Atacama Pacific Gold Corporation TSXV:ATM announced drill results from its Cerro Maricunga Gold Project in Chile. Highlights include 0.79 g/t gold over 40 metres, 0.52 g/t over 18 metres, 0.53 g/t over 94 metres, 0.85 g/t over 36 metres, 0.77 g/t over 76 metres (including 1.13 g/t over 30 metres), 0.57 g/t over 254 metres, 0.55 g/t over 146 metres and 0.6 g/t over 208 metres (including 1 g/t over 44 metres).
President/CEO Carl Hansen commented, “We continue to be very pleased with the drill results from Cerro Maricunga, as they further establish the continuity of the large oxidized, breccia-hosted gold system extending over a strike of 2.5 kilometres and to depths in excess of 450 metres. Four drill rigs are presently operating on the property with two rigs targeting the 400 metre wide Phoenix Zone and the other two drills tracing the gold mineralization from the Lynx and Crux Zones towards the Phoenix Zone. We look forward to our initial resource estimation on Cerro Maricunga, planned for the third quarter of 2011.”
