Minaurum Gold, Inc. (“Minaurum”) is pleased to announce the commencement of a minimum 5,000-m diamond drill program at its Alamos Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. The drilling will focus on seven major mineralized vein structures identified by Minaurum’s 2016-2017 sampling and mapping program. Three of these were the source of Alamos district’s historic 200 Moz high-grade silver production and may still contain overlooked silver shoots (See News Releases dated May 24, 2017 and March 16, 2017). The remaining veins lie in structurally down-dropped blocks and are exposed at a high level. Although they locally carry very high silver grades (>3000 g/t) none have seen significant production nor have they been drilled. Most of the drilling is also designed to cut completely blind veins that may exist at relatively shallow depths between the exposed veins. The target areas are shown on the accompanying map of the Alamos project area.
Drilling will be done with man-portable equipment and will begin with; mineralized structures parallel to and down dip of the previously mined La Quintera and Promontorio veins, the 500m- long previously unexplored “Gap” zone located between them, and targets below the 700m-long, 25-m-wide bulk-tonnage Minas Nuevas target.
