About the Company

Pacific Cascade Minerals Inc. (tsx.v:PCV) is a junior resource exploration company focused on opportunities both domestic and international. The Company has signed an agreement with Arcelia Gold Corp., a private company, to earn a 70% interest in a 9,846-hectare property, the “El Centenario” in the state of Durango, Mexico. Exploration on the El Centenario Project began in 2011 with the Company having expended the first year commitment of $1,000,000. Pacific Cascade Minerals also currently holds two molybdenum exploration properties in British Columbia, Canada.

About the Project

The El Centenario project is situated 15km southwest of the La Cienega mine (owned by Fresnillo PLC) a structurally controlled gold-silver-lead-zinc mineral deposit that has been in production since early? 1999. To date, the La Cienega mine has produced more than 2M oz of gold and 50M oz of silver. Additionally, the world-class Metates deposit (27m oz gold equivalent owned by chesapeake gold corporation (tsx-v:CKG) is located 10 km south-southeast of the El Centenario project. The project area encloses a historical, little-explored mining district that was active during the Spanish colonial times. The concession block

contains dozens of mineral prospects and an abundance of small-scale mine workings. The style of mineralization varies from epithermal, low sulfidation, fracture-filling vein-stock-work breccia systems to skarn and sediment-hosted enriched disseminated zones. The Company has recently completed a Phase 1 diamond drill program on the La Esperanza silver zone consisting of 12 holes as well as surface sampling and trenching. The Company is currently preparing plans to mobilize surface sampling and diamond drilling on the Santa Margarita gold zone located approximately 2 kilometers east of the La Esperanza zone.
