The company’s shares are recovering from yesterday’s selloff.
The post Los Cerros (ASX:LCL) share price soars 14% after poor start to the week appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
The Los Cerros Ltd (ASX: LCL) share price is on the rebound today following a 6% drop yesterday.
At the time of writing, the Australian gold miner’s shares are making amends today, up 14.29% to 16 cents.
On Monday, Los Cerros released its latest drill hole assay results from Tesorito South, a near-surface gold porphyry discovery in Colombia. The area forms part of the company’s wholly-owned Quinchia Gold Project in Risaralda.
Los Cerros revealed that drill hole (TS-DH27) delivered broad zones of gold porphyry mineralisation. The highlighted results included:
36 meters at 1.01 g/t gold from 116 meters; and
72 meters at 1.00 g/t gold from 188 meters; including 6 meters at 2.05g/t gold from 254 meters.
The company expects to complete a drone-based regional magnetic survey and deep IP geophysics programs in the near term. This will provide it with directions on where next to drill possible extensions for mineralisation.
As well, a fourth diamond drill rig will be added to the company’s fleet to continue testing on multiple targets. It is expected the rig will arrive within the next 4 weeks.
Los Cerros managing director Jason Stirbinskis commented:
Drillhole TS-DH27, at some 120m to the E of the drillpad for TS-DH24, ’25 and ‘26, was a significant step out that still intercepted gold porphyry mineralisation. It has given us further directions where we might expect to see additional extensions to mineralisation.
