Sego Resource's 2018 Phase 2 Drilling And Trenching Programme Discovers Important New Zone at Miner Mountain
In the Phase-2 2018 Programme, Sego drilled 1100 metres with 5 drill holes. Split core samples have been sent to the laboratory, MS Analytical, in Langley, BC. The Company expects to have assays available in early 2019. Drilling was designed to extend and define the Cuba Zone.
In addition, Sego excavated 100 meters of trenching during the programme, and exposed a new important zone approximately 500 metres west of the Cuba Zone. This zone was originally defined on combined soil and geophysical anomalies. Trenches uncovered roughly 100 metres of extensive alteration and copper mineralization, including malachite, azurite, and chalcopyrite. A percussion drill hole located southwest of the new zone had previously assayed 0.2% copper and 0.1 grams/tonne gold over hole length of 56 metres. Trench samples from this zone are at MS Analytical in Langley, BC, and results are pending.
The programme was developed as the beginning of a much larger scale exploration programme designed to expand and enhance mineralization at Sego's Miner Mountain Project. A mapping study by Ron Britten, PhD., P.Eng., has indicated that the target areas are a confluence of multiple overlapping features consistent with copper-gold alkaline porphyry in British Columbia.
The results of the Phase-2 2018 drilling programme will be used to target the next round of exploration expected to start in early 2019. The Company's geologists are currently studying the entire Cuba Zone and the new discovery zone in detail.
J Paul Stevenson, CEO, stated: "The drilling in Phase-2 2018 Programme, combined with previous exploration data and drilling, to date, has unquestionably revealed the existence of a new zone on the west side of the property and has greatly expanded the Cuba Zone. Utilizing the data and exploration from the 2018 programme, Sego is planning to explore more of our targets in the next year."
