Oro­sur Min­ing drills 5.32 m of 17.76 g/t Au at Anza

Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. Ig­na­cio Salazar re­ports

ORO­SUR MIN­ING Inc. has pro­vided a pre­lim­i­nary up­date from its cur­rent drilling pro­gram at its Apta tar­get in the com­pany’s wholly owned high-grade Anza gold project lo­cated in the Mid Cauca gold belt in Colom­bia.

High­lights from MAP 54:

• 5.47 grams per tonne gold over 4.63 me­tres from 97.1 m to 101.73 m, in­clud­ing 771.3 parts per mil­lion cop­per and 1.44 per cent zinc;

• 1.68 g/t Au over 1.0 m from 126.0 m to 127.0 m, in­clud­ing 193.2 ppm Cu and 1.22 per cent Zn;

• 17.76 g/t Au over 5.32 m from 144.50 m to 149.82 m, in­clud­ing 4,724.7 ppm Cu and 4.84 per cent Zn;

• 1.84 g/t Au over 9.28 m from 149.82 m to 159.1 m, in­clud­ing 2,398.0 ppm Cu and 2.26 per cent Zn.

Since mid-Oc­to­ber, Oro­sur has drilled three holes (962.5 m) of its planned 15,000 m di­a­mond drilling pro­gram. Par­tial sam­pling, rep­re­sent­ing just 30 per cent of the sam­ples to be an­a­lyzed from the first two holes (MAP 54 and MAP 55), was sent to SGS Lab­o­ra­tory in Medellin for as­say­ing. As­say re­sults in­clude a num­ber of high-grade gold in­ter­sect in­ter­vals as well as cop­per, zinc and other no­table byprod­ucts.

The limited as­says re­turned to date from hole MAP-55

show in­ter­est­ing gold anom­alies up to 0.26 g/t Au, which match up with the gold-bear­ing units iden­ti­fied in the area.

Ig­na­cio Salazar, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Oro­sur, said: “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 17,000 m of pre­vi­ous drilling prior to the ac­qui­si­tion of the project by OMI.

“These re­sults are merely the be­gin­ning of Oro­sur’s first drilling cam­paign at Apta. Apta min­er­al­iza­tion re­mains open at depth and along strike.”
