SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic, Nov. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Santo Mining Corp. (OTCBB:SANP), (the "Company"), Santo Mining CEO Al French stakes new mining claim close to Barrick Gold's "Pueblo Viejo" mine with reported 25 Million Ounces of Gold reserves.

Last Friday CEO Al French registered a new claim for Santo Mining with the Dominican Mining office. The preliminary claim or "Denuncia" is strategically located two kilometers due south of Barrick Gold's World Class "Pueblo Viejo" mine and totals 105 hectares. This location is inside the mineral rich Maimon Formation shared with Perilya Gold's operating "Cerro de Maimon" mine 4-5 kilometers northwest and Xstrata Falconado massive nickel complex also to the northwest.

This is now one of two 100% owned claims strategically located close to Barrick and Perilya and the first claim to be actually staked by the Company. The preliminary claim is valid for 30 days during which time the Company can apply for an exploration concession valid for three years plus two one year renewals. CEO Al French states "The vacant area was discovered on Thursday during a routine check of the Dominican Mining Office records. This systematic detailed weekly checking has again been proven to be a successful strategy to build a company's property assets. I have instructed our exploration team to make a preliminary field inspection of this windfall claim in the next few days. If they confirm the area is promising we will immediately file an application for an exploration concession to lock in the claim."
