VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2012) - Guerrero Exploration Inc. ("Guerrero" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:GEX)(FRANKFURT:2GU) is pleased to announce that it has applied for the 86,205 Ha Olinala property in Guerrero state, Mexico, centered 100 km east of the State capital, Chilpancingo de los Bravo, and 187 km SE of Mexico City. It is located immediately south of Cerro Dolores, a polymetallic project owned by Goldcorp that was optioned to Starcore International Mines in 2008 (Starcore International Mines Ltd., MDA 31 January 2008). The Olinala application area overlaps two volcanic belts that are considered prospective for volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits.
The Olinala Property also overlaps the eastern part of the Mixteca Terrane in Guerrero State. This geological terrane hosts several recent gold and base metal discoveries, including Morelos Sur (Cayden Resources Inc.), Morelos (Torex Gold Resources Inc.) and the Los Filos/Bermejal open pit mine with 248.6 million tonnes of 5.1 g/t gold and 40.97 g/t silver (Goldcorp).
President and CEO, David Stadnyk, stated: "We are very pleased with the ongoing extensive efforts of management in staking large surface exploration rights. The Company is committed to finding a resource base through an aggressive exploration drill program on the Cerro Azul property, and a regional first pass sampling exploration work program on the company's Coatapec, Cibola and Olinala properties in Guerrero state. With Guerrero having one of the largest land ownerships in the state of Guerrero and having the smallest market cap amongst the neighboring publically trading companies in the area, Guerrero has now set the stage to aggressively explore the properties for potential new opportunities of precious and base metal resources."
