VANCOUVER, April 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Darwin Resources Corp ("Darwin" or the "Company") ( TSXV:DAR) (OTCPK:DARWF) (Frankfurt: DWU): The Company is pleased to announce that it has acquired , via staking, a 50% interest in three mining claim applications in the Department of Ayacucho, Peru. Darwin will form a joint venture with its staking partner and the joint venture will be known as the Parihuana project.
The properties were staked simultaneously after the area became available on January 2, 2013. As there were no other competitors on the majority of the staked area and rather than compete at an auction, the Company and its staking partner agreed to collaborate in a 50:50 joint venture. A management committee will be formed, and will approve work programs and budgets.
The Parihuana project is located in the Province of Parinacochas, Department of Ayacucho. The project consists of 1,500 hectares and is prospective for gold - copper skarn, porphyry and vein style mineralization. A number of artisanal gold and copper mines are known in the general region. Reconnaissance mapping and sampling of the properties is underway.
The qualified person, Dr Graham Carman, Darwin's President and CEO, and a Fellow of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, has reviewed and verified the contents of this release.
