Cas­cadero sam­ples av­er­age of 3.23 g/t Au at Santa Rosa

Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. Bill McWil­liam re­ports

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.

This news re­lease and con­tained tech­ni­cal data were re­viewed and ap­proved by Dr. George Gale, PhD, PEng, qual­i­fied per­son for the com­pany.
