Progress on project Baroyeca Gold & Silver has announced the first assay results from the company’s phase 2 drilling programme at the Atocha silver project in Tolima, Colombia.


The company said in a statement it has completed the 1,500-metre phase 1 drilling programme at La Ye and is currently moving to a new target where chip samples collected in 2021 on outcropping veins returned values of 1,587, 1,426, 1,345 and 1,265 g/t AgEq, respectively.


Raul Sanabria the president of Baroyeca, said his business was "pleased to see more parallel structures following wide vein corridors in our first two holes drilled in this new area, another discovery on the Atocha property. Assay results of up to almost three quarters of a kilo per tonne silver equivalent makes a good start to the phase 2 program. The next drill holes will test the continuity of the structure along strike while we develop more drill targets to the south, where we found at least three more parallel vein zones within short distance."
