Almaden Minerals has announced drilling results from holes TU-11-15 through 17 at Ixtaca zone in Tuligtic property. Almaden has drilled TU-11-15 and TU-11-17 holes on a section found 35 meters along the strike from the previous hole TU-10-6 drilled to the northeast.
In order to analyze mineralization extent, Almaden has drilled TU-11-16 hole on the section along with previous holes TU-10-11 and TU-10-13. All the three holes have encountered high-grade mineralization zones that cover several veins with altered and veined dykes.
The company intersects 0.82 g/t gold and 28.4 g/t silver over 137.7 meters, 31.46 g/t gold and 69.4 g/t silver over 2.30 meters and 3.49 g/t gold and 237.5 g/t silver over 1.18 meters in TU-11-15.
From hole TU-11-16, Almaden cuts 3.68 g/t gold and 776.1 g/t silver over 1.89 meters, 6.13 g/t gold and 601.9 g/t silver over 3.02 meters, 5.74 g/t gold and 336.9 g/t silver over 2.61 meters.
Almaden also intersects 2.68 g/t gold and 416.9 g/t silver over 8.27 meters including 0.79 g/t gold and 77.7 g/t silver over 104.47 meters in TU-11-17.
So far, drilling at Ixtaca has intercepted high-grade mineralization in horizontal and vertical extents. These results may extend the further known strike and vertical area of Ixtaca zone. Currently, there are three drills on the site, in which two will continue drilling at Ixtaca. Almaden will make use of the third drill to examine numerous additional targets outside Ixtaca.
The collars of TU-11-18 and 20 have been drilled -50 and -60° and they are situated 50 meters along the strike from TU-11-15 and 17. The assay results from further three holes, TU-11-18 through 20 are pending
