Oroco Announces 425 Meter Stepout to Mineralized Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2008) - Oroco Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OCO) is pleased to announce the results from a surface trenching program on the Cerro Prieto property, located in Sonora State, Mexico.

Highlights:

- Trench cut 425 meters north of current drilling exposes mineralized zone of comparable thickness and grade to that observed in holes drilled in Phase One drill program.

- 163.4 g/t Ag, 0.327 g/t Au, 0.34% Pb and 0.30% Zn over true thickness of 13.5 meters within a 36.3 meter section averaging 79.7 g/t Ag, 0.401 g/t Au, 0.32% Pb and 0.47% Zn.

The trench cut what is believed to be an extension of the Cerro Prieto mineralized zone 425 meters north of the current 6,000 meter Phase One diamond drill program. The 425 meter strike length between the most northerly drill section of that program and the trench is virtually unexplored with the exception of a few small historical pits that partially exposed minor veining and alteration.

The trench exposes veining and brecciated veining comparable to that seen in drill core from the mineralized zone in the area of current drilling to the south. The assays for the full length of the sampled trench averages 0.401 g/t Au, 79.7 g/t Ag, 0.32% Pb and 0.47% Zn over a true thickness of 36.3 meters. Within that section, a higher grade silver zone assayed 163.4 g/t Ag, 0.327 g/t Au, 0.34% Pb and 0.30% Zn over a true thickness of 13.5 meters. Also within the trench, a separate section of higher grade lead and zinc averages 0.57 g/t Au, 25.2 g/t Ag, 0.57% Pb and 1.30% Zn over a true thickness of 6.0 meters. Mineralization is open on either end of the trench and a program of detailed trenching, mapping and sampling has begun both to the north and south of the trench.

The company is pleased to note the consistency of the true thickness and average grade of the trench with that of the Phase One drill hole intersections for which assays have been previously reported. The trench is located on section 1075 N, 425 meters north of the northern most drill section and 925 meters north of the southern-most drill section of the current drill program. For a plan view map showing the location of the drill hole sections and the trench, and a longitudinal section showing the drill hole intercepts, please refer to Oroco's website at http://www.orocoresourcecorp.com/Cer...o-Project.html.

The Cerro Prieto polymetallic project is located in Sonora State, Mexico and consists of three mineral concessions totaling 2,508 hectares. Oroco holds a 100% interest in these concessions. In April of this year a Phase 1 drill program commenced and at the completion of the this program (6,000 meters in approximately 25 holes) the mineralized zone will have been drill tested vertically at 100 meter centers along a strike length of at least 600 meters to a depth of 400 meters allowing the calculation of an initial estimation of resources.

Oroco Intersects 0.214 g/t Au, 361.8 g/t Ag, 2.40% Pb and 4.76% Zn over 11.2 Meters

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – June 16, 2008. Oroco Resource Corp. (OCO-TSX.V) is pleased to report results from its drill program on the Cerro Prieto program in Sonora State, Mexico.
Highlights of the drilling include:


  • Drill hole CP001 intersected 15.0 meters (8.3 m true thickness) averaging 2.449 g/t Au, 3.2 g/t Ag, 0.24% Pb and 0.56% Zn
  • Drill hole CP002 intersected 11.2 meters (7.0 m true thickness) averaging 0.214 g/t Au, 361.8 g/t Ag, 2.40% Pb and 4.76% Zn

To date a total of 1,426.8 meters has been completed in six diamond drill holes. The holes have been targeted to confirm and expand a 725 meter long mineralized zone previously outlined by Morgain Minerals in 1998 and 1999. Morgain calculated a resource of 8.5 million tons with a 4.4 g/t Au equivalent (the resource was calculated prior to NI43-101).
The mineralized zone at Cerro Prieto consists of a shear zone up to 60 meters thick with an abundance of quartz veining, brecciation, stringer sulphides and oxides. Often, the bottom contact of the shear zone consists of a brecciated, mineralized quartz vein up to 10 meters thick. Oroco geologists previously sampled an underground adit along the mineralized zone that assayed an average of 3.45 g/t Au, 6.22 g/t Ag, 0.54% Pb and 1.27% Zn over a sampled strike length of 408 metres on the 800 level.
The locations of the six completed holes and the next ten planned holes are shown on the longitudinal section on the Oroco website (http://www.orocoresourcecorp.com/images/Longitudinal-Section.jpg ).
Assays have been received for the first two holes and are presented in the following table.

