“The targeted strong vuggy silica was encountered from 82.5 to 162 metres.”
“The targeted strong vuggy silica was entered at 38 metres depth, and the hole is continuing within this favourable zone at the current depth of 86 metres.”
“EAS field crews have discovered favourable vuggy silica in outcrops up to 600 metres west of EMD024, reinforcing the model that the mineralized silica zone extends under cover further west of the current Miwah Bluff outcrops and drilling.”
“EAS also announces several new discoveries of favourable vuggy silica in erosional window outcrops up to 600 metres to the west of the previously defined Miwah Main Zone, considerably expanding the potential east-west width of the Miwah Main Zone.”
“Strong and consistent gold mineralization in EMD022 and 023, the intersection of favourable vuggy silica to the north in EMD024, and newly discovered favourable outcrop to the west of the Main Zone, all reinforce our belief that the Miwah gold system is potentially one of the more important gold discoveries in this exploration cycle" remarked Michael Hawkins,”
“Of added significance is that the favourable vuggy silica was cut by an intensive crustiform and bladed quartz stockwork from 207.5 to 208.75 metres, being similar in appearance to the surface rock sawn channel sample in the eastern part of the Miwah Main Zone that graded 106.46 g/t gold over 4.6 metres ..”
“Gold is associated with extensive zones of vuggy silica, quartz-alunite and quartz-dickite-kaolinite alteration.”
“Preliminary prospecting at Tinco has identified pervasive quartz-alunite-clay alteration assemblages along with exposures of vuggy silica.”
“In some locations at Tinco, hydrothermal breccias with chalcedonic, granular and vuggy silica clasts and locally abundant limonite have been observed.”
“The cores through this interval show zones of vuggy and cavernous porosity as well as extensive fracturing and oil shows.”
