Zincore Metals Inc. (TSX:ZNC) announced the next phase of drilling at the Dolores copper porphyry project in southern Peru. Drilling is set to begin after the end of the region’s rainy season in April.
The upcoming drill program was designed in conjunction with the Company’s Dolores project partner, First Quantum Minerals Ltd., (“First Quantum”), and will test a reinterpretation of the geological model for Dolores resulting from a comprehensive synthesis and review of all new and existing geochemical, geophysical and drilling results.
Zincore President and CEO, Jorge Benavides. said:
By drawing on First Quantum’s experience gained at their nearby Haquira project, the technical committee has been able to evaluate new drilling, trenching, aerial and ground geophysical data gathered to arrive at a new interpretation of Dolores. Given that we are talking about a huge system encompassing at least 3.5 kilometres north to south and 1.5 kilometres east to west, this information is invaluable in determining priority drill targets. By focusing on the anomalous areas which best marry all of this information, we believe we will significantly increase our chances as we continue the search for a higher grade mineralized body within the Dolores system.
