Focus Ventures Ltd. (TSX:FCV) announced assay results from the first three diamond drill holes from the Santa Rosa Ag-Pb-Zn project, in the northeast of Lima, Peru.

As quoted in the press release:

The best intercept returned was 169 g/t Ag + 7.8% Zn + 8.3% Pb over 10.8m from 162m downhole in hole DDH-11-03. This preliminary drilling is designed to test beneath the Ag-Zn-Pb mineralization exposed in the Santa Rosa and Milagros-Sally underground workings.

All three holes intersected mineralization which is as yet poorly constrained and open to depth in both Santa Rosa and Milagros-Sally. Drilling cut significant intervals of disseminated/fracture-controlled mineralization and narrower intervals of more massive, high grade replacement-style mineralization hosted in a sequence of brecciated quartzites and fine grained clayey sediments belonging to the Cretaceous-aged Chimu Formation. The sulphide mineralogy is simple, with sphalerite and galena accompanied by pyrite, and associated with quartz and minor chalcopyrite.
