Hochschild Mining PLC started Phase 1 work on Las Dos Marias project on September 23, 2018. This phase includes re-logging and assaying existing drill cores and systematic sampling at surface and inside both tunnels. Phase 1 concludes on Friday, October 12, 2018. Phase 2 will begin on Monday, October 22, 2018, and we expect a Phase 3 to be completed prior to the end of 2018.

The aim of these first phases is to establish the targets for drilling in early 2019. AURYN management is very pleased with the progress to date and will keep our shareholders posted as things progress.
