Adamera and Hochschild Provide Update on the Cooke Mountain Project
Vancouver, B.C., March 31, 2020 - Adamera Minerals Corp. (TSX V: ADZ; OTC: DDNFF) provides an update on its upcoming exploration program. Plans to start deeper penetrating induced polarization (IP) surveying at the beginning of April will be pushed back temporarily due to concerns related to the Covid-19 pandemic. Hochschild Mining PLC (LON: HOC) and Adamera will use this time to refine existing drill targets and to review bids from drilling contractors.
Our primary concern is the health and safety of our employees, contractors and the surrounding communities such as Republic. The Company is looking at various options on how we will best operate in northeast Washington State and will not initiate field activities without prior consultation with state authorities.
“In Washington, our strategy has always been to hire and train local personnel within the community whenever possible. Our employees carry out surveys using Adamera owned equipment as opposed to importing contractors. This commitment to hiring locally will continue and in doing so will eliminate the need for extended periods of isolation and or quarantine. Also, the majority of work we do on our properties naturally promotes physical distancing of employees and therefore, I am confident we will be able conduct our work safely soon after COVID-19 related restrictions subside,” says Mark Kolebaba, President and CEO of Adamera Minerals Corp.

- Adamera’s systematic approach to developing targets
