Camino Discovers New Copper Gold Zone
Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - March 28, 2019) - Camino Minerals Corp. (TSXV: COR) (OTCQB: CAMZF) (WKN: A116E1) ("Camino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the discovery of a new mineralized zone on the 20,000 hectare Chapitos Copper-Gold project, near Chala, Southern Peru.
CEO John Williamson commented, "Camino Geologists continue to discover new and exciting mineralization on the Chapitos Project. The newest discovery, the Lidia Zone, is located to the northwest of the main Adriana Copper Zone, and adds an entirely new type of exploration target to the Property comprising a large area of Copper and Gold anomalism, which is extremely interesting."
The Lidia zone is roughly 3km by 4km in size, elongated slightly in a North-South direction, and lies within the northern part of the Chapitos Property approximately 5km northwest of the Adriana Copper Zone. The Lidia zone currently comprises a wide area of Copper and Gold geochemical anomalies defined by both rock and soil sampling. A total of 238 rock samples have been collected in the Lidia area that, although somewhat selective in nature, collectively average 0.20 g/t Gold (Au) and 0.75% Copper (Cu) with individual samples returning values of up to 11.1g/t Au and 23.4% Cu (see Figure 1). Mineralization is hosted within stockwork quartz veins, some of which are associated with zones of shearing and brecciation within the host Monzonite.

The 2019 exploration program will include work specifically designed to further examine the new Lidia Cu-Au zone and identify possible drill targets for the 2019 drill program. This work will include detailed geological mapping, chip/channel and or trench sampling, and geophysics.
