Dorato Resources (DRI.TSXV) announced the receipt of additional Cobrecon rock sampling results from Minera Afrodita. Cobrecon is one of two separate copper-gold porphyry targets located in the Cordillera del Condor Project in northern Peru. Dorato has the right to acquire 100% of Minera Afrodita. The company reported that reconnaissance chip sampling of mineralized rocks at Cobrecon confirmed the presence of porphyry mineralization of significant grade, with rock samples grading up to 0.63% copper and 0.48 grams per tonne gold.
*Three wide-spaced samples located over 60-metres laterally assayed between 0.11% and 0.23% copper over 2 to 3 meter-long representative chip samples.
*Another sample 300 metres farther north, on the ridge, returned 0.63% copper and 0.48 g/t gold.
*One drill rig is being mobilized for the initial phase of drilling and four initial holes in total will be drilled to evaluate potential mineralization at depth.
