Early deformation of the supracrsutal rocks has resulted in subvertical, tightly folded geological units, and later gold mineralisation is typically characterised by similarly orientated sub-vertical zones of 1 to 15 metres in width.
As shown in Figure 6 below, drill results over these large gold in soil anomalies successful identified mineralization associated with a network of subparallel N020[degrees] directed steep shear zones hosting both subvertical and shallow quartz veins of different nature, and strong hydrothermal alteration.
Targets are interpreted to represent subvertical sulphide-rich stratigraphic bodies and shear zones.
Comparison with Bottle Creek indicates the past drilling is not a complete test, especially if mineralisation is subvertical or dipping west.
It is different from Achradocrinus in the conical rather than rounded cup, wider radial facets that are inclined rather than subvertical, in the larger anal plate, different plating of the anal opening, and the broad rather than narrow axial canal of the stem facet.
The second type of model was assigned a discrete fracture network comprised of one subvertical (mean dip 80[degrees]) and one subhorizontal (mean dip 10[degrees]) joint sets.
We can also see the slight lateral change of resistivities in the middle part of the ERT profile "03" in Figure 9(c), which could point to the presence of a subvertical fault, possibly the Ionakhsh Fault crossing the target region in this area.
With a vein that is between four to six feet wide and a subvertical dip, this will be very favorable for extraction, according to CEO Juan David Perez Schile.
