Azulcocha has been historically known as a Zinc mine; preliminary exploration work by Vena geologists into a new area of the property has encountered a gold zone of possible significance which is near surface and appears open in multiple directions. New surface drill locations will be added to test the extent of gold mineralization. Close to 1.1 gpt gold is known to exist in the million tons tailings structure (NI 43-101 compliant) and several drill holes report gold showings from 0.2 gpt to 3 gpt in multiple intersects.
Drill holes DDH – 0 – 01 through DDH – 40 - 12 tested for continuity of the historical ore body between the 0 and -40 levels of the mine, with good results. Results from DDH -40 -7, -40 – 10 and -40 – 11 were particularly encouraging with true vein widths of 22.2 m, 16.1 m and 32.5 m of potentially economic mineralization reported. In addition, a drill program testing for continuity of the historical ore body has from below level -40 has been initiated. The complete assay database will be posted on the company’s web site at www.venaresources.com as soon as assays from all holes are received from the labs.
The drilling program is being supervised by William R. Henkle, Jr. P.Geo., Vena’s Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101. Core samples are cut with a diamond saw, with one-half of the core placed in sealed bags and shipped to SGS in Lima, Peru, an ISO certified assay laboratory. The program includes an extensive quality control program for assaying which includes the systematic use of standards, blanks, and field duplicate samples. Secondary laboratories are also used for check assaying.
