Capella Resources Finds New Mineralization Zones at Lajitas Project

Capella Resources has identified two recent mineralization zones at its Lajitas gold-copper project in northern Chile through the airborne hyperspectral imaging survey, which was completed recently by SpecTIR of Nevada.

This new two mineralization zones include surface display of the alteration minerals halloysite, alunite, illite and jarosite. The location of these zones is 1.8 km southeast and south of Santa Fe gold resource at an altitude of 4900 m.

The South zone is 400 m in diameter and is equitant and the length and breadth of the Southeast zone is 500 m and 200 m respectively. Geologists have traveled and collected a sample from the area in late May and the assay results are pending now.

The location of the Lajitas project of the company is on the Maricunga Gold-Copper Belt in the Republic of Chile, which is around 700 km northwest of Santiago in Chile. This project has 1,600 ha of exploitation and exploration claim areas.

The airborne scanners use hyperspectral imaging technology to record concurrently 357 spectral bands in the electromagnetic spectrum and are the latest surveying technology that uses reflected solar energy to find the precise surficial alteration minerals. The hyperspectral imagery by employing a high-fidelity airborne sensor gives a unique hydrothermal alteration mineralogy evaluation at the Lajitas project.
