The company said the exploration program for the next three months will focus on a northeast-trending Miocene volcanic belt known as the Shincata Gold Trend that is host to the El Mozo epithermal gold deposit and also includes several anomalous areas.
Three exploration crews have started reconnaissance field geological work to assess known areas with the highest potential for the occurrence of gold mineralization, and areas that have never previously been explored by the company.
In a statement, Lucky’s chief executive Adrian Rothwell said: "Lucky Minerals is excited to commence field exploration on the Fortuna Project and, in particular, on the newly defined Shincata Gold Trend on the property. The company expects this initial program to be for a three-month period, and critical to defining drill targets."
Lucky is focused on targeting large-scale mineral systems in proven districts with the potential to host world-class deposits. The company owns the Fortuna project as well as the Emigrant Creek site in southern Montana.
