Cabo Drilling Corp. Awarded Second Underground Drilling Contract

Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) announces that its Eastern European branch, located in Tirana, Albania, has been awarded an initial 1,250 meter up-hole NQ underground drilling contract by Empire Mining Corporation (TSX-V: EPC) (“Empire”) at its Bulqiza 1440 Project, which forms part of Empire’s Bulqiza-Batra License.

The Company has mobilized an electric Atlas Copco Diamec U-6 to the property and drilling has commenced.

Cabo Drilling’s Eastern European branch successfully completed a surface program for Empire Mining at Bulqiza in 2010 and recently completed an underground program on its Thekna Project, which also forms part of the Bulqiza-Batra License at Empire’s wholly owned Bulqiza chromite project in Albania.  Four diamond core holes, totaling 1,550 meters, were successfully completed at Thekna with the drilling confirming the continuity of the mineralization indicated in drill logs from the 1990’s.

Terry Aimone, Cabo’s General Manager-Europe states “Cabo is pleased to continue our relationship with Empire in the Bulqiza area. Our safety first approach to drilling aligns perfectly with Empire’s occupational health and safety mandate on its properties.”
