Drilling Permits Received at La Segoviana
VANCOUVER, BC, Dec. 30, 2021 /CNW/ - The Company is pleased to report that the Ministry of Environmental and Natural Resources ("MARENA") has granted an exploration permit to the Company for the La Segoviana concession, which was granted to Mako in 2020. The permit is valid for 10 years and is renewable for up to an additional 20 years. The Company is now permitted to drill up to 1,100,000 meters ("m") as follows: 500,000 m of diamond drilling; 300,000 m of reverse circulation drilling; and 300,000 m of blast hole drilling. The Company is also permitted to carry out up to 32,500 m of trenching.
Key surface rights acquisitions at La Segoviana have already been made and the Company will be preparing a budget for the first exploration program at this concession early in the beginning of 2022.
The Company also announces that Cesar Gonzalez, Vice President of Corporate Development, has left the Company to focus on his other endeavors.
Akiba Leisman, Chief Executive Officer of Mako states that, "we are extremely happy that MARENA has granted us an exploration permit at La Segoviana, which in addition to the recently granted permit at Potrerillos, contains some of our most prospective areas for exploration. Regarding the Corporate Update, we are sad to see Cesar go from Mako and we wish him well on his other activities."
On behalf of the Board,
Chief Executive Officer
