ALORO MINING CORP. - ("Aloro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that through its Mexican subsidiary, Exploraciones Aloro, S.A. de C.V., has been informed by its environmental consultant that the recently submitted permit application was accepted and a new permit was granted by SEMARNAT on June 27, 2018.
The old permit was for core drilling with a man portable rig, did not allow for the construction of an access road and was due to expire on July 30, 2018. The new permit will allow for the drilling of 12 drill holes, the building of 12 drill sites 14 x 7 meters suitable for using a reverse circulation drill, and the construction 3,693 meter access road 7 meters wide in order to reach the 12 new locations. This is within the parameters and do not exceed the Mexican rule NOM-120-SEMARNAT-2011. The new permit is valid for 1 year, expiring June 27, 2019.
The change from core to reverse circulation (RC) drilling is based on examples of drilled areas by other companies in the immediate area where they obtained consistently better sample recoveries with reverse circulation drills than they did from comparable areas with core drilling. Further benefits to RC drilling are that it is cheaper, quicker and is more environmentally sensitive.
Thomas A. Doyle, President, CEO, stated "We are very pleased that SEMARNAT reviewed our application and has turned it around quickly. The road construction to the drill sites will open up new exposures for sampling in the mineralized area that were previously undercover."
