Eloro Resources: Discovers Major Breccia Pipe with Extensive Silver Polymetallic Mineralization and a High-Grade Gold-Bismuth Zone in the Iska Iska Property
Eloro Resources Discovers Major Breccia Pipe with Extensive Silver Polymetallic Mineralization and a High-Grade Gold-Bismuth Zone in the Iska Iska Property, Potosi Department, Southern Bolivia
- Number of extensive mineralized intersections in holes within major breccia pipe including 54.48 g Ag/t, 1.45% Zinc (Zn) and 1.60% Lead (Pb) over 16.39m (140.91 g Ag eq/t) within a broader interval of 122.74m grading 14.29 g Ag/t, 0.81% Zn and 0.41% Pb (53.67 g Ag/t eq) in Hole DHK-04;
- High Grade Gold-Bismuth zone averages 7.1 g Au/t and 0.2% Bi (8.29 g Au eq/t) over 3.04m width for strike length of 47m in underground workings and is open along strike to the north.
- 6.51g Au/t, 0.07% Bi and 31.96 g Ag/t (7.68 g Au eq/t) over 11.85m grading including 29.56 g Au/t,0.26% Bi/t and 63.69 g Ag/t (31.94 g Au eq/t) over 2.31m intersected in Hole DHK-05 on the strike extension of the high-grade Au-Bi zone.
TORONTO, Nov. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Eloro Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ELO; OTCQX: ELRRF FSE: P2QM) (“Eloro”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Minera Tupiza S.R.L., Eloro’s Bolivian subsidiary has completed 13 diamond drill holes totalling 2,898 metres of both underground and surface drilling at its optioned Iska Iska property in the Potosí Department of southern Bolivia. This is the first drilling ever carried out on the property. Figure 1 is a plan map showing locations of drill holes along with geology and alteration. Results from Hole DHK-01 to DHK-05 are reported in this press release; results for the other holes are pending. Due to the polymetallic nature of the deposit, silver equivalent (“Ag eq”) and where applicable gold equivalent (“Au eq”) values have been included for comparative purposes.
The Iska Iska altered-mineralized zone as currently defined is approximately 550m wide and has been initially drill tested over a strike length of 600m as shown in Figure 1. The zone is wide open along strike as well as downdip. Figure 2 is a west-east geological cross section highlighting the major breccia pipe discovery. Significant assay results are given in Table 1. Table 2 gives collar coordinates and azimuths/orientations for all drill holes completed to date. Results are also reported for additional channel sampling in the Huayra Kasa underground workings with complete results including previously released results (see press release October 8, 2019) in Table 3.
