VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 6, 2022 / Camino Corp. (TSXV:COR) (OTC PINK:CAMZF) (WKN:A116E1) ("Camino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the first phase of the Spring 2022 drilling campaign consisting of three drillholes at the Lourdes zone at its Los Chapitos copper exploration project in Peru ("Los Chapitos" or the "Project"). Mineralization has been visually observed in two of three drillholes. The drillholes have been logged and split and will arrive at the laboratory in Lima for assaying this week, with results expected in late June or early July 2022. The drilling rig has been mobilized to the next exploration target at the Condori zone and will then complete the drilling campaign at the Gallinazo zone (see Figure 1).
Chief Geologist Jose Bassan said, "We met our objective of identifying additional copper oxide and sulphide mineralization in the first drillholes at the Lourdes zone. The assay results will enable us to assess and determine a follow up strategy at Lourdes. We will now continue with our plan to test the copper zones at Condori and Gallinazo."

"We are drilling in an entirely new permitted area comprised of three main zones identified with copper oxide outcrops at surface," said Jay Chmelauskas, CEO of Camino. "Our main objective is to test new areas to add additional shallow copper oxide tonnage to the known copper zones at Adriana (see Figure 2 and news release dated January 19, 2021)."
