VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 1, 2011) - Salazar Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SRL)(FFRANKFURT:CCG) reports new assay results from the ongoing diamond drilling program on its 100% owned (30,327 ha), precious metals' rich Curipamba volcanogenic massive sulphide project in Ecuador. Hole 113 intersected 7.95 meters of mineralization grading 10.32 g/t gold, 227.51 g/t silver, 0.75% copper, 2.88% lead and 6.31% zinc, including 2.40 meters grading 33.24 g/t gold, 734.63 g/t silver, 2.31% copper, 9.42% lead and 18.99% zinc (Figure 1 - to view click on:; Table 1). The intersection indicates copper, gold and silver-rich mineralization continuing to the west. Salazar currently has two drills delineating and extending the deposit.

Mr. Salazar says, "The hole 113 intersection is further confirmation of the extent and character of the high grade mineralization in this area of the El Domo deposit. The high gold and silver values are particularly impressive."

Hole 113, drilled approximately 50m west of hole 106, intersected the massive sulphide horizon as well as mineralized breccias. The strong gold, silver and copper grades indicate the area of high grade mineralization continues to the west.

Hole 114 was drilled to test if the massive sulphide mineralization is present at depth beneath the andesite sill. The hole was unable to advance past the contact between the andesite and the grainstone unit, which typically caps the massive sulphide mineralization, because of strong fault-related clay development. Further drilling is required to test this area.

Drill core samples are analyzed by ALS Chemex Labs Ltd., an ISO 9001:2000 certified laboratory. Prospecting, soil and stream sediment samples are analyzed by BSI Inspectorate Services an ISO 9001:2000 certified laboratory which also has an accreditation of ISO 17025. Salazar maintains a QC program is used whereby standard samples and blanks are inserted into each batch of samples to ensure quality control.
