March 1, 2022 – TheNewswire – VANCOUVER, B.C., Secova Metals Corp. (The “Company”) (CSE:SEK) (FSE:N4UN) (OTC:SEKZF) is pleased to announce the mobilization of a sonic drill rig to the Montauban Gold Project in order to complete a resource definition drilling program.
The drilling program will be comprised of roughly 275 holes at 25m spacings and at depths of up to 15m. The focus of the exploration will be on all five tailings sites on the property, including the Montauban United site, which has not been previously evaluated. The upcoming program will build upon previous campaigns with a higher density of holes and a full analytical suite leading to an even higher degree of confidence in the amount of metals contained.
Concurrent to the sonic drilling, a geophysical crew will conduct a combination of seismic refraction and Ground-Penetrating Radar (“GPR”) surveys to accurately delineate the depth of the tailings for a more precise volumetric measurement.
This campaign results will be submitted to BBA Engineering Ltd., who will conduct a resource estimation and subsequent Preliminary Economic Assessment (see December 29 news release).

“As you can see from the targets on the attached map, the drilling at Montauban is a systematic and methodical exploration program designed to expand the resource, fill in and complete the areas missed in historical drilling, and aid in the logistics of actually processing the tailings,” stated Brad Kitchen, CEO. of Secova Metals. “This will not be the only exploration program at Montauban this year. Immediately upon completion of this program, Secova will be working with Longford Exploration to develop and implement a hard rock drilling program below the tailings resource at Montauban.”
