Navojoa gold-copper porphyry project update


    VANCOUVER, Sept. 4 /CNW/ - The Company reports that it has now received
and compiled exploration results from the portion of the program completed
prior to the onset of the rainy season.
    Phase I efforts concentrated on a small part of one of three potential
porphyry centers with gold-copper skarn and granite-hosted mineralization
contained within the 18,175 hectare property. At the central Fafy-Yori target,
an IP geophysical survey expanded a previously identified, strong
chargeability anomaly which continues to be open in all directions, and now
covers an area 2 1/2 kilometers by 3 kilometers. Fourteen Reverse Circulation
drill holes totaling approximately 3,000 meters of drilling were centered on
an area of approximately 800 meters in diameter and were restricted to drill
locations adjacent to existing roads that were accessible and not affected by
flooding. Management is pleased to report that initial drill results have
intersected the outer shell of the large Fafy-Yori porphyry system. All holes
returned anomalous silver and copper + zinc and molybdenum content within
broad intervals of alteration and disseminated pyrite. Within the halo, silver
content ranged to 20.4 g/t over 1.5 meters and copper to 0.54% over 4.5 meters
with the broadest intercept being 205.7 meters of 0.35 g/t silver and 0.03%
    Phase I exploration also included regional prospecting and geological
mapping which discovered new mineralized areas. Highlights include outlining a
mineralized skarn over 1 1/2 kilometers of strike length at La Kala, the
northern most porphyry target. Outside of the three main porphyry target
areas, grab samples from newly discovered mineralization assayed gold ranging
to 1.1 g/t and silver ranging to 54.3 g/t. These results prompted the staking
of an addition mineral concession of 3,330 hectares by the Company.
    Approximately 90% of the Yori-Fafy IP target lies under young volcanic
cover and remains undrilled. The expanded IP survey grid area was also covered
by a Soil Gas Hydrocarbon (SGH) survey interpreted by Activation Laboratories
Ltd., Ancaster, Ontario to have three separate high priority gold anomalous
targets. These two methods in combination with the drill results will guide
Phase II drilling in the volcanic covered areas. The exploration program is
scheduled to resume in October 2009 and will include diamond core drilling and
further IP and SGH surveys and geological mapping.
    Bruce Ballantyne, Project Manager stated, "We are making great progress
in uncovering the district-scale porphyry potential on the Property. The broad
intersections of mineralization and alteration encountered in these shallow
R.C. holes are consistent with halos found in large, classic porphyry deposits
    The program was conducted by geotechnical staff of Minconsult Exploration
Services Ltd., Vernon, British Columbia and supervised by P.Geos., Stuart
Fraser and Chris Gallagher and professional Mexican geologist Rafael Gallardo.
In compliance with NI 43-101 all rock and RC drill samples were collected at
the drill site by Sonora Samples Preparations (SSP) S.A. de C.V., and securely
delivered to their preparation facility in Hermosillo, Sonora, where they were
crushed and ground according to the ACME Laboratories protocol R150. After
splitting the pulp, SSP shipped approximately 150 grams per sample via
International Courier to ACME Analytical Laboratories Ltd., Vancouver, B.C. A
15 gram subsample from each pulp was analyzed by a 58 element wet geochemical
ultratrace ICP-MS procedure (ACME Code IF05). Analytical and replicate samples
were inserted into the sample stream by the Company and the laboratory to
provide quality assurance. The sample intervals for the RC drilling were 1.52
meters and two bags of material weighing approximately 15 kilograms each were
saved after sample splitting. One bag was collected by SSP at the drill site
and the second bag is held in the Company's secure storage facility in
Navajoa. SSP also shipped the soil samples to Activation Laboratories,
Ancaster, Ontario where they were prepared and analyzed using Soil Gas
Hydrocarbon protocols. The interpretation of the SGH results was presented to
the Company by Actlabs in work order report A09-4040, August 26, 2009.
    The foregoing disclosure has been reviewed and verified by director Glen
C. Macdonald, P.Geo. a qualified person for the purpose of National Instrument
