Cascadero samples average of 3.23 g/t Au at Santa Rosa
CASCADERO COPPER Corp. has released exploration results from its Santa Rosa I property in Salta province, Argentina.
Two hundred seventy-five rock grab samples averaged 3.238 grams per tonne gold, 17.34 g/t silver and 0.797 per cent lead.
The Santa Rosa vein system continues to deliver a good distribution of mineralization over its seven-kilometre length characterized by individual to parallel sets of quartz-limonite-hematite veins. These veins are subparallel to bedding but crosscut geology when folding and faulting are present. These samples significantly increase the density of rock grab samples announced in a previous Cascadero Copper news release published on June 13, 2017. Mineralization is present in 10 of the 13 defined areas of alteration and exposed veins. This fact justifies more work on all zones.
A program of overburden sampling is planned to test the areas that exist where the vein system is not exposed between the altered zones. Subsequent to those results, excavator trenching is planned to determine the various widths of the vein system and will enable sampling of the host wall rock. The objective is to develop a drill program that enables a resource calculation and to outline the potential for a bulk tonnage mining operation. Santa Rosa I property consists of 2,866 hectares and is owned and financed 70 per cent by Cascadero and 30 per cent by Regberg. It is located about 100 km north of Salta City in Salta province, Argentina. It is road accessible. The elevation is about 3,400 metres and year-round work is possible.
