Miramont to Commence Phase II Drilling at Cerro Hermoso
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 23, 2019) - Miramont Resources Corp. (CSE: MONT) (OTCQB: MRRMF) (FSE: 6MR) ("Miramont" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it will undertake Phase II diamond drilling at its Cerro Hermoso gold-polymetallic project in southern Peru. The Company anticipates drilling to commence in early May.
In a news release dated April 12, 2019, Miramont announced final results from a nine-hole program conducted earlier this year. Hole CH-009, drilled in the north central part of the targeted diatreme complex, encountered several intervals of significant mineralization. This drill hole was highlighted by 249m of 0.68 gpt Au equivalent, including a high grade sub-interval of 1.95 m of 28.7 gpt Au equivalent. Miramont believes this mineralization remains open to the southeast, east, northeast and at depth.
Nine diamond drill holes, each averaging approximately 400 m deep, are planned to follow up mineralization encountered within the diatreme complex.
Dr. Quinton Hennigh, Miramont's Executive Chairman, said: "Phase I drilling at Cerro Hermoso provided sufficient encouragement to allow our board to unanimously approve a similarly sized Phase II drill program. We are hopeful that the nine planned drill holes will expand the footprint mineralization within the diatreme complex, a pipe-like body of rock that was at one time the throat of a volcano. We are also hopeful that we might see increasing grades within areas that remain open. Volumetrically, there is considerable room left to explore within the diatreme. Phase II drilling is designed to more thoroughly evaluate the potential for a large, disseminated body of gold-polymetallic mineralization by maximizing the footprint of exploration."
Drilling is expected to be complete within approximately two months of commencement. Miramont will provide regular updates on progress during Phase II drilling.
