Cascadero commences drilling at Taron, Argentina

Cascadero Copper {TSX.V: CCD} has confirmed that after several weeks delay due to adverse weather conditions, drilling has commenced drilling on their Taron property, in Argentina.

Taron is a Cesium project, an extremely rare metal.



Cascadero plans to drill 29 vertical HQ3 core holes to a planned depth of 75 metres for a total of 2,175 metres in completing a grid style pattern that will test an area of about 1.6 kms2 of the property.


The area was drilled in seven previous drill holes in 2009, and the geological model is based on 5,600 metres of trenches and over 6,000 assays from 2005 to 2007. The program is expected to take around 50 days to complete.


About Cesium

Cesium (chemical symbol Cs) is a rare metal best known for its extreme chemical reactivity. Cesium hydroxide forms the start point of myriad end uses, including Cesium Formate (CsCHO2), the industries premium drilling and completion fluid.


Cesium Formate is an environmentally benign solution with a high-density and low-viscosity used to control formation pressures and temperatures in drilling of deep oil wells (HPHT). As a dense medium, cesium formate is used to separate DNA and in metallurgical testing and is also well known for artificially produced radioactive isotopes used to treat various types of cancer.


Cesium compounds and chemicals are used in photo-emissive devices, experimental magneto-hydrodynamic electricity generation, atomic clocks for telecommunications and GPS navigation systems, catalysts in plastic manufacturing, speciality glasses, ion propulsion rocket motors, high-density alkaline batteries, coatings for solar cells, and petroleum refining. Research continues to generate new applications for cesium compounds.


The Company has retained GeoSim Services Inc. who will act as the Qualified Person (QP) for the program. This news release and its technical content has been read and approved by Dr. David Trueman who is a qualified person acting for the Company.
