In a news release, Canadian natural resource company Emerita Resources Corp. (EMO:TSX.V; EMOTF:OTC;LLJA:F) announced that it submitted the initial drill program for its West Iberian Belt Project to the mining authorities in Andalusia, Spain, and the program has been accepted. The firm noted that the West Iberian Belt Project was formerly known as the Paymogo Project.
Emerita Resources advised that as the permitting process for the Department of Mines of Huelva Province requires, Emerita's approved exploration permit is officially published on the Andalusia Mining portal on the Junta de Andalusia website. The company noted that based upon its discussions with the Huelva Environmental Dept., the Infanta area does not have any environmental restrictions that would impact a mineral exploration program. Thus, the Department of Mines will directly issue the authorization to commence the exploration work.
Emerita stated that there are three mineralized areas on the West Iberian Belt Property: La Infanta, El Cura and Romanera, and that the initial drilling will focus on the Infanta deposit, which the firm noted is the zone with the highest grade mineralization on the project.
The company indicated that the first drill program entails around 5,000 meters of drilling in 22 planned drill holes ranging in length from 100-300 meters. The firm stated that the drill program is designed to include a combination of infill and stepout drill holes required to prepare a mineral resource estimate that is both NI 43-101 compliant and meets CIM standards.
The company added that it will proceed with exploration work in the El Cura and Romanera areas after the environmental impact studies submitted by the company have been fully reviewed and approved. The firm advised that "drilling will commence immediately following the required 30 day period during which the reclamation plan for the drill pads has been published for public review on the Government web site which is expected this week."
The West Iberian Belt Project is located approximately 70 km west of Seville, Spain and 50 km from the port city of Huelva. "The municipality of Puebla de Guzman, where La Infanta is located, is actively collaborating with the Company in facilitating the access agreements with the land owners," the company stated.
Emerita Resources' CEO David Gower, P.Geo., remarked, "the Infanta deposit is precious metals enriched. The mineralized intercepts at the Infanta deposit have historical assay values ranging between 100-290 g/t Ag that accompany high grade base metal values."
