Coro Amends Terms of San Jorge Agreement


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2012) - Coro Mining Corp. ("Coro" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:COP) is pleased to announce that Franco-Nevada Corporation ("Franco Nevada") and the Company have agreed to amend the terms of the Purchase Agreement by which Coro may acquire its 100% interest in Minera San Jorge ("MSJ"). Franco Nevada acquired Lumina Royalty Corp, the previous owner of MSJ in December 2011.

The amended terms for Coro to acquire 100% of MSJ are as follows;

* Option payments by Coro of US$1.25 million per year, for 10 years, payable quarterly, commencing March 31, 2012
* Coro may at any time, prepay the outstanding amount with a one-time payment equal to the net present value of the future payments, using a 5% discount rate
* A 7.5% Net Smelter Return ("NSR") payable by Coro on all gold produced from the property
* The option payments are not payable when exceeded by the gold NSR payment for the period
* No other consideration, obligations, payments, or royalties are due to Franco Nevada, and Coro may withdraw from the Agreement at any time by not making the payments due.

Table 1 compares the amended terms with the previous acquisition terms. The companies have signed a non-binding letter of intent and are in the process of finalizing the amended agreement.

Alan Stephens, President and CEO of Coro commented, "We are very pleased that Franco Nevada has shown its willingness to modify the terms of the Purchase Agreement. The previous agreement contemplated US$9.25 million in payments over the next 15 months; the new option payment schedule allows Coro to stage its investment in the project until it has greater certainty on the ability to permit the project in Mendoza province. The Company will provide its shareholders with an update of the status of San Jorge shortly."

As of December 31, 2011 the Company had approximately CA$12 million in cash, and is well funded to advance its projects.

Artha Resources Corporation: Argentina-Organullo Gold-Silver Property Update


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2012) - Artha Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:AHC) is pleased to provide this update on our recent reconnaissance field work completed in late 2011 on the newly optioned Organullo gold-silver project in Salta Province, NW Argentina. Sampling results coupled with a detailed structural interpretation have highlighted three initial target zones within the 8km by 8km altered and mineralised system identified by previous exploration.

Highlights from Recent Artha Work

Artha completed an initial reconnaissance level mapping (at 1:10 000 scale) and sampling program in November/December 2011 which was intended to familiarize our technical team with the property and ground truth historical results. The focus of the work was the 3.5km zone through the central part of the property near the historic Julio Verne mine. The outcome of this work has been a detailed structural interpretation of the property providing a better understanding of its context in the regional geological framework (Map 1) as well as a clearer picture of the mineralisation.

Artha has identified three initial target zones based on recent mapping and sampling and historical work. Map 2 depicts these three zones in the context of gold anomalism from recent and historical surface sampling. From this work Zones 2 and 3 are considered high priority.

* Zone 2: located in the central part of the property; large Au anomaly (>0.25ppm Au) 750x600m in size; includes the Julio Verne Mine (Cu-Bi-Au±Pb±Ag±As±Sb) and Claudia and Belen veins (Au-Pb-±Sb-±Mo) and Virginia, Martha and Carolina veins (Au-Pb-Zn-As). This zone has been previously drilled however due to very poor recoveries, in the order of 20-30%, it is considered to remain a high priority target. See Maps 3A and 3B for more detailed geology, historic drill hole collars and a cross section through the zone.

* Zone 3: located at the northern part of the property, low grade gold-silver anomalism over a broad area. Bulk tonnage system target.

A follow-up program will be undertaken starting in April 2012 which will include an initial surface trenching program designed to test for broader zones of mineralisation both adjacent to and between the sheeted vein system in the central part of the property (Target 2 on Map 2) as well as test for broad low grade bulk tonnage potential to the north of the historical Julio Verne mine (Target 3 on Map 2).

