Cliffmont drills significant gold discovery at La Julia of 10.5 metres averaging 5.90 g/t gold and 3.33 g/t silver of shallow mineralization at San Lu
Friday, Jan 18, 2013VANCOUVER, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Cliffmont Resources Ltd. (TSX-V - CMO) ("Cliffmont" or the "Company") is pleased to announce drill results for holes SLD-17 and SLD-18 (373 metres) from the 2012 drill program on the San Luis Project in Huila Department, Colombia. The 2012 drill program was the first ever undertaken on the San Luis project.
"We are delighted with the new gold-silver discovery at La Julia. The
mineralization occurs at very shallow depths, possibly in the sub crop, and is open in all directions. This discovery at La Julia is a testament to the untested potential at the San Luis Project," said Jeff Tindale President and CEO.
Cliffmont is currently conducting a large soil sampling program over La Julia prospect to trace the new discovery and to identify new drill targets for the next phase of drilling. The mineralization is open along strike and to depth. The intersections in SLD-17 and SLD-18 indicate a previously unknown area of shallow gold-silver mineralization of significant grade.
The Company's strategy is to further define the La Julia target and to test for continuity of mineralization below past-producing mines. The Company's plan includes blocking out and evaluating mineralization to explore the possibilitiesof a near-term production decision while continuing to explore and evaluate numerous other larger areas of wider mineralization. The San Jorge prospect has two exploitation contract concessions and is the first area for advanced development work in the extensive San Luis project area.
