Santo Domingo.- Santo Mining Corp. has moved its field operations and modular field office to a yard that is closer to Maimón, the epicenter of the world class mining district in the Dominican Republic.
Exploration of the five initially acquired poly metallic claims will be orchestrated from this new facility and the company also plans to conduct due diligence on a pipeline of prime gold claims in the area.
This satellite office will improve the exploration team's efficiency and reduce daily travel times by 2-3 hours or more. The secure area has sufficient space for sample processing and storage, heavy equipment storage and even helicopter operations.
Santo Mining President Al French said, "Now that the Santo Mining field office is mobilized near Pueblo Viejo, our exploration team will move into the new facility today. Without missing a beat we will immediately start sampling soils on a 100 meter grid basis at the Walter claim, which is located less than a mile from Barrick Gold's 25 million ounce "Pueblo Viejo Mine" and Perilya's "Cerro de Maimón" gold mine".
