Adventus Zinc (TSXV:ADZN) and Salazar Resources (TSXV:SRL) has announced additional drill holes from the 2018 infill drilling program on the El Domo volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit; which is part of the approximately 22,000-hectare Curipamba project located near Las Naves, Ecuador.

The reported infill drilling program has commenced in early March 2018 with the objective of upgrading the confidence level of the higher-grade portion of the open pit constrained mineral resource by decreasing drill spacing, which will also generate material for a planned metallurgical program in the second half of 2018.

To date, drilling within higher-grade portion of the open-pit constrained Mineral Resource has successfully completed 34 out of 52 drill holes with two drill holes in progress. Approximately 6,060 metres from a planned 7,500 metre work program has been successfully completed, and this phase of infill drilling is expected to be completed by mid-third quarter 2018.
