Gemini Explorations, Inc. Reports Sampling Results From New Ore Zone at the La Tapata Gold Mineadmin
Wednesday, August 20th 2008
Gemini Explorations, Inc. announce summary sample results from a new mineralization zone located at its La Tapata Gold Mine project. Previous sampling results (announced 10/25/07), taken from the principal vein at La Tapata, showed vein rock gold concentrations as high as 243 g/tonne with an average from two separate sampling efforts of an exceptional 41.94 g/tonne Au.
In order to more thoroughly determine the full potential value of this mine, Gemini has gone forward with the testing of a large, less concentrated zone of mineralization utilizing the proprietary Diazem separation and capture process, which was detailed in a prior news release dated 8/18/08. This process allows for the capture of a uniquely high percentage of precious and other economically viable minerals, providing for a dramatic increase in profitability over other methods, from ores with varying degrees of mineral concentrations. In the case of these samples, the Diazem process enabled the recovery of a very economically viable 9.38 g/tonne Au and an extremely impressive 958.8 g/tonne Ag (silver).
Michael Hill, CEO of Gemini, expressed his enthusiasm with regard to these results as follows, “The high level of gold and silver recovery we have achieved in these test samples combined with the proprietary Diazem process, indicates that the profit potential of La Tapata should be even higher than that which we estimated in our original calculations performed in 2007. We look forward to working with Diazem to elevate the business of mining for gold and silver in Colombia to a new level of efficiency and profitability.”
