Canasil Receives Drill Permits for Sandra-Escobar and Salamandra Projects and Expands Sandra-Escobar Claim Area in Durango State, Mexico

Canasil Resources Inc. announces that the Company has received comprehensive drill permits for the Salamandra silver-copper-zinc-lead and Sandra-Escobar silver-gold projects in Durango State, Mexico. Since the introduction of new environmental and land use regulations in Mexico in 2012 with respect to drill permits, the process for approving drill permits requires longer lead times. As a result Canasil has systematically applied for drill permits for its drill ready projects in Mexico to avoid any delays with the implementation of any planned drill programs. The Company is pleased to have received comprehensive drill permits for both projects within a relatively short lead time following filing of the applications. Each of the permits provides for multiple drill holes from 25 drill locations with provisions for building drill access roads etc. with a validity of two years, which may be extended if necessary. This will provide significant flexibility in planning appropriate drill programs to test these high potential projects.

Kimber Resources Inc. today announced results from its underground rehabilitation and sampling program within the historic Carmen Level 1, underground workings of the Carmen deposit at the 100% owned Monterde gold-silver project in Chihuahua, Mexico. Level 1 is the middle and most extensive of three levels developed on the Carmen deposit. Assay results from Level 1 at Carmen show significant strike lengths of high grade gold and silver mineralization remaining on the vein structure that were not removed by mining in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The continuity of these high grade zones, over significant strike lengths, supports the potential for similar continuity of high grade zones intersected in other areas of the Carmen deposit.
