16-hole, 2500m RC drill program to test vertical and horizontal continuity of mineralisation at Las Animas and Evangelina zones and significance of Santa Eduviges Junction
Santana Minerals Limited (“Santana”) is pleased to advise that after the completion of necessary earthworks a new program of reverse circulation (“RC”) drilling has now commenced at the Company’s flagship Cuitaboca Project in Sinaloa, Mexico.
During April/May essential earthworks were undertaken by a local Mexican engineering and construction firm. The completed works comprised cutting new roads along the Las Animas and Evangelina vein structures at the Mojardina Prospect to permit drill pad positioning and enhance drill rig access both within the known mineralised zones and further south along strike.
The Company has now commenced a 16-hole, ~2500m RC program designed to test the vertical and horizontal continuity of mineralisation across the Las Animas and Evangelina zones of the Mojardina prospect. With previously undertaken diamond saw trenching and phase 1 and 2 RC drilling having established the existence of these vein systems and the potential for bulk tonnage silver mineralisation, the current RC drill campaign’s objective is to track the interpreted vein systems along strike and at depth. The program is also designed to test the significance of the junction of the Santa Eduviges and Mojardina systems.
