Azucar Minerals Ltd announced results from its ongoing drilling program at the El Cobre porphyry copper-gold project in Veracruz State, Mexico. Drilling results reported come from holes EC-19-065 and EC-19-070 at the Norte Zone, holes EC-19-068 and EC-19-072 at the Suegro Zone, and holes EC-19-071, EC-19-074 and EC-19-076 at the Villa Rica Zone. Mr J Duane Poliquin, Chairman of Azucar, said that “We continue to move forward with our systematic two year intensive drill program at the El Cobre project. The results to date again indicate the potential for large scale porphyry mineralization in multiple porphyry centers over a 5 kilometer trend. Our ongoing exploration drill program is designed to find as yet undiscovered porphyry intrusive centers and to provide the geologic framework for discovery and extension of known mineralization within a very large area of intense alteration. We look forward to reporting drill results as the program continues. In the meantime induced polarization geophysical surveys, soil surveys, surface mapping and geologic interpretation of all data and drill core is underway to best use the results towards future discovery oriented drilling.”
