Casablanca Mining Secures Additional Funding for Its Los Pinos Hard Rock Gold Property

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CASABLANCA MINING (OTCQX: CUAU) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement for the funding necessary to complete construction at its Los Pinos hard rock gold project in Rancagua, Chile.

A 4km access road to the mine has been completed, the staging platform is complete and the company is currently preparing the entrance to the mine. Once this is complete, it is anticipated that the mining operation will begin.

The mining property includes 300 hectares called, "Los Pinos 1-30" and 100 hectares called "Teresita 1-20." The properties are in the Valley of Cachapoal, on the plateau that lies to the West of the village of Coltauco, 700 meters above sea level, a distance of 55 km from the city of Rancagua, approximately 150 km from Santiago.

This mine was mined in the late 1940s until 1949 when, due to a landslide, it was capped and abandoned. In the 1980s it was rediscovered, and is now constituted and current on its claim maintenance requirements.

The mine covers an area of 400 hectares and corresponds to a first vein which shows significant potential for gold. The expectations for the mine are derived from the altered area and the knowledge of a second parallel vein, which shows more potential than the surface gold anomalies of the first vein, and increases the mine's potential reserves substantially.

Casablanca Mining CEO, Juan Carlos Camus, said, "We intend to do both the surface and interior geology of the mine once we have entered the mine through a new tunnel. When we complete the entrance and stabilize the surrounding area, we will begin to exploit the mine."