About Organullo

* Organullo is a relatively advanced project with excellent potential for both high and low sulphidation type epithermal high grade gold and silver as well as bulk tonnage lower grade gold and silver mineralization.
* Salta is a mining friendly province with committed government support for exploration. Local infrastructure is considered good with a nearby rail line and experienced local labor force.
* Sampling by previous explorers identified a gold-silver mineralized area of approximately 8-km by 8-km.
* Historic drilling intersected 189 metres of 0.66 g/t gold and 186 metres of 0.50 g/t gold in two separate holes suggesting a large bulk tonnage, low grade gold (and silver) system exists on the property but this model has not been adequately targeted or explored.
* Previous drilling programs had very poor recoveries in both diamond and reverse circulation methods.
* Much of the previous drilling has gold and silver intersections in both veins and broader lower grade zones. Many areas remain untested.

Geology and Mineralisation.

At least 13 mineralized veins, distributed in three domains, have been mapped out and recent work by Artha, including 210 rock chip samples has confirmed this. Vein outcrops are 200 to 400m long and 0.2 to 6.0m wide. Mineralization consists of crackle banded quartz with traces of galena, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and some sulfosalts; gold values ranges from <1 g/t to 37g/t Au in rock chips. Silica-pyrite alteration is widespread around the intrusive contacts; weak sericite and advance argillic alteration form haloes on the wall rock of the veins. Weak pyrite-chlorite-epidote alteration occurs at the periphery of the mineralized system. Previous drilling data has been reviewed with the best vein intercepts: Natalia Vein (1m @ 8.9g/t Au); Belén Vein (2m @ 11.0g/t Au); Marta Vein (1.20m @ 0.51g/t Au); Sara Vein (1.7m @ 12.3g/t Au); Virginia Vein (1.20m @ 3.45g/t Au) and Loly Vein (1.40 @ 1.13g/t Au).

Pirquitas Update

Artha is continuing to negotiate a formal access agreement with the local community at Pirquitas to enable higher impact activities to commence such as drilling. The summer rainy season has also deterred any field activities in the region for the last few months.

Ivan Alberto Drilling

The final report on the first phase drilling program completed last year was received by Artha Management last week from its consultants who managed the work and is currently being reviewed. The conclusions and recommendations from the report are that as near surface, precious and base metal mineralisation of economic grade was not encountered over sufficient widths in enough holes, further drilling is not warranted at this stage. All results are being reviewed to determine further work on the property which contains favorable geology and still remains highly prospective, however, given Artha's large property portfolio in the region the company needs to allocate funds to other projects at this stage.

Corporate News

The Company reports that Dennis Stover has resigned from the board of directors of Artha. The Company thanks Mr. Stover for his services as a director. The Company also announces that pursuant to the Company's Stock Option Plan, it has granted 1,275,000 incentive stock options to its directors, officers, employees and consultants at an exercise price of $0.10 per share, and expire on February 29, 2017. Charles Straw, B.Sc., is the qualified person under NI 43-101 responsible for the technical information in this news release. Artha was founded by a team of mining industry professionals with a proven track record in project generation, exploration, mining and finance. The team's primary goal is to build Artha into a world class mining company, focused on the discovery, development and mining of economic minerals deposits globally.

Mariana Reports Remaining Phase IV Drilling Results at Sierra Blanca Project, Deseado Massif, Southern Argentina


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2012) - Mariana Resources Ltd ('Mariana' or 'the Company') (AIM:MARL)(PLUS:MARL)(TSX:MRY), the AIM and TSX quoted exploration and development company focused on Argentina and Chile, is pleased to report further assay results received from the remaining 18 holes of the 5,200m 26-hole Phase IV drilling campaign at the Sierra Blanca gold-silver project ('Sierra Blanca') in the Deseado Massif of southern Argentina. Mariana finalised the purchase of the outstanding interest in the project from IAMGOLD last week, to make the project 100% owned by Mariana (see announcement 24 February 2012).

