TSX VENTURE: COR
Mr. Kenneth McNaughton reports:
VANCOUVER, May 18, 2017 /CNW/ - Camino Minerals Corporation ("Camino" or the "Company") (COR: TSX-V) is pleased to report that the Phase 2 drill program has started at its Los Chapitos Project ("Chapitos"), located in southern Peru.
The diamond drill arrived at the property on May 12 and began drilling a few days later. It is currently set up on Pad #1 and is drilling a twin hole to CHR-002 which intersected 1.30% copper over 106 meters, including 2.12% copper over 38 meters, with the hole ending in mineralization. Diamond drill hole DCH-001 is expected to drill through this mineralization and continue to a proposed depth of between 400 and 500 meters. The plans for additional drilling on the Adriana Zone will be finalized based on observations from this first hole.
The Phase 2 program has been expanded and will now total at least 3,000 meters of diamond drilling. Individual holes will range in length from 150 to 450 meters. In an effort to accelerate the pace of the program, a second diamond drill has been contracted. This drill is expected to arrive before the end of May and will begin work testing the Katty Zone. Drill results will be released as they become available.
In addition to the ongoing drill program, a number of other field activities are planned over the coming months. Field crews will continue mapping and prospecting the property. Recent work has discovered an extension of the Lourdes Zone, which is located two kilometers northwest of the Adriana Zone. The magnetic survey grid will be expanded to cover the entire 6 kilometers of the eastern trend of mineralization. Finally, the area covered by IP survey will be extended to the southeast from the current grid over the Adriana and Katty zones across to cover both the Vicky and Pilar zones.
A summary presentation, including drill plans and sections, can be found on the company website at www.caminominerals.com.
