Following the completion of the El Tigre resource estimation in September 2017, Oceanus directed its exploration efforts during 2018 at identifying other areas of gold-silver mineralization across the expansive property holdings (21,774 hectares). The 2018 prospecting and mapping program identified in excess of 10 kilometers of favorable host stratigraphy (i.e. the El Tigre formation) with several areas of mineralization identified to the south, east and north-east of the old El Tigre Mine. The El Tigre formation is the rock package that hosts the historic El Tigre Mine, which operated from 1903 to 1938, and was reported to have produced a total of 353,000 ounces of gold and 67.4 million ounces of silver from 1.87 million tonnes averaging 7.54 g/t gold and 1,308 g/t silver (Steven D. Craig, B.A., M.Sc., P. Geo. 2012).
Oceanus' drilling after filing its’ 43-101 compliant resource estimate intersected similar-style gold-silver mineralization in the El Tigre formation at the Protectora, Caleigh (new discovery by Oceanus) and Fundadora (exploration drifting by Anaconda Mining in 1983) areas to the north of the old mine, as well as to the south, past Gold Hill (refer to map below). Drilling to the north of the old mine late in 2017 returned the following impressive gold-silver intercepts:
Notes to Table:
- True width has not been calculated for each individual intercept, but true width is generally estimated at 75-90% of drilled width. Metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns are assumed to be 100%.
- Gold Equivalent (“AuEq75”) ratio based on gold to silver price ratio of 75:1 Ag:Au.
These diamond drill holes were some of the last holes drilled by Oceanus with no follow up work in this area having been undertaken. The Company has recently mobilized the exploration team back to the property to continue prospecting and mapping, as well as, sampling in area of the Caleigh vein. The objective of this program is to ready targets for a drill program.
