VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 10, 2021 /CNW/ - MANTARO PRECIOUS METALS CORP. (TSXV: MNTR) (OTCQB: MSLVF) (FSE: 9TZ) (the "Company" or "Mantaro") is pleased to announce that it has received positive results, including multiple high-grade silver and gold assays, from recent sampling at the San Jose Silver Property, located in Peru.
- Surface rock chip assays for 140 samples returning silver and gold grades.
- 11 samples with greater than 100 g/t Ag, including 376 g/t Ag.
- 7 samples with greater than 1 g/t Au, including 6.44 g/t Au.
- Seasoned technical team has identified seven (7) new veins during initial reconnaissance mapping at San Jose Silver Property
Field work at San Jose was designed as a first pass sampling program of the Utcas East and Utcas West targets. Reconnaissance mapping resulted in the identification of seven new veins — the two larger named Ponderosa and Peguycuta (see Figure 1).
Dr. Chris Wilson, Director and CEO of Mantaro, comments "I am extremely happy with the progress made given the short duration of the first field program. The discovery of seven new veins — within the more extensive framework of known veins — speaks to the exploration potential of the project. It is also extremely encouraging that many of the surface samples assayed above 3 oz/t silver and 1 g/t gold —which are significantly anomalous given the extensively weathered and oxidized nature of vein outcrops".
Mantaro is planning a more extensive field program for early 2022. The San Jose Silver Property, which is 100% owned, is comprised of five mineral concessions totaling 3,300 hectares and is located 180 km north of Lima. The Company anticipates that the San Jose Silver Property has an intermediate sulphidation epithermal deposit. These deposits are characterized by vertical mineralization over 100's of metres and are usually high-grade in nature, which makes them attractive exploration targets.
From 2013 to 2018, a small scale underground mine was operation on the San Jose vein. An estimated 42,000 tonnes of material was extracted with reported silver grades between 15 to 20 ounces per tonne. Production exploited approximately 200 meters of the western margin of San Jose on four levels. *Information derived from Pan American Silver Internal Report (2018), titled Reporte De Reconocimiento Geologico, "Proyecto – Mina San Jose, Cajatambo".
