VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 9, 2006) - Acero-Martin Exploration Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ASD)(FWB:AMX) is pleased to report that it has received outstanding assays from PDH-051 which is located within the Western Porphyry Zone("WPZ") and east of the open-pit Gold Oxide Skarn Zone("GOSZ"). PDH-051 has returned 149.7 m/491 ft averaging 0.80 g/t gold and 0.13% copper including 81 m/265.7 ft averaging 1.08 g/t gold and 0.23% copper. This hole is located approximately 100 M east of PDH-039 that returned 83.95 m/275.4 ft of 2.1 g/t gold and 1.11% copper and 50 M south of PDH-047 that returned 98.0 m/321.4 ft of 0.69 g/t gold and 0.39% copper.
Infill drilling at the WPZ continues to produce high-grade intersections of gold-copper mineralization. The Company notes that as drilling advances from the WPZ easterly towards the GOSZ, the mineralized intersections are increasing in thickness. Hole-47 (below) is a notable example, with 0.6 g/t Au and 0.35% Cu across 116.8 m. Recent results were announced June 6, 2006 for holes PDH-45 from the MCOZ, and PDH-044, PDH-46 through PDH-50 from the WPZ.
- PDH-46- 64.8 meters (212.5 feet) of 1.03% Cu; mineralized from surface to a depth of 386.50 meters/1,268 ft.
- PDH-47- 116.8m/383.1 ft of 0.6 g/t gold and 0.332% copper
- PDH-48- 120 meters (393.6 feet) of 0.23 gpt Au and 0.35% Copper
- PDH-49(i)-25.7 meters (84.3 feet) of 0.90 gpt Au and 0.40% Copper
- PDH-50(i)-55.5 meters (182 feet) of 0.51 gpt Au and 0.45% Copper
(i) Holes PDH-49 and PDH-50 were lost in underground workings
Donald Gee, President said "Both the North and South portions of the Western Porphyry Zone are producing significant ore-grade intersections. The strike length now exceeds 1.5 km, and locally exceeds 350 meters width. The foregoing mineralized intersections indicate an exceptionally large ore deposit that may be amenable to low cost extraction. The fact the Western Porphyry occurs along a ridge bodes well for low cost open pit mining. Past IP surveys have shown a coincident resistivity anomaly over 3 Km in length along the WPZ. Copper and gold geochemistry anomalies have shown to be also coincident with the WPZ but over a greater than 4 Km strike length and up to 1 Km in width. The WPZ is open to the north and south. The width now appears to be up to 450 m but may be extended by current drilling.
Recent drilling has exposed potential for the GOSZ to be approximately 500 m in length. Infill drilling northwest of PDH-027 and 028 needs to be completed to fully confirm this potential continuity."
