Outcrop's Santa Ana project covers 36,000 hectares, but only 942 hectares have been drilled till now. The business now has 5,988 hectares of exploratory drilling rights.
FREMONT, CA: The National Mining Agency of Colombia has granted Outcrop titles totaling up to 5,046 hectares at the Santa Ana high-grade silver mine that contains in networks from Royal Santa Ana to Frias. Multiple vein targets located north and south of Santa Ana have also been located by Outcrop's team.
The Santa Ana project covers 36,000 hectares, but only 942 hectares have been drilled, yielding seven ore shoots. The business now has 5,988 hectares of exploratory drilling rights along the major trend of veins that extends north of the former Royal Santa Ana Mines and 20 km southwest to the Frias Mine. Numerous old mining regions have great potential at depth and aid in the discovery of new shoots. Outcorps’ exploration team discovered seven fresh vein targets north and south of Santa Ana in the second half of 2021. The additional targets will be drilled in early 2022.
Vice President of Exploration Jesus Velador said in a statement that the Outcrop's new titles and the finding of seven new high-grade vein prospects appeared to be extremely promising and promised fresh drilling sites with possible high-grade shoots in 2022. He believes that Outcrop is on target to fully develop its Santa Ana project in 2022.
According to Outcrop's CEO Joseph Hebert, these additional objectives and titles would play a crucial role in assisting their goal of reaching a total of twelve high-quality shoots in 2022.
The Outcrop exploration team has uncovered seven new vein prospects, all with good silver and gold values on the surface as well as a simple access. Surface permitting has begun to prioritise drilling the sites in early 2022. Meanwhile, Outcrop's CSR teams will engage communities in the properties to the south, including the Frias Mine region.
