Orla Mining Ltd. (TSX: OLA) has drilled wide zones at its South Railroad Project in Nevada.
2022 Exploration Highlights: South Railroad (Nevada)
- The resumption of exploration activities in mid-2022 resulted in promising drill results from multiple satellite oxide mineralized zones and targets across the 21,000-hectare South Railroad land package.
- Infill and selected step-out drilling was performed with the objective to upgrade inferred resources at the Pinion SB, POD, Sweet Hollow and Jasperoid Wash oxide deposits, define potential new resources at the Dixie mineralized zone, and advance the early-stage LT target.
- Inferred mineral resource estimates for Pinion SB, POD, Sweet Hollow, and Jasperoid Wash are expected to be updated in the second half of 2023, incorporating assay and metallurgical test study results from the 2022 core and reverse circulation (RC) drill program, as well as from historical drill holes.
- Notable 2022 RC drill results (core hole results pending).
“Our short but effective drill programme in 2022 successfully confirmed significant mineralization at multiple satellite zones and targets on the South Railroad Project. We believe there are immediate opportunities to upgrade and potentially increase oxide resources on our land package, which could ultimately strengthen project economics,” said Sylvain Guerard, Senior Vice President, Exploration, of Orla.
“New, highly prospective oxide and sulphide targets have also been outlined for drilling in 2023. The team is excited to be ramping up exploration activities directed toward making new discoveries on the Carlin Trend.”
