The sampling is to build a geoscientific database of the rock types and styles of mineralization that will represent the early foundation of a NI 43-101 compliant Technical Report. The database will aid the company in preparing a drill program as well as to qualify property mineralization in a three-dimensional grade distribution in historical dumps. It is also designed to aid in production scheduling to meet Cobra Oro mill optimal grade requirements as the dump sites could represent a large potential feed source for the Cobra Oro CIL plant.
The rock dump at the La Cobra Gold Property was sourced from five separate adits with both dump and adit samples showing significant textural fabrics consistent with low sulphidation epithermal gold/silver deposits.
