Candente Resource Corp. is pleased to announce the recruitment of Mr. Chris Verrico and Ms. Lola Montagne. Mr. Verrico brings 25 years of exploration, contract mining and mine development experience to Candente's team, having worked throughout northern B.C.& Yukon, Nunavut and Alaska. Mr. Verrico will be tasking Investor Relations and advising management on logistics and operational issues for resource development in the rural and remote regions of Peru.

Ms. Lola Montagne, born in Lima Peru, has lived in Canada for 12 years and her experience includes the performance of executive assistant duties for the President and CEO of Manhattan Minerals Corp. Ms. Montagne's previous experience working as an Administrative Assistant for various corporate entities in Peru (including mining companies) brings a keen understanding of Peruvian business, social and cultural issues and she is a welcome addition to the management team. Ms. Montagne is assuming the position of Executive Assistant to the company President and CEO and will also assist with Investor Relations.

The Prospector magazine predicted a few years ago that the present level of exploration activity in Peru would culminate in a world class discovery every year for the next 10 years. Recent discoveries at Yanacocha, Pierina, Tambo Grande, Antamina and recently the possibilities for Luicho suggest Peru is fulfilling this prediction.

Candente Resource Corp. has been exploring in Peru since 1997 and currently holds an interest in five epithermal gold prospects, two porphyry copper-gold prospects and three volcanogenic massive sulphide prospects. A comprehensive overview and property portfolio for Candente Resource Corp. is available on the web at www.candente.com. Please feel free to contact Chris Verrico at 604 689-1957 or at investor@candente.com for more information on our properties and their potential to place Candente Resource Corp. on the leading edge for resource development in this emerging prolific region.
