Hunt Mining has reported ongoing diamond drilling program results from the La Josefina Project in the Santa Cruz province, Argentina. The drilling results keep on arriving from Veta Ailin structure present in the project.
This structure has inadequate historic drill testing and is not included in the present La Josefina NI 43-101 resource estimations.
Hunt has received recent drilling assays, which confirmed the existence of high-grade mineralization of gold, silver, and base-metal along the Veta Ailin structure. The company intersects significant precious and base metal mineralization from eight of the eleven drill holes.
The company cuts 206.08 g/t gold, 89.40 g/t silver and 4.0 % lead over 0.47 meters, 228.01 g/t gold, 47.10 g/t silver and 6.1% lead over 0.50 meters and 135.31 g/t gold in hole SC-D11-255.
The hole SC-D11-252 intersects 7.14 g/t gold, 133.44 g/t silver 6.67% lead and 1.16% copper over 3.00 meters, 0.26 g/t gold, 580.00 g/t silver, 2.1% copper and 30.0% lead over 0.48 meters.
The SC-D11-258 hole encounters 1.44 g/t gold, 729.00 g/t silver, and 26.8% lead over 0.43 meters, 9.08 g/t gold, 53.70 g/t silver, and 13.9% lead over 0.48 meters.
The recent drilling comprises 12,000 meters of HQ and NQ diamond core drilling at La Josefina and El Gateado projects in order to raise the present resource base by drilling step out holes on the five discovered ore shoots. Additionally, Hunt will drill the analyzed sections of the mineralized structures.