Hi all,

I would expect news on drill results to be back shortly as three holes were already complete and sent to the lab May 21st as per the companies last news release.

Something I liked in their last news release that seemed to go unnoticed in the market was:

"All three completed holes have intersected the targeted structural zone as shown on the longitudinal section on Oroco's web site: (http://caprice.websitewelcome.com/%7Eoroco/images/Longitudinal-Section.jpg)."

Things are starting to shape up with this one and its only a matter of time before the market wakes up to OCO's property and its potential.

Cheers,

Oroco Resource Corp.: Initial Drill Holes Intersect Mineralized Structure at Cerro Prieto Mine
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 21, 2008) - Oroco Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OCO) is pleased to report on the progress of its Phase One drilling program recently initiated within the area of the past producing Cerro Prieto Mine in Sonora, Mexico. The 6,000 metre diamond drill program is intended to confirm historical results and test below and beyond the historical workings.

Since the commencement of drilling on April 22nd, three holes have been completed and the fourth is nearing completion for a total of 941 metres drilled. All three completed holes have intersected the targeted structural zone as shown on the longitudinal section on Oroco's web site: (http://caprice.websitewelcome.com/%7Eoroco/images/Longitudinal-Section.jpg).

The first hole drilled, CP001, twinned drill hole SF-11 of the 1998 Morgain Minerals Inc. drill program. Morgain's drill hole SF-11 returned a 70.1 metre intersection (35.0 metres true width) averaging 2.69 g/t Au, 5.0 g/t Ag, 0.30% Pb, and 1.02% Zn, including a 15.3 metre intersection (7.7 metres true width) averaging 6.81 g/t Au, 9.1 g/t Ag, 0.35% Pb, and 1.16% Zn. Although assays have not been returned for Oroco's CP001, the thickness of the mineralized zone is comparable to that reported in Morgain's drill hole SF-11.

Oroco's second hole, CP002, intersected the mineralized zone 100 metres northwest of, and 100 metres deeper than CP001. The third hole, CP003, intersected the mineralized zone 100 metres northwest of, and at the same elevation as CP001. Both holes intersected significant zones of mineralization (+40 metres apparent thickness). The fourth hole, CP004, is targeted to intersect the mineralized zone 100 metres northwest of, and at the same elevation as CP003.

The drilling is being completed by Canmex Diamond Drilling S.A. de C.V. of Mazatlan and is being supervised in the field by geologist Antonio Montante of San Luis Potosi.

Split core is transported to the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Hermosillo where it is crushed and pulverized, with pulps sent to the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver, B.C. for assaying. Assays for holes CP001, CP002, and CP003 are pending. Oroco has a standard Quality Assurance/Quality Control program in place to ensure sample security and assay accuracy.

Oroco is a Canadian mineral exploration company which holds a 100% interest in six mineral concessions in Mexico. The company is initially focused on its Sonora concessions, comprising the Cerro Prieto Mine and the nearby 2,508 hectare Cerro Prieto North concession. In addition, Oroco holds three mining concessions in the state of Guerrero totaling 293 hectares.

Oroco Announces First Sampling Results From Cerro Prieto North Property
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - Oroco Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OCO) is pleased to announce the results of a recent mapping and sampling program on its 100% owned Cerro Prieto North claim, part of its Cerro Prieto project in Sonora, Mexico.

Highlights of the sampling include:

1) 2.11 g/t Au and 142.0 g/t Ag over 0.6 meters

2) 2.18 g/t Au and 134.0 g/t Ag over 1.2 meters

3) 1.70 g/t Au, 115.0 g/t Ag, 2.26% Pb and 3.17% Zn over 1.0 meter

The southern boundary of the 2,508 ha Cerro Prieto North claim is located approximately two and one-half kilometers north of the historical Cerro Prieto Mine, situated on Oroco's San Felix and San Francisco concessions, where a drill program is currently underway. The northwest striking structural zone can be traced geologically across 1.7 kilometres of strike length of the San Felix and San Francisco concessions and onto the Cerro Prieto North concession. It outcrops on the Cerro Prieto North property over a strike length of approximately 300 meters starting approximately 2.6 kilometres north of the property boundary. In total, the structure has a potential strike length of 4.8 kilometers on the Cerro Prieto North property.

