Trigon Reports a Shallow 8m Mineralized Intersection, Yielding 1.8% Copper and 121 G/t Silver at Silver Hill in Morocco
TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V: TM) (“Trigon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce assay results from hole S13, the first hole of a planned 3000 m drill campaign at the Company’s Silver Hill Project in Morocco (the “Project”).
An 8 m interval grading 1.8% copper and 121 g/t silver was intercepted at a depth of 32.5 m. Assay results included a 0.5 m interval of 14.87% copper, 1000 g/t silver and 173 ppm cobalt. (Cobalt assays indicate the mineral is present to a degree that may be of value in a concentrate.)Hole S13 is located at N 31°14’43,6″; W 004°46’53,3″; 70 degrees to N356, in the vicinity of Hole S1, which was drilled by Technomine (the previous owner of the Project) prior to Trigon’s acquisition of the Project. The intent of Trigon’s current drill program is to confirm the mineralization down-dip of the historic mined-out strike zone, identified by the drill program completed in November 2020 by Trigon. Additionally, it is hoped that this ongoing drill program will provide information as to the structural controls of the mineralization. Assay results are pending. During the last three weeks, 10 holes have been completed that targeted a structure believed to be the focus of historic mining, along 1.3 km of known strike length. The 0.5 m high grade interval mentioned above represents the highest silver assay reported on the property.The exploration team is also designing a subsequent exploration program which will utilize geophysical survey results in order to identify new targets similar to the discovery at S9, drilled in the November 2020 program, which returned 31 m at 0.7% copper, at a depth of 37 m.
