Mar 27, 2012 (ACCESSWIRE-TNW via COMTEX) — March 27, 2012 – Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA – Atocha Resources (the Company), TSX.V – ATT reports it has engaged the services of Dany Boilard Inc. to begin work on the newly purchased 25 claim (1,475 ha) Montpellier block located in the Grenville sub-province of the Precambrian Shield in Quebec. The Grenville sub-province is considered to be highly favourable for graphite plus gold, silver, copper, nickel, PGE (platinum group element) and REE (rare earth element) mineralization.

Atocha has hired Dany Boilard Inc. to carry out detailed exploration through GIS compilation, site visits and a mass mailing to the landowners in the Montpellier property area. All property data on the MRNF E-Sigeom database will be compiled to prepare a comprehensive exploration plan for the 2012 exploration season. The location and address of the private landowners will also be determined by a mass mailing and compilation of answers to build a data base of land ownership that can be accessed for exploration, as required under articles 235 and 236 of the Quebec mining act.

The Montpellier Property is situated approximately 90km to the northwest of Montreal, Quebec in Ripon-Hartwell-Suffolk townships with good road access. Historic diamond drilling in 1965 is reported in the Ripon township portion of the property. The Suffolk township claims have reported graphite occurrences in drill core from the latter part of the 1960′s.
