Azure Minerals (ASX:AZS) has released the final assay results for its Oposura zinc-lead-silver project following the completion of the resource drill-out of the West Zone in Sonora, Mexico.
As quoted in the press release, managing director of Azure, Tony Rovira said:
“Pleasingly, assays from the final drilling into the West Zone continue to identify thick, high grade mineralization, with potential extensions still to be tested by future drilling. Furthermore, confirmation of the presence of mineralization within the overlying Candelaria Formation provides additional opportunities, particularly when this knowledge is combined with information from historical mining at Oposura that indicates that potential Arenillas-hosted mineralization remains untested.”
As highlighted in the press release:
- Further impressive assays received from final West Zone resource drill holes; including: 10.85m at 14.39 percent zinc-lead in OPDH-142, 4.10m at 17.34 percent zinc-lead in OPDH-097, 4.95m at 13.05 percent zinc-lead in OPDH-109, 3.60m at 15.60 percent zinc-lead in OPDH-155.
- OPDH-142 is located in the northeastern part of the West Zone and opens up potential for additional thick, high grade mineralized extensions in this area.
- Massive sulphide mineralisation confirmed in the overlying Candelaria Formation.
- Mineral resource estimate in progress and on track to be completed in June 2018.