Overview

* Scout drilling confirms broad target areas at Vetarron, Lucila, Trafwe and Achen-Chala along a combined 8.9km strike
* New target area Vetarron Norte has intersections of vein-breccias anomalous in gold and silver in VND122 and VND 123 following 4.5m @ 3.6 g/t Au & 159 g/t Ag from 85.5m in previously announced VND102
* Two thirds of the 1.8km strike at Vetarron is untested with a possible 1.25km northerly extension under gravel cover
* Further zones of strongly anomalous to low grade gold-silver intersected at the 1.8km Lucila vein target in several drill holes - intersections of NW structures along the EW Lucila trend identified as additional targets
* Scout drilling along the 1.4 km gravel covered Trafwe magnetic low target between Lucila and Achen has intersected a structure hosting quartz-sulphides with elevated gold and silver values: 2.3m @ 0.6 g/t Au and 21 g/t Ag - TRD104 and 0.5m @ 0.5 g/t Au and 49 g/t Ag - TRD114
* At Achen-Chala, silver mineralisation with anomalous gold was intersected in CHD115 with 1.6m @ 0.4 g/t Au 91 g/t Ag from 99.9m
* Target areas to be advanced with structural/alteration mapping and detailed ground magnetics

Executive Chairman John Horsburgh said, "Broad target areas with a combined strike length of 8.9km (Vetarron, Lucila, Trafwe and Achen-Chala) have been identified. In particular, Vetarron Norte is shaping up as a priority target area, both in terms of strike length and depth potential. Also, two drill holes testing the 1.4km linear magnetic low between Lucila and Achen have located quartz-sulphides in structures with gold and silver mineralisation below thick gravel cover. These results underpin further exploration of the vein systems guided by structural and alteration mapping and detailed ground magnetics."

To view the figures referred to in this report click on the following link:
http://www.marianaresources.com/pdf/release/Mariana_120229.pdf

Vetarron Norte (Figure 3)

The target area comprises multiple quartz sulfide vein breccias over widths up to 25m along a 1.8 km N-S trend delineated by outcrops with rock chips up to 0.3 g/t Au and 23 g/t Ag, IP chargeability anomalies and magnetic lows. The host rocks are andesites and sediments.

Quartz-sulfide breccias/stockworks up to 50m wide and anomalous in gold (25m @ 0.3 g/t Au - VND100 and 6.5m @ 0.3 g/t Au - VND123) have been intersected by testing strong chargeablity anomalies below limited outcrop. Encouragingly, VND102 from the first batch, intersected 0.5m @ 12.1 g/t Au and 732 g/t Ag.

Two thirds of the 1.8km trend are untested to date. In the area drilled, chalcedonic quartz with high pathfinder elements (antimony and arsenic) indicate an intact high level epithermal system with potential at depth. Recently discovered outcrops of gold-anomalous quartz breccia in covered ground, 200m (coincident chargeability anomaly) and 1,250m north of the area drilled (prominent magnetic low) indicate a northerly extension of the system. (Figures 2 and 3)

Lucila Vein Zone (Figure 4)

The 1.8km E-W trending Lucila vein (up to 5m thick) coincides with a 5.3 km ENE trending magnetic low which includes the Trafwe target. Scout drilling (2008) intersected quartz-chalcedony veins, silicification (up to 30m wide) and low grade gold-silver. Recent results from LUD118 and 119 show silver-rich mineralisation persisting at depth (2m @ 0.3 g/t Au 53 g/t Ag from 119m - LUD118). Higher gold-silver values are related to the intersection of the main E-W main structure with NW secondary structures (Figure 4). Along the 1.4 km long Trafwe sector, two holes intercepted a quartz-sulphide rich structure: 2.3m @ 0.61 g/t Au and 21 g/t Ag - TRD104 and 0.5m @ 0.5 g/t Au and 49 g/t Ag - TRD114.

New targets have been identified northwest of Lucila post-drilling, including an untested magnetic low and a 500m N-S trending area of chalcedonic quartz float with associated clay alteration.

Achen-Chala (Figure 5)

Silver mineralisation with anomalous gold was intersected from 99.9m in CHD115 with 1.6m @ 0.4 g/t Au 91 g/t Ag. Best intersections announced in the initial batch were: 1.0m @ 0.3 g/t Au 206 g/t Ag - CHD93 and 0.6m @ 4.1 g/t Au 549 g/t Ag - CHD95. A drill plan and an updated assay x width longitudinal section are shown for Achen-Chala (Figure 6). The vein system has been tested to approximately 150m to 200m below surface.
Table: Results summary




Gold equivalent grade is calculated by dividing silver assays by 60 and adding to the gold value and this assumes 100% metallurgical recovery. True widths are estimated to be 85-90% of the stated interval.

