Aztec Minerals Intersects 0.87 g/t Gold Over 152.4 Metres At Cervantes
Additional results are in for the recently completed drill program conducted by Aztec Minerals (TSXV: AZT). The firm this morning released results from an additional four drill holes, which follows results released two weeks ago highlighted by 0.53 g/t gold over 138.32 metres.
The latest results again come from the California Zone at the firms Cervantes property, found in Sonora, Mexico. The company continues to intersect mineralization at the target, with every drill hole under this years program so far having intersected oxidized gold mineralization near surface.
Highlights from this mornings results include:
- CAL22-011: 0.43 g/t gold over 132.2 metres
- CAL22-012: 0.87 g/t gold over 152.4 metres
- CAL22-013: 0.21 g/t gold over 7.7 metres
- CAL22-014: 0.48 g/t gold over 54.9 metres
The four drill holes released this morning expanded the known mineralized zone to the north as well as to depth. The zone as a whole now has a depth of 265 metres, while measuring 900 metres long and up to 500 metres wide.
“These intersections continue to expand the oxide gold mineralized zone at California. This discovery further advances the California gold zone in demonstrating the open pit heap leach gold potential of the project. The Cervantes 2021-2022 RC drill program continues to return strong gold grades over broad widths in every drill hole reported to date,” commented CEO Simon Dyakowski.
Drilling under the phase two program is now complete, with a total of 26 drill holes having been conducted across 4,649 metres in aggregate. Results from the final eight holes are still waiting to be received by the company. With the drill program complete, the firm is now carrying on with its phase one program, which is focused on expanding surface sampling and mapping of the larger Cervantes property, while also conducting additional channel sampling.
