Ormonde Mining’s subsidiary Ormonde Espana has received four investigation permits in the Huelva Province of southern Spain, from the provincial mining authority.

The permits cover a total area of 95km², and will be explored with joint venture company Antofagasta Minerals.

Detailed work programmes will be carried out in these new areas, which will include a close line spaced airborne electromagnetic survey, gravity survey and diamond drilling on any targets identified.

Ormonde Mining’s managing director Kerr Anderson said that the firm will conduct an aggressive exploration programme, which will be funded by Antofagasta, to identify massive sulphides at reasonable depths in the new areas.
