Drilling highlights from the APTA target included 5.47 grams per tonne gold over 4.63 metres, 1.68 grams over 1 metre, including 193.2 parts per million copper and 1.22% zinc, and 17.76 grams gold over 5.32m, including 4,724.7 ppm copper and 4.84% zinc.
Since mid-October, Orosur has drilled three holes of its planned 15,000m diamond drilling programme.
“These initial results are extremely encouraging, supporting the presence of high gold mineralization over significant intervals and increasing confidence in the mineral body beyond the 17,000m of previous drilling prior to the acquisition of the project by OMI,” said chief executive Ignacio Salazar.
“These results are merely the beginning of Orosur’s first drilling campaign at APTA. APTA mineralization remains open at depth and along strike.”
