It is noteworthy holes LN-34, 37 and 38-15 extend mineralized breccia
to 250 to 300 meters vertically below the surface exposure confirming the depth potential of the La Negra Breccia
Shane Ebert, President of Gold Reach, commented: "we are very excited to have drilled into a large zone of mineralized breccia
containing rounded milled clasts of sedimentary rocks, intrusive rocks, and quartz veins in a hydrothermal and intrusive matrix.
Combining the high-grade intervals encountered within the lower breccia
host in 13-08 and 13-11 with the high-grade intervals in the upper breccia
as found in RR11-16, 12-01 and 12-10 extends the North Bullion high-grade zone a further 50 meters to 250 meters, within a much larger envelope of above-one-gram material which is now 1000 meters (1km) long and averages 300 meters wide.
For geologists, the breccia
pipes have been stimulating questions that are yet unanswered.
Located on the Colorado Plateau province of northern Arizona known as the Arizona Strip, the North Pipes Super Project is targeted specifically for high-grade uranium mineralization through numerous breccia
La Negra is a strong and explosive diatreme breccia
as evidenced by the strong tourmaline-sericite-quartz alteration throughout the matrix and dominant sericite alteration of clasts and textures and variety of clasts.
pipes are part of the large uranium bearing breccia
pipe terrain which occurs on the Arizona Strip lying just south of the Utah border.
States Kootenay President and CEO James McDonald "We are very pleased to conclude our inaugural drill program on the La Negra Diatreme Breccia
system that has resulted in a significant and exciting new silver discovery in Mexico.
Grab samples from the Camila Breccia
have returned 1.
Holes LN 15 to 18 were drilled at the western edge of the breccia
and seem to define the western extent of the main breccia
The holes have penetrated the northwest and northeast walls of the Neola breccia
pipe in four places.
The purpose of these holes was to probe part of the Neola area where multiple geoscientific indicators suggest potential for a good breccia
pipe within the Neola collapse structure.
V)("Kootenay") is pleased to announce all seven holes of its Phase I drill program on its La Negra Diatreme Breccia
prospect have returned significant grades of widespread silver mineralization extending from surface to depth, confirming a substantial new silver discovery.
These Properties were acquired as a result of the Company's geological teams' identification of several breccia
pipes on the Properties.
This drill is designed so that a true vertical hole can be drilled through the cobbles and boulders of the three targeted uranium bearing collapse breccia
pipes without significant deviation.
