Adventus Zinc and Salazar Resources have announced additional drill holes from the 2018 infill drilling program on the El Domo volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit near Las Naves, Ecuador.
Adventus Zinc (TSXV:ADZN) and Salazar Resources (TSXV:SRL)have announced additional drill holes from the 2018 infill drilling program on the El Domo volcanogenic massive sulfide deposit, which is part of the approximately 22,000-hectare Curipamba project located near Las Naves, Ecuador.
As highlighted in the press release:
- CURI-259 intersected 7.08 metres of 3.92 percent copper, 3.32 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold, 5.90 percent zinc, 154.9 g/t silver, and 0.74 percent lead;
- CURI-260 intersected 7.55 metres of 2.62 percent copper, 2.51 g/t gold, 5.27 percent zinc, 37.8 g/t silver, and 0.09 percent lead and
- CURI-261 intersected 8.46 metres of 4.24 percent copper, 0.54 g/t gold, 2.31 percent zinc, 16.0 g/t silver, and 0.01 percent lead.
According to the press release, infill drilling continues to yield intercepts of high-grade, gold-rich semi-massive to massive sulfide mineralization within the open-pit constrained mineral resource update for the El Domo deposit. The indicated mineral resource totals 8.8 million tonnes grading 1.62 percent copper, 2.34 g/t gold, 2.42 percent zinc, 48.0 g/t silver, and 0.27 percent lead. The inferred mineral resource totals 2.6 million tonnes grading 1.29 percent copper, 1.09 g/t gold, 1.51 percent zinc, 29.0 g/t silver, and 0.14 percent lead.
