VANCOUVER, BC, April 12, 2021 /CNW/ – Filo Mining Corp. (TSXV: FIL) (Nasdaq First North Progress Market: FIL) (OTCQX: FLMMF) (“Filo Mining”, or the “Firm”) is happy to announce further assay outcomes from the present drill program at Filo del Sol, together with the invention of a brand new zone of oxide gold mineralization 1.5 km north of the Filo del Sol deposit and the extension of the Filo high-grade silver zone by 600m to the north. Highlights are listed under, together with accompanying figures: View PDF
The brand new oxide gold discovery was intersected in gap FSDH042 which drilled 48m at 1.01 g/t gold. This gap is 260m away from the closest drill gap, 1,500m north of the Filo del Sol deposit, and lies west of the principle copper development;
Two new holes intersected the silver zone north of the earlier northernmost intersection in gap FSDH032. Gap FSDH041 intersected 120m at 54.3 g/t silver (180m north of FSDH032), and FSDH037 intersected 104m at 119.9 g/t silver (600m north of FSDH032). This will increase the full size of the silver zone to 2,050m. Assay outcomes from FSDH037 and FSDH041 listed here are partial outcomes with full assays pending.
Commenting on the outcomes, President and CEO Jamie Beck mentioned “Whereas the copper story at Filo del Sol builds, these outcomes spotlight the distinctive valuable metals wealthy nature of the system. A brand new gold zone found in gap FSDH042, which intersected the sting of a modelled conductivity anomaly, confirms our expectation that the Filo del Sol system extends effectively past the identified deposit. Moreover, partial outcomes from holes FSDH037 and FSDH041 have led to a big northern growth of the identified high-grade silver zone. We’re assured that as we proceed to develop our drill footprint, we’ll proceed to make new discoveries. This system is now in full swing, with 5 rigs turning, and we count on a gentle stream of assay outcomes over the subsequent few months.”
* not all assays obtained
Eight holes have been accomplished through the present season, with 5 holes in progress. Full assay outcomes have been obtained for 4 holes – three of which had been reported within the March 31st information launch, and FSDH042 is reported right here.
Gap FSDH042 was drilled to a complete depth of 648m, with the gold zone assaying 1.01 g/t gold over 48m between 262 and 310m. The zone is characterised by oxidized intense silica alteration and hydrothermal brecciation which extends from floor to a depth of 400m within the host rhyolite. Brecciation is especially well-developed inside the mineralized zone.
Hydrothermal breccia with intense silica alteration is mapped at floor within the space of FSDH042, and this goal is additional supported by floor geochemical samples with anomalous gold, silver and pathfinder components.
Gap FSDH037 was began final season and drilled to a depth of 205m earlier than this system was curtailed. The opening was re-entered this season, and accomplished to a last depth of 882m, with full assay outcomes pending. Silver mineralization is hosted by quartz-alunite altered rhyolite with disseminations and veinlets of pyrite and related chalcocite and covellite.
Gap FSDH041 was accomplished to a last depth of 1,046m with full assay outcomes pending. The silver zone on this gap has a extra brecciated facet and is characterised by plentiful fine-grained pyrite with accent chalcocite and covellite.
The silver zone represents a roughly tabular physique which dips shallowly to the north, and now extends over a north-south distance of 2,050m and an east-west distance of about 500m. Previous to this 600m extension, the approximate 1,450m x 500m x 25m interpretation of this zone represented a useful resource of 114 Mozs indicated (40.5Mt at 87.6 g/t silver) plus 22M ozs inferred (8.8Mt at 79.3 g/t silver). The zone is roughly parallel to stratigraphy inside volcaniclastic models within the host rock, and mineralization seems to be managed by porosity and permeability inside these models. The intersections in holes FSDH037 and FSDH041 lie alongside the northern projection of this zone. Our present interpretation is that the mineralization is a results of lateral fluid move alongside beneficial stratigraphic models, fed by a vertical feeder zone. The interpreted feeder zone stays a compelling exploration goal.
Full assays for holes FSDH037 and FSDH041, together with the rest of the holes might be launched in batches as they’re obtained. Drilling is deliberate to proceed to the top of Could, depending on climate at web site as winter approaches the Southern hemisphere, and the continued success of our COVID administration plan.

About Filo del Sol
Filo del Sol is a high-sulphidation epithermal copper-gold-silver deposit related to a number of massive porphyry copper-gold programs. Overlapping mineralizing occasions mixed with weathering results, together with supergene enrichment, have created a number of totally different kinds of mineralization, together with structurally-controlled and breccia-hosted gold, manto-style high-grade silver (+/- copper) and high-grade supergene enriched copper inside a broader envelope of disseminated, stockwork and breccia-hosted sulphide copper and gold mineralization. This complicated geological historical past has created a heterogeneous orebody which is characterised by zones of very high-grade copper +/- gold +/- silver mineralization inside a big envelope of extra homogeneous, lower-grade mineralization.
Certified Individuals and Technical Notes
The scientific and technical disclosure for the Filo del Sol Venture included on this information launch have been reviewed and authorised by Bob Carmichael, B.A.Sc., P.Eng. who’s the Certified Particular person as outlined by NI 43-101. Mr. Carmichael is Vice President, Exploration for the Firm. Samples had been reduce at Filo Mining’s operations base close to the city of Guañizuil, Argentina by Firm personnel. Diamond drill core was sampled in 2 metre intervals (besides the place shortened by geological contacts) utilizing a rock noticed for sulphide mineralization. Oxide mineralization was reduce with a core splitter with the intention to stop dissolution of water-soluble copper minerals through the moist sawing course of. Core diameter is a mixture of PQ, HQ and NQ relying on the depth of the drill gap. Samples had been bagged and tagged and packaged for cargo by truck to the ALS preparation laboratory in Mendoza, Argentina the place they had been crushed and a 500g cut up was pulverized to 85% passing 200 mesh. The ready samples had been despatched to the ALS assay laboratory in Lima, Peru for copper, gold and silver assays, and multi-element ICP and sequential copper analyses. ALS is an accredited laboratory which is unbiased of the Firm. Gold assays had been by hearth assay fusion with AAS end on a 30g pattern. Copper and silver had been assayed by atomic absorption following a 4 acid digestion. Samples had been additionally analyzed for a set of 36 components with ICP-ES and a sequential copper leach evaluation was accomplished on every pattern with copper higher than 500ppm (0.05%). Copper and gold requirements in addition to blanks and duplicates (subject, preparation and evaluation) had been randomly inserted into the sampling sequence for High quality Management. On common, 9% of the submitted samples are High quality Management samples. No information high quality issues had been indicated by the QA/QC program.
Particulars of the methodology and assumptions used to estimate the useful resource estimate will be discovered within the Technical Report titled “NI 43-101 Technical Report, Pre-feasibility Examine for the Filo del Sol Venture” dated February 22, 2019 with an efficient date of January 13, 2019.
The silver zone inside the Filo del Sol deposit is usually gently dipping (~10 levels) and drilled widths in holes FSDH037 and FSDH041 are interpreted to be very near true widths. Further drilling is required to grasp the geometry of the intersection is FSDH042, and its true width is presently unsure.
