AURANIA COMMENCES DRILLING AT COPPER-SILVER TARGET IN ECUADOR
Drilling has commenced on the Tsenken N2 copper-silver target at Aurania Resources Ltd.'s Lost Cities-Cutucu project in southeastern Ecuador.
Dr. Keith Barron, chairman and chief executive officer of Aurania, commented: "I'm delighted to report that drilling has started at the Tsenken N2 target. The man-portable rig was air lifted to the first drill platform by helicopter last week and drilling started on Sunday. The lightweight rig has the capacity to drill to 800 m (2,400 feet) so that each drill hole can test both cylindrical porphyry targets as well as enclosing sheet-like sedimentary-hosted copper-silver targets."
An image on the company's website shows the exploration concept that will be drill tested at Tsenken N2: Slightly inclined sedimentary layers partially cover roughly cylindrical-shaped porphyry copper targets. The first drill holes are planned to a depth of approximately 400 m (1,200 feet). After drilling three to five holes at Tsenken N2, the plan is to move the rig to test the Tsenken N3 target.
Results will be reported as they become available, likely commencing in the latter part of October or early November.
