Tango Gold Mines Incorporated (TSX VENTURE:TGV) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the discovery of several high grade low-sulphidation epithermal quartz veins, with gold and silver, from preliminary geological reconnaissance and surface sampling on its 100% owned 2088.8 hectare (ha) El Santo concession, Nicaragua.
Low-sulphidation epithermal quartz adularia veins, with gold and silver, have been mapped on the El Santo concession with a structural orientation NE-SW and are associated with high temperature alteration minerals. Seven veins were mapped and have six have been named El Pulpito, El Zanjon, La Mexicana, La Mexicana II, Belgica 1 and 2. Of the 46 chip samples analysed 34 had over 1 gram per tonne (g/t) gold, 19 had over 4 g/t gold,7 were over 10 g/t gold and the highest grade sample was a 3 meter (m) chip sample that returned 748.4 g/t gold and 409 g/t silver from La Mexicana II vein. A complete summary of all 48-chip samples can be found in Table 1 and are plotted on Figure 1 and 2.

The El Santo Concession is located within the Libertad Mining District approximately 110 kilometers (km) due east of Managua. The Libertad Mining District covers an area of approximately 150 square km and lies within a broad belt of Tertiary volcanic rocks. The El Santo vein system discovered is quite similar geologically to those that occur in the mining districts of Santo Domingo and La Libertad respectively.
