/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES /
Quimbaya Gold Inc. (CSE: QIM) (the ‘Company’ or ‘Quimbaya’) is pleased to announce that it has secured four additional exploration properties totalling 8,181 hectares (81.8 sq. km) located in the department of Antioquia, Colombia . These properties consist of: 508718 (4,444 Ha); 508598 (1,307 Ha); 508599 (171 Ha) and 508596 (2,259 Ha), which were acquired through mapping staking from the Colombian government, in proximity to the South and West of the flagship Tahami Project and adjacent to the other Quimbaya’s existing properties in the Segovia-Remedios mining district. A map visualization of the claims can be found below.
Mr. Alexandre P. Boivin , President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company stated: ‘With the addition of these 4 new properties to the portfolio, the company significantly strengthens its presence within the prolific Colombian gold belt. The district contains numerous gold occurrences that have seen only limited modern exploration and represent a prospective opportunity for the potential of discovering significant new gold deposits particularly at along the Otú Fault and the Nus-El Bagre Trend’.
The Otú fault system forms a North-South corridor over 100 km from Segovia-Remedios in the South to Nechi in the North. The fault is located approximately 2km west of Quimbaya’s new claims 508718 (4,444 Ha) and 508,598 (1,307 Ha). High-grade gold mineralisation occurs along the entire strike length of the Otú Fault in quartz veins and affects Paleozoic greenstone rocks in contact with Diorites of Segovia Batholith. Along the Otú corridor trend, large-scale mining is active and numerous small-scale underground mines have been developed throughout the district and where approximately 329,000 oz of gold are produced annually.
The El Nus-el Bagre is a regional, subparallel mineralized trend of the Otú System, running alongside and east of the Segovia Mining district. Primary gold occurrences and many alluvial operations are documented. The newly stake claim 508596 (2,259 Ha) is located on the El Nus fault of which Quimbaya now controls approximately 10 km of favorable ground for gold along such fault.
In the past, minimal exploration work has been done on the properties, which are easily accessible via secondary and tertiary roads, thus facilitating the implementation of exploration work.
