Caballo Blanco gets blasting

6 October 2011

Blasting and tunnel works last month commenced at Caballo Blanco gold project in Veracruz State, Mexico. Canadian contractor Goldgroup Mining said that the tunnel would be driven into the La Paila zone for better interpretation of the high-grade structures within the mineralised zone and also to extract large samples for testing.

Keith Piggott, Goldgroup president and CEO said, “This is another important milestone. Together with our diamond drilling program and advanced on-site column leach testing, this tunnel development is consistent with our schedule to commence production at Caballo Blanco in 2012.”
