As quoted in the press release:
Highlights of the Phase 2 program include 3.05 meters of 1.26% WO3, including 1.05 meters of 2.07% WO3, starting at a depth of 12.75 meters at Muito Seco and 3.25 meters of ).19% WO3, including 1.25 meters of 0.38% WO3, starting at a depth of 82.55 meters at Telheira. Drilling at Castelo extended tungsten-mineralized skarn in both the southwest and southeast directions in previously unexplored areas around the previously-known mineral zone. All holes were drilled vertically, and intercepts are considered to represent close to true thickness of the mostly flat-lying mineralized zones.
