Exploration Commences on Gold Discovery at El Brujo Property, Dominican Republic
|IMPACT Minerals International Inc. ("IMPACT") has commenced a follow-up exploration program on the El Brujo gold-silver-copper-zinc discovery in the Dominican Republic. The objective of the program is to further evaluate the extent of gold mineralization on the property and advance previously discovered targets towards drilling.|
A number of test pits and trenches will be completed and sampled over the 600 meter by 850 meter Gossan Zone. The Gossan Zone is characterized by widespread gossan and ferricrete subcrop and float boulders with highly anomalous gold values up to 3.7 grams gold per tonne, 130 grams silver per tonne and 4370 ppm copper. Pitting and trenching may also be undertaken on the Vein Zone, located 1.5 kilometers southeast of the Gossan Zone. Preliminary prospecting outlined quartz--iron oxide vein float with gold grades of 0.185 to 2.51 grams gold per tonne within a 350 meter by 450 meter area.
Anomalous gold-silver mineralization has been discovered on the El Brujo property in subcrop and float boulders over an eight kilometer strike length along a prominent NW-SE structure. More detailed prospecting of last year's gold discoveries in an area located three kilometers northwest of the Gossan Zone is currently underway. Prospecting further northwest along the prospective structure is also being conducted.
The widespread occurrence of gold-silver-copper mineralization and the size of the existing targets on the El Brujo property are highly encouraging at this stage of exploration. Geological data from the current exploration program should establish a better understanding of the controls and distribution of mineralization along this extensive high sulphidation epithermal gold mineralized system.
