Altiplano Commences Farellon Drilling to Expand CU-AU Mineralization at Depth
EDMONTON, April 29, 2019 – Altiplano Metals Inc. (TSXV: APN) (OTCQB: ALTPF) (WKN: A2JNFG)
(“Altiplano” or the “Company”) has commenced underground diamond drilling at the historic Farellon Copper-Gold Mine near La Serena, Chile.
CEO John Williamson stated, “With the positive indications of the last two quarters, we are looking forward to commencing diamond drilling beneath the 395M level to confirm the down-dip continuity and grade of the Farellon Vein system, as well as to use the data for continued development of the Hugo decline for access.”
The diamond drill program will comprise 6-8 holes drilled from the Hugo decline along a strike length of up to 250 beneath the highest grade sections of the Farellon vein system. The holes are planned to intersect the vein at points 20m and 40m beneath the 395M level in a diamond pattern. The results of this drilling will also be used to guide the planned location of the extension of the Hugo decline for future access to these lower levels.
