Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald states: “We are very pleased with Pan American’s work and the results to date from the first 11 holes of the program. The confirmation of multiple high-grade intercepts of silver mineralization at depth is a significant development and further indicates potential for the silver resources to be amenable to both open pit and underground exploitation. We are also very pleased that based on the encouraging results achieved to date, Pan American is extending the program by a full 2,000 meters until the end of the year.”
MX Gold Corp. is pleased to announce a binding agreement with Gracepoint Mining Corp., a subsidiary of Firma Holdings Corp. to acquire a 50% interest in the Magistral, Del Oro tailings project, which is located within the “Golden Triangle” in Santa Maria Del Oro, Durango, Mexico.
Almadex Chairman, J. Duane Poliquin commented, "These results further show the potential of the El Cobre project to host a significant gold-rich porphyry system. The Norte zone is one of four well defined porphyry centres within a very large zone of porphyry related alteration. We look forward to following up this exciting intercept with further results from our ongoing aggressive drill program focused on the goal of defining a new gold-copper resource in Mexico."
Luis Castro, Vice President of Exploration, commented, “These in-fill drill results continue to confirm high grade silver-gold mineralization over substantial true widths in the Terronera vein. The deposit is still open for expansion at depth and to the southeast, and we now have high priority drill targets identified in several other mineralized, subparallel veins to the north of the Terronera vein.
In summary, Prospero has restarted work programs on its 100%-owned projects. Management is currently prioritising and ranking the Company's key projects for joint venture. The Company has also submitted permit applications to drill the Matorral target at Santa Maria del Oro.
