Laredo Resources Provides Pony Mountain Update

PONY MOUNTAIN, Mont., Oct. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Laredo Resources Corp. (OTCQB:LRDR) ("Laredo") announces that M & W Milling and Moen Excavation are now hauling from dumps of ore material located on the Pony property to a staging area at the base of the property, in order to be prepared for crushing and shipping. The Department of Environmental Quality DEQ has issued a permit for this activity. The material will undergo testing by a resident geologist to determine the exact grades of gold in the stock piles to assist in monitoring the material before any shipment. The dumps have already undergone bulk sampling under the direction of Moen Excavation over the past several months, and samples have been ICP scanned, which involves laboratory testing for any levels of impurities and/or contaminants, in order to eliminate any risk in subsequent processing. It is intended to move and locate a crushing plant to the staging site later this month. The crusher has a capacity of up to 100 tons an hour depending upon the nature and size of the material. Dumps are low grade ore material that have previously been excavated from tunnels drifted in to high grade zones located at previously mined locations on the property.

The Pony Mountain Gold property is located in the premier gold-producing Mineral Hills District in South Western Montana. This 4000-acre package assembled over decades by a local partnership.
