Hunt Mining Corp. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:HMX) is pleased to announce the latest drill results from the La Josefina Project in Santa Cruz province, Argentina. A total of 57 assays have been received to date that were completed from September 2011 to December 2011. All results from these holes are from surface to a maximum depth of 227 meters.
The Corporation continues ongoing reconnaissance exploration, currently focused on trench and surface channel sampling, to define new and expansion drill targets within La Josefina and other key areas. In addition to this exploration, the main camp is undergoing a significant expansion to accommodate more personnel for upcoming drill programs. Construction of one or more satellite camps is also being initiated to service crews soon to be working on portions of the Corporation's 30 outlying projects.
The focus of this drilling and trenching was mainly reconnaissance in nature, testing outlying areas where little or no drill testing had previously taken place.
From the 57 holes reported, approximately 30% intercepted one or more assay intervals with gold greater than 0.5 grams per tonne (g/t), silver greater than 30 g/t and/or base metals (lead or zinc) greater than 5000 g/t.
Highlights from these remaining drill holes include:
