Portal Commences Drilling on El Porvenir-Refugio Molybdenum-Copper Porphyry Target

Portal Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on the Refugio porphyry molybdenum-copper zone at the Arroyo Verde project in Chubut province, Argentina.

The Company recently completed 15 kilometers of pole-dipole IP/Resistivity survey indicating the presence of two large, discrete IP chargeability anomalies coincident with anomalous molybdenum and copper geochemistry in surface rock and soil samples and argillically altered and gossanous bedrock. Two reverse circulation drill holes will test these two newly defined chargeability anomalies to a depth of 300 to 400 meters.

In 2006 Portal carried out Induced Polarization/Resistivity geophysical surveys defining a large chargeability anomaly measuring three kilometers wide by in excess of seven kilometers long. Subsequently six reverse circulation drill holes 500 to 1000 meters apart were drilled on the northern portion of the IP anomaly.

Drill hole PO-54 provided the best results to date with two intersections of 176 meters grading 0.031% molybdenum from 284 to 460 meters and 54.5 meters grading 0.0324 % molybdenum from 655 to 711.15 meters. The drilling identified a porphyry system with lead-zinc mineralization peripheral to a higher grade molybdenum-copper zone which remains open to the southwest.

Portal Resources Ltd. is a precious and base metal exploration company founded in 2004. The Company’s exploration portfolio consists of approximately 1000 square miles of mineral rights in three primary project areas in Argentina. Commodities being explored for include gold, silver, copper, molybdenum and uranium.
