San Marco Resources has initiated a drill program at its 100% optioned Buck gold-silver-zinc property in north-central British Columbia. Highlights of the Phase I program include up to 2,000 meters (m) of HQ diamond drilling; investigation of potential depth extensions of known mineralized zones; step-out drilling in areas of potential new discoveries; and confirmation of bulk-tonnage potential and zones of high-grade mineralization.

Since very little drill core from historical drilling is available for review, this initial drill program will provide fresh drill core for detailed logging and support of what appears to be a large, highly altered gold-silver-zinc breccia system.

San Marco Vice President of Technical Services Sharyn Alexander commented, “We are very excited to begin drilling at our Buck property. We have a strong technical team with years of combined experience, and we are eager to test some very interesting targets outlined during our data compilation and review.

“Data to date indicate the Buck property hosts large areas of surface and near-surface mineralization, and it is anticipated that the current drilling will confirm this and give indications of depth potential.”
