Aztec Minerals (TSXV: AZT) has begun a drill program at its Cervantes gold-copper project located in Sonora, Mexico. The property, which is a joint venture with Kootenay Silver (TSXV: KTN), will see a 22 hole program conducted across it.
The planned drill program is set to consist of a total of 5,000 metres in aggregate drilling across four separate targets. The program is set to take place over a three month period, starting today, with drilling targeting the California, California North, Jasper and Purisima East targets.
Drilling under the program is focused on defining known mineralization across the four targets. At California, the company is targeting an extensive oxide gold-copper porphyry via a total of 14 infill and step-out holes. Drilling is to occur on 50 metre spacing to better define mineralization, while an additional two holes will be drilled to depths of 500 metres to test the extent of a strong IP anomaly found at the target.
California North and Jasper meanwhile will each see one hole sunk as the company will testing copper-molybdenum anomalies from soil sampling. Mineralization here would represent extensions of the California zone. Finally, at Purisima East, the company will look to drill six holes focused on the breccia potential of the zone, placing an emphasis on high grade gold mineralization.
