Revolution Resources (OTCQX: RVRCF; TSX: RV) has initiated diamond drilling at the Universo Project, located in San Luis Potosi State, Mexico . There are three drill rigs currently on site, with 7,000 meters of core drilling planned. Revolution expects to report results in the first quarter of 2012.
Universo is a 350,000 hectare property centered at the heart of a 300 kilometer long trend of significant precious and base metal mines and deposits. Initial drilling will test multiple targets on the property; including step-out drilling from historic producers. One drill will initially test the Navarro area; centered on the Cinco Estrellas mine that hosts a historical, non NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate of 47,000 tons averaging 16.0 g/t Au and 900 g/t Ag. Amongst other targets, drilling will pursue a historic drill hole completed by Minera Kennecott that reported 1.5 meters averaging 121.0 g/t Au within 21.3 meters averaging 11.7 g/t Au and 37 g/t Ag, southeast along trend of the Cinco Estrellas mine.
