MONTREAL, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - (TSX-V:SSM): Lorne Woods, President of
Sunset Cove Mining reports the following results from surface samples
taken on its silver- polymetallic Carolay Property in the province of
La Libertad in Peru.
"The results that are coming from each of our exploration activities are
providing key information regarding the potential of the Carolay
property." said Woods. "Each piece is helping us to fill in the picture
of what we have."
The company's technical team took three rock chip samples from a steeply
dipping brecciated sulphide vein located 625 meters east of and
sub-parallel to the Carolay Vein that had been exposed during roadway
Samples averaged more than 43 g/t Ag over a 3.25 meter wide section of
the breccia. More sampling needs to be undertaken to establish the full
width of the breccia zone.
A channel chip sample of 0.25 m width across the breccia zone yielded 91
g/t Ag, >1% Pb and >1% Zn; a second channel chip sample of 1.5 meters
length taken from the hanging wall immediately adjacent to, but not
including the breccia, ran 33 g/t Ag, 0.49% Pb and >1.0% Zn.
A third channel chip sample of 1.5 meters length was taken in a similar
manner from the foot wall and ran 6.4 g/t Ag, 0.15% Pb and 0.82%
In addition, Sunset submitted one sample from the breccia for
metallurgic testing to the laboratory of the National University of
Engineering (Universidad National de Ingeniería) "UNI" the results of
this test were taken to K.W. QUIMICA GERMANA S.A.C. for verification.
Both laboratories are based in Lima, Peru.
The results from the rougher concentrate for silver showed 74.5%
recovery with a grade of 10.6 oz/t Ag; results for lead gave 93.0%
recovery with a grade of 35.2% Pb. The ore was termed docile with low
consumption of chemical reagents and a low presence of contaminants
Lorne Woods, president of Sunset Cove would also like to welcome Sr.
Arnaldo Leon to the Board of the company. Sr. Leon has a long career as
a mining consultant and engineer who has worked with the World Bank and
the Inter-American Development Bank.
In addition he is the founder of Arnaldo Leon & Associates, a mining
consultancy to both Peruvian and International mining companies.