Follow-up Exploration

Taking into account the recent drill results and indications of strike extensions to the north under cover, the extensive Vetarron area requires further target definition in the form of detailed ground magnetics and mapping. Ongoing work at Lucila, Trafwe and Achen-Chala will include structural/alteration mapping and detailed magnetic surveying to identify favourable structural controls on mineralisation such as NW trending cross structures which could lead to higher grade mineralisation.

Sierra Blanca Background

The 7,000 Ha Sierra Blanca Project is 50km NW of AngloGold Ashanti's Cerro Vanguardia mine along the Tranquilo regional fault system and adjacent to TSX quoted Argentex Mining's Pinguino epithermal gold-silver/polymetallic discovery (Figure 1). Sierra Blanca owns 100% of the Project.

Mariana discovered epithermal gold-silver mineralisation at Veta Chala in 2008. Reverse circulation and diamond holes (1,750m), targeted veins and breccias exposed in trenches with bonanza and high grade channel sampling assays (see news release 02/04/08). Several holes were ineffective with poor core recovery or high water flow in RC holes. 3-D IP, LAG sampling and ground magnetic surveys preceded the recent programme. There are several epithermal gold-silver prospects and numerous under-explored veins located within the property. Sierra Blanca has both low and intermediate style sulphidation epithermal mineralisation. Best intersections to date are 30.1m @ 2.2 g/t Au 101 g/t Ag & 2.1m @ 15.9 g/t Au 39 g/t Ag (Chala Central) and 11.0m @ 3.4 g/t Au 385 g/t Ag (Chala Splay).

Marifil Reports Trenching Results on Cerro Samenta Porphyry Copper Property


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2012) - MARIFIL MINES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:MFM) ("Marifil" or "the Company") reports that re-sampling of trenches on its Cerro Samenta porphyry copper project, Salta Province, Argentina confirms the presence of strong copper mineralization. The encouraging results of this sampling are set out in Table 1 below:




The trenches were originally dug by Teck Corp in the 1990s (see Marifil News Release dated November 30, 2011). The sample program was carried out by Petro Gold Servicios Mineros S.R.L., an independent geological services company. The purpose of the sampling program was to verify the presence and extent of oxide soluble copper.

Marifil concludes from the results of this examination that a significant copper oxide deposit may be present and that additional trenching along with shallow rotary drilling is justified. Marifil also believes that copper sulfide mineralization associated with the oxide copper deposits has been insufficiently tested by previous workers, and the property shows good promise for discovery of a porphyry copper deposit.

The Cerro Samenta property lies within a transverse continental scale lineament known as the Archibarca Lineament which localizes a string of porphyry copper prospects and deposits including Escondida situated 120 kilometers to the northwest of Cerro Samenta in Chile.

The project comprises two large and separate intrusive centers, the North Zone and the South Zone. Both zones display porphyry style copper and molybdenum sulfide mineralization within clusterhydrothermally altered quartz monzonite and rhyolitic intrusives. Both of the sulfide systems show strong induced potential (I.P.) geophysical anomalies. The South Zone appears to have been adequately drill tested by previous workers, but the North Zone, the site of the oxide copper trenches, lacks sufficient drilling for testing all the exploration potential.

Jeff Toohey, a qualified person and geologic consultant retained by Marifil to study the porphyry exploration potential of the property, concludes that further work is warranted and recommended with three key drill targets in the North Zone: the untested north-western quadrant of the chargeability anomaly (I.P.); the hydrothermal breccia deposit; and the sources of other occurrences of moderate- to high-grade oxide-Cu mineralization that has been sampled in soils and float and exposed in the sampled trenches to the south of the hydrothermal breccia.

Mr. Richard Walters remarks, "Cerro Samenta lies within a well established structural corridor hosting several porphyry copper deposits. It has easy access, and it's big with plenty of exploration romance. Already, a major copper producer has approached Marifil to engage in joint venture terms discussions."

