Workplan for remainder of 2021
The primary focus of the work for the Copalquin District is the completion of a maiden JORC resource estimate for El Refugio whilst continuing the expansive drilling to further test the depth and westerly extensions at El Refugio.
Further drill holes are also planned at El Cometa to follow-up the shallow bonanza grade intercept of drill hole CDH- 072 6.8m @ 74 g/t gold, 841 g/t silver from 35.2m (ASX Announcement 15 June 2021) and to develop the geologic interpretation of this area.
In the last quarter of 2021, engineering study work will commence for the development of an exploration access road into the district and an underground exploration drift at El Refugio. An underground drift at El Refugio, taking advantage of the topography, will allow more efficient exploration drilling to develop the El Refugio resource.
ABOUT THE COPALQUIN GOLD SILVER PROJECT
The Copalquin mining district is located in Durango State, Mexico and covers an entire mining district of 70km2 containing several dozen historic gold and silver mines and workings, ten of which had notable production. The district is within the Sierra Madre Gold Silver Trend which extends north-south along the western side of Mexico and hosts many world-class gold and silver deposits.
Multiple mineralisation events, young intrusives thought to be system-driving heat sources, widespread alteration together with extensive surface vein exposures and dozens of historic mine workings, identify the Copalquin mining district as a major epithermal centre for Gold and Silver.
Mithril Resources is earning 100% interest in the Copalquin District mining concessions via a purchase option agreement detailed in ASX announcement dated 25 November 2019.
