Indico Extends Closing Date on the Maria Reyna Property
|Vancouver, British Columbia - As a follow-up to its news release dated March 1, 2013, Indico Resources Ltd. ("Indico" or the "Company") (TSX-V: IDI) is pleased to announce the extension of the closing date of the binding Memorandum of Understanding with the Peruvian owners of Cia Minera Maria Reyna S.A. of Lima, Peru, wherein Indico will acquire an indirect 51% interest and further be granted an exclusive option to acquire the remaining indirect interest in the Maria Reyna Co-Mo porphyry project in southern Peru. The date for the closing is now set at January 31, 2014.|
The Maria Reyna project consists of a 3164 hectare group of mining titles located in the Andahuaylas-Yauri Belt of skarn-porphyry deposits in Cusco Region, Southern Peru, 100km south of Cusco and within 10km of Hudbay's Constancia Cu-Mo-Ag project (ex-Norsemont sold to Hudbay in Q2 2011 for $520 million) which is currently under construction (Figure 1).

The Maria Reyna concession block covers at least three significant skarn ± porphyry systems along 10 kilometres of a northeast-trending structure. Mineralization is related to the regionally significant Andahuaylas batholith and later subvolcanic intrusions. This igneous suite has intruded extensive marine sedimentary rocks of the Yura Group, which in the project area are mainly complexly folded carbonate rocks. Skarn Cu-Mo±Au mineralization is common along the contact zones, and porphyry mineralization occurs within and adjacent to some of the subvolcanic dacitic intrusions. The same geology is present at several significant deposits in the Belt, including the Las Bambas skarn-porphyry cluster (1.7 billion tonnes of 0.60% Cu), Haquira (690 million tonnes at 0.59% Cu), and the Constancia porphyry deposit (reserves of 450 million tonnes at 0.36% Cu), located only 10 kilometres southeast of Maria Reyna.
