Romarco Commences Drilling At Pinos Gold District,
ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSXV: R) is pleased to announce that its exploration drilling program has
commenced at the Pinos Gold District in Mexico. The 20 hole program
provides for 5000 meters (16,400 ft.) of core drilling. This exploration
assay data will be utilized to elevate the preliminary mineral
resources. This comprehensive drilling program was developed to test
the deeper reaches of known veins on the Cinco Estrellas system of the Pinos
property. Romarco�s work has illustrated that vein grade improves with
depth. Most Cinco Estrellas mine areas test material down to >150 meters,
while 2007 drilling and underground sampling shows that grades actually
improve at depths >150 meters.
Historically Spanish and Cornish miners conducted operations on this
vein systems of the Pinos Gold District. However, they were forced to mine
only the relatively shallow portions (up to 100 meters) of the veins due to
limitations of the equipment that was available to them in those
historic times. By utilizing modern equipment, mining the veins to
significantly greater depth is possible.
The drilling contractor is Segeomex, based out of San Luis Potosi,
Mexico. Samples will be sent to ALS Chemex for assaying.
This program is currently being overseen and reviewed by Romarco�s Mexico
Team, including Romarco�s Qualified Person on the project Tommy Thompson,
Senior Consultant for Romarco as well Chris Candee, geologic consultant and 4
