Orosur Mining drills 5.32 m of 17.76 g/t Au at Anza
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.
(See OMI Table 1 on page 17)
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.”
We seek Safe Harbor.
