Cayden drills 20m of 1.7 g/t Au at Azteca and adds second drill to the Peña de Oro gold target
VANCOUVER, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Cayden Resources Inc. (TSXV: CYD) (OTCQX: CDKNF) ("Cayden" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received the final drill results from its initial phase of drilling at Azteca and has added a second drill rig to its Peña de Oro drilling program.
Hole 41, the last hole drilled at Azteca, intersected 20 meters averaging 1.70 g/t Au and each of the last 4 holes intersected the targeted mineralized structures. Throughout the Azteca drilling, the structures appeared to have increasing copper grades at depth associated with chalcopyrite mineralization. Please see the plan map at www.caydenresources.com for drill hole locations.

The Company is encouraged by the results of its initial drill program at Azteca which has confirmed the presence of significant gold mineralization along the portion of the target's strike length that was tested. There are several open targets remaining at Azteca that will be followed up in subsequent drill programs.
As a result of the success in Azteca drilling and numerous outcropping targets at El Barqueño, a second drill rig has been added to expedite and increase the ongoing exploration programs. The Company is currently drilling the Peña de Oro with both drills where previous trenching has yielded highly prospective widths and grades of gold mineralization. Once permits are received, one of the drills will be moved to the Angostura and Zapote targets to test additional outcropping mineralization previously discovered through surface trenches.
President and CEO, Ivan Bebek stated: "The El Barqueño project is at an exciting stage of exploration as a result of the significant surface gold mineralization confirmed through initial drilling in the Azteca target. There are currently 8 additional targets identified through surface exploration and historical work that share similar geological characteristics as seen at Azteca and which only represent approximately 60% of the total concession explored to date. The Company is in an excellent position financially to rapidly advance its exploration programs for the potential discovery of multiple gold deposits throughout the 465 sq. km land position."
On Behalf of the Board, Ivan Bebek, President and CEO
Qualified Person - David Hladky, P. Geo. is the Qualified Person with respect to NI 43-101 at Barqueño. All core is drilled at HQ diameter and is sawed or split into equal halves on site. All samples are assayed using standard 30 gram fire assay with atomic absorption finish by Acme Labs in Vancouver, Ca. QA/QC programs using internal standard samples, field and lab duplicates, re-assays, and blanks indicate good accuracy and precision in a large majority of standards assayed. As the mapped mineralized corridors strike EW to ENE, the drill holes were designed to have azimuths perpendicular or close to perpendicular to the strike. As this is the first drill program by Cayden, the dips of the structures are not entirely known but are believed to dip steeply to moderately based on mapping and historical work, and thus the true widths of the intercepts are estimated to be 60-80% of the true width. Intercepts were calculated assuming a bulk-mining scenario, with a width cutoff of three meters and grade cutoff of 0.5 g/t Au or 0.2% Cu.
