Luminex Resources Corp (CVE:LR) (OTCMKTS:LUMIF) continues to extend the Camp zone at its Condor project in southeast Ecuador via drilling.
In a statement on Thursday, the company said current drilling had delineated a mineralized zone of variable width over a strike length of 300 metres and vertical depth of 400 metres.
Extends mineralization to the southeast
Luminex has sunk around 7,600 metres so far in 18 holes and is continuing step-out drilling on mineralized intercepts, while a third rig has begun at the property.
One hole hit a second high-grade zone of mineralization below 600 metres (m). Highlight intercepts were 19.3 m of 6.1 grams per ton (g/t) gold and 36.3 g/t silver, including 0.9 m at 60.50 g/t gold and 299.0 g/t silver.
Luminex also said it had extended mineralization to the southeast and infilled the known zone above 400 metres.
Highlight assays here included 24.5m of 4 g/t gold and 10.2 g/t silver. Another hole showed 6 m at 4.2 g/t gold and 4.9 g/t silver and 9 m of 3.1 g/t gold and 12.3 g/t silver.
Condor lies 31 km south of the 9.5 million ounce gold Fruta del Norte project and 55 km south of Ecuacorriente's 4 million ounce gold Mirador project.
It has a 43-101 indicated gold resource of 1.4 million ounces, indicated silver of 9.2 million ounces and 43 million pounds of indicated copper.
