THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – June 20, 2017) – Mexican Gold Corp. (“Mexican Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:MEX) is pleased to announce a 3,000 metre diamond drilling program for its Las Minas gold – copper – silver project. The drilling program targets expansion of the recently discovered mineralization at the Cinco Senores zone as well as step-out drilling at the El Dorado / Juan Bran zone to extend the on-strike and down-dip mineralization. Additionally, a field exploration program, consisting of trenching, sampling and mapping will be carried out at the Santa Cruz zone to test the upward continuation of the zone above the area of previous drilling. Trenching, sampling and mapping will also be undertaken at the Pueblo Nuevo concession to further outline the quartz veins recently sampled at the site.
Brian Robertson, President and CEO, stated, “The exploration program is focused on three high priority mineralized zones at Las Minas. The program combines a geophysical survey with expansion and discovery diamond drilling and preliminary field exploration work. We believe the program will expand the resource at El Dorado – Juan Bran and lead to the discovery of new zones of mineralization at both Cinco Senores and Santa Cruz. The Pueblo Nuevo concession, with its numerous historical high-grade mines, is a high-priority target area.”
