Casa Minerals Farshad Shirvani, President & CEO Interview
Casa Minerals Inc. Discovers 231 g/t Silver, 6.15% Zinc and >1.0% Copper in Strong Zone of Zinc-Silver-Copper Mineralization located 1 km South of Golden Dragon Discovery on Pitman Project
Casa Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: Casa; OTC: CASXF; Frankfurt: 0CM) (the “Company” or “Casa”) is pleased to announcethat recent work on its 100% owned Pitman Property has identified a possiblysignificant zone of mixed sulphide mineralization in an area located 1 km southof the Company’s Golden Dragon (“GD”) high grade gold discovery, reported on October 16, 2018. Prospecting, rock and soil geochemical sampling of the newly discovered area that has been named“Dragon Tale” (“DT”) returned assays as high as 231 grams per tonne Silver and6.15% Zinc. Work has not shown limits of the zone but mineralization was found in outcrops in an area of 1.4 km by 0.7km and possibly-related geochemical soil anomalies continue in all directions.
Mr. Farshad Shirvani, President and CEO, states that “The recent success continues a series of significant discoveries on the 100% owned Pitman Property. We are very pleased with this new mineral zone that is less than 1 km from the Golden Dragon where surface samples as high as 574 grams gold and 109 grams silver per tonne were reported. The new area is easily accessed for further work, including drilling and, possibly, bulk sampling. Considering the close proximity of the discoveries, we are looking at this historic prospect in a new light.”.
Casa’s Pitman property work since 2008 has included prospecting, geological mapping and geochemical sampling, and has included more than 1009geochemical soil and 269 rock samples. An airborne geophysical survey was completed in October of this year(results pending data processing). The“DT” zone of mixed sulphides is exposed along a 320 metre length of a recently constructed logging road and irregularly in off-the-road outcroppings. Much of the adjoining terrain is covered by dense forest and by glacial alluvium.
The following table includes analyses of selected samples from bedrock outcroppings:
