Cordoba Minerals Announces the Mobilization of a RAB Drill-Rig to Commence Exploration Drilling of the Montiel Prospect

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/12/14 -- Cordoba Minerals ("Cordoba" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CDB) is pleased to report that a track-mounted RAB (rotary air blast) drill-rig has been mobilized at the Montiel Prospect located within the San Matias Project in Cordoba, Colombia, where previously reported diamond drilling has included: 101.10 metres @ 1.0 % Copper and 0.65 g/t Gold (2.37 g/t AuEq) in DDH-004 (see November 20, 2013 news release). As announced on August 1, 2013, Cordoba signed a binding agreement to consolidate the 26,000 hectares San Matias Project, with closing anticipated early 2014.

The Montiel prospect is composed of a large (+1km in diameter) and robust Cu/Au in-soil anomaly, associated with a cluster of outcropping mineralized porphyry Cu-Au intrusive centers, extensive shallow artisanal mining activity and associated alluvial gold mining that is sourced from the Montiel porphyry cluster (Figure 1). The RAB drill-rig has been specially designed for Cordoba and will be utilized to rapidly drill the upper 50 vertical metres of the exposed porphyry Cu-Au mineralization with percussion drilling, commencing at Montiel West and moving towards Montiel East. Follow-up diamond drilling will commence upon completion of the first-pass RAB exploration drilling.

RAB drilling is a very effective drilling technique used specifically in areas where a well-developed saprolite has formed and where larger areas of surface mineralization are evident with favourable topography, such as the Montiel Prospect. The RAB drilling program is expected to rapidly locate the more well-developed areas of porphyry style Cu-Au mineralization to better target follow-up deeper diamond drilling activities efficiently and cheaply.

Simon Ridgway, CEO of Cordoba, commented: "We are extremely pleased to commence our 2014 drilling program at the Montiel Prospect, the first of numerous porphyry Cu-Au targets identified to date, and start unlocking the full potential of the San Matias Project."