This press release has been reviewed and approved by John Hite, President of Marifil Mines Ltd. and by Richard Walters, Vice President under whose directions the exploration program is being carried out. Mr. Walters is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Cascadero Copper Corporation: Property-Scale Rock Geochemistry Strongly Supports Large Tonnage Cu-Mo-Au Potential of Pancho Arias Porphyry



Geochemistry Coincident With High-Chargeability Geophysical Anomaly

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2012) - Cascadero Copper Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CCD) -

Salta Exploraciones S.A. (Salta), Cascadero's 50% owned Argentine subsidiary, has received assay results from a property-scale rock geochemistry program on the Pancho Arias Cu-Mo-Au porphyry prospect in Salta province, north western Argentina. Salta geologists collected 294 rock samples from outcrop over an area ~1,600 metres east west by 2,200 metres north south. The program was operated by Salta and designed and supervised by Raul Chocobar, Vice-President of Exploration and a director of Salta.

In late 2010, the sample area was subject to a ground based IP/Res/Mag geophysical program that consisted of 219 km of magnetic readings and eleven lines of IP data at 400-metre line spacing totaling 53 line kms.

The magnetic data identified a large weak oval-shaped magnetic-high measuring approximately 1,500 metres by 3,000 metres that correlates closely with a strong chargeability anomaly. Within the large weak magnetic-high, there are several smaller stronger magnetic-highs. Other magnetic-highs occur to the south, west, and north, outside of the strong IP anomaly.

The IP data outline strong chargeability anomalies in the central portion of the grid with chargeabilities from 40 mV/V to as high as 100 mV/V. The strong chargeability anomalies are coincident with strongly conductive zones over a zone measuring approximately 1,400 metres by 2,500 metres.

Weaker chargeability anomalies (12 to 20 mV/V) associated with high-resistivities are observed in the western portion of the grid. The weak chargeability anomalies in the west, together with the strong chargeability anomalies, form a circular zone approximately 3,000 metres in diameter at an elevation of 300 metres below the survey lines. The high-chargeability anomaly is open at 500 metres below the survey lines.

The Pancho Arias rock geochemistry assays appear to conform to and identify mineral zoning characteristic of porphyry Cu-Mo-Au deposits. The molybdenum (moly) assays are distributed throughout the area but the high-grade samples are concentrated in the north east part of the deposit in an area approximately 800 metres east west by 1,000 metres north south, which may be the potassic zone. Of the 294 rock samples, 72 moly samples are >100 ppm and 10 are >500 ppm moly (up to 1,900 ppm Mo), all of which are in this north east zone.

The majority of the copper assays (163 of 294) are >100 ppm and up to >10,000 ppm (>1%), are located in a circular zone that wraps around the high-grade moly zone to the west and south.

Gold values, >10 ppb gold, are present in 108 of the 294 samples and occur throughout the sample area but the higher-grades flank the copper zone and proximal to it especially on the western and southern area of the property. Nine samples are >1,000 ppb gold (one gram gold per tonne) with the highest assay at 4,190 ppb gold.

The mineralized pattern of the surface geochemistry coincides with and supports the underlying geophysical pattern of high-chargeability and high-resistivity. The data generally confirm the presence of a multi-phase mineralized intrusion. The data are critically important to locating and determining the depth and the highest priority drill targets.

Salta intends to start 3,000 metre core drilling program at Pancho Arias in early 2012.

Pancho Arias is the most northern of three identified Cu-Mo-Au porphyry systems in the Pancho Arias Mineral District. The three porphyries are controlled by a south west trending linear structure and are believed to have a common magmatic origin. Las Burras is 8 kms southwest of Pancho and Incahuasi is 3 kms southwest of Las Burras.

Pancho has 10 historic drill holes (1973-5) that outlined a deposit with values of moly and copper in shallow core holes. The core was not assayed for gold. Salta intends to re-drill at some of the historic locations and drill new locations. The program is planned to identify an inferred copper, moly, gold resource.

