High Desert Gold (HDG) has discovered two new excellent gold, silver and base metal mineralization areas, and also a skarn mineralization area at the San Antonio Project in Mexico.
One of the new mineralization regions, situated 2 km to the latest drilling’s northeast side, is featured by the mineralization that is present along a low-angle contact between calcareous sandstone and porphyritic rhyolite intrusive. The company has gathered the sample 45178 from a positive horizon in the sedimentary series and the samples 45174-45177 from the intrusive contact.
The President of HDG has commented that these new mineralization areas are having identical features to the newly drilled sites and returned 22.3 g/t silver, 3.029 g/t gold, 0.26% zinc and 0.32% lead over 10.6 m, increase the property potential and show the occurrence of broad mineralization of silver, gold and base-metal at the property.
The plan of the current drill program is to build on the knowledge obtained during the current drilling campaign. This drilling has discovered three mineralization areas, which is situated 2 km northeast and 1 km to the north of the drilling completed recently and a third region to the southeast. Mineralization including silver, gold, lead, zinc and copper is present in the favourable rocks in the limestone and sandstone units and along the point between carbonate and porphyritic rhyolite intrusive series. The location of the second mineralization zone is around 1 km north of the current drilling area. This zone is signified by the mineralization present in sandstone and calcareous shale’s favorable rock units.
The third area is situated about 2.5 km southeast of the current drilling and is characterized by a garnet skarn with and elevated metal values. The area may have a wide skarn or replacement mineralization connected with a quartz monzonite, situated in this region. This area samples have prominent values in copper, molybdenum, tungsten, bismuth, iron, zinc and lead.
HDG has showed the base metal and precious system at San Antonio during the current work and is wider than the area drilled previous this year.
