Glen Parsons, chief executive officer of Mariana Resources Ltd (LON:MARL, CVE:MARL, CVE:MRA), was understandably in ebullient mood after the gold explorer unveiled “exceptional” gold and copper intercepts at its Hot Maden project in Turkey.
Parson said the latest round of infill drilling had produced “spectacular results”, but he did not seem overly surprised, as “we’ve had them from the start”.
“What we are seeing now is the continuity of the zone,” he told Proactive Investors.
The latest drilling included the best drill hole to date, hole 72, and Parsons said “every time we put out a few holes, we have another best hole to date”.
The hole contained a seven-metre section starting at 210 metres grading a bonanza 526 grams per tonne of gold and 3.28% of copper.
Mariana owns 30% of Hot Maden, with local partner Lidya holding the remainder.
