Arizona Metals Corp announced that drilling is currently underway at its Kay Mine Project, located near Black Canyon City in Arizona. The first drill was delivered to site on Thursday, May 21, 2020, and began turning on Friday, May 22, 2020. The second drill is scheduled to be delivered on Thursday, May 28, 2020. Prior to the temporary suspension of the Phase 1 drill program due to the Covid-19 pandemic, seven holes were drilled into the shallowest part of the North Zone, of which six intersected copper-gold massive sulphide mineralization. A single hole was drilled into the South Zone and intersected gold-zinc massive sulphide mineralization at a vertical depth of 575 m.

Hole KM-20-09 intersected 6.1 m at a grade of 4.2 g/t gold and 8.0% zinc, at a vertical depth of 570 m in the South Zone. Hole KM-20-10 is currently underway and is targeting the 1500-foot level of the South Zone, at a vertical depth of 500 m. On completion of hole KM-20-10, the Company intends to use it as a trunk hole, from which at least two branch holes will be wedged; holes KM-20-10A and KM-20-10B. The Company is targeting hole KM-20-14 to test the extensions of this gold-zinc rich intersection in the South Zone. This hole is intended to be a trunk hole, from which at least two branch holes will be wedged, holes KM-20-14A and KM-20-14B.

It is expected that hole KM-20-11 will start on Friday, May 29, 2020, once the second drill has been delivered to site. This hole will target the 1500-foot level of the North Zone, at a vertical depth of 500 m, expanding confidence in the zone at depth as the first 6 holes targeted only to a depth of 170 m. On completion, the Company intends to use this hole as a trunk hole, from which at least two branch holes will be wedged, holes KM-20-11A and KM-20-11B. The use of branch holes, combined with directional drilling, has the potential to significantly reduce the cost and time to reach individual drill targets, while also improving the accuracy of targeting. Hole KM-20-12 is targeted at historic gold- and copper-rich samples on the 1350-foot level of the South Zone. Hole KM-20-13 is targeted at historic gold- and copper-rich samples on the 1000-foot level of the North Zone.
