ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2011) - PERSHIMCO RESOURCES INC. (the "Company" or "Pershimco") (TSX VENTURE:PRO) (FRANKFURT:BIZ) is pleased to announce assay results from the 2011 exploration campaign at the Company's Cerro Quema Gold-Copper Project (the "Project") in Panama. The new assay results, part of the Quema Target validation drilling includes a higher-grade surface intercept of 36 meters at 3.61 g/t Gold and 94 meters at 0.93 g/t gold. These new results are part of the most eastern drilling holes done by Pershimco to date.
These new vertical holes drilled on the Quema Target brings the longitudinal footprint to over 4.3 kilometers including the LaPava Target at the western end where the two drill rigs are presently working. The exercise of these reverse circulation (RC) drill hole where to rapidly validate the oxide gold cap on the Quema-Quemita gold oxide cap in order bring the resources to a 43-101 industry standard. In the process, the RC hole PRH11009 was stopped in the supergene layer for mechanical reasons giving 3 meters of 1.66% Copper with 0.57g/t Gold and 2g/t Silver. Based on these results and LaPava results, Pershimco's will double the number of drill rigs as soon as the rainy season ends in mid-november. These new essay results, are represented in the following table and can be located on the longitudinal view attached to this press release:
|DDH #||From||To||Core Length||Au||Ag||Cu|
Core length is based on vertical drilling through the mineralized oxide dome. Further exploration will permit detailed modeling of the deposit.
During this rainy season in Panama, Pershimco has still two drill rigs fan-drilling along the northern segment of the LaPava Target in order to rapidly bring the mineralization towards NI 43-101 compliant mineral resources and exploring the deeper copper-gold potential of LaPava. All access roads and drill site platforms have been prepared for the drill rigs along the LaPava Target's northern slope.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control ("QA/QC")
Drill cores from diamond and RC holes cuts are transported by Pershimco technical personnel from the drill sites to the Cerro Quema Core Shack. There, qualified geologists and technicians log, sample tag and half-split the core in 1 m lengths using stationary saws. The individual sampled intervals of half-split core are then inserted in tagged plastic bag, and sent to the Activation Laboratories (Actlabs) sample preparation facilities in Panama. Individual samples are inventoried by Actlabs personnels, dried, finely crushed to 70% at 2 mm, then pulverized to 85% at 75 μm, and riffle-split to 150 grams. There is 1 Standard, 1 Duplicate and 1 Blank inserted for every 15 samples batch. Samples are then inserted in sealed 5-gallon plastic pails then shipped by courier to the Activation Laboratories main facilities in Ancaster (Ontario, Canada) for assaying using the Muti-element ICP Method and the Pyro-analysis Method with Atomic Absorption Finish for Gold, Silver and Copper. Re-assays are done on samples with results greater than to 2.5 g/t Gold and greater than 10,000 ppm Copper.
