What does this mean for Jaguar Mining Inc?

Jaguar’s most recent survey was conducted through a 150 square km UAV (Drone) high resolution magnetics survey, which is believed to be the largest survey ever attempted in South America with the technology. The magnetics assessment was also coupled with a thorough review of historical data, and focused on the ground geological mapping and geochemical soil programs.

As a result, a significant, >30 square km (3,000 Ha) previously unrecognized extension of the highly prospective Ouro Fino Formation of the Rio das Velhas Greenstone Belt has been defined.

Vern Baker, CEO, Jaguar Mining commented, ” Our exploration program is positioned perfectly to mesh with our program of organic growth. The IAMGOLD JV is bringing in six exciting drill targets within short haulage distances of our CPA plant. We have a high level of confidence that our exploration effort can be successful and provide Jaguar with economic growth opportunity at any scale of resource identification.”

Jaguar’s exploration team also defined a series of five stratigraphic and structural trends within the JV Area which, collectively represent a prospective, previously under-explored strike length or more than 50km.
