Camino Minerals Corporation: Drilling Underway at El Secreto

Camino Minerals Corporation: Drilling Underway at El Secreto Gold,
Silver and Copper Project 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Camino
Minerals Corporation ("Camino" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:COR) is
pleased to announce that drilling is underway at the El Secreto Gold,
Silver and Copper Project ("El Secreto" or the "Project"), located in
Sinaloa State, Mexico. The 2,000 metre reverse circulation drill
program commenced over the weekend and is expected to take up to four
weeks to complete. This is the first ever drill program to be carried
out at El Secreto.  
Drilling initially will focus on two target areas: the El Secreto
Zone and the Carrizal Area. The El Secreto Zone, located in the
northeastern part of the property, was delineated by a soil
geochemical survey, which outlined a 1.5 km by 2 km area of anomalous
gold and silver values. Rock samples collected from the El Secreto
Zone have returned values as high as 13.3 g/t gold and 187 g/t
silver. The Carrizal Area, located 6-km to the west of the El Secreto
Zone, contains a number of mineralized veins. Rock samples collected
from the Carrizal Area have returned values as high as 8.8 g/t gold,
316.0 g/t silver and 5.1% copper. Northeast-trending epithermal veins
that cross cut granodioritic intrusions are present at both the El
Secreto Zone and the Carrizal Area. The veins vary from one to five
metres in thickness and from several hundred metres to more than one
kilometre in length.  
El Secreto is situated along the western edge of the Sierra Madre
Occidental in a structural setting similar to Primero Mining
Corporation's San Dimas Mine, located 40-km to the east. San Dimas
produced 102,000 gold equivalent ounces in 2011. Primero recently
announced plans (see Primero's news release dated October 15, 2012)
to increase mine throughput from the current 1,925 tonnes per day to
2,500 tonnes per day by the end of the first quarter of 2014. This
expansion will allow for an average production target of 160,000 gold
equivalent ounces per year over the next five years. The San Dimas
district, which has been mined since 1757, contains a series of
epithermal gold-silver veins. Historical production from the San
Dimas district is estimated at 11 million ounces of gold and 582
million ounces of silver. 
"The structural setting, proximity to San Dimas and exploration
results received to-date have only reinforced our belief that El
Secreto is highly prospective for the discovery of epithermal vein
systems," said Gordon Davis, Camino's Chairman and CEO. "We look
forward to reporting the results of the drill program in the new
year." 
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 12,000 hectares (49 square miles). The Project is located
approximately 100 km northeast 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 epithermal gold-silver vein 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.
