Cordoba Minerals (TSXV:CDB)
Market cap: $6 million
Cash estimate: $4.5 million
Project: San Matias
Ownership: 100 oercent
Project status: Additional drilling
- Cordoba Minerals intersected near-surface copper-gold porphyry mineralization on the Company’s 100 percent owned San Matias project in Colombia. The project is located 200 kilometers north of the city of Medellin in northern Colombia at the inferred northern edge of the Mid Cauca Gold Belt. The project is at an elevation of between 100 meters and 170 meters above sea level.
- Highlights from the newly identified southern extension of the Montiel East target include 200.1 meters grading 0.42 percent copper and 0.33 g/t gold starting at surface. The top 118.39 meters of the hole averaged 0.71 percent copper and 0.56 g/t gold. While the drilling shows that the zone remains open to the south and southeast, the porphyry appears to be dipping south under a mafic volcanic unit. The mineralization is largely hosted in porphyry dyke and sill like intrusive rocks with both sheeted and stockwork style quartz-magnetite-chalcopyrite-bornite mineralization.
- The 20,000 hectare land package is largely unexplored in modern times. Limited work had been conducted in the region but no known exploration has occurred in the key Montiel East, Montiel East and Costa Azul areas. The Company has covered the 13 kilometer strike zone with regional scale steam sediment sampling outlining a number of high priority targets.
- The Company intends to follow up the results of the regional geochemistry program with a ground magnetic survey which they believe will help define additional drill targets due to the strong association of magnetite with the copper-gold mineralization.
Discovery Hole (November 2013): 101.1 meters at 1.0 percent copper, 0.65 g/t gold
Current drilling: 200.1 meters at 0.42 percent copper, 0.33 g/t gold
