(Kitco News) - Orosur Mining (TSX:OMI)(AIM:OMI) announced Tuesday an update on the progress of Minera Anzá's drilling campaign currently underway at the company's Anzá project in Colombia.

The company said that assay results for four additional diamond drillholes have been received from the ALS laboratory in Lima, Peru: MAP-079, 080, 081 and 082.

High grade gold intersections include 23.75m @ 17.40g/t Au (including 0.4m @ 948g/t Au), 29.45m @ 2.50 g/t Au.

The company currently has five diamond drill rigs operating at the APTA prospect, with close to 6,000m having been completed since November 2020 across 18 holes, both completed and underway.

Drilling is now focussed on a combination of understanding the geological controls upon mineralisation, expansion of the mineralised zones, and infill drilling to demonstrate continuity.

The company added that visually, results continue to appear positive, but drilling company remains subject to delayed assay results, with over 2000 samples currently in the laboratory awaiting assay.

Anzá is a gold exploration project, comprising three exploration licences, four exploration licence applications, and several small exploitation permits, totalling 207.5km2 in the prolific Mid-Cauca belt of Colombia. The Anzá project is currently wholly owned by Orosur.

Orosur Mining is a precious metals developer and explorer focused on identifying and advancing gold projects in South America. The company operates in Colombia and Uruguay.
