.36% equivalent copper (eCu). Within this interval,
a 14.0-meter section from 62.1 to 76.1 m assayed 0.51% Cu and 0.39 g/t Au,
with an eCu value of 0.63%. The 38-m intersection is within an 85-m section of
anomalous copper values.
    From 162.1 to 194.1 m, a 32.0-metre intersection assayed 0.52 g/t gold.
Anomalous copper values are associated with this gold zone.
    All drilling on the properties being conducted by Frontier Drilling Corp.
