Dia Bras Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DIB) has reported assay results from the La Verde high-sulfidation gold prospect at its wholly owned Batopilas Property in Chihuahua State, Mexico.
The Batopilas Property is located southeast of the Company's wholly owned Bolivar Property and is located less than 20 km to the east of Goldcorp´s El Sauzal gold mine and within one of the most important gold mining belts in the Sierra Madre Occidental of Northern Mexico.
"These results emphasize our strategy to explore and develop significant gold prospects as part of the Company's long-term growth plan," stated Daniel Tellechea, President and CEO. "These sample assays demonstrate that the large alteration area of La Verde, covering over 25 km2, is a strong, high-sulphidation gold system related to porphyry intrusions in the area. We have high grades of gold in outcrop over two structural trends, as well as highly anomalous stream sediment samples that indicate a gold mineralized area in the core of the large argillic alteration area. We believe that this area is an important prospect, and we are proceeding with additional sampling and mapping with the objective of locating drill targets that will be drilled in early 2011."
Method of Analysis
Samples were prepared at the ALS Chemex lab facility in Chihuahua, Mexico, and analyzed by ICP and AA methods at their facilities in Vancouver, Canada. Samples sent for analysis were prepared by the ALS Chemex sample preparation laboratory in Chihuahua, Mexico, and assayed for Au by 50 g fire assay with AA finish, and for Ag by AA on 50 g split sample at the ALS Chemex North Vancouver Laboratory. Assays for Pb, Zn and Cu are done by Induction Coupled Plasma (ICP) at ALS Chemex.
The quality assurance-quality control (QA-QC) program employed by Dia Bras has been described in detail in both RPA's NI 43-101 reports of December, 2006, at Cusi and October, 2005, for Bolivar.
