Colibri Resource Corporation Announces Initiation of Phase 1 Drilling at Pilar
March 20, 2018
DIEPPE, N.B., March 20th, 2018 (CBI: TSX-V) – Colibri Resource Corporation (“Colibri” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that that Phase 1 drilling of its 2018 drilling program has begun on its 100% owned Pilar Project in Sonora State Mexico.
The Phase 1 drilling program, which calls for up to 30 holes to be drilled, is designed to confirm modelling and extend the known mineralization of the Main Zone to the north-west and south-east along trend.
Drilling targets for this program have chosen by utilizing 3D modelling techniques introduced in a model prepared by geologist Jamie Lavigne, Hector Mendivil, a Geosoft TARGET for ArcGIS specialist, and Colibri’s Country Manager & geologist Jackie E. Stephens.
In the past it had been assumed that the main NW/SE Fault structure at the center of the gold mineralization on the Pilar Project of interest was a “strike-slip” fault, and the North Hill Mineralization is a right-lateral extension of the South Hill Mineral. However, when a prior operator drilled the JESP-15 hole, results indicated that mineralization actually extended into North Hill crossing the strike-slip fault to the NW. This could indicate that there is in fact be no strike-slip movement, but rather there are two separate parallel fault-zones containing gold mineralization. If further proven, this will allow for much greater potential for additional ounces of gold at the Pilar Project.
To date, Colibri has defined an in-house resource calculation on Main Zone deposit of 700,000 tonnes grading 1.9 g/t Au.
