The company’s managing director said the results had the potential to significantly increase Oposura’s resource base.
Azure Minerals (ASX:AZS) has announced that resource infill and extension drilling at its Oposura project, located in Sonora Mexico, has returned further high-grade mineralization over substantial widths.
The company said that resource infill drilling confirms good internal continuity of mineralized zones:
- OPDH-184: 5.25m at 24.4 percent zinc-lead from 48.35m; including 3.05m at 39.3 percent zinc-lead
- OPDH-185: 8.65m at 11.4 percent zinc-lead from 61.15m; including 4.55m at 19.6 percent zinc-lead
- OPDH-194: 6.00m at 11.7 percent zinc-lead from 39.00m; including 2.95m at 21.9 percent zinc-lead
Managing director of Azure Tony Rovira said:
“These latest, high-grade, massive sulfide drill intersections from the sparsely drilled Central Zone confirm that this area has the potential to significantly increase Oposura’s resource base.They continue to build on the very positive results from the Oposura scoping study and confirm potential to extend the mine life and further improve the already impressive project economics.”
