THE DRILL SERGEANT: Dark Horse Resources (ASX: DHR) has identified a further anomalous gold prospect at the company’s Cachi gold project in Argentina.
Dark Horse Resources identified the new prospect, named El Camino, from assays results from recent rock chip sampling, bringing the total number of prospects to fifteen in the southern half of the Cachi tenement.
The company explained the El Camino prospect is another high potential mineralised structure close to the south-eastern border of the caldera.
Fourteen rock chip samples were collected from over 900m of vein subcrop that returned anomalous gold and arsenic values averaging 0.4 grams per tonne gold and 540g/t arsenic, with maximum values of 1.1g/t gold, and 982g/t arsenic.
“This association of gold with high arsenic values appears to place EL Camino, along with Aurora, Vetas Cachi and Valiente, near the top of the mineralised epithermal system opening potential for high-grade gold discoveries with drilling,” Dark Horse Resources said in its ASX announcement.
