Drilling Underway at El Rincon Gold Project; Annual General and Special Meeting January 25
January 17, 2011
Camino Minerals Corporation (COR: TSX-V) ("Camino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a 3,000 metre reverse circulation drill program is currently underway at the El Rincon gold project,
located in Durango State, Mexico.
Drilling will be focused in and around an area known as the Ventana Zone, located in the southwest area of the property, where Camino earlier returned samples grading up to 4.03 g/t Au (see news
release dated October 13, 2010). Ventana is situated within a gold geochemical anomaly that is coincident with an induced polarization chargeability anomaly, all of which occur within a
northeast-trending structural corridor that hosts Argonaut Gold's El Castillo gold mine, located 3-km to the west. An updated map, showing the location of the Ventana Zone, will be available at
Camino's web site: www.caminominerals.com
"The year ahead promises to be an exciting one," said Gordon Davis, Camino's Chairman and CEO. "In addition to the drill program currently underway at El Rincon, we also plan to drill the Rodeo
gold project, in the state of Durango, and the Maijoma claim group, in the state of Chihuahua."
El Rincon is located 120-kilometres northeast of the city of Durango, located in Durango State, Mexico, and is accessed by paved highway. The 12,946 hectare (50 square miles) property is situated
along the same northeast-trending structural corridor as Argonaut Gold's El Castillo gold mine and Silver Standard's San Agustin deposit. El Rincon holds potential for the discovery of bulk-tonnage
