VVC Exploration Corporation (“VVC” or the “Company”) (TSXV:VVC) announces the filing, on SEDAR, of its Financials for the period ended October 31, 2017 and provides an update on its ongoing drilling program in Mexico .
Samalayuca Drilling Update
The Company initiated exploration drilling on its Samalayuca copper project, in Chihuahua State, Mexico, in August. Permits were received for core drilling at 53 sites, in the La Gloria area, and the other known copper zones, which were exploited by artisanal miners in the 1950’s and 60’s, to evaluate the copper mineralization over the 5 km strike length of known mineralization.
The 3000-metre diamond drilling program started on August 23 after receipt of the permits, with drilling to date totalling 2,701 m in 23 holes. The drilling has tested known copper zones including La Gloria, La Gloria NW, La Gloria Extension, Thor and Zorra. The drill program closed down over the Christmas period and will start again early in the New Year testing the La Concha, Zorra and La Gloria Extension zones. Given the slow receipt of results and the various zones tested in the drilling campaign, all analytical results will be released once all data has been received and compiled.
The Company previously completed a magnetic survey covering the 5 km trend including all the known copper zones. An area of low magnetic intensity, generally coincident with, and thought to be reflective of, the alteration associated with the copper mineralization, is being used to guide the drilling
