VANCOUVER, Dec. 3 /CNW/ - Golden Peaks Resources Ltd. (TSX: GL) (the "Company") is pleased to report, it has completed a geostatistical analysis of the geochemistry of the mineralized systems present on the La Fortuna Gold Project, Argentina.
Geostatistics is a branch of statistics focusing on spatiotemporal datasets. Developed originally to predict probable distributions for mining operations, it is currently applied in diverse disciplines including geochemistry.
Chemical analyses of samples from all of the zones were evaluated by several geostatistical methods. The significant conclusions are:
1. The mineralization is categorized as low sulphidation type.
2. The greatest enrichment in gold is found in the T-11, G and CR zones
where the gold to silver ration is 1:1. The enrichment is associated
with higher mineralizing temperatures likely focused by the
intersection of the A and CR Structures.
3. Regression analysis identified a distinctive population of high value
gold assays associated with high copper values. In the T-11/G/CR
zones this gold population is associated with quartz veins/breccias
the roots of which are the primary targets of the planned drill
4. The most prospective areas are in the northwest: T-11, G and CR
The T-11 and G zones are located in the northeast part of the project where the A and CR Structures intersect.
This press release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Kieran Downes, P.Geo., President of Golden Peaks Resources Ltd. and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, under whose direction the exploration programs are being carried out.