The geological structure in this location is relatively steeply dipping and intersects relatively flat lying sediments and volcanics. An Oroco geologist recently began sampling and mapping the showings and general geology of the area. Results from the sampling along the 300 meter zone are shown in Table 1, below. Locations of the samples can be seen on the company's web site at www.orocoresourcecorp.com. Highly anomalous gold and silver values are accompanied by anomalous to highly anomalous lead and zinc values in the majority of the samples and indicate mineralization similar to that seen in the historical workings at the Cerro Prieto Mine. Samples FCO 001 and FCO 002, FCO 005 and FC 006, FC 008 and FC 009, and FC 015 and FC 016 represent contiguous samples taken across the total width of the mineralized zone.

EXPLORATION, DISCOVERY, AND DEVELOPMENT OF MINERAL WEALTH IN MINING FRIENDLY MEXICO

Introduction


Oroco Resource Corp. (TSX-v: OCO) is a new listing which started trading Tuesday March 18th 2008. Unlike many new companies which only have a single property Oroco will have several high quality properties with known mineralization, including a significant historical resource, and considerable bluesky potential. In Mexico work can be done year round and the steady news flow so important for a junior exploration/development company will be forthcoming on a regular basis. Oroco Resources has pulled off an exceptionally rare feat for a junior company in that they have managed to pick up exceptional projects at basement bargain prices in an extremely mining friendly country.

With Oroco's recently completed $0.55 IPO the company is cashed up ($2,700,000.00 in the treasury) and fully diluted will have 35,145,281 shares outstanding (an additional $5.6 million will be realized upon full dilution). Management and strong institutional investors hold a large part of these shares with management’s shares locked up for a considerable length of time. Oroco has strong brokerage support. The public float will be fairly small at around 9,000,000 shares but will be large enough to provide liquidity to get the stock trading nicely.

Oroco's initial main focus will be the delineation and development of economic mineralization at the historic Cerro Prieto Mine. The goal is to prove up a mine that will have a long life and will be an economically robust project.

Between its three 100% owned concessions Oroco now controls almost 6.5 kilometers of strike length potential of the geologic structures that hosts the Cerro Prieto Mine, with considerable area yet to be explored utilizing modern exploration practices. The project comes with an historic resource calculated by Morgain Minerals in 1998 of +8 million tons of polymetallic mineralization with an average grade of 4.4 g/ton gold equivalent. The resource was developed prior to NI 43-101, but is based on a recently conducted 23 hole reverse circulation (RC) drill program. This program was confined to the area of historic mining activities at the Cerro Prieto mine on just 800 meters of strike length of the geologic structure. Confirmation drilling in Oroco’s phase one exploration program will test within the area of the historic mine as well at depth where mineralization is open and a phase two drill program will test north and south along strike.

Oroco's secondary focus is the 193 hectare Xochipala concessions and the newly acquired 100 hectare Salvador concession in Guerrero State Mexico. The Xochipala Property is located within the former Morelos National Mining Reserve, which is part of a wider area that has come to be known as the Guerrero Gold Belt (the "GGB") and includes the most promising and growing gold reserves in Mexico.

As you can see Oroco is not a one trick pony. Not only does it have an advanced project, the Cerro Prieto Mine, with historical resources and an upside potential to expand this resource through comprehensive modern exploration programs, the company also has blue sky exploration projects which give leverage to possibly new exciting discoveries in the best gold producing area of Mexico where there are existing mines owned by majors and lots of activity on the exploration side. If it’s true the best place to find a mine is beside an existing mine then this is definitely the right neighborhood.

Management

Oroco has a strong management team. The company is very capably led by President and director Stephen Leahy, a no nonsense businessman who has been involved in the mining industry for many years, most recently as founder, then as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of North American Tungstun. Oroco has knowledgeable, talented, experienced directors on its board who have been involved with all aspects of the mining business for decades and are very well respected in the business. Robert Friesen has more than 40 years of experience in mining and mineral exploration including seventeen years with the Noranda Group, mainly as Chief Geologist of the Geco Mine in Ontario and the Samatosum Mine in B.C. He also has five years of experience with Teck Exploration Ltd., a subsidiary of Teck Cominco Ltd., mainly as a Senior Geologist. Ken Thorsen, BSc Geological Engineering, P Eng. has in excess of 40 years experience in mining and mining exploration. Prior to retirement from a 21 year career with Teck Cominco Ltd., Mr. Thorsen held several senior positions including a two year term as President of Teck Exploration Ltd. In this position he was responsible for administration of 17 exploration offices and all field operations of the exploration department of Teck Corporation.

