In a major milestone for the La Romana near surface copper/tin/silver project in Mexico, Pan Global continues to expand their drilling operations through the area. After drilling over 15,000 meters (1.35 km) in the last two months, results have showed a significant strike of minerals including copper, tin, and silver, with grades higher than was expected.
Pan Global is now in the process of drilling additional core samples in a total area of 25,000 meters. Since beginning operations in La Romana, Pan Global has discovered ore containing oxide copper/tin/silver at surface and from bedrock. Through assays and channel sampling, it was determined that the area has a longer strike of mineralization from what was originally estimated.
The strike now extends to approximately 1.35 kilometers in length, and shows substantial copper/tin/silver mineralization. Pan Global believes that this could be an indication of potential massive ore bodies within the La Romana area, but the final answer cannot be found until they have completed their drilling program. The area is of particular note as it is close to existing infrastructure, easy to access, and showing higher grade ore than anticipated.
With additional resources confirmed in the area, Pan Global has taken a major step forward in advancing the La Romana project. The strike of copper/tin/silver mineralization extending to 1.35 kilometers is a huge indication of potential production through La Romana, and gives confidence that the project will be a major success for the company. As drilling continues, these resources will be further explored, and Pan Global will be on the lookout for any further ore bodies that may be present in the area.
