A second phase of drilling at the property is now said to have begun.
In terms of the geophysical program being conducted on site, the firm is in the process of having TEM and gravimetry surveys completed. Two anomalies have been identified in initial results, referred to as Bouguer anomalies, which run parallel for 7.0 kilometres at a distance of about 800 metres apart. The northern anomaly of this has yet to be drilled, while the southern anomaly hosts the El Cura and Infanta deposits.
Geophysical studies have been put on hold currently as a result of hunting season, for the purpose of employee safety. The programs are to resume by the end of the month.
