South American Silver Corp. (TSX:SAC,OTCQX:SOHAF) announced that drilling operations at the Escalones copper-gold project in Chile has recommenced after the recent stoppage. The access road, which was cut in fourteen places by a severe storm, has been repaired to allow the safe passage of vehicles to the Escalones site.
As quoted in the press release:
Phillip Brodie-Hall, President and CEO of the Company, said, “We are very pleased with the efforts of the work teams in Chile, which brought the road back into service sooner than expected. The early restart improves our chances of completing the full 10,500 metre program before the drilling season ends in April.”
