CuOro Resources Reports Additional Drilling Results from Santa Elena Copper-Gold Project

CuOro Resources has released further results from eight holes drilled at the Santa Elena copper-gold project located in Colombia. Two drill rigs are currently mobilized at the property to continue the company’s 25,000 m Phase I drilling campaign. CuOro has completed about 19,735 m of drilling, totaling 100 holes.

The company encountered 4.9% copper over 6.0 m in hole SEDDH-84; 0.22% copper over 67.5 m in hole SEDDH-88; and 1.2% copper over 5.0 m in hole SEDDH-91.

According to Robert Sedgemore, CuOro Resources’ CEO and President, these fresh drilling results indicate that they are increasing their depth of understanding related to the project and the company continues to trace the high-grade copper, which includes huge mineralized sulphide.

Both drill holes SEDDH-84 and SEDDH-91 focused on a geophysical off-hole conductor, which was discovered from down-hole Pulse EM surveys in SEDDH-83 and SEDDH-79 holes that cut huge sulphide mineralization.

The company encountered mineralization in hole SEDDH-84 that is about 40 m beneath the surface; and in hole SEDDH-91 that is about 25 m below the surface. This freshly identified huge sulphide body is about 65 m in length. The drill program continues to outline the limits and level of the mineralized body.

CuOro continues to progress with its exploration campaign at the Santa Elena project. A phase I diamond drilling, geophysical surveying, regional and comprehensive structural and geological mapping are included in the program.

The results of the down-hole pulse EM and surface survey EM programs show a strong association with mineralization; the huge outcropping sulphides and prominent mineralization at depth. The company is encouraged by the existence of geophysical anomalies that are connected spatially with popular mineralization. The data validity has been confirmed through the drill program.
