Puma Exploration has reported the channel sampling results from the Dante Lens at Nicholas-Denys, situated in New Brunswick. The company has returned 239 g/t silver and 544 ppm bismuth over 6.3 m, 96 g/t silver over 17.5 m from the channel LBW, which is situated in the stripping region’s central portion.
The company has located the mineralization over the stripped area, whose overall length is 50 m and average thickness is 4 m. Puma also encountered a significant content of base metals and bismuth. The data received from a program of channel sampling is same as a horizontal hole drilled at the surface. The company gathered 528 channel samples from 16 channels on the Dante Lens.
In every direction, the Dante lens remains exposed, specifically to the southern part. Dispersed mineralization sulphide including high-grade content of silver is found in the channels’ south portion from L2W to L6W.
The company encountered 174 g/t silver and 4,2% lead+zinc, 129 g/t silver and 10,7% lead+zinc, 124 g/t silver and 8,4% lead+zinc as high-grade samples in T11-25. The grab and channel samples were gathered from the T11-25 that is situated 20 m towards the Dante Striping’s southern part. The stripping region will be expanded to a minimum of 40 m toward south.
The company has confirmed the mineralization continuity at the Dante Lens over 200 m of strike towards the main stripping region’s western part by three more trenches, which are spaced 25 to75 m apart. Puma has gathered grab samples from the sulphide zones in every trench. High-grade silver is identified in the individual channel samples compiled from the huge sulphide zone at Dante lens.
The silver discovery model at Nicholas-Denys has been authenticated by the new lens discovery. Two programs have been conducted to drill 12 holes, wherein 5 reconnaissance holes are drilled 6.3 km away from the second main faults and 7 holes are drilled at the Dante Lens. The drilling results are still pending.
