Vancouver, B.C. — May 27, 2015: San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSX-V) ("San Marco" or "the Company") recently completed a second 2015 sampling and mapping campaign on its Cuatro de Mayo Project in Sonora, Mexico, which resulted in the identification of two new exploration targets: Corral and Amariska.
The Corral target is a strong low sulphidation vein system that was traced for over 1.3 km along strike and over a width of approximately 400 m and is open along strike in both directions. The system consists of individual veins, which can reach over 2 m in width, and corridors of intense parallel vein stockwork. The Corral target is hosted in an upper volcanic sequence and, like the Oregano target, displays typical low sulphidation vein system textures such as bladed (lattice), massive, and banded quartz (see San Marco news release of May 6, 2015).
The Amariska target is a manto type gold target, approximately 10-30 m thick, presently identified over a strike length of roughly 500 m. This target dips at approximately 45 degrees to the northeast and is capped by the rhyolite tuff of the upper volcanic sequence.
In addition to identifying the Corral and Amariska targets during this latest field campaign, the Company also undertook additional mapping and follow-up rock and soil sampling at the Oregano, Chunibas, Valle and Tabacote targets and conducted regional exploration to continue the search for additional targets. 122 rock, 396 soil and 34 silt samples were collected and assay results are pending.

The technical information contained in this document has been verified, and this news release has been approved, by San Marco's CEO, Robert D. Willis, P. Eng. a "Qualified Person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects of the Canadian Securities Administrators.
Samples will be prepared for assay at Bureau Veritas Minerals (Acme/Inspectorate) Lab in Mexico and will be assayed at their facility in Vancouver, BC. Assaying protocols are as follows: A 15 gram split is analyzed for 36 elements using ICP-ES/MS method (AQ201). Sample results greater than 1000ppm Cu, Pb, Zn, Mo, Ag over 10ppm, and Sb, As, Hg over the detection limit are re-assayed, using hot multi-acid digestion using ICP-ES method (MA370). Samples that report Au >100ppb in AQ201 are analyzed by fire assay, AA finish (FA430) using a 30g sample. Overlimit Au from FA430 and/or Ag from 370 is automatically assayed (30g) via fire assay fusion and gravimetric finish (FA530). San Marco's sample collection, integrity, and quality control and assurance procedures are in line with industry best practices and comply with National Instrument 43-101 requirements.
