San Marco Resources Inc. (TSXV:SMN) intercepted 8.46 g/t gold; 43.0 g/t silver; 1.2% copper; 2.1% lead and 0.32% zinc over 1.4m, and reported other geochemical and geophysical results from continuing exploration at the Angeles property, Sonora State, Mexico.
As quoted in the press release:
Underground workings, apparently 90 – 100 years old have been accessed, however most areas of previous mining activity have collapsed. At the end of one short inclined shaft, geologists were able to sample the mineralized structure (massive hematite with malachite and chrysocolla) approximately 70m below surface that was not mined in the past. Results include:
- 8.46 g/t gold; 43.0 g/t silver; 1.2% copper; 2.1% lead and 0.32% zinc over 1.4m
The hanging wall of the fault structure (fractured hematite cemented breccia with micro veinlet’s) appears to be 3 – 4 m wide in the area, however only 1m could be sampled safely. Results are:
- 3.27 g/t gold; 20.2 g/t silver; 0.55% copper; 0.41% lead and 0.20% zinc over 1m
- It is interesting to note that as previously reported (San Marco news release dated June 18, 2012), fourteen randomly taken dump samples that are presumed to be the waste rock from the hanging wall averaged:
- 3.32 g/t gold; 50.0 g/t silver; 1.0% copper; 2.0% lead and 0.5% zinc (average of the 14 samples)
