Tinka Resources Limited ("Tinka" or the "Company") announces that it has awarded a contract for an expanded geophysical survey at the Company's 100%-owned Ayawilca zinc and Colquipucro silver projects in Peru. It is expected that crews and equipment will be mobilized to site by the end of May.
- The new ground magnetic survey will significantly extend the coverage of detailed ground magnetics almost 10-fold by 26 km2 at the Ayawilca-Colquipucro project area.
- The new magnetic survey covers in excess of 260 line kilometres and is expected to identify new areas of potential zinc mineralization, as well as assist in the interpretation of regional and local structural controls. The data acquisition and interpretation of the data is expected to take around 8 weeks to complete.
- Magnetic susceptibility measurements have been carried out on more than 10,000 metres of drill core from 37 holes at the Ayawilca zinc project. It has been noted that there is a positive correlation between high readings of magnetic susceptibility and zinc mineralization in the cores.
- Detailed modelling of the magnetics, including both the surface and down-hole data, is now in progress for the Ayawilca area. The Company believes this modelling will improve the understanding of the controls to zinc mineralization at Ayawilca as well as improve targeting of drill holes for the upcoming drill programs during Q3-Q4, 2014.
The qualified person for the Company's projects, Mr. John Nebocat (P.Eng.), V.P. of Exploration for the Company, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
