Global Updates Regional Exploration

VANCOUVER, Nov. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Global Minerals Ltd. (TSXV: CTG) ("Global or the Company") is pleased to provide this update on regional exploration activities surrounding its 100%-owned Strieborná silver/copper deposit in Roznava Slovakia.

The Company controls approximately 135 square kilometers of exploration concessions surrounding the mining concessions of the Strieborná project area. A compilation of regional information led the Company to focus follow-up exploration in two areas known as Cucma and Paca. The historic Cucma gold/antimony district is approximately 3.5 km north of the Strieborná deposit. Paca, 1.5 km southeast of Strieborná represents a possible buried vein system similar to Strieborná.


The Cucma district is an historic district which has been mined for antimony in the post-WWII era. All mines are now shut-down and abandoned. Prospecting has been in a 4 kilometer-long vein system. Rock samples, mostly from old dumps, have identified high grade gold and antimony for at least 3 of the 4 kilometers of the system. Some selected samples included:

*Sample locations and results can be viewed in the following map and table (pg. 4-6)

Global has completed geochemical sampling, Hg spectrometry, and resistivity surveys over much of the Cucma area. The region is heavily vegetated and therefore outcrops are generally not available for sampling. Caved adits, shafts, and dumps clearly indicate the prior activity however. The Company continues to evaluate data and will identify drill targets for next year


Geochemical and geophysical prospecting has also identified a possible buried vein system located 1.5 kms southeast of the Strieborná vein.  Mercury (Hg) anomalies, similar to those found at Strieborná, have been identified at Paca. This, together with positive results from geophysical surveys (IP and resistivity) indicates the possible vein type mineralization.  Additional geophysical surveys are currently being completed and a thorough evaluation of this newly discovered zone will be completed in the next few months.  The company also plans to drill these targets next year.

Field work is near completion for this season and Global will continue evaluating the results in order to further define potential drill targets in preparation for the 2012 work plan.

About Strieborná

Strieborná is a high-grade silver-copper-antimony vein type deposit in an historic mining district near the town of Roznava in eastern Slovakia.  The current NI 43-101 resource occurs within a mineralized structure 1.2 km long, 600 m deep and an average thickness of 3.4 m.  The resource has been defined by diamond drilling and a series of four horizontal underground drifts totaling 3,000 m.  The mineralization is open in various directions along the vein structure.  Other similar structures have been identified within the mining and exploration leases and will be the focus of future exploration drill programs.

In addition to the upside of the exploration potential and the high-grade nature of the polymetallic mineralization, the project has excellent infrastructure, including sufficient electrical power, railway access, paved highways and a local work force experienced with underground operations. 

Global Minerals Ltd. is a Canadian exploration and development company focused on developing its high-grade silver, copper, antimony deposit in Slovakia.  Global is 32% owned by Esperanza Resources Corp. (EPZ.V) whose principals are now involved in supervising the technical programs and future development.

QUALIFIED PERSON: William Bond, M.Sc., Geol. and VP Exploration for Global is the Qualified Person (QP) under NI 43-101 responsible for the Strieborná exploration program. He has verified the drill results and other data disclosed in this news release, including sampling, analytical and test data. Field work has been conducted under his supervision.  All samples were submitted to ALS Chemex laboratories for analysis in Rosia Montana, Romania and Vancouver, Canada.  Gold samples were analyzed by fire assay and atomic absorption spectroscopy with a 30 gram nominal sample weight. Initial Silver values were determined by fire assay with a 30 gram nominal sample weight and gravimetric finish.  Over range Silver, Copper, and Zinc is analyzed by induction coupled plasma - atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES) using four acid digestion methods.  Over range Antimony is analyzed by fusion XRF.
