Westminster Resources Commences Drilling at Cumbral-San Bortolo, Mexico

Westminster Resources Ltd. (WMR.V) has begun diamond drilling of the 3D-IP Montoso chargeability anomaly in Sonora, Mexico. The multiple square kilometre porphyry deposit style of chargeability patterns at Montoso are associated with copper-gold-silver soil anomalies related to well developed iron-oxide (hematite, goethite) and sericite-clay alteration zones and leached cappings.

Company president Glen Indra stated: "Our aggressive exploration of the Cumbral-San Bartolo property in 2012 identified the Montoso target area. The 2013 drill program of 5,400 metres will continue to confirm that the Montoso discovery is a large new porphyry system."

Westminster has also staked new mineral concessions totaling approximately 9,615 hectares in Sonora, Mexico. The new properties are adjacent to the El Cobre-Navojoa projects' mineral concessions and now the company controls a contiguous mineral district scale property of approximately 59,738 hectares.

WMR shares gained half-a-cent to $0.115.
