Atico Mining Corporation (TSXV:ATY) announced that they have discovered a significant new massive sulfide body at the north end of known mineralization and reported drill results from the El Roble mine project in Colombia.
As quoted in the press release:
The company also reports results of seven new diamond drill core holes (ATDHR-20 through ATDHR-26), which included 119 meters of 6.9% copper and 6.3 g/t gold.
Atico’s CEO, Fernando E. Ganoza, said:
Drilling continues to discover new and extend high-grade massive sulfide copper and gold bodies in the immediate vicinity of the El Roble mine. The discovery of a major new mineralized lens at the north end of the operating mine not only adds significantly to the mineralization, but also increases the potential to discover additional mineralization below and beyond the current mine limits. I am very encouraged by results to date, as El Roble presents a significant opportunity to quickly bring newly discovered resources to production using the existing mine and mill infrastructure.
