DRI.v Dorato GOLD GOLD GOLD of the Incas.
Dorato Resources Inc. ("Dorato") is mineral exploration company focused on the highly prospective Cordillera del Condor Gold District in northern Peru and adjacent to the border with Ecuador -- one of the most important gold-bearing districts in the region since pre-Incan times.
Modern exploration on the Ecuadorian side of the border has successfully delineated a number of world-class gold and copper deposits including Kinross Gold's Fruta del Norte gold deposit with inferred resources of 13.6 million contained ounces of gold averaging 7.23 g/t gold. The Peruvian portion of the Cordillera, while sharing key geological features and stratigraphy, has remained almost entirely unexplored...until now.
Dorato, through a series of option agreements, has the right to wholly acquire an extensive land package of approximately 800 square kilometres -- providing the Company a highly strategic position in this emergent gold district. Dorato is well funded and possesses experienced management with a proven track record.
Dorato Resources Inc., through a series of option agreements, has the right to become the first mover on the Peruvian side of the Cordillera del Condor Belt with a highly prospective and unexplored land package of approximately 800 square kilometres in area.
2008 Exploration Program
Extensive surface and underground sampling screened approximately 80% of the Taricori Block with almost 4,000 samples --- remaining results still forthcoming. Mapped and sampled 2,600 metres of historic underground working --- providing a unique three-dimensional model of the Taricori gold system.
Approximately 700-line kms of airborne Mag-EM survey was also undertaken on the Taricori Block highlighting multiple high-priority anomalies --- demonstrating the highly permissive Taricori gold system remains open in all directions.
Vein channel sampling (n=168) from historic workings returned a mean grade of 10.9 g/t Au and 134 g/t Ag, including a maximum grade of 132.2 g/t Au and 1,669 g/t Ag. Channel sampling (n=195) of the wall rock gave a mean grade of 0.6 g/t Au and 16.5 g/t Ag indicating significant bulk-tonnage potential beyond the high-grade vein mineralization.
The Taricori alteration and mineral system is interpreted to be a minimum of 2.5km by 1.5km in area and has significant depth extent based on sampling of historic underground workings.
