Tinka Identifies Further Surface Mineralization at Zone 1, Colquipucro, Peru
A zone of highly fractured and oxidized sandstone was found about 100 m northwest of the site of fanned drill holes CDD-21 to CDD-23. These holes discovered wide intercepts of silver mineralization where no historical workings along high grade veins exist on surface.
Two lines of contiguous chip/channel samples, 20 m and 25 m long and located about 20 m apart, were taken. Along one line a contiguous 16 m section averaged just over 20 g/t Ag and 22 m interval averaged just under 1,000 ppm lead. These are considered significant results as the surface outcrops would be leached and not reflecting the actual metal content at depth. The section between the drill site, mentioned above, and this area is along steep terrain that cannot be accessed from surface. This target area has been included in the new drill permit application currently being reviewed and processed.
Mapping and sampling continues to focus on the large transverse fault that marks the western margin of the mineralized zones found on the property. This fault is believed to be partially responsible for the ground preparation and mineralization at Colquipucro.
