TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 10, 2013) - Braeval Mining Corporation (TSX:BVL) ("Braeval Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received all necessary permits to commence diamond drilling on its Guaynopa project located in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The Company also provides below an update on planned work on the recently acquired El Petate Property located in Hidalgo State, Mexico and for its Acropunco Property located in Huancavelica, Peru.

Drilling to Commence at Guaynopa

Braeval expects to commence the Phase One diamond drilling program in early November on the Guaynopa Property, to test gold-copper skarn targets previously identified on the property. The Company has obtained all the necessary drill permits for the initial 1,200 metre program.

El Petate

The "El Petate Project" is located in Pachuca, Mexico, 28 km north west of the historical Pachuca Real del Monte mining district. The Company signed a memorandum of understanding ("MOU") with Prospero Silver Corporation on September 10, 2013 for an initial interest of 58% and a further option (contingent on Prospero not maintaining its 42% interest) to acquire up to 75% of the property (see Braeval press release dated September 11th, 2013).

Braeval intends to start the initial detailed sampling and mapping during Q4/2013 and plans to conduct a reconnaissance reverse circulation drilling program of 2,500 m in Q1/2014, pending results of the initial ground work and the granting of drilling permits.

Arcopunco Lithocaps Project

In 2011, the Company staked 25,090 ha in Peru as part of its lithocaps strategy and subsequently optioned two additional projects, Arcopunco (595 ha) and Terciopelo (4,200 ha).

The Company has completed its initial phase of detailed sampling and mapping on the project areas. The work identified a principal anomalous area of over 6 square kilometres, consisting of hydrothermal alteration and associated gold anomalies. Phase One drilling at Arcopunco is planned for Q1/2014 (weather permitting), with an initial diamond drill program of 1,500 m. The initial environmental impact assessment permits have been granted, and the Company expects to receive the permit to initiate drilling in the first quarter of next year.

The Companys' unaudited cash balance as of September 30, 2013, was approximately $10.4 M.
