Camino Minerals Corporation (COR) announced the high solubility results from copper oxide intercepts in the Lourdes Zone at its Los Chapitos Property, Peru.

The near-surface copper oxide minerals in drill holes DCH-97 and DCH-80 had acid solubilities of 83 per cent and 79 per cent. Total solubilities in these holes were 92 per cent and 87 per cent. This confirmed the continuity of oxide mineralization to a depth of at least 100 metres in the new zone.

Jose Bassan, Chief Geologist for Camino, commented,

“The results of the geochemical analysis were consistent with mineralization described in drilling logs by Camino geologists… [the company will] continue exploring our Los Chapitos property for surface evidence along large structural faults that crosscut the property.”

Lourdes is one of several new zones identified to target additional drilling campaigns to expand known copper mineralization at Los Chapitos for a proposed copper oxide heap-leach mine.

Jay Chmelauskas, CEO of Camino, added,

“A copper oxide heap-leach mine is generally the easiest and most cost-effective method to start development of a copper project… As we permit new areas for drilling at Los Chapitos, we are finding more near-surface copper mineralization amenable to our development vision.”

The company also believes the project has the potential for large sulphide mineralized bodies as the second phase of its development strategy.

Camino Minerals Corporation (COR) is up 120 per cent, trading at $0.05 per share as of 3:29 p.m. EST.
