Jujuy, Argentina – May 24, 2013 – Soltera Mining Corp. (OTC: SLTA.PK) (www.solteramining.com) announces that the Jujuy Department of Mining and Energy Resources has approved the Environmental Impact Statement (“EIS”) for Mina Palca Ingenio and El Torno Sur areas at the El Torno Gold Project in Jujuy, Argentina.
The El Torno Gold Project consists of five mining rights covering a total of 7,863 hectares located in the Andean Cordillera in the mining friendly north-western province of Jujuy, Argentina near the international border with Bolivia.
The areas covered by these EIS approvals, Mina Palca Ingenio and El Torno Sur, contain approximately half of the gold anomalous zones considered as priority drill targets at El Torno. Approval of the EIS for El Torno Norte, still pending, will give Soltera drilling access to 100% of the six highly prospective gold target areas identified at El Torno.
Fabio Montanari, President/CEO states, “Old workings and drilling done in the 1990’s by Puma and Peñoles show that gold occurs to at least 100 meters below surface, but drilling is absolutely essential to ascertain its quantity and distribution. Gaining these EIS approvals is a critical step towards the commencement of a drill program currently being finalized.”
The El Torno Gold Project has potential for world-class gold deposits of two types; vein gold in a very large quartz vein system that extends intermittently north-south for 14 km and has been worked underground in the past, and dispersed gold in suites of small veins and stockworks that are separate from the main system and appear to be major open-pit targets.
