Yamana Gold, Inc. Announces Start of Drilling At Atlas Gold - Silver Project, Gorbea Joint Venture, Northern Chile

Mirasol Resources Ltd. announced that Yamana Gold Inc. (Yamana) has commenced an aggressive southern hemisphere summer exploration program at the Atlas gold - silver project. The planned program at Atlas includes phase 1 drilling of a planned 7 priority holes, totaling over 4,000 m, as well as expanding by up to 30 line-km the existing coverage of the deep-penetrating IP geophysical survey. Additional trenching is planned to test key gold - silver rock chip and covered geophysical anomalies at the project. Atlas phase 1 drilling, initiated on October 15, will comprise a mix of diamond core and reverse circulation drilling to test a range of geochemical and geophysical targets including: Atlas Gold Zone: Surface rock chip sampling has returned assays ranging up to 50.3 g/t Au and 56.9 g/t Ag, and trench results of up to 1.67 g/t Au over 14.9 m associated with vuggy silica - alunite breccia; Atlas Silver Zone: Trenching has outlined a section grading 39.9 g/t Ag over 55.9 m, and individual samples of up to 542 g/t Ag, over 0.2 m, associated with hydrothermal breccia bodies; Pampa Zone: Rock-chip float sampling has returned assays of up to 2.91 g/t Au and 421 g/t Ag, and recent geophysical surveys by Yamana have outlined a resistivity anomaly under shallow cover, with dimensions of over 1 km in length and which is potentially associated with hydrothermal silica accumulations; Escondida Target: Sampling of breccia and vein float samples, thought to have come from a nearby, late gravel-covered source, have returned assays of ranging up to 2,470 g/t Ag; Oculto Trend: A Yamana IP geophysical survey during July expanded the dimensions of a large, covered, resistivity anomaly to over 2 km in strike.
