Apogee Minerals Ltd. (CVE:APE) reports assay results from seven additional diamond drill holes from an ongoing drill campaign at the Pulacayo deposit, Bolivia.
The press release is quoted as saying:
The holes were drilled to continue delineation of the deposit along strike east of the previously released National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101″) resource. Diamond drilling, undertaken in 2010, successfully extended the deposit an additional 350 meters east of the current resources.
Apogee Minerals’ President and P. Geo., Chris Collins says:
“We are very encouraged by the latest results from the ongoing drilling program at Pulacayo. In particular with DDH PUD 169 which was a very aggressive step-out, approximately 300 meters along strike east of our previous drilling and we were rewarded with a high grade silver intercept. Our focus in the near term will now be to in-fill in the area between PUD 169 and the drilling completed throughout 2010 (See figure 2 and 3 below). We have a third drill rig scheduled to commence in early March which will accelerate this process.”
