Antioquia Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AGD) has announced the commencement of the 2011 drill program at the Cisneros Project in Antioquia, Colombia.
The planned 10,000m diamond drill program will be primarily focused on targets within the Pacho Luis and Manuela concessions.
Surface geochemistry, trenching, and ground geophysical anomalies coincident with underground artisanal mining has defined several new drill targets on the Pacho Luis concession (Papi and El Cerro) which will be the first to be drilled. On the Manuela concession the 2011 drill program will also extend the previously drilled Nus and Guiaco structures along strike and to depth and will test IP targets that are coincident with soil and surface geochemical anomalies in the vicinity of artisanal mining within the Manuela concession. Antioquia continues to evaluate results at the Guayabito prospect obtained at the end of 2010 and anticipates additional drilling at Guayabito in 2011 intended to extend gold mineralization along both strike and to depth.
MPX Geophysics Ltd. has completed the previously announced 1,500 line kilometre helicopter-borne geophysical (magnetometer and radiometric) survey at the Cisneros Project (refer to press release of February 17, 2010). The geophysical survey covered the entire 5,360 hectare project area and final interpretation is expected sometime in March. The results will assist in further defining the overall 2011 drill program.
