JUJUY, ARGENTINA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 -- Soltera Mining Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SLTA) (www.solteramining.com) announces that the Jujuy Department of Mining and Energy Resources has approved the Environmental Impact Statement ("EIS") for the El Torno Norte section of the El Torno Gold Project in Jujuy, Argentina.
The El Torno Gold Project consists of five mining rights covering a total of 7,863 hectares located in the Andean Cordillera in the mining friendly northwestern province of Jujuy, Argentina near the international border with Bolivia.
To date Soltera has received EIS approval over three of these licenses: Mina Palca-Ingenio, Mina El Torno Sur, and now Mina El Torno Norte - a combined area of over 4,000 km2 containing six highly prospective gold targets identified for priority drilling.
Fabio Montanari, President/CEO states, "Old workings and drilling done in the 1990's by Puma and Penoles show that gold occurs to at least 100 meters below surface, but drilling is absolutely essential to ascertain its quantity and distribution. Gaining these EIS approvals over the most prospective gold targets at El Torno is a critical step towards the commencement of a drill program currently being finalized."
The El Torno Gold Project has potential for world-class gold deposits of two types; vein gold in a very large quartz vein system that extends intermittently north-south for 14 km and has been worked under ground in the past, and dispersed gold in suites of small veins and stockworks that are separate from the main system and appear to be major open-pit targets.
