EL TABACO, CHILE:MORE PRIMARY SULPHIDES
The company is pleased to report that the
mineralization reported in hole 1 has been extended to the
west in vertical hole 1A wherein a 68 metre section reported
0.83 percent copper (136-204m) as follows:
18 - 36 m chalcopyrite 18m 0.25% copper
96 - 102m " 6m 0.36% "
136- 174m " 38m 1.15% "
188- 204m " 16m 0.81% "
Holes 9-13 reported low levels of copper
in all cases and were located to test for copper oxide mineralization.
Hole 9 was drilled in an area expected to have over one percent
copper but was later determined to have been drilled down
a shear which had been heavily leached. The large drill rig
being used precluded more drilling in the area previously
reporting good oxide on a hole by hole basis and further testing
of the oxide will require a smaller unit. Holes 10-13 encountered
silicified rock which is not a good host for the oxide.
Hole 14 was used to evaluate a geophysical
anomaly and returned a section of pyrite with minor scattered
chalcopyrite between 10 and 54 metres and a section of 0.1
percent copper over 16 metres between 110 and 126 metres.
This anomaly strengthens to the north and will be re-drilled.
