TORONTO — Trigon Metals Inc. (TSX-V: TM) (“Trigon” or the “Company”) announces results from drilling of new mineralization targets at Kombat Mine in Namibia (the “Project”), in the area of the Kavango Pit, along the Kombat trend mineralization.
Jed Richardson, President and CEO, commented, “Kavango drilling and the early mining in this area have been very encouraging. Mineralization has been far more consistent and massive, matching the nature of the mineralization we find in the underground mine and other areas of the Kombat trend. These initial results confirm our confidence that our revised exploration and production focus will provide significant upside.”
Highlights of the Drill Results
Holes from the Kavango Pit area:
Hole CenMid01 (azimuth 350.1, dip -77.0)
- 5.1m of 3.0% copper and 13.6 g/t silver, from 8.0m,
- And, 6.9m of 1.6% copper and 13.5g/t silver, from 16.1m.
Hole CenMid01A (azimuth 180.0, dip -76.8)
- 11.0m of 2.6% copper, 75.0m down the hole
Hole CenMid02 (azimuth 201.6, dip -67.4)
- 9.0m of 2.7% copper and 9.1 g/t silver, from 44.0m
Hole CenMid04 (azimuth 177.8, dip -61.7)
- 6.0m of 2.4% copper and 5.6 g/t silver, from 55.0m
- And, 2m of 1.2% copper, from 67m.
Holes from connecting the Kavango mineralization to the East 400 (Fat Avo) area:
Hole Infill05 (azimuth 186.6, dip -70.7)
- 2m of 1.0% copper from 23.0m
- And, 4.0m of 0.8 copper from 28.0m
- And 7.0m of 1.4% copper from 40.0m (see Figure 3)
Hole Infill06 (azimuth 181.0 , dip -73.2)
- 6.0m of 1.2% copper from 20.0m
- 10.0m of 1.7% copper from 56.0mHoles are following the mineralization from the area being mined eastward. Holes with the same number and a letter designation are drilled from the same location and different inclinations. Holes marked infill are holes drilled between the Kavango pit zone and the Fat Avo, a high-grade mineralized body previously identified by historic underground drilling. The drilling between the bodies is newly identified mineralization.
