VANCOUVER, May 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Victory Resources Corp. (Symbol VR-TSXV, OTCQX: VRCFF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has completed the 1st stage drill program on the Matanza tailings pond located at the Reforma mine.
The drill program is being conducted on two tailings ponds known as the Matanza and the Altamira. The drill program completed on the Matanza tailings pond consisted of 46 drill holes with depths ranging from 2 meters to 10.9 meters for a total of 291 meters. Drilling continues on the Altamira tailings pond. Upon completion of the drill program on both tailings ponds, a representation bulk sample from each tailings pond will be submitted for mineralogical studies and metallurgical tests to determine the viability of re-processing the material.
Previous production at the Reforma mine involved the recovery mainly by flotation of chalcopyrite, galena and sphalerite. Significant values of Silver (AG) ranging from 10 grams to greater than 250 grams were recovered with the sulphides. Gold was a minor component. Magnetite which comprised a significant portion of the complex ore was not recovered.
"We are pleased with the rapid pace of the drill program and we look forward to its completion as we prepare for the next stage of work to determine the economic viability of the two tailings deposits," stated Wally Boguski, President and CEO. "The scenario of an immediately viable resource in the tailings pond presents an important milestone in our current development of the Reforma mine."
