Morocco awards Canada’s Aya Gold & Silver Inc. seven new exploration permits
Canadian mining company Aya Gold & Silver is expanding the scope of its operations in Morocco where it has been granted seven new exploration permits located in a known copper-gold-silver-bearing area.
Five permits located within the prolific Zgounder Regional area, increase Aya’s exploration land holdings from 112 km2 to 168 km2, while the two other permits are in the Azegour area covering a total of 29 km2
The new permits are located adjacent to the Azegour granite intrusion, and host historical copper, lead and zinc occurrences
“We are excited to be adding these seven new permits, which materially increase our land holdings adjacent to existing mapped development projects and strengthen our mining commitment in Morocco,” said Benoit La Salle, Chairman & CEO.
Aya Gold & Silver Inc. is a Canada-based silver producer. It operates the high-grade Zgounder Silver Mine and is exploring its properties along the prospective South-Atlas Fault, several of which have hosted past-producing mines and historical resources.
Aya’s Moroccan mining assets are complemented by its Tijirit Gold Project in Mauritania, which is being advanced to feasibility.
