Sonoro Gold Corp has reported very favourable results from its current step-out and infill drilling programs. The current programs have demonstrated a material expansion of several mineralized zones, most notably at Japoneses, Buena Suerte, Veta de Oro, El Rincon and El Colorado. Based on these results, the Company is revising the parameters for a planned Preliminary Economic Assessment to assess the viability of Heap Leach Mining Operation by increasing the target conceptual capacity from 8,000 tonnes per day to 20,000 tpd.
On November 18, 2020, Sonoro reported engaging McClelland Laboratories of Sparks, Nevada to conduct independent metallurgical testing of the mineralization at Cerro Caliche for its upcoming NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource update and PEA based on all drilling results to December 15, 2020. Sonoro expects that this independent metallurgical testing will confirm and expand on the results of its preliminary in-house column leach tests.
