Discovery Metals has announced results from recent drilling at its flagship Cordero project in Chihuahua state, Mexico, where a Phase 1 diamond core drilling program was initiated in September 2019. The program was recently expanded from 35,000 m to 55,000 m and has a goal of defining a large-scale, high-margin project with excellent leverage to rising silver prices.

Discovery added a second drill rig to the project during the first week of July and plans to add additional rigs when it is confident health and safety risks related to COVID-19 can be managed effectively.

Drilling will be focused on two key areas: 1) targeting of broad zones of breccia-hosted mineralization in the east and northeast of both of the project’s mineralized corridors and 2) testing of the width, grade, and continuity of extensive high-grade vein systems identified in and adjacent to historical artisanal underground workings during the early history of the project.
