Fenix Oro has started drilling at its Abriaqui gold project in Antioquia, Colombia, which is about 15km west of Zijin Mining’s high-grade Buritica mine development. The first hole of a US$2.9 million, 6,000m drilling programme is underway. It will feature angled holes across interpreted families of veins. The first phase will see 4,500m drilled in 10 holes with the remainder to be programmed depending upon results. Fenix also aims to drill one hole into a magnetic anomaly to test for porphyry-style mineraliation.
