Golden Arrow Resources Corporation (TSXV: GRG) has commenced the first exploration programme at its new 100% held San Pietro Copper-Gold-Cobalt project in Chile.
The company has retained two Chilean project geologists with extensive experience in geologic systems like those in and around San Pietro.
The programme has commenced with detailed surface mapping and sampling and is expected to include trenching and an updated geophysical programme in the next six months.
At the same time, the crew is engaged in re-logging much of the 34,000 metres of historic drill core. This work will modernise and build the database for the main prospects to refine the targets for a subsequent resource delineation drill programme.
“We are pleased to have boots on the ground so quickly at this new and exciting project, particularly when they are occupied by such well-qualified individuals,” VP Exploration and Development, Brian McEwen, said.
“Our new geologists are supported by local field technicians and project management staff to ensure smooth operations as we ramp up our activities at San Pietro. We anticipate a busy and productive second half of the year as we refine targets for drilling and building resources.”
About the San Pietro Project
Golden Arrow acquired San Pietro in March 2022. It includes 18,448 hectares of exploration and exploitation concessions in the Atacama region of Chile, approximately 100 kilometres north of Copiapo in an active mining district that is home to all the major Iron-oxide copper-gold (IOCG) deposits in Chile.
There is excellent mining infrastructure in the area, and the property is situated between and adjacent to Capstone Copper’s Santo Domingo IOCG mine development project and Mantoverde IOCG mine property.
