Emerita Resources (TSXV: EMO) this morning released the initial results of its surface sampling program conducted at its Iberia Belt West project in Spain. Highlights from the program include samples hitting above 4% copper and 20% zinc at the La Infanta deposit, with silver values in some instances coming back higher than 500 g/t.
Surface sampling was conducted during the currently ongoing mapping program being conducted across the Infanta and Romanera deposits and the El Cura area. The company is currently looking to verify the presence of massive sulfide mineralization on the properties, while also working to identify priority drill targets.
A total of 23 samples were taken at La Infanta, while 41 were taken at La Romanera, and a further 20 at El Cura. Strike at La Infanta has been identified for at least 1,200 metres, with one sample returning values that include 0.925 g/t gold, 518 g/t silver, 4.26% copper, 6.37% lead and 12.2% zinc. La Romanera meanwhile has a trench on the property at least 450 metres long, where most of the samples were taken from. Here, highlight values hit higher than 10 g/t gold in some instances and more than 200 g/t silver, with zinc and lead also being present.
Finally, El Cura has limited surface exposure of mineralization. Samples here were taken from a 100 metre by 100 metre region that surrounds an old shaft and rock pile. Samples here reportedly tended to be copper-gold rich with low levels of zinc, silver and lead.
Mapping of the properties remains ongoing. Full details of the samples released this morning can be found here.
