Tempus Resources Ltd. (ASX: TMR) (TSXV: TMRR) (“Tempus Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has commenced the 2021 exploration program at its Valle del Tigre II Project located in south eastern Ecuador.
The Valle del Tigre II project is a grassroots stage, exploration project in the highly prospective Cordillera del Condor mineral belt of southeast Ecuador. Valle del Tigre II boundary is situated approximately 2.5 km northwest of Lundin Mining’s Fruta del Norte, epithermal Au-Ag deposit (7.35 M oz Au @ 9.61 g/t Indicated Resource) and approximately 15 km southwest of the Mirador Cu-Au porphyry deposit (3.2 Mt Cu, 3.4 Moz Au, and 27.1 Moz Ag in proven and probable reserves) owned by CRCC-Tongguan Investment Co., as shown in figure 1. The property is underlain by the same sedimentary rocks and lies within the same rift faulting corridor as Fruta del Norte.

In 2019/20, Tempus Resources completed a 600 line-km ZTEM airborne geophysics survey, conducted by Geotech Ltd. over the Rio Zarza and Valle del Tigre II Properties. The 3D resistivity inversion data has delineated a strong resistivity/conductive anomaly that will be the target to the Phase I exploration program in Valle del Tigre II (as shown in Figure 2). The Phase I target area also coincide with historic prospecting conducted by Condor Gold in 2008 where native gold was identified in pan concentrates. Copper minerals were also identified in the same area.
The Phase I program will consist of ridge-and-spur soil sampling, stream sediment sampling and field mapping and provide valuable reconnaissance information for follow up exploration on the property.
