Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 11, 2021) – Capitan Mining Inc. (TSXV: CAPT) (“Capitan” or the “Firm”) is happy to report outcomes for 5 drill holes.
- 20-CARC-11 intersected 57.9 m of 0.94 g/t AuEq together with 18.3 m of two.04 g/t AuEq.
- 20-CARC-13 intersected 100.6 m of 0.42 g/t AuEq together with 21.3 m of 0.67 AuEq.
- New drilling has confirmed that Capitan Hill gold mineralization continues alongside strike to the east, over 250 m past the 2015 43-101 useful resource and stays open to growth to the east, west and down-dip.
- Drill Holes Pending: 20-CARC-16 and 20-CARC-17.
- Drilling to recommence on January 11th, 2021.
The 5 drill holes reported herein focused the western and japanese limits of the Capitan Foremost zone, the place there was restricted information of continuity and grade as historic drilling was sparse in these areas. The aim of those holes was to verify the potential to increase Capitan Hill mineralization inside these areas, in addition to examine the undrilled potential alongside strike.
Capitan’s CEO, Alberto Orozco, said: “The present drill program has continued to verify our thesis that there’s wonderful potential to increase the scale of the identified useful resource at Capitan Hill. Outcomes from the continued program proceed to point out vast intercepts of mineralization coincident with deep zones of oxidation, each down-dip of identified gold zones, and in addition inside areas of sparse, historic drilling alongside strike. We’re excited to see that gold and silver mineralization continues to increase and stays open in all instructions. That is indicative of how untimely the maiden useful resource was for this venture.”
Gap 20-CARC-13 was drilled on part -500, 70 m from of the western limits of the Capitan predominant zone. Historic drilling positioned up-dip (CDDH-12-21) intersected typical Capitan Hill type mineralization, however to the west, historic drilling indicated the zone was considerably narrower and weaker. Gap 20-CARC-13, which returned 100.6 m of 0.42 g/t AuEq, illustrates that this can be an area, weak space within the Capitan predominant zone, and that drilling on the part to the west was positioned simply above of the primary plunge of Capitan Hill zone. Additional drilling will probably be deliberate to analyze the western extension of the Capitan predominant zone and to additional examine the undrilled potential past the present drilling limits.
Gap 20-CARC-11 was designed to check the down-dip/down plunge extension of the Capitan predominant zone from holes 20-CARC-01 and 12, each of which returned sturdy drill outcomes together with 51.8 m of 0.46 g/t AuEq and 73.15 m of 0.63 g/t AuEq respectively. The outlet reduce the primary Capitan zone ranging from 53 m and was current in 6 distinct gold zones ranging in width from 9.1 to 57.9 m, with the perfect intersection returning 57.9 m of 0.94 g/t AuEq (together with 18.3 m of two.04 g/t AuEq) and efficiently extending the primary Capitan zone between 85 to 105 m downdip from gap 20-CARC-01. Gap 20-CARC-11 ended prematurely in mineralization because of technical challenges.
Holes 20-CARC-10, 14 and 15 had been drilled inside the japanese most portion of the Capitan predominant zone, the place historic drilling was typically extensively spaced, concentrating on the zone near floor.
Gap 20-CARC-10 on part 000 was a step-out gap that efficiently prolonged the Capitan Hill zone between 45-65 m down-dip, intersecting 3 distinct zones, essentially the most vital being 64 m of 0.27 g/t AuEq and 45.7 m of 0.31 g/t AuEq (together with 4.6 m of 1.41 g/t AuEq).
Gap 20-CARC 14 drilled on part 100 was an infill gap that was designed to check a 100 m hole between historic core holes CDDH-11-12 and CDDH-11-08. The outlet efficiently intersected the Capitan Hill zone in two intervals, with essentially the most vital returning 25.9 m of 0.36 g/t AuEq (together with 12.2 m of 0.48 g/t AuEq).
Gap 20-CARC-15 drilled on part 300 was a step-out gap to designed to check the down-dip extension beneath historic core gap CDDH-11-03. The outlet intersected 5 separate zones of Capitan hill type mineralization, ranging in width from 7.6 to 38.1 m, and returned typically low grades, essentially the most vital being 16.8 m of 0.24 g/t AuEq. This gap efficiently prolonged the primary Capitan Hill zone between 50 and 85 m down-dip.
