Camino Corp. (TSXV: COR) (OTC: CAMZF) (WKN: A116E1) ("Camino" or the "Company") is pleased to announce new exploration results from its 100% owned Plata Dorada Copper and Silver project ("Plata Dorada" or "the Project") in Peru. In March 2021, the Company completed an exploration program at Plata Dorada and identified six new polymetallic veins, bringing the total to sixteen identified veins at the Project (see news release dated February 3, 2021). A rock chip sample taken along the Plata Dorada mesothermal trend identified a new copper and silver mineralized structure with a width of 0.5 m grading 1.19% copper (Cu), and 18.35 ppm silver (Ag). Camino also identified new areas of polymetallic vein mineralization south of the existing claim position and acquired 1,700 hectares (ha) of new claims for a total claim area of 5,500 ha (Figure 1).

The new mineralized veins hosting copper, silver, gold, zinc, and lead have rock chip sample grades up to 1,565 g/t silver (Ag), 0.67 g/t gold (Au), 1.19% copper (Cu), 32% zinc (Zn), and 18.25% lead (Pb). The rock chip samples range in width from 0.2 to 2.0 m across the veins and are found in a preferential direction from northwest to southeast parallel to the Andean trend. The individual polymetallic veins have been mapped with strike lengths up to 5 m, before disappearing under shallow cover. A summary of identified significant vein and channel sample results is shown in Figure 1 and Table 1.

Jose Bassan, Chief Geologist at Camino, said, "We have identified veins with strong silver and copper anomalies at Plata Dorada, along the Andean trend. During our recent prospecting efforts, we have also identified a polymetallic system with silver, copper, gold, lead, and zinc in vetiform structures. Our early exploration results indicated that there is a very rich metal endowment in the area."

"We continue to increase our land position at Plata Dorada based on exceptional high-grade samples returned from subsequent reconnaissance traverses," said Camino CEO Jay Chmelauskas. "This is a region with a rich history of high-grade metal mines and discoveries."

High-grade silver samples 90 (0.4 m @ 1,565 g/t Ag) and 91 strike in the northwest to southeast direction and are spaced approximately 50 m apart. Sample 90 was taken across a 0.4 m wide outcropping vein. Sample 91 is a grab sample that is projected to be an extension to the vein in sample 90.

Historical artisanal mining shows a structural lineament in the Andean trend "Rumbo Andino" from northwest to southeast that contains multiple mineralized structures with directions varying from northwest to northeast, following the same trend from rock chip samples. The structures are subvertical with sigmoidal and lenticular shape on the surface, and filled with milky saccaroidal-quartz, iron oxides, argentiferous galena, sphalerite, and chalcopyrite. The veins are clearly identifiable around artisanal workings, but otherwise disappear under soil cover.

Camino is developing an exploration program that will include collecting over 450 soil samples for x-ray fluorescence (xrf) analyses, as well as detailed 1:2500 geological mapping of the mineralized structures with the goal of defining a drilling program by the end of 2021.

Plata Dorada is located 158 kilometers east of the city of Cusco. The Project can be accessed by a 2.5-hour drive along a paved highway from Cusco. There are 18th century records of colonial mining activities at several locations within 50 kilometers of Plata Dorada. Numerous pits and shallow underground workings exist on the property as a result of recent artisanal mining activities.

The 2021 channel samples were collected and analyzed by ICP-61, with digestion by four acids for 33 elements and fire assay for Au. The geochemical analyses of the samples were labelled according to analysis batch "LI21099746, LI21097983" & ME-MS61 & Cu-OG62 & Au-AA23 & Ag-GRA21 & Ag-OG62 & Pb-OG62 & Zn-VOL70 & Pb-VOL70 and sent to ALS global based in Lima, Peru for analysis.
