MOUNT PEARL, NEWFOUNDLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/14 --
Cornerstone Capital Resources Inc. ("Cornerstone" or "the Company")
(TSX VENTURE: CGP)(OTCBB: CTNXF)(FRANKFURT: GWN)(BERLIN: GWN)
announces that it has received notice from SolGold Plc electing to
increase their equity ownership in Exploraciones Novoming S.A.
("ENSA") to 85%.
SolGold will hold 85% interest in ENSA, the Ecuadorian subsidiary of
Cornerstone that holds 100% of the Cascabel concession. SolGold must
subscribe to CAD$250,000 of shares in Cornerstone at $0.10 per share,
subject to TSX-V approval, and give Cornerstone CAD$100,000 of
SolGold shares to increase the ownership to 85%.
The Cascabel project is located in north-western Ecuador in an
under-explored northern section of the richly endowed Andean Copper
Belt, 60 km northeast of the undeveloped NI 43-101 compliant inferred
resource of 982 million tons at 0.89% Cu Junin copper project.
Drill Hole CSD-13-005 Update
CSD-13-005 has been terminated at 1,370 metres due to difficult
ground conditions. Assays from 869.5m to 1,194m are expected within a
week, and assays from 1,194m to 1,330m have been dispatched to the
assay lab and results are expected within 10 days. The last 40m will
be sent to the lab shortly.
Yvan Crepeau, MBA, P.Geo., Cornerstone's Vice President, Exploration
and a qualified person in accordance with National Instrument 43-101,
is responsible for supervising the exploration program at the
Cascabel project and has reviewed and approved the information
contained in this news release.
Logging, sampling and assaying
Holes referred to in this release were or are being drilled using
HTW, NTW and NQ core sizes (respectively 7.1, 5.6 and 4.8 cm
diameter). Geotechnical measurements such as core recovery,
fracturing, rock quality designations (RQD's), specific density and
photographic logging are performed systematically prior to assaying.
The core is logged, magnetic susceptibility measured and key
alteration minerals identified using an on-site portable
spectrometer. Core is then sawed in half at Cornerstone's core
logging facility and half of the core is delivered by Cornerstone
employees for preparation at Acme Analytical Laboratories (ACME)
affiliate laboratory in Cuenca. Core samples are prepared crushing 1
kg to 80% passing 2 mm (10 mesh), splitting 250 g and pulverizing to
85% passing 0.075 mm (200 mesh) (ACME code R200-250). Prepared
samples are then shipped to ACME in Vancouver, Canada where samples
are assayed for a multi-element suite (ACME code 1E, 0.25g split,
4-acid digestion, ICP-ES finish). Over limit results for Ag (greater
than 100 g/t), Cu, Pb and Zn (each one greater than 1%) are
systematically re-assayed (ACME code 7 TD1 or 7 TD2, 4-acid
digestion, ICP-ES finish). Gold is assayed using a 30 g split, Fire
Assay (FA) and AA or ICP-ES finish (ACME code G601).
Quality assurance / Quality control (QA/QC)
The ACME affiliate preparation facility in Cuenca was audited by
Cornerstone prior to the start of the drilling program and ACME is an
ISO 9001:2008 qualified assayer that performs and makes available
internal assaying controls. Duplicates, certified blanks and
standards are systematically used (1 control sample every 15 samples)
as part of Cornerstone's QA/QC program. Rejects, a 100 g pulp for
each core sample and the remaining half-core are stored for future
use and controls.
