Altiplano Metals Inc. (TSX-V: APN) (WKN: A2JNFG) is pleased to announce that 8 drill holes from Phase 1 of its ongoing 6,200 m underground exploration drilling program have been completed at the Farellon copper-gold mine located near La Serena, Chile.
CEO Alastair McIntyre comments, “We are pleased with the initial results from the first eight holes in the ongoing drill program. Visual inspection of the core has confirmed copper sulphide and magnetite mineralization in the Farellon vein at depth and we look forward to the completion of the program and releasing assay results in the coming weeks.”
The intent of the 6,200 m drilling program is to further delineate the iron oxide copper gold vein system at depth and to outline additional tonnage available to support the planned 5,000 tonnes/month extraction rate at Farellon. In addition, the drilling is expected to aid in grade control and optimize development.
