Sailfish Royalty Provides Update on its San Albino Gold Stream; Highlighted by SW Pit Expansion Drilling
On June 21, 2022, Mako Mining Corp. ("Mako") announced additional high-grade drill results from an area beginning approximately 50 meters ("m") southwest of the current open pit mining operations at San Albino.
Cesar Gonzalez, Chief Executive Officer of Sailfish states that, "the delineation of a mineralized area at the SW Pit of approximately 530 m x 470 m (strike x dip) versus only 50 m x 50 m in Mako's 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate bodes well for the potential expansion of mineable resources at San Albino, where Sailfish has a gold stream equivalent to a 3% NSR."
Highlights (from Mako's June 21, 2022 news release)
Recent drilling has confirmed gold mineralization over an area of approximately 530 m x 470 m (strike x dip) in an area that was identified in the 2020 Mineral Resource Estimate as the SW Pit. At the time of the resource estimate, this area measured approximately 50 m x 50 m.
To date a total of 27,533 m in 202 drill holes (2011-2022) has been completed in the area. Most of the drilling intersected mineralization within, or immediately outside, the currently permitted pit limits.
Highlights of selected intercepts of the high-grade gold mineralization include:
- 42.91 g/t Au and 38.3 g/t Ag over 4.50 m (4.1 m estimated true width "ETW") in hole SA22-615
- 21.21 g/t Au and 35.5 g/t Ag over 2.00 m (1.4 m ETW) in hole SA22-609
- 34.35 g/t Au and 24.9 g/t Ag over 2.80 m (2.7 m ETW) in hole SA22-546
- 20.06 g/t Au and 71.3 g/t Ag over 1.00 m (ETW) in hole SA21-545
The objective of the SW Pit drilling program is to delineate new mineral resources amenable to open pit and underground mining methods in the sparsely tested southwestern portion of the permitted pit limit, as well as to test extensions of this mineralization beyond the permitted pit limit.
