Inca Minerals has received assays and drill core data for three more holes drilled within the company’s Greater Riqueza lead-zinc-silver project in Peru, intersecting significant manto mineralisation of 7.40% zinc, 99.1 grams per tonne silver and 1.44% lead over 1.5m from 3m within wider 3m interval grading 4.31% zinc, 81.2gpt Ag and 1.21% lead between 3-6m.

The full manto horizon has a grade of 2.75% zinc, 32.5gpt silver and 0.74% lead over 6.5m from surface.

Mineralisation has now been proven at both Humaspunco West and East, and the latest drilling proves it in the Callancocha structure. 

A detailed mapping and channel sampling program, has now commence to examine the open-ended nature of mineralisation exposed in the first two trenches.
