Preliminary results from the four drilled holes indicate a large hydrothermal system, potentially carrying gold and copper, as typical IOCG (iron-oxide-copper-gold) pipes would. Laboratory assays are still pending, and the company do not know yet if there are any anomalous gold and copper values. The early indications, however, suggest the rocks can be a host for mineralization.
