VANCOUVER, Sept. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company"), (TSXV: TK; Frankfurt: TLD;
Pinksheets: TKRFF), announces the results of an on-going detailed mapping and rock sampling
program conducted northwest of Zone 1.
A zone of highly fractured and oxidized sandstone was found about 100 m
northwest of the site of fanned drill holes CDD-21 to CDD-23. These
holes discovered wide intercepts of silver mineralization where no
historical workings along high grade veins exist on surface.
Two lines of contiguous chip/channel samples, 20 m and 25 m long and
located about 20 m apart, were taken. Along one line a contiguous 16 m
section averaged just over 20 g/t Ag and 22 m interval averaged just
under 1,000 ppm lead. These are considered significant results as the
surface outcrops would be leached and not reflecting the actual metal
content at depth. The section between the drill site, mentioned above,
and this area is along steep terrain that cannot be accessed from
surface. This target area has been included in the new drill permit
application currently being reviewed and processed.
Mapping and sampling continues to focus on the large transverse fault
that marks the western margin of the mineralized zones found on the
property. This fault is believed to be partially responsible for the
ground preparation and mineralization at Colquipucro.
