The Peñoles Project
The Company holds an option to purchase up to 65% interest in the Peñoles Project from Riverside Resources. The Peñoles Project includes two historic silver mines (Jesus Maria and San Rafael), an oxide gold prospect (referred to as El Capitan) and numerous exploration targets located in the historic Peñoles Mining District of Durango, Mexico. Approximately 86 diamond drill holes totaling more than 11,550 metres have now been completed at the Project. The Company recently announced (see the March 2, 2015 press release) a maiden resource estimate for the project:
Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate

The Jesus Maria and El Capitan mineralized zones have not been completely delineated. The Company is encouraged by the discovery of near surface, potentially economic grade mineralization and believes further drilling is warranted.
The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 (NI43-101) and reviewed and approved by Carl VonEinsiedel, P.Geo., Exploration Manager, Morro Bay Resources Ltd., and a Qualified Person.
Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These mineral resource estimates include inferred mineral resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied. The mineral resource estimates referenced in this press release use the term "Inferred Mineral Resources." While this term is defined by Canadian regulations (under NI 43-101), it is not recognized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). "Inferred Mineral Resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. The SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute SEC Industry Guide 7 compliant "reserves" as in-place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. Morro Bay is not SEC registered company.
