Azure Minerals Limited (ASX: AZS) (“Azure” or “the Company”) is pleased to report that assay results from diamond drilling have confirmed significant widths of high grade zinc-lead-silver mineralisation on its newly-acquired Oposura Project (“Oposura”), located in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.
The latest news, from drilling undertaken by the previous owners, comes as Azure is preparing its maiden drilling campaign that will be used to complete a JORC mineral resource estimate. Drilling is scheduled to start in October following permit approval.
