Sun Metals (TSXV:SUNM) has announced final results from the 2018 diamond drill program at its Stardust project in northcentral British Columbia.
The company said it believes the 2018 program was successful in identifying a major mineralized pathway leading toward the heart of a high-grade system. The 2018 program was successful in identifying target areas to focus on in 2019 that are prospective for adding tonnage to the existing resource at Stardust.
Some results as highlighted in the press release:
- DDH18-SD-413, which targeted an extension to the existing resource model and returned 5.50 metres (m) grading 1.72 percent copper, 0.93 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 29.1 g/t silver.
- DDH18-SD-414, which targeted a geophysical and soil anomaly and returned high-grade manto style mineralization over a narrow intersection near surface. The hole returned a 0.60 m interval grading 0.59 g/t gold, 382.8 g/t silver and 21.22 percent zinc.
- Along strike from DDH18-SD-414, DDH-18-SD-415 intersected two intervals of manto style mineralization, the upper intersection returning 2.20 m grading 5.25 g/t gold, 16.4 g/t silver and 3.79 percent zinc, with the lower intersection returning 4.60 m grading 4.17 g/t gold, 34.5 g/t silver and 1.60 percent zinc.
- DDH18-SD-418 targeted a geophysical anomaly beneath the shallow Number 4B manto zone and intersected a number of manto style mineralized zones, the most significant being 3.10 m grading 5.05 g/t gold, 55.3 g/t silver and 5.23 percent zinc.
- Two holes targeted the open skarn extension of the number 5 lens within the historic resource. Hole DDH18-SD-424 returned 1.50 m grading 1.67 percent copper, 6.70 g/t gold and 27.0 g/t silver, with a narrower downhole intersection returning 0.60 m grading 10.00 percent copper, 5.17 g/t gold and 265.3 g/t silver. Hole DDH18-SD-427 returned 0.60 m grading 1.12 percent copper, 1.96 g/t gold and 16.1 g/t silver, with a downhole intersection returning 1.70 m grading 1.01 percent copper, 1.63 g/t gold and 11.8 g/t silver.
