Drilling is well underway at the Cesar Copper-Silver project in northeastern Colombia, owned by Max Resource (TSXV: MAX). The firm this morning provided an update on the program following the mobilization announcement in late September.
To date, a total of eight holes have been drilled from four separate drill pads. Holes have been drilled to depths ranging from 53 metres to 382 metres, with a total of 1,421 metres in aggregate. Drilling to date has been conducted at the URU-C zone with chalcocite and malachite said to be observed in the core.
Drilling is now set to move to the URU-CE zone, which is found 750 metres to the east. Drilling is expected to continue through to mid-December.
“Max’s focus for this initial drill program is to identify the URU-C and URU-CE structurally controlled copper-silver mineralization at depth. We will then follow-up on multiple stratiform copper-silver targets more typically found in the Cesar basin,” commented CEO Brett Matich.
“Max maintains a robust treasury and plans to continue drilling through much of 2023 as the Company works toward significant copper discoveries which are in high demand with the world’s projected copper shortfall.”
Assays from the first eight drill holes conducted at the property are expected to be received in early December.
