Discovery Metals Receives Drill Permits for Five High Priority Ag-Zn-Pb Targets in Historic Mining Camp, Coahuila, Mexico
TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Discovery Metals Corp. (TSX-V:DSV) ("Discovery Metals" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has been granted drill permits for five of its projects from Mexican regulator SEMARNAT (Mexico’s Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources).
The Company has option agreements on seven projects (including the five for which permits have just been granted), all located in northern Coahuila State within an historic high-grade and past producing silver-zinc-lead belt. All projects display alteration and mineralization styles suggestive of carbonate-replacement style mineralization, and include numerous historical artisanal workings. The projects have not been explored with modern methods and all are virtually undrilled. The newly granted permits cover the La Kika, Renata, Santa Rosa, La Minerva, and Jemi-Rare projects.
Discovery Metals President and CEO, Taj Singh commented: “This is a significant step for us. Our company came into existence in August, so we are very pleased to have received these permits in such a short time. Our newly-formed team has been working diligently to develop a detailed exploration plan and has prioritized a number of high-impact targets. We expect to be drilling on at least one project before the end of the year.”
The preparation of the application documents for submission to SEMARNAT for Discovery Metals’ other two projects, Puerto Rico and Monclova, is also underway.
