Mr Carter said: “We continue to be pleased with these results as they demonstrate the continuity of silver mineralization at Colquipucro. The presence of increasing zinc and lead mineralization in the lower section of these holes is a positive addition. Infill drilling is continuing on site and will include drilling to the west of the resource.”
The holes intercepted fractured, oxidized sandstone and siltstone of the Gollyar group and progressed into the underlying sedimentary breccia, greywacke siltstone and limestone of the Oyon group. The southerly directed holes intercepted the high grade veins/faults/gossan zones within the sandstone roughly perpendicular to the dip of the hole, more or less intersecting their true thickness, while the vertical hole intercepted the high grade structures (where present) at a shallow angle up to 45 degrees, hence, the intercept would be wider than the true thickness. The fracture-controlled mineralization between the high grade structures is of a “stockwork” or “porphyry” nature with fractures trending in various directions, although sub-vertical east-west trending fractures are common; thus, a “true thickness” for this style of mineralization cannot be ascertained. The orientation of the mineralization within the underlying sedimentary breccia is not clear, however, narrow zones of intense oxidation suggest that the mineralized structures in the overlying sandstone may penetrate the underlying unit. Fluidal textured sulphides in the Oyon sediments are believed to be parallel to the overlying contact (unconformity) with the Gollyar group.
Significant mineralized intervals, using a 15 g/t Ag cut-off, are shown below:

All diamond drilling has been performed using HQ diameter drill rods, reducing to NQ diameter if required. All core has been logged and split on site under the supervision of Tinka geologists with sampling done on nominal two metre intervals. All the samples have been transported by Company staff to SGS Laboratories in Lima, Peru, for ICP analyses using multi-acid digestion. Analytical standards and blanks were routinely introduced in the sample suites sent to the laboratory, and samples that exceeded their respective threshold levels for Ag, Zn and Pb were re-assayed by specific atomic absorption techniques.
