Potential for Gold Mineralization Identified at Arikepay

 Vancouver, British Columbia, September 27th, 2017.  Candente Copper Corp. (TSX:DNT, BVL:DNT) ("Candente Copper", "Company") is pleased to announce that it has conducted a review of all diamond drilling information from Compañia Minera Zahena S.A.C. ("Zahena") from its Arikepay property in southern Peru and has identified potential for significant gold mineralization.

The Company optioned the Arikepay property to Zahena in 2013.  In 2017, Zahena drilled 14 diamond drill holes (DDH) for 8,907.80 metre's (m) and subsequently discontinued the option due to low copper grades (see News Release dated March 17, 2017).  In 2012, the Company drilled 14 reverse circulation (RC) holes for 3,630m.  Significant results include:

  • DDH-02-17: 81 metres (m) (342m -- 423m) at 3.052 g/t gold, 2.041 g/t silver,
    and 18m (30m -- 48m) at 1.087 g/t gold, 0.1 g/t silver; and 81m
  • DDH-02A-17: 60m (27m -- 87m) at 1.304 g/t gold, 0.4 g/t silver
  • DDH-07-17: 18m (180m -- 198m) at 2.066 g/t gold, 5.8 g/t silver
  • RC-12-02: 26m (44m -- 70m) at 1.290 g/t gold, 4.5 g/t silver
  • RC-12-11: 58m (64m -- 122m) at 0.541 g/t gold, 2.1 g/t silver

The significant gold mineralization identified above trends northwest for potentially 1,000m along the southwestern flank of a large, gravel covered northwest trending zone of moderately to intensely silicified and potassic altered andesitic volcanic rocks and dioritic intrusive rocks that measures approximately 2,000m by 700m to 1,200m.  It was initially discovered by Candente geologists during RC drilling in 2012 and further explored for its copper potential by Zahena, under option, in 2017.  Mineralization consists of trace to over 15% disseminated and veinlet pyrite and trace to 1% chalcopyrite.

 "We were well aware of gold mineralization from our own RC drilling in 2012, but now these 3 diamond drill holes drilled by Zahena give us additional confidence in the area's gold potential.  We strongly believe additional drilling is warranted and are assessing options to further test this area of gold mineralization,"  commented Joanne Freeze, P.Geo., Candente Copper's CEO.