In mid-2012, Salta intends to conduct the first drill program on Incahuasi. In 2010, Salta completed an IP/Res/Mag geophysical survey that identified a large zone of chargeability that is 1,600 metres north south and >4,000 metres east west, which is open in both directions and to at least 500 metres below the survey lines. In late 2011, Salta completed an MMI geochemical survey in the area of the IP survey. Samples were collected by Salta personnel and assayed at SGS Peru. A full report is near completion.

In 2011, Salta drilled six core holes at Las Burras, four in section across the northern part of the porphyry and two drill holes on related quartz tourmaline sulphide veins distal to the porphyry. Three of the four drill holes in the porphyry is mineralized from surface to 300 metres (EOH) with variable copper-moly-gold values. The fourth hole was lost at 175 metres in mineralization. The Las Burras discovery hole is LB11-03, which assayed 0.42% copper, 0.02% moly and 0.10 g/t gold from surface to 120 metres, with similar moly and gold values to 300 metres but with a lower copper grade. The property requires additional core drilling. An eighteen (18) core hole program totaling 5,400 metres is planned for September 2012. The program is planned to identify an inferred copper, moly, gold resource.

The Company is excited by the opportunity that the Pancho Arias District porphyries provide. Each system has a large-scale geophysical footprint. Each has coincident geochemical and geophysical signatures. Pancho Arias has copper-moly in drill holes and Las Burras has copper-moly-gold in drill holes. The showings are closely spaced and each has potential to host a mid-to-large porphyry system.

The proximity of the showings and the combined potential tonnage could be of interest to most global mining companies in the copper, moly, gold space. The Pancho Arias District has exceptional infrastructure with fresh surface water, a railway to the Pacific Ocean Port of Antofagasta, a high-tension power line and a natural gas pipe line, all within a few kilometres of the porphyries.

Kestrel Gold Inc.: Surface Sampling Highlights the Near Surface Bulk Tonnage Potential of Gold Mineralization at Huachi Property, Argentina



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.

Kestrel Gold Inc. ("Kestrel" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:KGC) is pleased to announce the release of the initial results from its surface sampling of road cuts and trenches on its 540 hectare Huachi property in San Juan Province, Argentina (the "Huachi Property") conducted in conjunction with the Corporation's 2011 diamond drilling campaign.

The results from 223 continuous one metre rock chip samples (including QA/QC samples) have been processed and compiled by Kestrel. Sampling was distributed over six lines covering the outcrops found along the roads and trenches on the east hill side of Cerro Los Bronces.

Highlights

Significant new continuous chip road sections include:

* 4.40 g/t Au over 7.0 metres
* 1.61 g/ Au over 13.0 metres
* 0.64 g/t Au over 6.0 metres

The results suggest that the best surface samples in terms of higher gold grade are where NW structures intersect what is believed to be a continuation of the NNE trending "Sentazon Structure". While the significant values reported are not true widths of the "Sentazon Structure" itself, the sample intervals stated may approximate true widths across NW trending mineralized structures.

The significant values stated are from two parallel northeast trending road cuts up to 30 metres apart where 71 and 64 one metre continuous chip samples were taken respectively. In this area, vuggy textured silica veins are hosted in a partially brecciated, fractured and highly altered, quartz-feldspar porphyry.

Geological Setting

The gold bearing quartz-feldspar porphyry rocks sampled display a dominant NW trending fracture/cleavage with strong argillic alteration that overprints propylitic alteration.

The occurrence and recognition of these mineralized structural alignments oblique to the direction of the major mineralized structures already known, opens up, in the opinion of management, new possibilities for exploration of other higher grade mineralized zones with the view to further increasing the volume of the gold bearing component at the Huachi Property.

