VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Norsemont Mining Inc. (CSE: NOM, OTCQB: NRRSF, FWB: LXZ1) ("Norsemont" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its maiden diamond drilling program at its Choquelimpie high sulphidation epithermal gold-silver project in northern Chile is progressing better than anticipated and has surpassed the mid-way mark. Two (2) drill rigs are turning and have completed eight (8) holes to-date. This initial 4,000 metre drill campaign is anticipated to be completed before the end of December with the first set of analytical results expected within two weeks.

温哥华,不列颠哥伦比亚省,2021年12月6日(环球社)-Norsemont Mining Inc.(CSE:NOM,OTCQB:NRRSF,FWB:LXZ1)(“诺斯蒙特“或”公司“)很高兴地宣布,其在智利北部Choquelimpie高硫化浅成热液金银项目的首个钻石钻探项目进展情况好于预期,并已超过中途关口。两(2)个钻机正在转弯,迄今已完成8(8)个孔。最初的4000米钻探活动预计将在12月底前完成,第一组分析结果预计在两周内完成。

The 2021 drill program is targeting three areas - the Vizcacha Pit area, the Intermedio Pit area and the Choque Pit area (Figure 1), which returned high grade gold-silver intercepts in historic drilling, (news release 15th November 2021). In addition, ongoing field mapping and 3D modelling suggests that mineralization may also be present between the historically mined pits. This program is designed to confirm historic drill results, and to test some of the areas with little or no drilling in search of additional mineralisation.

Norsemont's VP Exploration John Currie states: "We are extremely encouraged by what we are seeing in both field mapping and in the drill core at Choquelimpie to date. All drill holes completed have intersected mineralised zones similar to those found in historic drilling and have confirmed our field mapping and project-scale model.

Norsemont勘探副总裁John Currie表示:“我们对迄今为止在Choquelimpie的野外测绘和钻芯中看到的情况感到非常鼓舞。所有完成的钻孔都与历史钻探中发现的矿化带相交,并证实了我们的野外测绘和项目规模模型。

Marc Levy, CEO of Norsemont, said, "We're excited to be advancing on our initial diamond drill program at Choquelimpie in order to test our thesis of significantly increasing the mineralisation at depth and along strike. We have also identified several new zones, which will be further explored in our phase two drilling program in 2022. The geophysical surveying has identified a 2.2kilometre-long anomalous zone connecting each of our existing pits. These are exciting times for all of our stakeholders and we hope to announce initial drill results this month."

Norsemont首席执行官马克·利维(Marc Levy)表示:“我们很高兴能在Choquelimpie推进我们最初的钻石钻探计划,以测试我们大幅增加深度和走向矿化度的论点。我们还确定了几个新的区域,这些区域将在2022年的第二阶段钻探计划中进一步探索。地球物理测量发现了一个2.2公里长的异常带,连接了我们现有的每个矿坑。这对我们所有的利益相关者来说都是令人兴奋的时刻,我们希望本月公布初步钻探结果。”
