Puma Exploration Discovers Main Mineralized Lens at Nicholas-Denys

Puma Exploration has identified a main mineralized lens at the Nicholas-Denys, which encountered up to 0.27% bismuth and 1,020 g/t silver. The location of Dante lens is along a second E-W main fault zone, which is located 500 m towards the northern part of the Rocky-Brook-Millstream fault that is connected with the Haché, Henry East, Henry, PineTree, and Shaft lenses.

The mineralization at the Dante lens seems to be as dispersed to huge sulphide lenses that differ in width from 0.5 m to 25 m, and NW-SE formations, which are rich in silver and several parallel rusty sulphide veins that vary in width from 10 cm to 1 m. the company has cleared an area of 0.9 ha and has exposed the Dante lens for 0.015 ha.

The company has gathered 66 grab samples totally from the stripped region. It has sampled 550 m, totaling 17 channels, over the Main Dante Lens and is waiting for the results.

The mineralization continuity at the Dante Lens has been shown over 200 m of strike towards the western part of the major stripping region by three further trenches that are spaced at 25 to75 m apart.

The Main Fault zone that is connected with the Millstream Iron and Beresford Copper deposits has 10 km of favourable corridor additionally. The company has drilled five reconnaissance holes in order to confirm the Silver discovery model utilized at Nicholas-Denys and to test the identical mineralization along the strike present on the Main Fault zone. The location of these holes is 6.3 km away from the Dante lens.
