Camino Extends High Grade Mineralization at Adriana and Katty Zones

VANCOUVER, Sep. 14, 2017 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --

TSX Venture Symbol: COR

Minerals Corporation ("Camino" or the "Company") (COR: TSX-V) is pleased to report results for four diamond drill holes completed on the Adriana Zone and four holes on the Katty Zone at its Los Chapitos Project ("Chapitos"), located in southern Peru.

Select drill highlights for the Adriana Zone include:

    --  DCH-025 intersected 1.43% copper over 16.3 meters, including
        2.62% copper over 6.7meters;

    --  DCH-027 intersected 1.06% copper over 17.10 meters, including
        2.91% copper over 3.0 meters.


Select drill highlights for the Katty Zone include:

    --  DCH-017 intersected 1.30% copper over 18.5 meters, including
        2.20% copper over 8.8 meters;

    --  DCH-020 intersected 0.78% copper over 20.7 meters, including
        1.17% copper over 5.7 meters.


Drill holes DCH-025 and DCH-027 were drilled from Pad 2 at the Adriana Zone to test up dip extent of the mineralization found in drill hole DCH-019, which intersected 0.97% copper over 42.0 meters, including 3.31% copper over 7.5 meters. Both of these holes intersected high-grade copper mineralization and successfully extended the high grade mineralization 100 meters closer to surface. All six holes drilled on this section intersected both structurally controlled sulphide mineralization as well as stratigraphically controlled magnetite replacement mineralization. The structurally controlled mineralization is interpreted to be the feeder zone for the Adriana copper system, is dominantly sulphide mineralization and has been traced for 200 meters down dip, ranges up to 7.0 meters in width, has average grades between 2.48% copper and 5.01% copper and is open along strike and at depth. The magnetite replacement mineralization is dominantly copper oxides, extends up to 150 meters away from the feeder zone and is open along trend to the northwest and southeast.

The Adriana Zone is currently defined by 24 drill holes totaling over 7,800 meters. It now measures over 450 meters long by 200 meters wide, and remains open along strike to the northwest and southeast and at depth.

At the Katty Zone, holes DCH-017 and DCH-020 extended the near surface mineralization a further 50 meters to the southeast and to depth. The mineralization has been tested by 11 drill holes totaling 2,250 meters, which define an area measuring 125 meters long, up to 75 meters wide and to depths of 100 meters below surface. The copper oxide mineralization is found in structurally controlled breccias and transitions into sulphide mineralization at depth. The zone is open along trend to the southeast and at depth.

Work continues on the project with step out drilling underway at the Adriana Zone and additional drilling planned for the Katty Zone. The Company also expects to receive authorization in October to initiate field activities at the Atajo Zone located on a separate trend six kilometers to the southwest of the Adriana Zone. The Company recently received approval of its environmental assessment and negotiated a community access agreement as part of the permit application for drilling at the Atajo Zone.

Kenneth C. McNaughton, M.A.Sc., P.Eng., is the Qualified Person (QP) responsible for the Chapitos project.

    (1)True thickness to be determined.

    (2)All samples were submitted for preparation and analysis by ALS Chemex at its facilities in Lima, Peru. All samples
    were analyzed using multi-digestion with ICP finish and fire assay with AA finish for gold. Samples over 1%
    copper were reanalyzed using four acid digestion with an ore grade ICP finish.  Mineralized samples were
    analyzed for acid soluble copper by being agitated at room temperature in a 5% sulphuric acid solution with the
    copper content measured by AA. One in 20 samples was blank, one in 20 was a standard sample, and one in 20
    samples had a sample cut from assay rejects assayed as a field duplicate at ALS Chemex in Lima, Peru.
