Drilling Program on Arroyo Carpintero (Ponton)
The recent results of the Induced Polarization Survey indicate that there is a large, deep, and strong chargeability anomaly that is centred on Majagual Hill. There is a strong resistivity signature which has a strong correlation with the chargeability. Additionally, there is a positive correlation between the locations of both the resistivity and chargeability anomalies with elevated concentrations of gold and copper in the soil and rocks. This signature is indicative of a potential large-scale copper porphyry system. (reference: News Release of December 14, 2016)
Geologically, the Arroyo Carpintero project is part of a series of volcanic centers that developed during the formation of the Island Arc. The Pueblo Viejo deposit seems to be in the Northwestern most volcanic centre; Arroyo Carpintero lies in the Central volcanic centre and deposits such as the ones in the Bayaguana Region are interpreted to be in the Southeastern end of this belt.
Everton has outlined seven diamond drill holes that range between 400 and 600 meters in length with a program total of 3,000 meters to be started in early February 2017.
