American CuMo Mining Corporation (“CuMoCo” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MLY; OTC-Pink: MLYCF) announces that drilling at its Calida Gold project continues with five holes completed and a sixth hole currently being drilled. The five completed holes have intersected altered and mineralized zones over significant widths. Holes one and two were reported previously in the Company’s news release dated July 17, 2017.
The third hole (C17-03) was drilled to intersect the main vein approximately 100 feet west of intersections in holes C17-01 and C17-02 from the same pad. C17-03 intersected two mineralized zones: 3-meters (10 feet) width between 15.2 meters (50 feet) and 18.2 (60 feet) and 25 meters (82 feet) between 26.8 meters (88 Feet) and 51.8 meters (170 feet). The fourth hole (C17-04), drilled from the same pad at a steeper angle, also intersected two zones: 7 meters (23 feet) between 18 meters (59 feet) and 25 meters (82 feet) and 12.1 meters (40 feet) between 28.7 meters (94 feet) to 40.8 meters (134 feet).
The fifth hole (C17-05) was collared approximately 300 meters (1000 feet) west of the initial holes and drilled into a fault zone with only a single 5.2-meter intersection (17 feet) intersection between 32.3 meter (106 feet) and 37.5 meters (123 feet). The sixth hole (C17-06) is currently being drilled at an angle to avoid the fault intersected in C17-05. It has intersected an upper mineralized zone between 4.9 meters (16 feet) and 15.2 meters (50 feet) and is currently drilling within a second intersection at 78.3 meters (257 feet).
Overall, the intersections are visually similar to those reported by the previous drilling in 1983. The core is being processed and sent for assaying and results will be published as soon as they are received.
