Coricancha results augur well..

Yesterday, Great Panther unveiled results from its Coricancha gold-silver-lead-zinc-copper project in the central Andes of Peru, which underscored the site's potential to be a mine.

The exploration consisted of 33 diamond drill holes in 2015 and 2016 and was conducted before the option was originally terminated before being renegotiated and finally closed this year.

The Coricancha mine complex (CMC), on care and maintenance since 2013, is a fully permitted polymetallic mine that includes an operational 600-tonne-per-day flotation and gold bio-leach plant along with supporting infrastructure.

An updated resource estimate is under way, incorporating all previous drilling and results from all underground sampling by previous owners.
