Latin American Minerals Inc.(TSXV:LAT) announced that recent drill results from its Paso Yobai project confirmed extending the discovery trend at the property. Drill intersections at the property confirm the extension of the zone to the northwest of the Independencia mine pit.
As quoted in the press release:
These results imply a continuous gold bearing structure occurring near surface over 1000 m extent of the trend, extending northwest from the more intensively explored Discovery Zone. The most distant trench is located 2100 metres northwest of the Mina Independencia open pit.
Latin American Minerals, CEO, Miles Rideout, quoted:
These new results from the Discovery Trend program significantly expand the near-surface gold mineralization northward from the Independencia Mine open pit. These data will be used to plan northward pit extensions for bulk testing and to schedule further exploration northward to cover the entire Discovery Trend. We are also working in two other exploration areas of the project. The Paso Yobai epithermal gold system has an impressive footprint and it continues to grow as we explore.
