Tumi Resources has declared that it has completed 1,137.65 m, totaling four diamond drill holes at its Sala project in Sweden. The company has obtained assays for the three holes drilled at the project.
According to Mr. David Henstridge, Tumi’s President, the drilling program showed that mineralization at the Sala project continues to plunge towards the northern part from the previous mine area and stays exposed. The company has planned to submit a mining lease in order to enclose both this region and the silver-zinc mineralization, situated approximately 300 m towards the western part of this area.
Permission was given to the company to drill from the underground workings of the nearby Tistbrottet dolomite mine, which has been placed the drill location to 250 m of the projected down-plunge expansion of the previous mineralization at the Sala project.
The company drilled a total of four holes from one site, and completed a fan of drill holes by means of the projected mineralization region. A zone of mineralized sulphide was cut within dolomite in all the holes, containing uneven amounts of galena, pyrrhotite, pyrite and sphalerite. This zone sharply dips towards the western part and seems to show the down-plunge expansion of the mineralization at the Sala mine.
Tumi observed silver alloy or native silver in a number of holes that were not identified in the drilling results. Therefore, the company has resubmitted 14 samples from the holes SAA12-010 and SAA12-011 for fire screen assay in order to examine the precision of the reported results.
