April 26, 2011
Vancouver, B.C. – The Board of Directors of Dajin Resources Corp. (“Dajin”) (DJI: TSX-V) reports that a hydrologist from AMEC Earth and Environmental, one of the world’s leading environmental and engineering consulting firms is currently sampling Hole #1 and Hole #2 of Dajin’s initial drill program located on private land at the north end of the Salinas Grandes/ Guayatayoc salar in northwestern Argentina. The first hole was drilled to a depth of 301 meters and cased with perforated plastic casing to the bottom. The second hole was drilled and cased with identical materials to a depth of 320 meters. These two holes are the first of a planned exploration program designed to drill deeperthan is common in the region to date to test the deeper and possibly denser brines in the older sections of the salar basin.

Uncharacteristic wet conditions in the region have reduced access to the salar and the sampling of the drill holes. When the sampling program is completed the samples from the brine bearing aquifers will be delivered tothe Alex Stewart lab in Mendoza, Argentina for analysis. The results from the sampling program will be reported when received from the lab.
Brian Findlay, President and CEO reports, “We are very pleased that the rain and flooding has subsided and after numerous unexpected delays we are now back on track with our exploration program. With results pending from our first 2 holes, and the area potential for potash and lithium, this is an exciting time for Dajin shareholders.”
Other potash /lithium companies currently exploring in northwestern Argentina, a part of the “lithium triangle” which is reported to be responsible for 80% of the worlds lithium production, includes Orocobre Limited (ORL: TSX-T) backed by Toyota and Lithium Americas Inc. (LAC: TSX-T) backed by Mitsubishi. Orocobre previously sampled it’s concessions and announced, “Extensive pit sampling at the Salinas Grandes salar shows the highest average lithium and potassium grades in Argentina and comparable with Atacama brines.”
