55 core duplicate samples were considered mineralized intervals grading over 1.0 percent zinc -43 percent of total mineralized intervals.
Emerita Resources (TSXV:EMO) has announced that it has received the assay results for the re-sampling of the historical diamond drill core at the Salobro zinc project located in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
The results will be used in the companies mineral resource estimate for the project.
As quoted in the press release.
As part of quality assurance-quality control procedures, 1,184 core duplicate samples (54 percent of total samples) from previous drilling programs completed by Vale S.A. were sent to the ALS laboratory for check assays. ALS is independent of Emerita. From this total, 55 core duplicate samples were considered mineralized intervals grading over 1.0 percent zinc (43 percent of total mineralized intervals).
The company’s ongoing diamond drill program is progressing as planned at the Salobro Project. The phase 1 drill program contemplates 3,500 meters (23 drill holes) of diamond drilling intended to expand the existing resource. To date, 2,740.60 meters (17 drill holes) have been drilled and assay results for two drill holes have been received.
