VANCOUVER, Nov. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Pasinex Resources Ltd. (CNSX: PSE) (the
"Company" or "Pasinex") Pasinex is pleased to announce that its
50%-owned company, Horzum AS (a 50 / 50 joint venture between Pasinex
and Turkish mining company Akmetal AS), is in preparation for
underground percussion drilling operations on its Pinargozu License in
the province of Adana, Turkey.
Rehabilitation of the 700 Level gallery to allow drill entry was started
in mid-September and while blasting a small expansion to the gallery to
facilitate the changing of drill rods, massive high grade (>25%) zinc
oxide mineralisation was encountered.
In order to assess this mineralisation and its 3-dimensional disposition
without compromising the planned drill setup position, a separate
gallery was developed starting approximately seven metres away from the
planned drill position. This gallery quickly encountered the massive
mineralisation which includes massive accumulations of galena and
sphalerite, with lesser barite, and abundant malachite staining, with
some disseminated chalcopyrite. A mineralised volume of approximately
10 meters by 3 meters by 4 meters has been removed in an attempt to
expose the geological controls on the mineralisation, which are not yet
The narrow-gauge percussion drilling planned for Pinargozu will begin
shortly. Fourteen boreholes are planned for a total drilling program of
approximately 800 meters. All these boreholes had been planned with a
view to discovering oxide mineralisation similar to the oxide
mineralisation historically mined at Pinargozu.
The high proportion of sulphide mineralisation currently being seen,
however, both strengthens Pasinex's view that Pinargozu is a lead-zinc
deposit of the "Carbonate Replacement Type", and makes it much more
likely that the drilling program will encounter sulphide as well as
The historical Pinargozu Mine lies 5.25 kilometers to the north of the
Horzum Mine, which historically produced approximately 4 million tons
of zinc oxide and sulphide ore, and which is currently being actively
explored by drilling for extensions to mined-out resources. The
Pinargozu Mine is easily accessible by a gravel road connecting to
Highway 815 and lies on strike with the significant zinc and lead in
soil anomaly on Horzum AS' Akkaya License, reported in Pasinex' news
release dated 19 September, 2012; Horzum AS has recently applied for
multiple drill site permits at the Akkaya project.
Steve Williams, president of Pasinex, stated, "We are looking forward to
realizing further positive results from Pinargozu, consistent with the
type of mineralization seen in this area."
