April 12, 2011, Calgary, Alberta: Antioquia Gold Inc. (TSX-V: AGD) is pleased to announce that a second diamond drill has been added to the ongoing 2011 drill program at the Company's flagship Cisneros Project in Antioquia, Colombia.
The 2011 drill program, announced in a press release dated February 22, 2011, has been successfully extending known surface occurrences along strike and to depth at the Pacho Luis and Manuela concessions. To date, over 1,800 metres have been drilled in seven drill holes on three separate targets. Core logging is indicating several zones of wide sulphide mineralization at the Papi, Cerro and Nus target areas. Sampling of these promising zones has been carried out and samples have been sent to the laboratory for analysis with the results pending.
The second diamond drill is part of the expanded exploration program that was announced in a press release dated March 25, 2011. The second drill will be primarily focused on targets within the Guayabito concessions; with the objective of further delineating the Guayabito and Bolo structures along strike and down plunge, while testing additional similar structures identified by ground IP and airborne geophysics. Employing the second diamond drill allows the first drill to continue delineating the new discoveries at Papi, Cerro and Nus mentioned above.
The data and interpretation of the previously announced 1,500 line kilometre heli-borne geophysical (magnetometer and radiometric) survey at the Cisneros Project (refer to press release dated February 17, 2010) is now in the hands of Antioquia's geologists and is being studied to identify further targets across the entire Cisneros Project area.
