Prospero Silver Discusses Results to Date of Campana Project Drill Program
Vancouver, B.C. - Prospero Silver Corp. (TSXV: PSL) ("Prospero" or the "Company") announced today the results of an 870m diamond drill program at its Campana project in central Durango State, Mexico. Holes CAM-11-01 and CAM-11-02 focussed to the east and north of historic drilling (2007) that showed disseminated gold and silver mineralization over intersections up to 330m in length. The two-hole program, just finished, tested a zone characterized by chargeability and resistivity highs (Figure 1) as outlined by Z-TEM and IP surveys conducted earlier this year (refer to news releases of July 13, 2011 and August 29, 2011).
The review of this Phase 1 geophysical program highlights the importance of an extensive ground-based magnetic survey completed by the Company in 2009 (Figures 1 and 2). A two-pronged horn-shaped pattern of low magnetism occurs north and east of where holes CAM-11-01 and CAM-11-02 were drilled. The low magnetic responses reflect destruction of magnetic minerals and the possible presence of stronger hydrothermalism and mineralization. Results from CAM-11-01 and CAM-11-02 combined with the information gained from the ground-based magnetic survey direct further exploration to three target areas:
"The information gained from the new holes drilled at Campana 1 and from the historic holes enable us to better understand the ground Mag data for the project," said Tawn Albinson, President of Prospero Silver. "The ground Mag data will be a very important tool in guiding our drilling programs at Campana going forward," he added.
A phase 2 drill program of 4,000m is required to test the target zones defined to date by the drilling and geophysical surveys.
Tawn Albinson, M.Sc., President of the Company, is a Qualified Person, as defined in NI 43-101, and is responsible for the technical content of this press release.
