Vancouver BC - January 24, 2012: Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V:EVM) (“Evrim” or the “Company”) is pleased to report initial results from the on-going drill program at the Suaqui Verde copper-molybdenum porphyry project in Sonora, Mexico. Evrim and funding partner Inmet Mining Corporation have received assay results for six drill holes totaling 2,625 metres of an expanded 6,200 metre drill program. The program is designed to test a combination of geophysical targets and exposed surface targets within the Adriana system and the surrounding basin.
- Drill holes DHSV11003 and DHSV11004, collared within the Adriana system and located 1,000 metres apart, returned long intersections from surface of copper mineralization hosted within biotite-albite-K-feldspar altered (potassic alteration) granodiorite intrusive rocks.
- Drill hole DHSV11003 returned 402.2 metres of 0.13% copper, 0.04 g/t gold, 1.1 g/t silver and 0.005% molybdenum including 116.2 metres of 0.19% copper, 0.07 g/t gold, 1.3 g/t silver and 0.006% molybdenum.
- Drill hole DHSV11004 returned 354.6 metres of 0.14% copper, 0.04 g/t gold, 1.1 g/t silver and 0.002% molybdenum including 58 metres of 0.22% copper, 0.06 g/t gold, 1.8 g/t silver and 0.002% molybdenum.
- An east-northeast corridor of anomalous copper mineralization measuring 1,700 metres by 500 metres has now been outlined by drilling.
The Adriana system at Suaqui Verde exhibits an exposed two kilometre by four kilometre propylitic-phyllic-potassic alteration foot print indicative of a copper-molybdenum porphyry system before it is covered by post mineralization basin fill. Current drilling at Adriana has focused on testing deeper parts of the system in a series of wide step outs ranging from 500 metres to 1,300 metres. Drilling within the basin has focused on finding new porphyry centres or extensions to the Adriana system.
Other drill holes completed to date include DHSV11001, DSHV11002, DHSV11005 and DHSV11006. DHSV11001, located 1.6 kilometres north of DHSV11003, intersected sporadic weakly anomalous copper mineralization in predominantly moderately quartz-sericite-pyrite altered (phyllic alteration) andesite volcanic rocks with minor monzonite intrusive rocks and quartz-tourmaline breccia. Hole DHSV11002, located 730 metres northeast of DHSV11003, intersected weakly anomalous copper and molybednum mineralization in moderately chlorite (propylitic alteration) overprinting weak biotite-albite altered (potassic alteration) granodiorite intrusive rock. Holes DHSV11005 and DHSV11006, located approximately 4.5 kilometres east of the Adriana system, did not return any significant results.
The drill program has been increased to approximately 6,200 metres as a result of cost efficiencies with drill contractors and Inmet’s commitment to testing deeper targets at Suaqui Verde. Drilling is expected to continue into March and will test additional targets within the Adriana system and the basin area. Drill hole intercepts for DHSV11003 and DHSV11004 are provided in the table below:
