VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - Angel Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ANG) ("Angel" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, by Resolution number 130HX-1304-6434 of April 22, 2013, the Colombian environmental authority Corporación Autonoma Regional del Centro de Antioquia - Dirección Territorial Hevéxicos "CORANTIOQUIA" issued the Water Concession needed to drill Buritica West. By receiving the water concession, the Company completes the permitting process to drill the property.
"The environmental authority Resolution is a very important step on the advancement of the Company plans to explore the property" stated Stella Frias, President and CEO of Angel Gold.
Buritica West, 326 hectare project is strategically located immediately adjacent to the Buritica Project of Continental Gold. Work completed by Continental Gold has identified a significant open ended high-grade gold/silver/zinc resource contained within the Yaragua and Veta Sur vein systems totaling approximately 1.58 million ounces of gold (measured and indicated categories at a 4 g/t cut-off as outlined in Continental's NI43-101 technical report dated November 15, 2012). These west to west southwest-trending vein systems are located immediately east of Angel Gold's Buritica West Gold Project.
Angel Gold's Buritica West Project is primarily underlain by the sheared, diked, veined and altered "Cataclastic Tonalite", the intrusive border phase of the Sabanalarga Batholith. Work completed to date by the Company includes a Mobile Metallic Ion soil sample program - an SGS Laboratories proprietary technique. Results have identified anomalous gold-silver zones immediately west of the Yaragua, Veta Sur and La Estera vein system locations, within the boundary of the Angel Gold Buritica West Gold Project. These anomalies are located along strike of the respective vein systems under development by Continental Gold. A strong northwest trending anomaly of up to 180 meters wide is located at the La Mina area in the east central portion of the project and will likely be the first drill target. A second zone located farther north at the San Agustin area is a follow up target. (Please review the relevant maps on the company website www.angelgoldcorp.com.) Only one third of the project has been evaluated and further reconnaissance is planned for the remaining areas.
Mr. James G. Burns, P.Eng, a Qualified Person under NI 43-101 and a technical consultant to the Company has reviewed the technical content of this press release.