CERRO PRIETO PROJECT SUMMARY

The Cerro Prieto Project is located about 50 miles southeast of the town of Magdalena, Sonora, Mexico in a prolific region for mineral exploration, development and extraction. Magdalena lies on paved Mexican Highway No. 15 some 60 miles south of the town of Nogales, which is located on the Arizona-Mexico border. The project is contained within three concessions. The San Francisco concession of 10 hectares hosts the workings of the Cerro Prieto Mine. Surrounding this is the San Felix concession of 205 hectares. To the north is the 2,508 hectare Cerro Prieto North Concession which is separated from the San Felix Concession by approximately 1.7 kilometers.

Oroco Resource Corp. has acquired the rights to the San Felix and San Francisco concessions through an option agreement with the Panamanian company Minera Polimetalicos Mexicanos. Oroco has paid $2.5 million, satisfied all its obligations, and now owns a 100% interest in the two concessions, subject to a 2% net smelter return (NSR). The Cerro Prieto North concession was acquired by staking and is 100% owned by Oroco. Without the burden of future property payments Oroco will be able to concentrate its resources on exploration and development and shareholders will not be faced with uncertain levels of dilution because of the need to raise funds to meet these payments.

The Cerro Prieto mine operated from 1906 to 1912, at a rate of 500 - 750 tons per day, reportedly with grades of 15 g/t gold and 50-60 g/t silver. The mine closed in 1912 at the time of the Mexican revolution.

“Mineralization (Pb-Zn-Au-Ag-Mo) at the Cerro Prieto Mine is contained in veins within an approximately 25 m thick major shear zone which cuts all units from Jurassic to Lower Tertiary in age. Within this shear zone are contained hanging wall and footwall veins, both of which are one to three m thick and dip steeply, as well as a series of secondary veins, stringers zones and silicification, ranging up to 40 cm thick, which together with the major veins produce a continuous mineralized zone of 6 m to in excess of 30 m thick. This principal structure is a regional structure that can be traced for approximately 10 km north and south of the mine with approximately 6.5 km of strike length potential contained on Oroco’s concessions. At the mine site the structure strikes 350° and dips vertical to 80°. Known mineralization extends from surface to below the lowest level of the historic workings approximately 335m below, and is open at depth, to the north and to the south.

The Project is interpreted to be a strong mesothermal mineralizing system no older than Tertiary in age. A younger epithermal mineralizing system, containing higher grades of gold, may have been injected into the same structure at a later date which would account for the depth of gold mineralization, from surface down to 1050 Level, a minimum of 300 metres elevation difference.” (from Oroco’s corporate literature)

Oroco has completed surface mapping of the structure in the vicinity of the mine as well as on the company’s property to the north. The geologic structure on Cerro Prieto North has been confirmed as mineralized and contains an historical mine working.

A preliminary reserve estimate based on the assay results of 23 RC drill holes and underground crosscuts was carried out by Morgain Minerals. In its 1998 Annual Report Morgain Minerals reported a “bulk underground resource” of 7.06 million tons with an average grade of 4.4 g/ton equivalent and an “open pit resource” 1.39 million tons grading 2.47 g/ton gold. Morgain’s drilling was confined to the area of historical workings and did not test to depth, or along strike to the north and south of the historical workings where mineralization is open.

The gold, silver, lead and zinc values were converted to grams of gold/ton equivalent for investors who wished to have a quick comparison. Note molybdenum is not factored into the calculations and also note historical prices were used which do not compare well to today’s prices.

The exploration program for Oroco Resource Corp. is preliminary in nature and the Company does not have sufficient data to outline a reserve or resource as indicated under National Instrument 43-101. However, based on the historical data there is good potential to considerably expand upon the world class economic resource of Au-Ag-Pb-Zn-Mo that already exists at the Cerro Prieto Mine Project, both within the current mine workings, along strike to the north and south, and at depth below the current mine workings.

XOCHIPALA PROPERTY SUMMARY

“The "Celia Generosa" and "Celia Gene" claims optioned by Oroco, through its Mexican subsidary Minera de Xochipala S.A. de C.V., cover the central 193 hectares of the Xochipala intrusive and associated hydrothermal systems. The claims are located within the southeast extreme of the former Morelos National Reserve, a 49,400 hectare reserve which includes the most promising and growing gold reserves in Mexico. This region encompasses a northwest trend of intrusions with associated gold bearing iron skarn deposits and is part of a wider area which has come to be known as the Guerrero Gold Belt (the “GGB”).