Results for drill holes 11-HU-21 to 11-HU-23 including those targeting the "Sentazon Structure" as well as results from further surface trench sampling of the road cuts are anticipated to be released shortly, following QA/QC procedures and also pending further laboratory reports. Maps relating to the content of this news release showing the distribution of sample lines and the relative locations of samples will be posted on the Corporation's website.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

Samples were submitted to Alex Stewart Assayers Argentina S.A. in Mendoza, Argentina an ISO 9000-2000 accredited laboratory. Gold and silver results were determined using standard fire assay techniques on a 30 gram sample with a gravimetric finish for gold and silver. In addition to this, ICP-AR (Aqua Regia digestion) analysis was performed on 39 elements. Gustavo Fernandez P.Geo of UAKO Geological Consultants supervised and assessed the QA/QC procedures and data in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 requirements.

About Kestrel Gold Inc.

Kestrel is a gold exploration company headquartered in Canada. Its two principal projects are the King Solomon Dome project in Canada's Yukon Territory and the Huachi project in Argentina. Kestrel (KGC) is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange.

Argentex Drills 4.0 Meters of 8.64 g/t Au and 2,469.3 g/t Ag Within 17.0 Meters of 3.14 g/t Au and 761.1 g/t Ag at Pinguino



Marta Este Vein Reveals Additional High-Grade Gold and Silver Mineralization in Shallow Drilling

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2011) - Argentex Mining Corporation ("Argentex" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ATX)(OTCBB:AGXMF) is pleased to release additional drill results from its 2011 exploration program at the Pinguino project, located in Santa Cruz province, Argentina. The program consisted of 19,704 meters of drilling in 206 holes. To date, the Company has received analytical results from 14,951 meters of drilling from 168 holes, with approximately 18 % of holes remaining to be processed in the lab.

Results below are from the most recent 14 holes from the Pinguino property. All of these holes are located on the Marta Este vein within the larger Marta Vein system. (A map of drill hole collars is available on the Company's web site at www.argentexmining.com).




Ken Hicks, President of Argentex, commented "The combination of a high grade silver and gold core within a larger mineralized interval reaching up to tens of meters in width suggests a very strong mineralized system located at or near the surface. The Marta vein system consists (from North to South) of the Marta Noroeste, the Marta Este-Marta Oeste, and the Marta Centro veins and represents a mineralized strike length of 3,000 plus meters. We believe that these near-surface high-grade silver and gold discoveries at Pinguino will play a key role in enhancing the upcoming resource update."

About Pinguino

Argentex's 10,000-hectare advanced silver and gold exploration Pinguino project is located in Argentina's Patagonia region, within the Deseado Massif of Santa Cruz province. The Deseado Massif is an active region of mining with four precious metal mines currently in production, and includes multiple active advanced and early stage exploration projects.

Pinguino is easily accessible, situated approximately 400 meters above sea level in low-relief topography. An existing system of all-weather roads provides year-round access to the property. Argentex believes that recent high-grade precious metal discoveries within newly tested structures of the district scale vein system at Pinguino show potential for the development of a significant silver-gold resource.

To date the Company has completed over 56,000 meters of drilling in over 500 holes on 19 veins. More than 50 individual vein segments have been identified to date, comprising more than 75 line-kilometers of strike length.

Quality Assurance

Samples selected for analysis are sent to Acme Analytical Laboratories' sample preparation lab in Mendoza, Argentina. From there, sample pulps are sent to Santiago, Chile for fire assay gold analysis and to Vancouver, Canada for Group 1DX multi-element MS-ICP analysis. Samples with over-limit zinc, lead, silver and/or copper are reanalyzed using an ore-grade high detection limit 7AR analysis, also conducted in Vancouver. Acme Analytical Laboratories is an accredited ISO 9000:2001 full-service commercial laboratory with its head office located in Vancouver. Referee analyses will be carried out by Alex Stewart (assayers) Argentina S.A. in Mendoza, Argentina. Argentex, Acme and Alex Stewart all maintain comprehensive and independent Quality Control/Quality Assurance programs.

Exploration on the Pinguino property is being conducted under the supervision of Mr. Kenneth Hicks, P.Geo. Argentex's President and a "Qualified Person" (QP) as defined by Canada's National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Hicks is not considered "independent" of the issuer as he is part of Company management.

