Puma Exploration has announced further trenching results from the Nicholas-Denys silver project, New Brunswick. The company has identified three further main gold and silver-rich formations, encountering up to 23.3 g/t gold, 2,090 g/t silver, 47.9% lead and 11.0% zinc in the Henry region.
These main structures seem to appear like three separate corridors, having a width of up to 100 m and spanning 800 m and included several parallel rusty sulphide veins and breccia zones of different widths. The company is examining these structures to play a significant role in the enhancement of gold and silver of the major immense sulphide lenses, which are situated along the regional foliation identified at Haché, Henry East, Pinetree and Shaft lenses. In every trench, Puma has gathered representative samples from the mineralized zones.
The company planned the trenching campaign to analyze the intersection of NW-SE structures, which are rich in gold and silver, with the east-west sulphide horizons that have the discovery model at the project. The fresh discoveries have validated the discovery model’s efficiency that is being used at the project and will be used over the property’s complete 10 km length.
Puma is expecting the additional assay results from the remaining trenches that will offer further information on the mineralization distribution of silver and gold at the Nicholas-Denys project. The trench results have clearly shown that the project has an extensive gold-silver mineralization system, which is exposed to depth. The company will assess all the trench results and has intended further exploration depending on those trench results.
