Adelita Gold-Copper Project Expanded, New Skarn Zone Discovered

Mapping by Ocean Park has discovered mineralized skarn on the new claim with copper mineralization that is visually similar to that drilled at Cerro Grande. Assay results from this new skarn, the “Andalucia” zone, are pending. At this time, the skarn has been exposed in a series of trenches across 75 metres of strike in an area of limited bedrock exposure. As at Cerro Grande, the skarn is developed at the contact between the same granodiorite intrusion to the east and metasediments and metavolcanics to the west, with a strong structural control. The new zone is 2.5 kilometres south of previous drilling and indicates the mineralized intrusive-sediment contact has multi-kilometre, multi-zone potential.
