The programme is targeting an extension of the high-grade volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralisation, previously identified at Schwabe in June last year.
Work starts at Zinco Lago, followed by Schwabe and then Monti.

“We look forward to further updates from Cobre as the work proceeds and when assay results become available.”
Last month, Cobre raised A$10mln in an IPO and Metal Tiger subscribed for A$2.4mln of shares.
Metal Tiger holds a 19.99% interest in the company.
