Condor Resources Inc.: First Deep Hole at Soledad Project, Peru, Intersects 174m of 4.4 g/t AuEq

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Condor Resources Inc. - ("Condor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CN) is very pleased to provide the third report on the 2,084 metre diamond drill program recently completed by Mariana Resources Ltd. ("Mariana") on the Company's 100% owned Soledad project. Soledad is located in the Cordillera Negra metallogenic province approximately 35 km south of the Pierina gold-silver mine, Peru.

Hole 9 (SDH-009) tested Breccia #1 and was drilled at a steep angle (80 degrees ) below, and from the same setup, as SDH-001. The hole was planned to test for possible higher grade feeder zones and indications of underlying porphyry mineralization.

SDH-009 intersected 174m of mineralized breccia (from 92m to 266m) that averaged 4.4 g/t AuEq (0.74 g/t Au, 114 g/t Ag, and 1.2% Cu). SDH-009 intersected three zones of strong quartz-tourmaline-sulphide mineralization, as shown below in Table 1, and included a deep high grade intersection of 29m of 9.8 g/t AuEq (1.85 g/t Au, 301g/t Ag, and 2.1% Cu) starting at 236m.

(i)True widths are unknown, and shapes are irregular, but at 200m below
surface, the true horizontal width for the semi-circular Breccia #1 is
estimated at 35 to 40m.
(ii)AuEq assumes US $1200/oz gold, US $18.25/oz silver, US $2.85/lb copper,
and 100% recovery.

Mariana's geologists describe the Breccia #1 clasts as mostly andesite with intense quartz-sericite alteration in a quartz-tourmaline-sulphide matrix. Matrix sulphides include pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite. The absolute and relative gold and silver values increase with depth from 170m to 265m. Breccia clast alteration, increasing veinlets, and increasing copper and gold/copper ratios up to 250m below surface are interpreted to indicate possible mineralized porphyry beneath the breccia.

Further drilling results are expected shortly for SDH-011 and SDH-0012; SDH-010 was abandoned at about 55m due to technical problems. Of particular interest is SDH-012, a near vertical hole, drilled to 437m depth in Breccia #5, to also test for possible higher grade feeder zones and indications of underlying mineralized porphyry associated with the cluster of mineralized breccias expressed at surface within the roughly 1 km diameter area of interest.

Ever Marquez, Condor's Vice President of Exploration, stated "The first stage of the drill program has successfully confirmed the potential for bulk tonnage, with gold, copper, and silver confirmed at Breccia #6 (76m of 1.0 g/t AuEq) and Breccia #5 (96m of 1.5 g/t AuEq). We look forward to pending results from deep hole SDH-012 in Breccia #5 to confirm the potential for porphyry mineralization at depth."

The Company currently has three of its properties under active exploration by third parties, and looks forward to a steady flow of results from these programs. In addition, the Company is actively seeking partners on its other projects, and is reviewing new opportunities identified by its Lima based exploration team.

Quality Assurance/Quality Control: Mariana, the operator of the drill program have advised as follows: Drilling was performed by Energold Drilling Peru SAC utilizing an S-2 hydraulic portable diesel rig. All technical information for the Soledad project is obtained and reported under a quality assurance and quality control program. Samples are shipped to and assayed by ALS Chemex Laboratory in Lima, a laboratory whose quality control system complies with International Standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 17025:2005. A four-acid digestion system with 33 element ICP-AES analysis is conducted on all samples, with silver, lead and zinc being re-analyzed with atomic absorption spectrometry method when analyzing over the ICP limits. Gold is assayed using a fire assay with an atomic absorption spectrometry finish. Systematic assaying of sample duplicates and commercially prepared blanks is performed for analytical reliability. Screen fire assays for gold may be carried out on selected samples. A secure chain of custody is maintained in transporting and storing of all samples.
