Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 30, 2024) - Mundoro Capital Inc. (TSXV: MUN) (OTCQB: MUNMF) ( ("Mundoro" or the "Company") announces the operating and financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2023. The audited Financial Statements (FS), and Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for 2023 are filed on SEDAR+, and are available on Mundoro's website at under the heading "Investors."

Teo Dechev, CEO and President commented: "In 2023, the portfolio of partner funded programs had ~13,900 meters of drilling and 11 geophysical surveys completed over 9 projects in Serbia, Bulgaria and Arizona which amounted to $13.3 million in exploration expenditures. The outcomes of the exploration programs demonstrated a new mineralized system in Arizona at Dos Cabezas that merits additional drilling, as well as follow up targets for drill testing in Serbia and new targets in Bulgaria and Arizona.

Mundoro completed 2023 with positive cash-flow, which strengthened the cash position and resulted in the Company not needing to raise equity in 2024. As we enter 2024, Mundoro will be reinvesting the cash generated in 2023, to redeploy into generating projects, advancing targets for testing on the 6 existing projects available for new partnerships and actively pursuing new partners for these projects."

Operational Highlights from Q4-2023

  • Mundoro commenced drill program in Dos Cabezas, Arizona: In 2023, Mundoro commenced a drill program at the Dos Cabezas Project Project. This drill program tested four target areas (Mescal Canyon, Mineral Park, Northwest Pediment, Southeast Pediment) with 4 diamond drill holes for a total of 2145 meters. A fifth target, Casey Copper Canyon, has been permitted for future drilling. The results from Mescal Canyon and Mineral Park indicate a rare opportunity in Arizona for new porphyry copper systems. For further information see press release dated April 18, 2024.

  • Advancing Exploration at the JOGMEC Funded EE1 Project in Bulgaria: During Q4-2023, the Company advanced in the permitting process for drilling and submitted for permitting additional prospective areas identified within the EE-1 license, to allow for flexibility in the 2024 drill program.

  • Advancing Exploration at the BHP Funded Projects in Serbia: During Q4-2023, at the Trstenik license the company completed a passive seismic survey covering the project area, with geophysical processing and interpretation expected in H1-2024. In Q4-2023, at the South Corridor Project a grid-based soil geochemical survey was completed within the Ponor license area. Geochemical assay results are being interpreted as they become available from the lab. In Q4-2023, at the Lipovica license area, a reconnaissance mapping and rock sampling program commenced and will be ongoing into H1-2024.

  • Completion of Drilling at BHP-Mundoro Project in Serbia: In Q4-2023, a drill hole of 458.2 m was completed to test the volcanic stratigraphy package in part of the Vitanovac license area. Drill core logging confirmed the presence of volcanic units with similar characteristics to volcanic units hosting known ore deposits in the Timok Magmatic Complex.

  • Advanced Exploration at the Mundoro owned licenses in central Timok, Serbia: Funded by the Vale earn-in agreement, in Q4-2023 a passive seismic survey was carried out over part of the Skorusa and Oblez license areas, with interpretation from the survey expected in Q2-2024.
