    VANCOUVER, June 12 /CNW/ - Mexivada Mining Corp. is pleased to report
that it has staked two new exploration concessions, the "AuroTellurio
property" near Moctezuma, Sonora, Mexico. The La Viuda and La Viuda 1
concessions total 7,697 hectares in size, around the La Bambolla
tellurium-gold mine, which is now under construction by a European mining
company. Mexivada's concessions cover the possible eastern extension of the La
Bambolla vein systems, and control the La Viuda fault-vein system outcrop
zone. Penoles also controls a concession around the mine and around La Viuda.
    Bambolla geologists on site reported encountering very high tellurium
("Te") values to 4 Kg/ton Te, and a report in the Sonora Geological-Mining
Monograph by the Consejo de Recursos Minerales ("CRM") described the La
Bambolla vein system as a 2 metre thick quartz-pyrite-hematite-gold system
that contained 4.0 g/ton gold and 5 g/ton silver values. The mine dumps also
contain visible native tellurium as well as tellurite and sonoraite, which are
secondary tellurium minerals. The Moctezuma area also contains significant
zinc-lead-silver deposits, such as the Oposura Mine, where the CRM reported a
drill-indicated resource estimated at 800,000 tons at a grade of 6.04% zinc,
3.5% lead, and 19 g/ton silver. Mexivada plans to design an exploration
program to evaluate its land holdings at AuroTellurio.
