Trigon Metals Inc. announces the delineation of a new area of mineralization referred to as the Central Pit southwest extension, and results from recently drilled holes in the East 900 area. The drilling is part of 10,000m planned programme aimed at resource definition and new exploration for the central license area at the Kombat Mine.
Drilling at the Central Pit SW extension has outlined newly discovered mineralization that is expected to be incorporated into a mining plan that will result in expansion of the planned central pit. The results illustrate continuity of the mineralization with a structure that runs the length of the central pit.
It is notable that the resources of the central pit and extension do not sit above the old mined out areas but occur north of the underground mining cap and, as such, have properties distinct to those found underground. East 900 is a highly prospective area with existing resources for open pit mining. Drilling continues in this area and to the east.
Mineralization is very shallow and remains open in all directions. The exploration work is moving to the east on strike with main mine workings, as such this represents the greatest potential for an expansion of the current surface resource. East 900 is east of the historic mining at surface or underground and is on strike with the historic underground development, as such it appears to be very similar to the mineralized areas mined from underground.
Samples were prepared and analyzed using Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry by African Laboratory Services Namibia at Kombat Namibia.
