Vangold Mining Acquires Seven Mining Claims in Mexico

Vangold Mining Corp. is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiaries have entered into agreements to acquire seven mining claims, totalling 2,798 hectares, located in the States of Guanajuato and Queretaro, Mexico.

San Marco announces drilling has commenced at the Chunibas Project

The primary objectives of this drilling will be to confirm the presence of higher-grade mineralization within the discrete shear veins, as well as the presence of broad haloes of lower grade Au-Ag within adjacent, sericite – Fe carbonate altered wall rocks. Historical data has been incorporated with the Company’s recent exploration work, resulting in field evidence that the north-south trending shear/vein structures coalesce in various zones along strike. This has reinforced the geological model that wider zones of gold mineralization, flanking the high-grade shear structures, some of which continue to be mined by local gambosinos (miners), where grades appear to be in the 15 g/t gold range, exist.

Kootenay Silver Drills New Target Proximal to Existing Mineral Resource

Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states, “We are very pleased to commence drilling on the newly discovered eastern portion of the Las Venadas Zone. The new zone is contained within a strikingly similar geological setting to the Las Carolinas, San Gregorio and La Borracha Zones of silver mineralization situated to the north. All indications from ground exploration and sampling to date make this region of the property a top priority as we continue to ramp up our drill and resource expansion program at La Cigarra.”

Mexican Gold Samples High-Grade Gold and Silver Mineralization at its Pueblo Nuevo Concession

Brian Robertson, President and CEO stated, “We are excited about these high- grade sample results. The high-grade, gold bearing veins on the Pueblo Nuevo concession occur along the same sill contact and are believed to be part of the same metallogenic system as the better-known Au-Cu skarn deposits a few kilometres away at Las Minas proper. We look forward to carrying out further sampling and drilling at this highly mineralized site.”
