Emerita Resources (TSXV:EMO) has begun drilling at its Plaza Norte zinc project in Spain’s Cantabria region with joint-venture partner Aldesa Group.
Drilling is being conducted by Cantábrica del Zinc, a 50-50 joint-venture company owned by Emerita and Aldesa. Phase 1 of the diamond drill program will consist of 6,500 metres of diamond drilling and will focus on the Queveda target area at Plaza Norte.
As stated in the press release:
The phase 1 drill program aims to follow up the historical wide spaced mineralized intercepts at the Queveda target, which covers a 1.0 square kilometer area. Historical drilling intercepted sulphide mineralization hosted by two different units from top to bottom: Dolomites (Gargasian) and Limestones (Albian). The drill holes have been selected based on the review of the historical technical data and its geological interpretation.
Joaquin Merino, Emerita President, commented:
“We believe this is one of the most significant undeveloped zinc camps in Europe. We look forward to advancing the Plaza Norte project as we expect to obtain positive drill results over the coming month based on our analysis of the historical data.”
