Golden Arrow Resources Corporation Vice President of Exploration and Development Brian McEwan joined Steve Darling from Proactive to provide an update on the company's exploration activities in Chile and Argentina. McEwan revealed that the company is currently drilling the second hole of a 10,000-meter diamond drilling campaign aimed at facilitating the first Mineral Resource estimate for the San Pietro project later in 2024. The drilling campaign follows a successful 4,000-meter program in 2023, which identified significant extensions to known mineralization at the advanced Rincones target. Notably, hole SP-DDH-12 returned promising results, with a 64.2-meter interval averaging 0.86% copper, 0.20 g/t gold, 196 g/t cobalt, and 26.9% iron, starting at 42.8 meters downhole.

The project comprises 9,800 hectares across four non-contiguous concessions.

In the current field season, historic targets are being re-evaluated to update the project database and assess potential for continued work or joint ventures in the evolving exploration climate.
