      Drilling Program by AUMN – What’s new?

      On 10th November 2021, AUMN announced the results of the drilling program. The company reported that it had finished the Rodeo gold-silver mine in Durango, Mexico recently. Rodeo’s drilling efforts in 2021 included 47 RC holes totaling 3,187m and 35 diamond holes totaling 2461m. The diamond drilling program concentrated on investigating various near-mine exploration prospects, whereas the RC drilling program focused on resource growth. The current publication, which includes findings from 21 RC and 6 diamond drill holes, is the third since the drill program began. Wide zones of high-grade gold mineralization have been intersected by drilling, which is surrounded by a vast zone of low-grade, scattered gold and silver mineralization.

      So what?

      The drill regimen has been really promising. AUMN uncovered a zone of scattered gold-silver mineralization surrounding the high-grade core. Not only this, but the company was able to extend the high-grade mineralization to the north and south of the open pit. Lastly, the company is now studying the data and will update the resource model and mine plan as needed once they know the scope of the probable mineralized material additions.
