TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Monterey Minerals Inc. (the “Company” or “Monterey”) (CSE: MREY) is pleased to report on results from the 2019 soil sampling, prospecting and mapping program recently completed on the Company’s Cobalt Mountain Property located near Smithers British Columbia. The Company announced that the program was underway on October 8, 2019.
President and CEO, James Macintosh stated: “Building on previous work, crews were able to define multiple soil anomalies for both copper and molybdenum that are related to magnetic anomalies identified by previous operators. Zonation of mineralization as you would expect from a porphyry system is starting to become apparent, allowing us to begin to build a model that will drive future exploration.”Figure 1 – Soil Sample Results Overlain on Magnetic Highs: https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/b4bb9f64-218f-4c73-b9bb-ea972b061bddThe Zante Target showing hosts the largest copper (Cu) and coincidental molybdenum (Mo) anomalies covering an area of 1500m x 1000m with the Cu/Mo overlying geophysical magnetic highs. The Cu anomalies remain open to the east, west and north towards Tina. (Figure 1).In addition to the Zante Target showing, limited sampling indicates coincidental Cu and Mo soil anomalies at Corinth Target area along with stockwork Cu mineralization. Both the historic Tina and Balsam targets returned elevated values for Cu in soils and rock samples.
