Antilles (ASX:AAU) hit a stretch of high-grade copper at El Pilar

Antilles (ASX:AAU) hit a stretch of high-grade copper at El Pilar

November 16, 2023 Off By Rueben Hale

Antilles Gold have intercepted 4.7% Cu over 11 meters at its El Pilar copper-gold porphyry deposit in central Cuba.

The company says the outstanding copper intercepts come from pXRF readings in the latest diamond drill hole into the sulphide mineralisation of PDH 052A.

Antilles Gold’s Exploration Director, Dr Christian Grainger, says the reading displayed intense porphyry style veining.

“PDH-052A has shown highly encouraging porphyry style copper mineralisation. Now, we are seeing this associated with diatreme breccia-hosted mineralisation occurring together, increasing the quantity of mineralisation from multiple overprinting hydrothermal events.

“We are now confident that the system is growing to the SE, where no drilling has occurred and where we are seeing both high grades and widths of mineralisation expanding.

“The intersection of high-grade copper mineralisation in sulphides in the southern part of the El Pilar prospect confirmed by the pXRF readings gives us great encouragement for the potential of this prospect.

“Given the drill hole terminated in chalcopyrite in a fault zone, the porphyry remains open at depth, and future drilling will target the core of the porphyry body.”

Assays have also been received from seven additional holes in the overlying gold-copper oxide deposit.
