Latest Hycroft News (HYMC Stock)
HYMC stock surged more than 25% on the successful drilling news.
Alex Davidson, Vice President, Exploration commented the following:
“The initial drilling campaign has focused on higher-grade opportunities primarily in the Brimstone, Vortex, and Central zones.
All 20 RC drill holes reported to date have returned ore grade mineralization, of which 14 holes have outperformed the model resulting in higher grades than previously estimated or known.
The results to date are very exciting as we established continuity between the higher-grade zones along structures.
In addition, we continue to enhance the project economics through in-fill drilling that have demonstrated mineralization in areas previously considered to be waste.”
Alex Davidson further stated, “Drilling in the Central zone is delivering ore grade mineralization where none was previously modeled.
The grades we are seeing in the Central zone are more than double the average resource grade and extends mineralization farther south than previously understood.”
Diane R. Garrett, President & CEO commented, “We continue to be extremely pleased with the positive results from our exploration program.
The second phase of the drill program will continue through the first half of 2023.
Once permits are received, we will be stepping out beyond the known resource area and drilling prospective high-grade targets identified within our vast land position.”
