Zinc One Resources Inc (TSX-V:Z) released the results of its drilling program at the Bongará Zinc Mine project in north-central Peru.
The hole called MGC18051, showed 24.1% zinc over a length of 28.1 meters, or 19.9 vertical meters, was the best intercept of those drill holes reported and defined continuity of mineralization in the northeastern sector of the project, the company said.
"These Mina Grande Centro results give us a better perspective of the deposit geometry and size," said Bill Williams, the interim CEO of Zinc One.
"After drilling 64 holes for 2,237 meters in this sector, we have outlined the extent of the mineralization not mined to the north, west, and south and demonstrated that high-grade zinc mineralization is open to the northeast and east. We expect this sector to make an important contribution to the overall resource estimate," he added.
Mina Grande Centro is a part of one of the three zones of high-grade, near-surface zinc-oxide mineralization along a 1.4 kilometer mineralized trend that was tested by this drill program.
Zinc One Resources acquires, explores for, and develops mineral properties in Canada, Peru, and Africa. The company is based in Vancouver.
