The potential size of the Filo del Sol copper-gold project is growing in San Juan province, Argentina. Filo (TSX: FIL; NFNGM: FIL; OTCQX: FLMMF) (formerly Filo Mining) released assay results from three holes testing extensions to the Aurora and Bonita zones and the Gemelos target at the Filo del Sol project.
Drill hole FSDH083 extends the Filo-Aurora trend 260 metres to the northeast with 1,131 metres at 0.57% copper-equivalent (CuEq) from 419 metres including 112 metres at 0.70% CuEq from 560 metres and 210 metres at 0.80% CuEq from 970 metres.
Drill hole FSDH085 expands the Bonita zone 700 metres to the east with 879 metres at 0.47% CuEq from 320 metres including 8.0 metres at 7.09% CuEq from 18 metres and 456 metres at 0.53% CuEq from 658 metres. A shallow intermediate sulphidation breccia vein intersected at 18 metres depth in FSDH085 is similar in style to the Maranceles veins which outcrop some 600 metres to the north of this hole.
Commenting on the results, Filo president and CEO Jamie Beck said, "Aurora continues to grow towards Bonita with hole 83. We currently have three holes underway which will provide critical information on the potential continuity of mineralization between these two zones."
Beck said the results demonstrate “Bonita's significant potential size and dramatically expanding the size of the mineralized footprint at Filo [del Sol].”
Nine rigs are now active on the project, and winter drilling is focused on Aurora infill and the Aurora-Bonita gap.
