Tinka Secures Surface Agreement with Pillao Community for Colquipucro Project, Peru
Vancouver, Canada - Tinka Resources Limited (the “Company”), (TSXV:TK) (Frankfurt:TLD) (OTCPK:TKRFF), announces that the Company has signed an agreement with the Pillao community, providing surface access for the Colquipucro project, west-central Peru. The agreement grants the Company access for all exploration activities, including drilling, for the next thirty months.
Mr Carter said: “We are extremely pleased with this positive decision by the community and look forward to working with them, not only in the development of the Colquipucro project, but in the development of sustainable projects and social programs for the community as a whole. As a result of this major step, drilling is scheduled to recommence at Zone 1 in January.”
Drilling will consist of approximately 20 in-fill holes at Zone 1 with the objective of both increasing the silver resources and upgrading the resource classification from the inferred to indicated category. At the same time, with community support, an amendment to the existing drill permit will be lodged to include further drill platforms to test the north-west extension of Zone 1 (see press release dated September 17, 2012)
Surface work will also continue on the Chaucha zone, 1.5 km to the north, where strongly oxidized, gossanous limestone contains highly elevated levels of zinc, lead and silver.
