Aztec Minerals Reports Largest Intersect To Date Of 1.49 g/t Gold Over 136.8 Metres
Results continue to be released by Aztec Minerals (TSXV: AZT) from their recently completed drill program. Drilling took place at the firms Cervantes property in Sonora, Mexico, where it previously intersected 1.0 g/t gold over 167.2 metres under the same program.
The results released this morning consist of the best drill intersection to date for the company, while all three holes reported long intersections of mineralization. All holes under the current program have meanwhile seen near surface mineralization. Highlights from the results this morning include:
- CAL22-005: 1.486 g/t gold over 136.80 metres
- CAL22-006: 0.75 g/t gold over 100.32 metres
- CAL22-007: 0.422 g/t gold over 63.84 metres
Drill under the now completed program was focused on expanding upon results achieved during a phase one program conducted over the 2017-2018 drill season. The results released today extend mineralization of the zone to both the north and the south.
“CAL22-05 intersected the strongest gold mineralization at Cervantes in the project’s history. This discovery further advances the California gold zone in demonstrating the open pit heap leach gold potential of the project. Overall, the 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 on the results.
A further fifteen holes are awaiting assays to be returned from the phase two drill program.
