Following up on the success of the 2020 drilling program consisting of 9 drill holes and 2,400 metres, Camino will now expand exploration targets along the 10 km Diva Trend in 2021. Drill targeting will focus on large alteration anomalies to the north of the 2020 drill program as well as to the south to target large geochemical anomalies. The company has identified copper and gold in recent artisanal mining to the north, with mineralized fault breccia. To the south, the company will target copper oxide outcrops, flow breccia outcrops, geochemical and geophysical anomalies that are controlled by the Diva Trend.
The company is advancing a maiden resource at Adriana and plans to complete an additional 10,000 metres of drilling before publication of a NI-43-101 resource on the property
Geophysical surveys with strong magnetic anomalies along the Diva Trend and statistics developed by our geological team based on fluorescence (xrf) analysis on soils provide exploration targets along the Diva Trend from Natty in the south to Condori, Lourdes, and Lidia in the north of the Diva Trend. Three major trends have now been identified for exploration: the Diva, Atajo, and Lagunillas Trends. The combination of rock chip sampling, fluorescence analysis, and pre-2020 drilling allowed us to delineate new exploration areas such as the Atajo zone that extends over 10 km and the new Lagunillas structure that extends over 3 km. The Lagunillas structure trends parallel to the main Diva Trend structure, with rock chip grades of up to 3.45% copper in the northern sector. Rock chip grades reach 10.85% copper along the parallel Atajo Trend.
