Element 29 Resources (TSXV: ECU) is focusing on advancing its Flor de Cobre Copper Project in Peru. After the close of markets last night, the company revealed that it has taken meaningful steps towards conducting a maiden drill program at the property.

An environmental permit for drilling, referred to as a Declaración de Impacto Ambiental, has been granted to the company, which allows for a drill program that uses up to 40 different drilling platforms at the Flor de Cobre project. Before drilling can occur however, the company is required to obtained an Authorization to Initiate Exploration Activities from the Peruvian government, which has been requested.

Surface rights agreements are also underway with the local community, which when completed, will pave the way for a drill program to take place.

Drill permits are currently estimated to be received by the third quarter.

The 1,800-hectare Flor de Cobre copper project contains the Atravesado porphyry target, which is outlined as being at least 1.5 kilometres by 2.0 kilometres in size. The target to date has been defined by outcrop samples which have been shown to be anomalous in copper and molybdenum, as well as by resistivity and chargeability anomalies. The target is believed to be a part of of a larger porphyry complex that extends towards the southeast.
