Maiden drilling begins at Azure’s Sara Alicia gold-cobalt project

Diamond drilling of the first hole of a five-hole programme has started on Azure Minerals Ltd’s 100%-owned Sara Alicia gold-cobalt project, located in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.

High-grade gold and cobalt mineralisation was historically exploited by small-scale underground mining in the 1930s. Azure’s first-pass sampling of opencast and underground exposures confirmed the presence of this mineralised zone, returning high grades of gold and cobalt up to maximum values of 39g/t gold and 7% cobalt.

A reconnaissance drill programme has been designed to test this zone with an initial five holes totalling approximately 450 m of diamond core planned. Azure noted in a media release that a followup drill programme may be undertaken, depending upon initial results.
