1. Downhole distances represent apparent widths, although the
orientation of the interpreted mineralized zone is such that they are
close to true widths.
2. Holes No. 1, 3, 6 and 7 had no significant results. Hole No. 4 was
A full list of assays will shortly be available on our website, www.armadilloresources.com.
Mineralization consists of sphalerite, silver-bearing jamesonite, stibnite and native silver disseminated within a tabular, steeply-dipping zone of quartz breccia. The zone varies in apparent width from 8.5 metres in Hole 8 to 12.5 metres in Hole 2. The entire mineralized section is hosted in laminated limestones and calcareous phyllites.
From the results of the 2009 drill program a mineralized zone has been identified over a strike of 100 metres to a depth of 50 metres with an average thickness of 10 metres open at both ends and at depth. Management is particularly encouraged by the +5-metre intervals in holes 2, 5 and 8 that average in excess of 0.5 grams gold per tonne.
Armadillo has also appointed Stephen Wetherup, PGeo, to the Board as an ambitious 2010 summer program is planned to complete the recommendations in the 2009 independent NI 43-101 Technical Report.
