Bocana Resources Corp. Provides an Update on Assay Analysis from the Escala Project in Bolivia and a New Venture
CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bocana Resources Corp. (TSXV: BOCA) (Frankfurt: VC1) (“Bocana” or the “Company“) is a company focused on the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in South America. The Company would like to provide the following operational updates.
The Assay results from holes HRC23-01 and HRC23-02 of the diamond drilling campaign at the Company’s Escala Project in Southwest Bolivia have been received, compiled, and reviewed by Bocana personnel. Both holes tested the southern flank of the Cerro Galapagos, induced polarization-chargeability anomaly.
The purpose of these holes was to test the porphyry potential of a large dacitic intrusive. Extensive hydrothermal alteration and mineralization in the form of pyrite with trace amounts of arsenopyrite and chalcopyrite were encountered, however no potentially economic base-precious metal concentrations were encountered over significant core lengths. The remaining holes that were drilled will also be analyzed by Bocana personnel and reported accordingly.
In conjunction with the work being done at Escala, Bocana is currently awaiting a commissioned NI 43-101 report through its 100% owned subsidiary Huiracocha Development Services SRL. The report is part of an in-depth study of a previous mining operation in Bolivia that still contains extensive historical insitu, tailings and stockpile resources. Upon successful completion of the studies and acquisition of the property the Company plans to immediately commence additional metallurgical studies in order to begin production operations and increase gold and silver recoveries and lower production costs through leaching.
Mr. Lorne Warner, P.Geo., is a “Qualified Person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Warner has approved the scientific and technical information included in this news release for dissemination.
