Drilling Begins at Evrim's Suaqui Verde Copper Project
|Vancouver, BC - September 7, 2011: Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V:EVM) ("Evrim" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that drill crews have mobilized to the Suaqui Verde copper project in Sonora, Mexico. Evrim's exploration funding partner, Inmet Mining Corporation, has planned to drill 12 holes totaling 4,700 metres. |
Paddy Nicol, President of Evrim stated, "The drill program at Suaqui Verde is the result of a series of geochemical, geological mapping, and geophysical studies that took place over the past seven months. We're excited to move forward with Evrim's first drill campaign."
Drilling at Suaqui Verde will focus on magnetic and ZTEM geophysical targets at the Adriana showing where surface mapping, sampling and historic drilling has defined an exposed copper -- molybdenum mineralized porphyry system characterized by alteration over a two by three kilometre area before being obscured by post mineral gravels and cover rocks within a fault bound basin. Historic drilling within the Adriana target area has only tested the outermost margins of the system, and above the core of the ZTEM target, returning moderate intervals of strongly anomalous copper +/- molybdenum +/- gold mineralization. Additional drilling will test targets beneath post mineral gravels and cover rocks within the basin that exhibit a similar magnetic and ZTEM signature to mineralization exposed at Adriana.

Evrim will be the operator for the drill program.
About the Suaqui Verde Property
The Suaqui Verde copper project covers 63 km² of ground located in the southern portion of a highly prospective belt of porphyry copper deposits ranging from Sonora, Mexico through to central Arizona. The belt hosts numerous mines, including the Cananea Copper Mine (7.1 billion tons @ 0.42% copper)* in Sonora and the Morenci Copper Mine (4.7 billion tons @ 0.27% copper)* in central Arizona. This copper trend accounts for the second largest concentration of porphyry copper deposits in the world where mining for copper has been continuous for over 100 years.
