CABORCA, Mexico, Dec. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mexus Gold US (OTCQB: MXSG)(“Mexus” or the “Company”) announced that the first stage of exploration drilling has finished at the Santa Elena Project with 736 meters of core in 9 holes. The purpose of this initial drilling program is to study a major area of geologic interest where a high-grade gold quartz vein merges with a tectonic shear zone with gold/silver values. In the area, the shear zone outcrops with 8 to 10 meters width with a low angle dip to the East and it is cut by a steeper 0.75 to 1.5 meter wide quartz vein which has previously assayed high grades of gold. 200 core samples were collected from drilling and are being sent to ALS-Chemex labs for assays.
Drilling information will be interpreted with 3D software as the geologic structure is the key to following the favorable host zones for economic mineralization. Assay results will be added to complete the database and proceed with the geo-economic interpretation of the area. This area is only a 270 meter section of an approximately 3000 meter long structural anomaly which is still to be studied. More surface work as geologic mapping, sampling, geophysics, and trenching needs to be directed as to locate the best drilling targets along this structure as well as similar structures in the area. Assay results will evaluate this section but more samples need to be collected along the 3000 meter strike of the structure.
Santa Elena is originally a quartz vein system that was planned to be developed with more than 1 million tons in outcropping quartz vein mineralization averaging 0.3 to 1.5 g/t Au and with surface evidence and potential for major low angle shear zone structures such as Noche Buena and Herradura mines which are approximately 30 kilometers to the west.
Assay results from drilling will provide the guide for the next exploration stage towards locating a potential low angle shear zone gold and silver resource.