The GGB is currently the focus of aggressive exploration, delineation, development, and mining by Canadian and Mexican majors. Teck Cominco, Goldcorp and Grupo Mexico are exploring and delineating gold reserves in the GGB and to date have discovered in excess of 12 million ounces of gold. Regionally, several multi million ounce gold deposits related to skarns along the peripheries of felsic to intermediate intrusions have recently been identified. These include the El Limon deposit as well as the Nukay and Todos Santos deposits, and approximately two kilometres from the Xochipala Project boundary, Goldcorp’s Los Filos-El Bermejal mine, is forecast to produce 280,000 ounces of gold in 2008.

Various surface manifestations at Xochipala (Loma del Tigre, Huacapita III, Mina Vieja-Xocoite targets) exhibit potential to generate >1,000,000 ounces of gold from high-grade mineralization in chimney and manto type ore bodies amenable to underground mining methods; and a surface manifestation at Loma del Tigre of mineralized endoskarn exhibits potential to generate a bulk tonnage type deposit. Additionally, a deep ravine in the northern extreme of the Xochipala properties allows for the development of crosscuts approximately 500 meters in length which would potentially permit relatively low cost access and mining methods to mine the upper 300 meters of persistence in depth of any high-grade ore bodies located in the Xochipala plateau.

The former Morelos National Reserve area is presently the most important gold producing region within Mexico. Additionally, the region is relatively well accessed.

In summary, the ground held by Oroco at Xochipala (193 hectares) is sufficient to potentially generate reserves of greater than 1 million ounces gold, in ore bodies similar to the productive high-grade ore bodies that have been discovered in the past within the former Morelos National Reserve.” (from Oroco’s corporate literature)

Oroco holds a 100% interest in the Celia Gene and Celia Generosa concessions with no NSR, required exploration expenditures, or future payments of any kind.

The newly acquired Salvador concession is a 100% owned, 100 hectare concession approximately 30 km west of the regional centre of Chilpancingo, Guerrero. The property is the site of historical high grade gold production and is contiguous to Goldcorp’s Cacho de Oro property.

Conclusion

Oroco Resources Corp. (OCO.v) is an exciting young company with a strong balance sheet and underlying fundamentals. Oroco is offering investors an opportunity to take part in the possible development of a precious and base metal project in Mexico. The Cerro Prieto Mine is located in a mining-friendly country with very little political risk, (Mexico being tied for fourth overall behind Australia, Canada and the United States according to the Behre Dolbear 2007 Ranking of Countries for Mining Investment). Oroco’s Cerro Prieto mine is close to all forms of necessary infrastructure and the resource to date has been defined at a shallow depth. This historical defined resource relates to less than a 15 percent section of the target area with considerable area yet to be explored utilizing modern exploration practices.

As well investors have the opportunity to participate in the start of a grassroots campaign actively exploring for gold on the Xochipala and the Salvador concessions in the Guerrero Gold Belt (the "GGB"), which includes the most promising and growing gold reserves in Mexico.

Oroco Resource Corp. Completes Acquisition OF A 100% INTEREST IN THE CERRO PRIETO MINE

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – April 9, 2008 - Oroco Resource Corp. (TSX-V: OCO) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of the San Francisco and San Felix concessions, containing the past producing Cerro Prieto Mine, located in the state of Sonora, Mexico.

Using funds from the company's CAN $4.4 million initial public offering Oroco has made the final payment of US $1.5 million to the Cerro Prieto property vendors, bringing the total price paid for the San Felix and San Francisco concessions to US $2.5 million. Minas de Oroco Resources S.A. de C.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of Oroco, now holds a 100% ownership interest in the San Felix and San Francisco mining concessions, subject to a 2% NSR payable to the property vendors.

These concessions, together with Oroco's 100% owned Cerro Prieto North concession collectively comprise the 2,723 hectare Cerro Prieto Project. The project is focused on the historic Cerro Prieto Mine and the contained 6.5 km strike length of the geological structure that hosts the mine.

