VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 24, 2023 / Infinitum Copper Corp. (TSXV:INFI)(OTCQB:INUMF) ('Infinitum' or the 'Company') is pleased to announce the start of drilling at its flagship 6,450 hectare La Adelita property (the 'Property') located in Sonora, Mexico. The program, consisting of 15 diamond drill holes totalling 2,500m, is designed to expand the size of the high-grade mineralised area at Cerro Grande zone as well as test for mineralisation at depth in the Las Trancas zone.
CERRO GRANDE ZONE
9 drill holes are programmed for the Cerro Grande zone. The objective of the program is to expand the known high-grade mineralisation by stepping out to the north and west of previous drill holes.
- 2022 drilling by the Company and earlier drilling by Minaurum Gold produced outstanding results including:
- AD-22-0021 (20.9m of 0.67% CuEq from 34.5m);
- AD-22-0019 (34.65m of 1.98% CuEq from 36.5m);
- AD-22-0020A (22.25m of 0.98% CuEq from 39m);
- AD-22-18 (36.65m of 2.75% CuEq from 153m);
- AD-22-28 (48.7m of 1.22% CuEq from 199.4m);
- CGDD-10-001 (16.0m of 2.07% CuEq from 35.7m);
- CGDD-10-002 (46.4m of 1.02% from 35.6m);
- 2022 magneto telluric geophysics study ('MT') was received after the completion of 2022 drilling and showed large anomalous responses beneath the Cerro Grande anticline and on the west flank.
- Guided by the the 2022 MT survey and previous high-grade drill results, the 2023 program aims extend the north-south extent of mineralisation out to 500m and step out up 700m west of the known mineralisation.
'Historic drilling has demonstrated that the mineralised body at Cerro Grande has significant vertical extent. The current drill program has the potential to extend the north south strike to over 500 metres while drilling on the western flank could demonstrate mineralisation 700m away from the 2022 high grade drill holes. We want to show that it's high grade and large' stated Matt Hudson, CEO of Infinitum Copper.
LAS TRANCAS ZONE
The Las Trancas zone is approximately 5km to the south-west of Cerro Grande and is home to the feature referred to as 'Sangre del Toro' ('Bull's Blood'). There are no previous drill holes in the area. The Company's 2023 program includes 6 diamond core holes totalling 1,200m designed to test for the source of mineralisation beneath the Sangre del Toro feature.
- 2022 trenching program produced outstanding results including 9.5m of 16.45g/t Au and 1.9% Cu at Trench 2;
- 2022 MT program shows large conductive anomaly directly beneath Trench 2 extending to the east and west;
- The Sangre del Toro feature has been mapped at surface for over 2.8km north south and up to 600m east west. Historic artisanal workings at the northern extent of the feature provide further evidence that there is possibly a large, mineralised structure beneath;
- The company's 2023 drilling program will be the first drilling to ever test the Sangre del Toro feature.
'Similar to our drilling program at Cerro Grande Main zone, the holes at Sangre del Toro are designed to investigate the potential extent of mineralisation. La Adelita has shown its high-grade potential now we hope to show it has substantial size. There is a striking coincidence of evidence at Sangre del Toro and we are very excited to start drilling' stated Matt Hudson, CEO.
Results will be released to the market as they are received back from ALS in Hermosillo with the first batch of results anticipated to be received in early July.
