San Marco Resources announces that its exploration activities on the 100% optioned Buck gold/silver property are continuing in preparation for drilling.
San Marco Resources Inc. (TSXV:SMN) announces that its exploration activities on the recently 100% optioned Buck gold/silver property are continuing in preparation for drilling. Drilling will commence upon receipt of a drill permit (for which an application has already been made).
The Buck property is located approximately 15 km south of Houston B.C. and has excellent road access enabling year-round exploration. Historical exploration includes drilling, ground and airborne geophysics, soil and rock chip grid sampling. San Marco’s geologists have compiled all available data, generated a 3-D model of historical drill assays, re-logged what little drill core is available and completed a reinterpretation of exploration potential.
San Marco believes that mineralized drill core from previous exploration activities of others, indicates a breccia/diatreme (pipe) complex, which appears to be geologically similar to many multi-million ounce gold deposits worldwide. (See the corporate presentation on San Marco’s website for details.).
Compelling exploration features on the Buck property include:
- Surface gold/silver mineralization footprint 800m X 600m, open in all directions.
- Mineralized breccia from surface to 250m (vertical) and open in depth. This is confirmed in the area where reasonable drill core was retrieved and re-logged.
- All historical drill holes have strong to significant gold/silver mineralization, the majority of which end in mineralization.
- Additional exploration targets exist on the ~15,000-ha property.
- Excellent road access allows for year-round exploration.
Bob Willis, San Marco’s Executive Director, states: “Acquisition of the Buck gold/silver project gives our exploration team an excellent opportunity to quickly create shareholder value through an aggressive drill program. Initial drilling, designed around our breccia/diatreme model, will step out from areas where we were able to retrieve historical drill core and identify long intercepts of mineralized breccia. Thanks to the efforts of previous explorers, none of whom focused on a breccia/diatreme model, we already know the main target area at Buck has the scale to accommodate a large gold resource. But we’re equally interested in the target because it’s still open in most directions and in Buck’s broader potential because there are other areas that present good, and untested, targets when viewed using the new breccia/diatreme model.”
