The samples were taken along planned drill targets on the property, with the highlight value froming from a channel sample measuring 9.1 g/t gold over 3.4 metres.
A total of 55 channel samples and 181 soil samples were taken from the project as the firm works towards target definition on the project. Of the channel samples taken, 22% resulted in higher than 0.6 g/t gold values being reported, while 49% reported gold values higher than 0.2 g/t gold.
Soil sampling meanwhile returned results as high as 0.9 g/t gold. The program was conducted on a grid with 50 metre spaced lines, and 25 metres between samples. The program resulted in the definition of a continuous 550 metre long gold-in-soil anomaly being discovery. The discovery merges the Santa Rosalia and Santa Rosalia Sur zones of mineralization, with a zone referred to as Centro De Rosalia, with a total length of 1.7 kilometres of mineralization.
An induced polarity survey is now being conducted over the two primary targets, which may be extended to include the newly discovered Centro De Rosalia zone as well.
