VANCOUVER, BEITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2012) - Camino Minerals Corporation ("Camino" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:COR) is pleased to announce that a soil geochemical survey is currently underway at the recently optioned El Secreto Gold, Silver and Copper Project ("El Secreto" or the "Project"), located Sinaloa State, Mexico. Over 1,260 samples will be taken in an area approximately 9,000 hectares (34 square miles) in size. The survey is expected to take three months to complete.
"The soil geochemical survey represents the first phase of exploration at El Secreto," said Gordon Davis, Camino's CEO. "We look forward to rapidly advancing El Secreto to the drill stage as we believe it represents a new, exciting discovery opportunity."
About the El Secreto Gold, Silver and Copper Project
Recently consolidated by Arcelia Gold Corp. ("Arcelia"), a private BC company, through staking and the acquisition of privately held claims, El Secreto consists of three mineral concessions encompassing over 12,675 hectares (49 square miles). The Project is located approximately 100 kilometres north-east of Mazatlan, Sinaloa State, and is accessible by paved and gravel roads. The geology and mineralization obtained to date suggests that El Secreto is highly prospective for the discovery of both mesothermal gold-silver vein systems and copper-gold porphyry systems. The Project has never been subject to modern exploration techniques or drilling. Camino has an option to earn up to an 80-per-cent interest in El Secreto from Arcelia.