THE CERRO PRIETO PROJECT

The Cerro Prieto Project is located in the Cucurpe Mining District, northern Sonora, Mexico. Access from the regional centre of Magdalena de Kino (population 40,000) is by 40 kilometres of paved road and 12 kilometres of well maintained dirt road. Major electricity transmission lines are less than five kilometres from the project and water is available on site. The Cerro Prieto Mine operated from 1906 with production reportedly between 500 and 720 tpd of gold and silver ore grading three to 15 g/ton Au and 50 to 60 g/ton Ag. Mining operations ceased in 1912 at the time of the Mexican Revolution and were never resumed. In 1998, Morgain Minerals Inc. conducted a reverse circulation drill program of 23 holes collared from surface and contained within the area of historical workings over approximately 800 metres of strike length of the mineralized shear zone and to a depth of no greater than 335 metres.

Mineralization (Pb-Zn-Au-Ag-Mo) at the Cerro Prieto Mine is contained in veins within an approximately 25 metre thick major shear zone which cuts all units from Jurassic to Lower Tertiary. Within this shear zone are contained hanging wall and footwall veins, both of which are one to three metres thick and dip steeply, as well as a series of secondary veins, stringer zones and silicification, ranging up to 40 centimetres thick, which together with the major veins produce a continuous mineralized zone from six metres to in excess of 30 metres thick. The principal structure is a regional structure that can be traced for approximately 10 kilometres north and south of the mine with approximately 6.5 kilometres of strike length contained on Oroco's concessions. At the mine site the structure strikes 350° and dips vertical to 80°. Known mineralization extends from surface to below the lowest level of the historic workings approximately 335 metres below, and is open at depth, to the north and to the south.

EXPLORATION

Exploration to date by Oroco has confirmed mineralization consistent with that reported by previous exploration programs. The average assays of the samples taken by Oroco across the vein on the 800 level haulage drift of the Cerro Prieto Mine are 3.45 g/T Au, 6.22 g/T Ag, 0.54% Pb, and 1.27% Zn over a sampled strike length of 408 metres. The highest assay values reported within the historic workings on all levels sampled in Oroco's exploration to date are 43.00 g/T Au, 1,050.0 g/T Ag, >30% Pb, 11.30 % Zn, and 0.605% Mo.

Oroco's 2008 Phase I exploration program will include a 6,000 metre diamond drilling program in the area of the past producing Cerro Prieto Mine to confirm historic results and test below the historic workings. The program will also include surface mapping, sampling within the historic Cerro Prieto Mine workings and surrounding property, trenching across the vein systems at 200 metre intervals, ground geophysical surveys, and initial small scale (bench) metallurgical testing. A contingent Phase II program will include an additional 20,000 metres diamond drilling including detailed infill, extension surface drilling and underground drilling, and will also include rehabilitation and mapping of underground workings.

Oroco on the Trail of Sonoran Gold & Silver

By Andrew K. Burger
13 Apr 2008 at 03:00 PM


EILAT, Israel (ResourceInvestor.com) -- Having raised C$4.4 million in a March 12 IPO Vancouver’s Oroco Resources [TSX:OCO] has moved quickly out of the gate by acquiring concessions for its Cerro Prieto Project, a gold, silver and polymetallic prospect in Sonora, Mexico. The company on April 9 announced that through its Mexican subsidiary Minas de Oroco Resources S.A. de C.V. it completed the acquisition of the San Francisco and San Felix properties and mining concessions by making a final US$1.5 payment.

Combining the San Francisco and San Felix concessions with the previously acquired Cerro Prieto North concession gives Oroco mining rights to a 2,723 hectare plot that includes the historic Cerro Prieto Mine, which from 1906 to 1912 reportedly produced between 500-720 tonnes per day of gold and silver ore grading three to 15 grams/ton Au and 50-60 g/t Ag.

Management is already bringing together the equipment and human resources to conduct an exploration program. “We are in a position, with sufficient capital, to aggressively push the Phase One exploration program, and are optimistic about the asset,” Stephen Leahy, Oroco’s president and CEO, stated. It has historic production, significant recent exploration conducted by a former property option holder that lead to a resource estimate, and considerable blue sky available though the potential at depth and on strike."

Getting Set for Phase One Exploration

Oroco spent a total US$2.5 million of the capital raised in its IPO, along with a 2% Net Smelter Royalty to the previous owners, to acquire the San Francisco and San Felix properties. It is moving forward as quickly as possible to commence its C$1.0235 million Phase One exploration program, which is expected to take five to seven months to complete.

