Salazar Expands El Domo Resources With 16.08 m of 3.27 g/t Gold, 74.88 g/t Silver and 3.60% Zincadmin
Salazar Resources Ltd. Mr. Fredy Salazar, President and CEO, is pleased to announce the latest assay results from recent drilling at the El Domo deposit in the Las Naves Central area of its Curipamba Volcanic Hosted Massive Sulphide Project in Ecuador.
Results from the most recent six drill holes (To see Figure 1, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/SZR_ELDOMO.pdf) demonstrate that the deposit remains open to the north east, to the east beneath the andesite cover and also to the south west.
The El Domo deposit now has a strike length of 850m North-South and an East-West width of between 200 to 300 m.
– Curi 94 intersected 6.41 meters at 3.38 g/t gold, 101.38 g/ t silver, 2.40% copper and 6.63% zinc within 16.08 m of mineralization. – Curi-90 intersected 2.90 meters of mineralization averaging 6.80 g/t
gold and 238.53 g/t silver and 8.30% zinc.
“The 16 meter intersection in DDH 94 is particularly important due to its position relative to a 3.13 m high-grade intersection in DDH 22located approximately 180 m to the north east” says Fredy Salazar, President and CEO. “We are optimistic that additional drilling in this area will establish continuity of potentially economic mineralization between these two drill holes and the current resource boundary further adding to what is already an exciting resource”.
The presence of a high grade massive sulphide intersection in DDH 94 expands the known mineralization an additional 50 m to the north and east. DDH 94 is located approximately 180 m south east of DDH 22 (4.77 g/t Au; 53.37 g/t Ag; 3.69% Cu and 1.62% Zn over 3.13m). Additional drilling is planned to test the strong geophysical anomaly present between DDH 94 and DDH 22.
Intersections in DDH 90 and 91, located in the southwest quadrant demonstrate the continuation of strong gold and zinc grades in the south west quadrant of the deposit.
The presence of almost 40 meters of lower grade sulphide mineralization in DDH 89 and including several zinc rich zones keep the western exploration limit of the deposit open, where additional follow up drilling is planned.
DDH 92 and 93 tested the extension of the massive sulphide body easterly below the sub-horizontal andesite intrusion over a 100 m strike length. The precious metal and zinc grades in DDH 93 offer further encouragement for the continuation of potentially economic mineralization to the east beneath the andesite cover.
The above information has been prepared under the supervision of Tom Healy P.Eng., who is designated as a Qualified Person as defined by NI-43-101 with the ability and authority to verify the authenticity and validity of the data.
A QC program was used whereby 5% of all samples sent to the laboratory were standard samples with known silver and gold values. Sample preparation was performed by BSI Inspectorate Quito, Ecuador, using standard industry practices (sample prep minus 32). Analytical work was carried out at the BSI Inspectorate Laboratory in Lima, Peru, using fire assay methods for gold (Au-25 procedure). Standard samples, blanks and duplicate check samples were randomly inserted to the sample batch to ensure quality control.
