Candente Copper Updates Drilling at Canariaco

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Candente Copper Corp. (TSX:DNT)(PINKSHEETS:CCOXF)(LMA:DNT) ("Candente Copper" or "the Company") is pleased to report on progress of exploration and feasibility drilling on the Canariaco property.

One drill is working on Canariaco Norte focusing on metallurgical and geotechnical work. Three metallurgical holes have now been completed to depths of 201, 303 and 253 metres, respectively, and a fourth metallurgical hole is in progress. A second drill is working on exploration targets at Canariaco Sur and the first hole (CS-12-003) has been completed to a depth of 528 metres. Drilling has commenced on the second hole (CS-13-004).

Drill hole CS-12-003 was targeted to test a strong induced polarization ("IP") chargeability anomaly from a previous partially complete geophysical survey, thought to represent the pyrite halo of a porphyry deposit. A second IP survey was recently completed which expanded on the previous survey to cover the entire Canariaco Sur prospect area. Interpretation of the new and expanded IP survey and observations made from hole CS-12-003 indicates the pyrite halo is situated a further 300 metres to 400 metres to the west. Moderate to strong potassic and phyllic alteration has mostly obliterated volcanic and various porphyritic intrusive rock textures. Locally strong quartz-sulphide stockwork veining is also associated with potassic and phyllic alteration. Samples for drill hole CS-12-003 have been sent to ALS Chemex labs in Lima, Peru for ICP and assay analyses which will be reported once received.

Approximately 11,000 metres of feasibility drilling are planned for Canariaco Norte and approximately 4,000 metres of exploration drilling are planned for Canariaco Sur. Local employment to support the drilling and other project site activities is carried out on a rotational basis and over 260 villagers have now qualified for the 130 daily positions.

Working Table for Development for the District of Kanaris

The Company is also very pleased to report that a Working Table for Development for the District of Kanaris was installed by The National Dialogue Office of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers ("PCM") and the Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MINEM") in Chicalyo on Saturday January 19, 2013. The installation was conducted in a private meeting involving representatives of the Regional Government of Lambayeque, Representatives of the communities of Kanaris and Tupac Amaru, the Municipality of Ferrenafe and Kanaris, the National Water Authority, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion, as well as several institutions and professional associations. Following the meeting, the agreements that have been reached to ensure the development of this district, which is the poorest and least developed region of Lambayeque, will be announced.

During the meeting, it was highlighted that one of the goals of the development board is to foster dialogue, and seek understanding between the Company and the District of Kanaris with respect to the Canariaco mining project. Both the Company and members from the Community have demonstrated that they support this. This is considered a great opportunity to raise not only the understanding of the mining project but also the opportunities for development of the district and the country.

Officials also commented that that there is a relationship between some protests in Kanaris and current anti-mining sectors seeking to prevent investments in Peru, but in Kanaris many people are not in agreement with this attitude, they prefer to converse and have dialogue. The presence of leaders from the two communities in the District of Kanaris at the Working Table demonstrates this.

The fact that there is no previous mining experience in Lambayeque, has likely lead to a mistrust from a number of residents so MINEM is planning to carry out workshops on Responsible Mining in the community. The Department of Lambayeque and the District of San Juan de Kanaris do not currently receive the Mining tax ("Canon"), and therefore the development of Canariaco is considered a great opportunity for Lambayeque.


On January 20 and 21, 2013 a few roads providing access to the Canariaco project were blocked by some of the local villagers and other villagers also gathered near the Canariaco Camp to protest the exploration and feasibility work at Canariaco. These activities were carried out by approximately 150 people in total and have been peaceful. The roads were cleared and most of the protestors had departed the area by January 22. Company officials are in communication with the villagers and National Police are present at the Canariaco site.

These actions are understood to be in response to the establishment of the Working Table for Development for the District of Kanaris mentioned above.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
