Gold, Copper and Silver Encountered at Natagaima

Perth, April 28, 2015 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Pacifico Minerals Limited (googlechartASX:PMY) ("Pacifico" or "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of phase two reconnaissance over part of its 5,230 hectare Natagaima tenement application in the department of Tolima, Colombia (see Figure 1 in link below). A zone of high interest is defined at the intersection of two mineralised structures coincident with strongly developed argillic alteration.

Phase two reconnaissance generated 67 grab samples*, comprising eight float samples and 36 stream sediment samples (18 x <80 mesh and 18 x <2.5 mm) from 18 locations (see Figure2 in link below). Highlight grades include:

- 8.42g/t Au (MO5703)

- 6.2% Cu (MO5724)

- 2.30g/t Au (MO6207)

- 1.89g/t Au and 1.71% Cu (MO5716)

- 1.25g/t Au, 113g/t Ag and 6.05% Cu (MO6222)

Samples generated during phase two reconnaissance are provided in Appendix 1.

Phase two reconnaissance expanded on work completed during phase one reconnaissance (see ASX announcement dated 27 January 2015). Lithological and structural mapping was refined and grab sampling and stream sediment sampling was continued and now covers the majority of Pacifico's Natagaima tenement application (see Figure 2 in link below).

Phase one and two reconnaissance generated a combined total of 123 selective grab samples and 86 stream sediment samples from 43 locations (43 x <2.5 mm and 43 x <80 mesh). All assay data has been reviewed and maps generated for each element by sample type with two mineralised trends recognised.

Two significant mineralised corridors are evident:

- An 11km northeast-southwest long mineralised corridor extending across the sheared granite in the northeast into volcanics in the southwest (see Figure 3). The sheared granite host quartz veins enriched in the copper lead and zinc. Quartz veins hosted in the volcanics are enriched in gold (sample MO5703 @ 8.42g/t Au and MO6207 @ 2.30g/t Au).

- A northwest-southeast mineralised corridor enriched in silver (see Figure 3 in link below).

The intersection of these two corridors is coincident with a well developed area of argillic alteration (see Figure 3) and is considered to be highly prospective. Two areas of interest occurring along the mineralised trends are presented in Figure 3. Follow up exploration is being planned and will likely include detailed mapping and trenching of areas of interest.
