Tinka Resources Limited (TSXV - TK; Frankfurt - TLD; Pinksheets -TKRFF). Andrew Carter, President, reports that the Company has received a report from an independent geophysicist on the induced polarisation survey undertaken on the Company's Tibillos copper porphyry property, located in the coastal batholith 65 km east of Ica, Peru.
The pole-dipole survey consisted of 12 lines totalling 20 km with the object of determining, where possible, the geometry and zoning features of the porphyry target. The data was modelled using both the Zonge 2-D and UBC 3-D inversion programs; both methods produced similar and coherent chargeability and resistivity models.
The IP data has produced a target area in the central part of the porphyry roughly 800 m east-west by up to 500 m north-south. This model fits the observed surface mineralisation. Also, there exists a conductive body in the southeastern part of the survey area that is underlain by volcanics. Skarn-style mineralisation was noted in a small mine operated by informal miners about 2 km southeast from here which is hosted by similar rocks. This area will be drill tested in addition to the central porphyry targets.
Mr. Carter said: "We are pleased that this important step has been completed as it will allow the Company to advance the project as quickly as possible. An application for an initial drill program has now been lodged with the Peruvian authorities."
