Comet Resources Ltd (ASX:CRL) has Interminco Services as project manager of the Santa Teresa Gold Project in Baja California, Mexico, providing the company with in-country technical and commercial expertise.
A fulltime team will be based in Ensenada, around 100 kilometres from the Santa Teresa site and Interminco staff are currently mobilising to site.
The initial priority will be to secure permits for Comet’s first drilling program at Santa Teresa.
Interminco's team will assist with planning for the upcoming drilling and associated permitting, managing the program itself as well as sampling, assaying and database management.
Experience "will be invaluable"
Managing director Matthew O’Kane said: “Interminco’s experienced team is now mobilising to Ensenada, which will be Comet’s in-country base of operations in Mexico.
“Ensenada is only 100 kilometres from the project site by mainly sealed national highways – their experience in Mexico will be invaluable in getting Santa Teresa exploration underway quickly and efficiently.”
