Calibre Mining Corp has reported 2018 and 2019 drilling results from El Limon. B2Gold Corp was successful in extending gold mineralization along the El Limon vein system for over 2.5 kilometres, with high-grade intercepts at Limon Sur, Limon Central, Limon Norte, Tigra, Chaparral and Cacao vein system, as well as from the newly-developed Atravesada and Panteon underground targets. Mr Russell Ball, Chief Executive Officer of Calibrer, said “The El Limon district has produced over 3.4 million ounces of gold and I am confident that we are in a truly world-class, low-sulphidation epithermal system. B2Gold's recent drilling intercepted high-grade mineralization over substantial widths and these targets represent an excellent opportunity to expand reserves and resources, both at depth and along strike. Calibre will commence drilling at Limon Norte in early November."
