Toronto, Canada, April 25, 2017 -- Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; FSE: P2Q; "Eloro") is pleased to announce further results from its on-going geological mapping and sampling program at its La Victoria Gold/Silver Property (the "Property") in Huandoval District, Pallasca Province, Ancash Department, Peru. As shown in Figure 1, this work has outlined two major new target areas in the north-central part of the Property known as Ccori Orcco. Target 1 is located approximately 1.5km east of San Markito while Target 2 is approximately 500m south of Target 1 and 1.5km east of Rufina (Figure 1). Figure 2 is a composite cross section for the San Markito-Ccori Orcco-Rufina areas showing the potential extent of the epithermal systems.
Both target areas in Ccori Orcco are at least 200m wide and extend for approximately 1 km along strike parallel to major NW-SE and NE-SW structures in the area. Mineralization is associated with hydrothermal (argillic and silicic) and supergene alteration in hydrothermal breccias associated with quartz feldspar porphyries ("QFP"). Preliminary sampling has been carried out in the area; results are pending.
Reinterpretation of historical Induced Polarization ("IP") data in the San Markito area shows a strong chargeability anomaly that coincides with the Ag-Au showings in mineralized breccias (Figure 1). The anomaly extends for at least 1250m North-South at depths from about 50 m to more than 200m, the maximum depth reached with the array that was used for the survey. The anomaly extends as far south as the last IP line. It is thus open to the South as well as to greater depth. The shape of the anomaly suggests elongation in a north or north-northwest direction, parallel to important structures that have been mapped at San Markito.
Tom Larsen, President and CEO of Eloro commented: "We have now outlined five major target areas at La Victoria. Two of these areas, Rufina and San Markito, are nearing final permit approval for diamond drilling which is expected to commence in June. Extension of the IP surveys to cover the new target areas in Ccori Orcco is planned to commence at the end of May as well as continuation of the successful mapping and sampling program. Reconnaissance work including a detailed magnetic survey will also be carried out on the new southern claim block."
Dr. Bill Pearson, Chief Technical Advisor for Eloro, added: "It is evident that there are multiple low to intermediate sulphidation epithermal systems on the La Victoria project. These systems appear to be controlled by major NW-SE trending faults with mineralization typically occurring at intersections of these faults with NE-SW trending structures as well as along intrusive-sedimentary contacts. The identification of QFP intrusives in the Ccori Orcco area is very positive as these intrusives are associated with major gold deposits elsewhere in the belt."
