Outcrop Gold expects the 120-hole, 13,000 meter program to extend into Q1/21.

Outcrop Gold Corp. (OCG:TSX.V; MRDDF:OTCMKTS; MRG1:FSE) announced in a news release it began its Phase 2 drill program at its Santa Ana high-grade silver-gold project in Colombia.

The White Rock, Canada-headquartered explorer plans about 120 core holes over 13,000 meters (13,000m) of the La Ivana target, one of nine at the project, all with a potential total strike length of 10 kilometers.

The company states the aim of this followup drilling at La Ivana is to define the mineralized zone down to 300 meters to develop an ore shoot and vein model. The zones of this and the other core targets contain multiple parallel veins showing gold and silver mineralization, both high grade.

Phase 1 drilling, consisting of nine holes, at La Ivana revealed an average downhole intercept length of 0.52m with a weighted average grade of 21.7 grams per ton gold and 1,329 grams per ton silver.

Drilling at La Ivana will span the rest of 2020 and extend into Q1/21. Once it is completed, Santa Ana can advance to a delineation stage, with widespread drilling of all nine targets to follow.

Outcrop Gold noted that it is able to drill during the COVID-19 crisis because the Colombia government deemed mineral explorers essential companies. The company, however, is strictly following the required guidelines to reduce the risk of coronavirus exposure and contraction at the project site. To date, there are no known cases of COVID-19 among its team at Santa Ana, the firm stated.

Also, Outcrop reported it is continuing to provide basic food items to local communities and donate to a local COVID-19 general response fund managed by Falan, the nearest municipality.