Marifil Completes Purchase of Key San Roque Claims

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2011) - Minsud Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MSR) ("Minsud" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results from Phase I drilling program at the Brechas Vacas property within Chita Valley Project in Argentina strategically located in the world-class El Indio mining district of Chile and Argentina where the Pascua-Lama and Veladero mines (Barrick) and the Del Carmen project (Malbex Resources) are located.

The Chinchillones target is silver (±Au) and base metals mineralized corridor (system of sheeted veins) striking NE hosted in Upper Carboniferous sandstones and shales. Within the northernmost part of the corridor drill hole ChS1104 intercepted 72.0 g/t silver and 0.23 g/t gold over 13.0 m and 393.0 g/t silver and 0.44 g/t gold over 1 meter confirming the continuity up to 220 m depth of a mineralized corridor previously found by surface trenching and drill hole MSA08C (see section on Exhibit I and location map on Exhibit II) over an area of 300 m long by 30 m wide. The veins are composed of crystalline, vuggy quartz often with comb-like structures infilled with sulphides and in some cases the vein structures are wider than 10 m with the individual veins three to four cm wide (locally up to 80 cm). Those thin veins were intersected in Chs1101 grading 105.0 g/t Ag, 0.18 g/t Au, 1.34 % Cu, 0.34% Pb, 1.56% Zn over 2 meters,, Ch1103 intersected 79.0 g/t Ag, 0.31 g/t Au, 0.13 % Cu, 6.71 % Pb, 20.45% Zn over 1 meter and CHS1105 intersected 136.0 g/t Ag, 0.40 g/t Au, 2.07 % Pb, 6.96 % Zn over 2 meters.




Roberto Milanese, Minera Sud Argentina S.A. VP Exploration said "it is remarkable the continuity of the Ag + Au + Base metals mineralization within the corridor, remaining open along strike and at depth, warranting further drilling."

Cascadero Copper Corporation: Non-Brokered Private Placement Announced


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2011) - Cascadero Copper (TSX VENTURE:CCD) (the "Company") announces a non-brokered Private Placement of 6,000,000 Units at $0.18 per Unit. One Unit consists of one Cascadero Copper common share and one share purchase warrant. One warrant plus $0.25 cents enables the bearer to purchase one common share of the Company for a period of up to 36-months. The warrant is transferrable and is subject to an Accelerated Exercise Clause. It is expected that Cascadero insiders will subscribe for up to 25% of the offering, which is the insiders approximate equity ownership of the Company. The Company will apply for a Supplemental Listing and, subject to TSX.V approval the warrants will be listed for trading on the TSX Venture exchange. Finder fees are payable.

Use of Proceeds is to continue the exploration of the 50% owned Pancho Arias Mineral District in north western Argentina. The funds will be used to drill test two outstanding Cu-Au-Mo porphyries and one high-grade gold system.

* Pancho Arias (2,800m) is a porphyry prospect with historic drill holes that have Cu-Mo values from surface to end of hole. Seven of the ten 1973-4 drill holes outlined a Cu-Mo mineralized corridor that is approximately 900 metres wide and 1,300 metres along strike and is open. The core was not assayed for gold or silver. Pancho Arias outcrops over a large area. Recent geophysics identified a significant chargeability anomaly that is 3,000 metres in diameter at 300 metres below the surface profile of the outcrops.

* Incahuasi (2,000m) is another large-scale porphyry system. A recent geophysical survey identified a near surface chargeability anomaly that is 4,400 metres east west by 1,500 metres north south. The property has no history of drilling. Incahuasi is believed to be an apophysis of the same Miocene magmatic chamber, which is common to Pancho Arias and Las Burras. Las Burras is new Cu-Mo-Au porphyry discovered by Cascadero in June 2011.

* Santa Rosa (1,200m) a high-sulphidation high-grade gold bearing zone with an array of veins over a 2,000 metre by 2,000 metre area. The property adjoins Pancho Arias to the south, west and north. It is believed the source of the gold mineralization is the Pancho Arias porphyry.

The Pancho Arias District has potential to host large tonnage of Cu-Mo-Au mineralization. Three drill rigs are planned as the Company intends to complete the 6,000 metre program by Dec 31-11.
