Trigon Metals Inc. [TM-TSXV; PNTZF-OTC] reported assay results from holes S22 through S25. The holes complete the easternmost fence drilled to test the geometry and extent of the copper and silver mineralization at the 100%-optioned Silver Hill Project in Morocco. The results comprise the fourth of four fences drilled at the project.
Each of the holes demonstrated strong copper and silver mineralization. Two of the four holes show 30 metres of continuous mineralization. This fence of holes was drilled at the eastern extent of the drilling of this campaign and suggests that mineralization is intensifying in this direction.
Hole S23 returned 32 metres of 0.77% copper and 28.5 g/t silver, including11 metres of 1.01% copper and 37 g/t silver and,12 metres of 0.96% copper and 41 g/t silver. Hole S24 returned 30 metres of 0.73% copper and 21 g/t silver, including;13 metres of 0.91% copper and 39 g/t silver and 5 metresof 0.98% copper and 20 g/t silver.
See company press release for detailed assay results.
The four fences of drilling cover a relatively shallow well-mineralized area of about 750 metres in length and 200 metres wide that appears to open to the east, west and north.
Jed Richardson, President and CEO of Trigon Metals, said, “These holes represent some of the strongest mineralization we have seen in the four fences drilled. Our high-grade trench [13 metres 2.7% copper, 34.5 g/t silver and 82 ppm cobalt lies almost 2 km east of this last fence. Our work over the next months will be determining if the two zones form one continuous zone of mineralization, parallel structures or separate but related bodies.”
