Cola consists of quartz-sulphide vein swarms and stockworks and is located within a 12 km x 3 km area that includes the Papayal and Cerro Verde high-grade gold and silver discoveries. It was originally identified in initial reconnaissance sampling of the Papayal area that was reported by the Company on May 6, 2004.
The new rock sampling program at Cola was widely-spaced, covering five square kilometres. It consisted of channel sampling from surface outcrops of quartz-sulphide veining and stockworks.
Results from 64 rock samples taken have significantly extended gold and silver mineralization at Cola, returning best assay values of 6.26 g/t gold and 79 g/t silver over 8 metres and 30.10 g/t gold and 19 g/t silver over 0.7 metres in quartz-sulphide vein and stockwork structures.
The program identified new quartz-sulphide vein swarms and stockworks at Cola, the largest of which occur within an area 500 metres by 600 metres. Individual veins are visible in outcrop of up to 150 metres and widths varying from 0.3 metres to 10 metres. Three drill target areas have been outlined from this latest sampling program.
Company President and CEO, Robert Washer, commented: "With the recent work at Cola, and the on-going drilling program at Papayal and Cerro Verde, we continue to advance our understanding of the precious metal component of the Dynasty Copper-Gold Belt. Our objective now is to bring these discoveries into resources as rapidly and as efficiently as possible."
Significant results from new rock channel sampling at Cola are presented in Table 1. Significant results from the previously-announced reconnaissance channel sampling at Cola are given in Table 2.