The program is to include 6,000 meters of diamond drilling, sampling within the Cerro Prieto Mine workings and surrounding property, 200-metre interval trenching along a 6.5 kilometer shear zone, ground geophysical surveys and initial, small-scale bench metallurgical testing, according to Oroco Resources' Adam Smith.

“The company has already secured surface access rights, a drilling contractor, a local crew that includes two geologists and labour, as well as all ancillary requirements. Drilling is therefore expected to commence shortly and be completed on schedule,” Smith told Resource Investor.

Based on historical and its own exploration work, all reporting a consistent level of mineralization, Oroco management has “a high degree of confidence in its development potential,” according to Smith. Historical data includes reports from several exploration programs conducted since 1969 that culminated in 1998 with a 23-hole reverse circulation drilling program.

“Having it fully paid for - subject to a 2% NSR - gives us tremendous flexibility in the timing of expenditures and future fund raising,” Smith added. The funds to complete the acquisition were raised at a time and price of our choosing. Investors can therefore have confidence that the company will not have dilution forced on it due to the need to raise money at times and prices not in the best interests of the company because of the need to meet property payment deadlines.”

Exploration to Date

Morgain Minerals’ 1998 RC drilling program resulted in an estimated bulk underground resource of 7.061 million tons of ore at an average gold equivalent grade of 4.40 g/t and an open pit resource 1.391 million with an average gold equivalent grade of 2.47 g/t, bringing the total estimated resource to more than 1.1 million ounces gold equivalent.

Conducted prior to the establishment of Canada’s NI 43-101 resource estimation and reporting requirements, Oroco is working to verify and provide a more detailed resource estimate in compliance with NI 43-101.

According to Smith, “the average thickness of mineralization included in Morgain's resource estimate is 18 metres and 10 metres, respectively, suggesting low mining and processing costs in line with the $40 to $70 per tonne in similar Mexican underground mining operations.”

Average assays of channel samples taken by Oroco over a sampled 408-metre strike length across the vein on the 800 level haulage drift of the Cerro Prieto Mine are 3.45 g/t Au, 6.22 g/t Ag, 0.54% Pb (lead), and 1.27% Zn (zinc). “Assays on the vein on the 900 and lower levels showed values well in excess of these including a channel sample across 2.70 metres of 0.197g/t Au, 701 g/t Ag, 4.98 Pb, and 4.79 Zn and 0.387 g/t Au, 401 g/t Ag, 4.34% Pb, 3.56% Zn, and 0.605% Mo (molybdenum),” Smith added.

Oroco believes there is significant resource potential below historical exploration work and mining. “Morgain's drilling was confined within the area of historical workings, a strike length of 725 metres and a vertical extent of 400 metres, though the geological structure can be traced on surface for the property's 1.7 km length and is evident for significant additional strike length, up to an additional 5 km, on the Cerro Prieto North concession,” Smith explained.

“Mineralization is open at depth and Oroco's best individual assay of its program, 1050 g/t Ag and >30% Pb was obtained at the lowest level of the historical workings. As a mesothermal system there is significant additional depth possible. Consequently, we feel that considerable exploration potential exists on the project.”

Investment Potential

In addition to the Cerro Prieto North, San Francisco and San Felix properties that comprise its Cerro Prieto Mine Project in Sonora, Oroco wholly owns three other unencumbered properties in the state of Guerrero- taken together called the Xochipala Project - including two within the original Morelos National Reserve less than three kilometers from the Goldcorp Los Filos-Bermajal gold mine. The properties are reported to contain similar mineralization as that which hosts Goldcorp mine.

When it comes to investment potential, 8 million of Oroco’s 27.593 million shares outstanding are restricted by escrow and voluntary pooling agreements, and a high percentage is owned by of institutions, Smith noted.

The company also has an experienced and proven management team with more than enough cash on hand to see the Cerro Prieto’s Phase One exploration program through to completion. “Current market conditions for junior miners are therefore not weighing on the company and we continue to have tremendous support from investors even those worried about any short term fluctuations,” Smith commented.

“The company has tremendous flexibility in future fund raising. Existing warrants at C$0.90 are sufficient to raise in excess of C$3.6 million when exercised and with a modest number of shares outstanding an additional equity offering can be achieved while still maintaining a highly attractive capital structure,” he concluded.
