VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jun 24, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — Guerrero Exploration Inc. (“Guerrero” or the “Company”) (tsx venture:GEX)(frankfurt:2GU) announces that the complete drill permit application, including the long form of the environmental report (Manifiesto de Impacto Ambiental), was submitted to the Ministry of the Environment (SEMARNAT) for its Cerro Azul Property in Guerrero, Mexico. The governmental authority confirmed receipt of the application and has indicated that all documents are in order and have initially been accepted, including the required newspaper publications of the Company’s and its JV Partner’s intentions to drill in the project area.
Guerrero’s environmental consultant on site has also indicated that a previously scheduled visit to the project area will no longer be required.
Based on the response from the Mexican Ministry officials, Guerrero Exploration expects the finalized permit will be granted on or about June 30, 2013.
The issuance of the drilling permit and environmental clearances will give Guerrero Exploration and its JV Partner the ability to immediately begin a planned exploration drilling program on the Cerro Azul Property without any further jurisdictional requirements or permits.
Located 30 kilometers west of Farallon Resources’ Campo Morado property and approximately 88 kilometers west of Goldcorp’s Los Filos Mine, Guerrero’s Cerro Azul property is located in a volcano sedimentary Cretaceus sequence of Guerrero Terrane complex. The Company is exploring the large concession and has defined more than seven target areas which include several epithermal gold targets and at least two porphyry copper-type hydrothermal systems.
