About Centenera Mining Corporation
Centenera is a mineral resource company trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"), under the symbol "CT" and on the OTCQB exchange under the symbol "CTMIF". The Company is currently devoting 100% of its attention to its mineral resource assets in Argentina. The Company's strategy in 2017 will be to focus on the Huachi Copper-Gold Project, finalizing drill targets and planning in Q2, and on drill-testing in Q3/Q4. Other assets, such as the El Quemado Lithium Pegmatite Project in Salta Province, will see appropriate levels of exploration aimed at proving project potential and attracting a joint venture partner or a project sale. The Company will also seek a joint venture partner for the relatively advanced Organullo Gold Project, which has approximately 8,000 meters of historical drilling and assay results. The Organullo Gold Project has a geological target range from 19.8 million tonnes grading at 0.94 g/t gold (600,000 ounces) to 31.6 million tonnes grading at 0.92 g/t gold (940,000 ounces) using a 0.5 g/t gold cut-off-grade.
It should be noted that these potential exploration target quantities and grades are conceptual in nature, that insufficient exploration and geological modelling has been done to define a mineral resource, and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the delineation of a mineral resource.
