VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwire – Aug. 15, 2012) – Mr. Allen Wilson, President and CEO of Dakar Resource Corp. (“Dakar”) (TSX VENTURE:DKR) reports that the second phase drill program has begun on its NAP copper-gold-silver-zinc exploration property 40 Km south of Kamloops B.C. Dakar is targeting several intersecting and subparallel near surface IP anomalies. The targets also host copper-gold-silver mineralized rock, trench and soil samples extending over a 1,000 by 300 metre east trending area. All zones are open to the east, south, west and to depth.
The first hole, N12-001 is located 200 metres west of hole N11-001. Hole N11-001 intersected 0.26% copper, 0.37 g/t gold and 3.1 g/t silver over a drilled near true width interval of 15.8 m. Hole N12-001 is testing the eastern extension of a 400 metre long IP anomaly that also hosts historic surface rock samples that returned between 0.28 and 1% copper, .065 to 0.84% zinc, up to 4.6 g/t silver and anomalous gold over a 1 hectare area.
Proposed hole N12-002 is 150 metres NE of Hole N12-001 and 150 metres NW of hole N11-001 and is also targeting an IP anomaly with historic mineralized rock samples grading between 0.03 and 0.7% copper, 25 to 580 ppb gold and trace to 14.7 g/t silver.
Proposed hole N12-003 is 190 metres ESE hole of N12-001 and 100 metres SSE of hole N11-001 and is located to test the eastern part of an IP anomaly that may represent the underlying signature of the mineralization intersected in Hole N11-001, and extending to hole B12-002.
Proposed hole N12-004 is located 100 metres NW of hole N12-001 is located to test the northern or eastern edge of a very strong IP anomaly that appears to extend to all 2012 drill targets.
Dakar will earn a 100% interest in the NAP property by paying $152,000 cash ($12,000 paid), issuing 500,000 shares (200,000 issued) and incurring $1 million work commitments ($125,000 spent) over a 4 year period.
