Colibri Reports on Soil Sampling Program at Evelyn Gold Project in Caborca, Sonora, Mexico

Colibri Reports on Soil Sampling Program at Evelyn Gold Project in Caborca, 
Sonora, Mexico 
VANCOUVER, May 30, 2013 /CNW/ - Colibri Resource Corporation ("Colibri" or the 
"Company") (TSX.V-CBI)is pleased to provide an update of exploration 
activities at the 506 hectare Evelyn Gold Project, near the town of Caborca in 
Sonora, Mexico. Evelyn in located approximately 13 kilometres to the northeast 
of the Noche Buena Gold Mine (Minera Penmont JV - Fresnillo PLC 56%, Newmont 
USA Ltd. 44%), and about 20 kilometres to the northwest of the Company's 
Colibri/Pitaya Gold Project. The conceptual target at Evelyn is orogenic-style 
gold mineralization, similar to other projects in the Caborca area. The 
project has small scale historic artisanal gold workings on northeast and 
northwest-trending vein structures in altered and locally schistose volcanic 
host rock. 
A total of 703 surface soil samples were collected in two campaigns at the 
Evelyn Project. The sample lines are oriented north-south and spaced 100 
metres apart. Samples were collected every 50 to 100 metres along these lines, 
and at an average 30 centimetre depth. 
Gold values range up to 2.27 grams per tonne, with greater than 10% of the 
samples analyzing over 50 parts per billion (ppb) gold. The table below 
summarizes the distribution of gold values. The sampling highlights strong, 
widespread anomalous gold values over much of the Evelyn property. Please 
refer to the gold geochemistry map on the Company website. 


      Number of   Gold Assay
       Samples   Values (ppb)
           116     <5
           397     > 5 - 25
           113     > 25 - 50
            47     > 50 - 100
            16     > 100 - 200
            14     > 200

TOTAL      703    
                  

Sample Protocol

Samples from the two campaigns were analyzed in different laboratories. 370 
samples from the first program were delivered to Inspectorate Laboratories' 
preparation facility in Hermosillo, Mexico and analyzed in Vancouver, B.C. 
using a GENX 30 package. This includes fire assay for gold with atomic 
absorption (AA) finish, cold vapor analysis by AA for mercury, and 29 element 
induced coupling plasma (ICP) analyses for remaining elements. Inspectorate 
Laboratories' quality management system complies with International Standards 
ISO 9001:2008. 333 samples from the second campaign were prepared in Acme 
Analytical Laboratory's Caborca, Mexico preparation lab and analyzed in 
Vancouver, B.C. using a 1F02 package. This includes an aqua regia digestion 
and 37-element ICP-MS 'ultratrace' analysis. The gold analysis is done on a 15 
gram pulp portion to try to minimize nugget effect. Acme Analytical's quality 
management system complies with International Standards ISO 9001:2008. Both 
laboratories meet all established criteria as related to reporting 
requirements for mining and exploration companies under National Instrument 
NI-43-101.
